    I hadn’t been here since before Covid. Back then, it was one of my favorites. I brought 9 business associates. The service, food and location made this the perfect choice. It felt like home!

    The service was on the slower and inattentive side. The food is good. This place is good for something very casual and won’t be swayed by the restaurant.

    I live in Haddonfield, Camden County but come up often for client meetings. This is one of my go to dinner spots. I took two customers last night and decided to go with the penne vodka with asparagus and shrimp this time. Delicious!!!! We also split 3 desserts: peanut butter ice cream pie, mint chocolate ice cream pie, and coconut custard pie. All fantastic! Gianna’s is an all around great restaurant. I have recommended and sent several family members here to eat as well. Brian J.

    Always love going for lunch or dinner. This time was for lunch and I brought along 4 guests. You’re always greeted when you enter. The bread is always outstanding. Our server for either lunch or dinner is top notch. I highly recommend the Chicken or eggplant parmigiana with fresh vegetables.

    We dine at Gianna's a few times per year and are never disappointed. Great food, service, and value for sure at this gem Italian restaurant. The gnocchi bolognese is great and the veal parm and chicken parm are solid. Great selection of desserts. Family style is great for a group. We will return every time we're in the area.

    We are regulars at Gianna's for over 20 years. The good and service cannot be beat! Great little family-owned restaurant in Carlstadt, NJ, near racetrack. Great veal parmigiana cheese with linguini. The cream puff with vanilla ice-cream and fudge sauce was huge and to die for! Go there.

    This was a pre-concert dinner. Chose Gianna’s because of their location. Concert was great but the dinner was FANTASTIC. Excellent attentive servers brought us well prepared, fresh and delicious appetizer of Fried Zucchini and entrees, Sole Francese and Chicken Picatta. We were too full for dessert. If ever I am back in the area, concert or not, I will definitely be eating again at Gianna’s.

    This is a reguar place for us. We also always get the same dish. Salad Chicken Parm Penne ala Vodka Ghost Pines Pinot Noir If there are two of you, the family style order will have you bringing home some of the chicken which is fine by me. Love the food. Great food, nice people. You won't be disappointed.
