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!!!

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.

Restaurant is beautiful, nice music, good ambience. Food was not that good to be honest. My wife asked for pasta with shrimps, and specifically requested it should be NOT SPICY at all, but when they brought the dish it was mildly spicy, so she could not eat it. Rest of the food was good, ans they also offered desert on the house for the problem described above

Gianna's never disappoints! Met friends for a quiet, delicious dinner. It was all that we expected. Fried Calamari appetizer, crispy crusting, perfectly fried. delicious. we ordered salmon and chicken dishes. All perfect, sauces were light, not overwhelming, yet delicious. desserts, home made no less, awesome. All capped with a nice espresso and an after dinner drink. Another awesome Fri evening with great friends & great food! Do we really need to spend $20 to go to NYC + $50 for parking. No thanks! Great food in NJ at Gianna's!

Our dinner was a bit under $100. We ordered Eggplant Rolatini for an app Chicken Parm and Chicken Piccata. Very small portions and the chicken was pounded paper thin. The piccata Chicken tasted old not tender. We were both hungry when we left. This never happens here. The pasta prices are ridiculous. They are surely making up for lost revenues from your pocket. We use to go here all the time and didn't mind paying the price because it was a decent size meal and tasted good.

The food was not to brag about. People were nice but we wouldn't go back. Shrimp overcooked, pasta flavorless and the lasagna was not as good as Stouffers. Appetizer and salad came out together.

Was a little cold at first, but then they adjusted the temp. As far as food WOW!!!! the Gnochi was out of this world!! The Bolognese sauce was on point. I have had this dish in Italy and I must say it was better than the mother country!!

Got a reservation last minute for Valentines Dinner. It was cool. If I’m in the area again I would go. They give you a lot of food. Steak was great.
