Like being transported to Rome!
My family is from Naples, and I feel at home at Giano.
Food like my mother made!
Such a nice and enjoyable evening. Food was delicious and the staff were great. Also, very affordable by nyc standards!
Very good Italian restaurant on East 7th Street. Pastas are great. Meatball appetizer was good, but meatballs were a little salty - the best thing was the risotto special, the burrata and the mushroom pasta - delicious! Restaurant is small and very loud - but a nice ambiance.
Delicious! Great, charismatic owner. Big portions
We were so welcomed just like we were al local... We were recommended some amazing specials and we're not rushed.
I felt like I was back in Italy!
Homemade pastas Best I ever had!
Our wine, lasagna, and tagliatelle bolognese were excellent. Service friendly and prompt. Only disappointment was the chocolate lava cake.
First of all, and most importantly, the food was delicious. All of the pastas are homemade and so good. We had the lobster ravioli special and the bolognese. The bolognese was PERFECTION. Great portion size and great taste. The service was great, and we were treated like family by the owners who are also the servers. Felt like we were really back in Italy!
10/10. Staff was incredibly accommodating and the food was fantastic, as always.
Cute wine bar !
I was recommended this a while ago and it didn't disappoint.
Our server was absolutely wonderful and fun, she seemed to really care if we had a good time!
We have the tuna croquettes, and a meat/cheese plate to start, then we had the Amatriciano and the Lamb ragu, both were amazing.
Some of the best fresh pasta in the city so far !
They have a great wine list , however only 2 beers.
Very cute and bustling environment and beautiful decor, definitely recommend.
We had a magnificent dinner at Giano recently. The owners are so friendly, the atmosphere lovely and most of all, the impeccably fresh and tasteful dinner—salads and pasta are to die for. Probably the best pasta I have ever had. Highly recommend!
Nice place to get a classy Italian dinner and wine with friends before a night out. Lovely Italian vibe with super tasty food.
Great food and service. Went for my son's bday while celebrating in NYC(from SC) Great Tartufo and gnocchi. Homemade pasta and tiramisu. The Barbara and bresaola was to die for. Great prices too
We found Giano's by accident and it was such a pleasurable find! It is cozy and welcoming with interesting decor and nicely dim. The waiter was animated, funny, warm and attentive. The cheese ( burrata) had JUST come from Italy two days earlier... mouth watering. I had the tagliatelle with mushrooms and peas, it was delicious. The Argula salad was huge, fresh and delicious. The waiter invited us to combine the items on the menu in any way we wanted. I am a vegetarian and so I appreciated that offer. The Italian beer - Menabrea- I had for the first time - was delicious! The tiramisu and hot chocolate lava desserts (with raspberry sauce) were really amazing- maybe the best tiramisu I have ever had. I also tasted the ravioli with butter and sage- delicious. A lovely evening. Highly recommending it. Thank you!
Amazing charismatic staff! Loved it all.
This is a perfect neighborhood gem. The food, service and atmosphere are all outstanding. The pasta is absolutely incredible and they have good wines.
Two thumbs way up, Giano is a total winner!
Have been here once before this, and would be happy to come back in the future. Food is fresh and delicious. Service is enthusiastic. The value of the experience is exceptional for the price. If you are looking for something really fancy, this might not be the best place for such an occasion. However, if you're looking for great food at a reasonable price, definitely give this place a try.
Have been here for the 2nd time, 1st time was two years ago (I’m not in NYC that often). This is the best Italian restaurant in North America that I’ve ever been to (and I’ve been at a few)!
Five stars on all categories. HIGHLY recommended for those who like ORIGINAL and REAL Italian food.
Love it. One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. Food is always amazing, Paulo is a great entertainer and the specials are yummy. Would highly recommend.
This place was awesome, so glad we came here. Food, service, ambiance all perfect!
Would definitely recommend. Pasta was fresh and EXCELLENT. Service was good. Wine reasonably priced. Will go back.
very good service, but disappointed in the food
Very expensive for quality
Food and service are always great.
Very good food. Great environment! Perfect for a date. Nice and quiet and great service!
Great experience for a group of five friends. The food was excellent - my eyes actually tested with joy when I ate the gnocchi and rigatoni amatriciana. The service was truly wonderful. We felt cared for and like special guests. (Note: we had a 6PM reservation on a Saturday)
Thank you, Giano, for such an impeccable dining experience. I will recommend you to everyone and will certainly be back again !
Food and service were excellent. It was tad too dark at our table
Best pasta I have ever had in my entire life. I completely recommend and cannot wait to go back.
I bumped into this place back in January and could not wait to come back. The food is so authentic, and delicious. The wine is fantastic, and everyone there is very knowledgable and helpful. Can't wait to go back.
entree was mediocre - got the spaghetti pomodoro. Tiramisu was good. Service great
Always such a good experience here.
Best restaurant in NYC
Amazing pasta and such friendly service. Restaurant has great ambience too. Will definitely be back!
Giano has some of the best Italian food outside of Italy that I have ever eaten. It is truly, authentic Italian food - not Italo-American cuisine. The bigoli al ragu d’agnello and the spaghetti alla gricia con tartufo are some of my favorite dishes! The waitstaff is knowledgeable, attentive and friendly.
Delicious and fun!
I've been to Giano many times and love it every single time. Though I no longer live in New York, I come back for my birthday whenever I can. The pasta is exceptional and so reasonably priced. The desserts, especially the creme brulee, are also excellent. You really can't go wrong with any dish here, and with the friendly, excellent service and beautiful ambiance this is a must-visit.
Highly recommend! The food was delicious and the service was great. The pasta is homemade every day and some of the best I’ve had outside of Italy.
Sisters in town. Nice family meal with fun service! Pasta was delicious.
Food was delicious. Our waiter was delightful. The homemade pasta alone is well worth the trip.
We had great time!
Our waiter was phenomenal, very attentive,his recommendations for our appetizers ended up tasting wonderful, our entrees served promptly but we were not rushed though our dinner whatsoever, quaint lovely romantic atmosphere however lighting so fun difficult to read from our menus,would definitely recommend this restaurant for authentic Italian food with decent portion size for nyc upscale dining.
