Terrific neighbor gem! Every dish was delicious. Great place for old friends to meet, talk and EAT!
always a great place and specials are always good. I have to write 50 characters but really don't need to say anything else.
Very Nice place, beautiful people. Great food, excellent service. Desserts are wonderful!
Needed to find a table for 10 people (at a solid place) on a Friday evening with less than 24 hours notice. Giano made it happen. The food was great and even after 6 bottles of wine, the tab came to about $50 a piece with tip included (didn't even do the price fix). Very impressed.
Eccentric waiter, amazing food, and a very welcoming atmosphere!
Excellent, real Italian food at a great price.
Giano is my favorite Italian restaurant in the boroughs. The food, ethos, and design are perfect. Service is terrific. And salutes to a restaurant that serves Italian food as Italians create it: flavorful, fresh, with a focus on textures and seasonings. Thank goodness for Giano and its staff. As Manhattan becomes more commercialized and landlords' power pushes New York further into a place of dated real estate laws and the home of the 1%, we have Giano. Bravo.
Lovely dinner. Very quiet and peaceful for pre theatre in the east village. Delicious food
Excellent food at a fair price.
Great food fun atmosphere wonderful wine suggestion that paired perfectly with dinner
Will be back very soon
The food was amazing here and the our waiter could not have been friendlier.
Some of the best Italian food I have ever had in NYC and FANTASTIC service. Can't wait to go back!!!
Gianni's had an amazing menu; though the server was quite lacking in hospitality skills. Otherwise, overall a good experience.
Amazing Amazing Amazing Food. We loved everything about this place! We will be back!
Italians working here! Very helpful and passionate. The Homemade rigatoni is exceptional....
Loved everything, the food was outstanding, the beer and wine were wonderful.
Great East Village spot for great ambiance , fun with friends , excellent pasta , decent prices: waiter owner was hilarious
Staff was attentive and food was great
My fish tasted like ammonia and the bathrooms were filthy.
The servers were fantastic and knowledgeable. I almost licked my plate clean! The tables were the typical NY intimate dining for 2 and the decor added to the mood.
Tried Giano for the first time on a Saturday night dinner date with my boyfriend. The service was quite vibrant and energetic and the food was delicious. We would definitely return to try more of what the menu has to offer.
The best restaurant ever
Food was delicious!
Very lovely authentic Italian cuisine. I enjoyed the food, atmosphere, serviced the friendly chat with the waiter and staff. Would definitely recommend for a casual evening out. Prices were very moderate and affordable.
The food is always consistently excellent. The gnocchi is the best I've ever had, and the balsamic glazed filet is unbelievably tender.
Wow, just wow. Food was above and beyond, service was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was perfect for a date. I was very pleased with the experience I had, and will definitely be back. Try the filet mignon! Best medium rare steak I've had in years!
One of the most incredible meals I've ever had! The ravioli special and filet mignon dish are amazing! We love this place.
Delicious food flattered by lovely staff.
Giano was amazing! It was my second time back but this time was a date with my girlfriend to celebrate an early Valentine's Day. The boat was great because we originally made a reservation for 7PM but we were feeling hungry so we asked if we could bump it to 6PM. The host was happy to do that for us! The food was great all the way from the appetizer to the famous tiramisu. Service was great as well as our waters were refilled promptly and we didn't have to wait long for food at all! Love this place, 10/10!
Giano is absolutely delicious, and the service is superb! One of my favorite spots in the city. I highly recommend!
Giano remains my favorite restaurant in the city. Outstanding northern Italian food with an equally stellar Italian wine list to complement the entrees. The warm service is top notch.
My boyfriend and I are loyal devotees to Giano, which we discovered last summer. It truly is a remarkable place to dine. Unpretentious, warm, inviting, and soothing are what comes to mind when I think of this restaurant. I chose to dine here on my birthday because of their kind service and delicious food, which are both always consistent.
The gnocchi is probably are favorite, in addition to the salmon, asparagus appetizer, and lava chocolate cake. The entire staff is professional, genuine, and contribute to the ambience of the unique space. To sum it up, you should pay a visit to them soon. Definitely worth your time.
Giano was a good local place to go in the neighborhood. We arrived at 6P, and it was empty. An hour later, the place was full, so it's clearly a popular local joint. Food was good - but heavy on the rich, creamy pasta type dishes. The only dish that was mediocre was the lasagne. Lamb shank was tender, needed a bit of seasoning, the 2 special pasta dishes were satisfying and good. Decor is nothing special. Music a bit too loud, but when we asked politely if they could turn it down, they were super nice about it. Our host/waiter was extremely theatrical!
Food was excellent. Service very attentive and friendly. We will return.
Service here was quick and attentive and the portions for the non-pasta dishes we got were larger than expected. I loved the arugula salad that was a side on my chicken dish, loved the burrata appetizer.
Delicious as always, will be back! My favorite Italian restaurant in the city. xo
Everything was great. We were there to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday and everything from making the reservation to the hostess to the servers to the bartender to the dinner to the price was perfect. We will definitely be back again.
Delicious food and great service. Love the wine too! Giano and his beautiful wife are so welcoming.
Our go-to neighborhood Italian Restaurant. We love the owners and the food.
The burata and arugula with prosciutto is truly lovely. And the gnocchi is divine too!
Phenomenal! We love it here!!! Service and food quality are unparalleled!
