This is the story of Paolo and Matteo, two guys from Milano who had an idea. Let's take the heart of our tradition and fuse it with the exciting innovations happening in Italian cooking, they said. Inspired by the Roman deity Janus who looked to the future as well as the past, Giano respects tradition and embraces the future. We like to think of our little corner in the east village as quite special, and hope you will too

Everything was perfect: amazing food, great service, such a hidden gem!!
Incredible meal and service. Our waiter was entertaining, knowledgeable and prompt. The prices were fantastic and the overall experience was excellent. Delicious food from the apps to dessert. Will definitely be coming back!
This was my third time here. I am from Miami and I make it a point to go here every time I’m in New York. Hands down the best restaurant ever! The food is amazing the service is amazing, there is not one plate on this menu that isn’t perfect.
Best servers in Manhattan. They’re authentic Italian entertainers!
Loved the burrata and the ragu. Order the barbaresco.
This place is a gem. The server was so funny and kept us entertained. The specials were so hard to chose from, but we did this Burrata with dried beef and it was delicious. For dinner we each got a pasta and both were delicious. Prices were great. Also this place seems to have a backyard, which we would love to try out when the weather is nice. Will be back.
Incredible dining experience to ring in the New Year!! Make sure to try to burrata or the ravioli - must have!
Amazing food and service. Was blown away by the quality!
Amazing service and delicious food. I come back every single time I visit NYC. I recommend this restaurant to every friend and family member traveling to NYC. I would eat here every day if I could
Giano is our go to neighborhood spot - the food is incredible and the staff is so warm and welcoming
Cute place with great pastas. Service was terrific
Great pasta !
They provided a nice candle and a little song for a bday celebration
Great food and friendly staff.
Amazing experience! Very immersive (Italian speaking and the food leached authenticity), heathy (checked all vaccination cards), incredible food, and the waitstaff is informative yet fun! Our waiter made us feel welcome & has an excellent memory. The Burratta appetizer was awesome. The sausage ragout rigatoni was my choice-would recommend.
The food was absolutely AMAZING!!!!! Our waiter was fabulous and the music was great. We had an amazing meal after a really long day and couldn’t have asked for anything better.
Excellent experience from the moment we were greeted to the fine food and service. Highly recommend the restaurant.
Pasta is always hand made. Everything tastes amazing. I feel like I’m being transported to Milano every time we eat here.
Everything was lovely except for the creepiest host/ waiter (elderly man) in the entire world. Genuinely made me and the whole party uncomfortable, he got unnecessarily physically close when speaking to us. He also touched me and my sisters arms way too many times when he should not have touched us at all. Giano please do something about this! It is so unfortunate to have a perfectly good restaurant experience tainted by a creepy staff member.
Perfection at its best. When I am in town Giano is a must. This is a great small neighborhood gem. Wine bottles are reasonable priced. Great portions.
BEST AUTHENTIC ITALIAN IN NYC
Great romantic date spot.
Owners are real Italians. Service is amazing.
To get more authentic Italian food than this you need to a plane ticket.
