Gianna's is an old world style Italian restaurant that serves very generous family style portions for two or more as well as single orders if desired. Specials change daily using the freshest ingredients available, and all desserts are made on premise daily. 1.9 miles from Met Life Stadium and the Meadowlands, New Jersey.
Lightly breaded and topped with mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce
The food and service was great as usual. Can't wait to go back.
You will never be disappointed at Gianna's! From our hostess aka seater, to our great server this is a must. We have been here many times and once had a repast after my mother-in-law's funeral. Everything was perfect. The food is always piping hot when it comes out and their bread is the best! Fave is rigatoni with sausage and broccoli rabe and the best desert is the huge cream puff stuffed with ice cream. Keep up the good work guys...we will be back soon! 1/1/22
Great Food, Great Service!
Truly my favorite restaurant
Food is spectacular, fresh and tasty. Service is quick and the wait staff is very attentive. Very relaxed atmosphere, feels like you’re home.
This is out "go to" restaurant. Great family sized platters.
Try the chicken parm and the Ghost Pines wine!
Been going here for years.
Did take out during Covid.
The food at Gianna's is amazing. I took my team of 10 for a holiday lunch. The staff was attentive, the cadence was perfect and my team thoroughly enjoyed or time together. We will definitely be returning.
The food was delicious, the service was great and the ambiance was festive.
Joanne is the best!!
Thank you for the excellent dinner! We were in town for the Army Navy game and wanted a great place to have a family meal and enjoy each other. Giannas did just that for us!! The meal was excellent and drinks were delicious!
Delicious food!! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Being from out of town we arrived at Gianna's with our expectations as empty as our bellies. However, our experience at Gianna's proved all of the superlative online reviews were well earned. Even though we dined in, boy did Gianni's deliver. The chef was like our own culinary Uber driver, bringing one delectable dish after another from the kitchen to our table. A very fulfilling and satisfying meal, that nonetheless left my wife and I hungry for more. A two hour trip from our home does not seem unreasonable if Gianna's awaits at the end of the journey. Of course, the ride back...oh well...
This is my favorite restaurant in NJ. It’s also my favorite Italian restaurant. We love Gianna’s so much. The food is consistently the same and delicious every time. The staff treats you like family and the service is A++. The fish is fresh and the Italian flavors are perfect. I love all their dishes. You can tell each one is made with love. Thank you Gianna’s!!
Enjoyed a great meal with friend.
Excellent dinner with the family
Excellent food at reasonable prices. Large portions, less expensive than some Pizza take out places.
Certainly plan to visit again
Terrific local red sauce Italian will certainly come back!
Solid Restaurant. The food is good. The people are very nice. Good Italian dishes.
Good place for a nice always up to par Italian food
The food and service was great. The place needs updating. The both needs to be cleaned they are stained so not very attractive when you walk it. Overall very good just a bit dated.
I randomly picked this place on open table based on the food choices and reviews. I have to say I am tremendously pleased. The reviews are def accurate and the quality of food speaks for itself. We were 6 people and we cleaned out each plate. Service was exceptional and the staff were friendly and very loving. Wish I lived around to be a regular. But if I’m ever around again def coming back!!!
Terrific as always
Generous portions and great dishes served family style.
Fantastic service. Great ambiance.
Most of the food was great. Improvements needed in Gnocchi and Appetizers.
The food was excellent! The service was great! Staff was so friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant. FIVE STARS
Everything was absolutely delicious.
We had the Pappardelle Bolognese, Gnocchi, Chicken Rollatini and Filet Mignon - All Highly Recommend.
Great spot hidden behind Giants Stadium.
After reading the great reviews we decided to try Giana’s instead of our usual favorites. Was disappointed in my dining experience. Food was served lukewarm and veal had gristle in it. All in all it was a very mediocre dining experience.
the food and service were great!!
Our visit was the first time for the family , twins in our family were celebrating their birthdays. The food was excellent, service great. Best red sauce I’ve had in a restaurant in years. I had Filet of Sole Franchaise, the sauce was fantastic. Everyone else also really enjoyed their meals which included broccoli rabe, swordfish in wine sauce, chicken parmigiana, all very good. Only downside was that on the Open Table reservation it asked if there were any celebrations and I indicated it was for a birthday so I anticipated they would have addressed it at dessert time and brought the desserts out with two candles, one for each person celebrating. The wait staff did not do anything about the birthdays. Next time I will speak to the manager about any celebration ahead of time. WE WILL DEFINITELY GO BACK , and often.
The food was great as usual. The banana split ice cream cake was as good as dessert gets.
Our favorite place for dinner. Service. Ambiance. Food. One hundred percent!!
As always the food and service was excellent!
Great local place with a regular following (like us).
Get the chicken parm and penne. Scrumtious.
Can't go wrong with the Ghost Pines Pinot Noir either
I love Gianna's. Great Service, Food and Drinks. The staff is very hospitable and nice.
Great food and top notch service. Server was very attentive and each meal we ordered was phenomenal.
Great food great service had a great time
Birthday celebration. Very good experience.
Food was amazing, maybe best Italian I can remember eating, mussels, chicken parm, penne!! Amazing. But big no no .... no changing table in any bathrooms. Guess young children are frowned upon there. Other than that great food.
Disappointed all portions were family style and the option to order an individual portion was not available. Hope that’s not the new norm and this menu was only for Mother’s Day. Have been patronizing this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed with the quality of food or service.
This was our first time at Gianna's and we did enjoy our dinner. We started with calamari and shrimp in garlic sauce, both were good. Our dinners were filet of sole oreganato, chicken marsala, penne with vodka, and pappardelle w/ Mushrooms, Sausage & Marinara.
The only thing that I wanted more of were tentacles in the calamari.
