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

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.

Try it.

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.

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!!

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!!!

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.

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.

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.
