Description: GIANNI is a restaurant of elegant atmosphere. It is the perfect place to have dinner for the classical Italian cuisine admirer. GIANNI's menu is known for its rich selection of fresh fish & seafood. Several dishes are completed in the dining room in front of the customer. Our Italian head chef Costantino Veglianti works with passion and offers exceptional tastes that are made of the freshest and best quality ingredients. Therefore you can often find seasonal offers in the menu. GIANNI's wine card represents all parts of Italy and the wine is carefully selected among smaller and less known but very high quality producers. Welcome to Gianni!

If you are not obsessed to discover the local flavours and specialities, but you want a great dinner, Gianni is the perfect option.
Very nice place, very nice atmosphere, even nothing is truly special, and the food is very, very good. Not fantastic, not very creative, but honest and tasteful.
I tried a variety of appetizers, including vittello tonnato, beef carpaccio, burrata and some amazing fried shrimps, and for the main course I shared a huge sea bass in salt crust, which was also perfect.
This is not a touristic venue, but a place where you can find the right food.
P.S. Very good the wine list.

Went there for lunch, and they offer a verity of daily lunch dishes for what is considered pricy price and above the average , but I would say it’s worth it for sure !
The fish was very nice and they had a super delicious fresh watermelon juice !

Recommend it !

This place was recommended to us by friends who live in Tallin.
I ordered fish crusted in salt, my husband had pasta and so did the three kids. We liked our food very much. It was a Sunday night, so besides our table there were only two more couples eating. We liked our food and wine and overall had a very good experience.

Thank Nina T

I have been there now 2 times and same thing both times- good food, but not so good service. Taking plates away not even asking anything. Taking them away also when the other person in the table was still eating.
We went back the second time because the fish baked in salt was so good!!!
Also no cutlery for taking the vegetables and potatoes from the other plates.
Potatoes were forgotten and we got them when we already almost finished our fish.
When making our booking, I asked candles for the birthday dessert and that was just ignored.
No Thank You or Good Bye when going away...just staring at us....

So if you are looking for good food, but don't care for the service then this place is for you.

Dear Stiina,
We are very sad to hear that you had a disappointing experience in Gianni. We work every day hard to offer our guests superb experience and our goal is that everybody who visits Gianni leaves here happier than before. Sometimes though we make mistakes but we always try to learn from them, also this time.
In Gianni we use this practice that if someone has finsifed eating we take the plate away unless the cutlery is not placed so that it marks that the guest is not finished. We know that more conservative etiquette says that all people in the table must be finished. But over the times this trend has been changing and mostly by the behalf of the requests of the guests who prefer that the empty plates are taken away so there is more room left for placing the wine glass and these days also your mobile phone if you wish. You can always mention that you don't want the plates taken away and this is OK too. We also don't place extra cutlery for the garnish as it is usually not needed and makes more mess on the table. But certanly we can bring it if someone prefers so. We are not saying what is right or wrong, but this is how we practice and over the years we figured out that this works best for our guests. But we always try to be open minded for adaptions and special requests to give each guest personalized service.
I talked to the waitress who served you and there seemed to be a misunderstanding with the potatos. She somehow understood that you didnt want them. We are very sorry about this and the forgotten candles, which is hard to investigate as it was 3 months ago, but we admit this was our fault.
We are happy that you liked the food and we hope you give us another chance. We also offer you -15% from your next visit.
Kind regards,
Elen
