This is my favorite Italian in the city. The pasta and service are amazing!
One of the best Italian restaurants for years now. It keeps up with the good and solid work. Pasta with truffles is particularly amazing but everything is really great. Paolo is a fantastic entertainer and makes everything even better. Wine list can improve.
It was very pleasant setting and sitting on the back terrace was amazing. Our waiter was also very entertaining.
The ambiance, the service, the food was very good. We sat in the garden outside and it felt like we were in Italy. Our server was from Milano and he was quite comical. The tomato confit and the pesto sauce complimented the pasta which was cooked to perfection. My family and I had a wonderful evening at Giano.
Lovely people and fantastic food! Definitely start with a spritz and end with the cheesecake.
Great food and service
The owners and the food were top notch. I have told everyone about Giano’s. The best pasta I have ever had. I want to dream in that flavor
Our server was very charismatic and helpful! My friend says her dish was the best she's ever had.
We had an amazing time at Giano's. Our server was a CHARACTER, and that alone was worth the visit. His recommendations and descriptions were on point and hilarious. And oh my goodness the food. SO fresh and delicious. Shout out to Giano's for a proper bolognese with tagliatelle (not spaghetti)! Their tiramisu was spot on, as was the wine recommendation. We will absolutely be back!
Excellent experience. Every single course was full of fresh flavour. Tiramisu was the cherry on top of a wonderful evening.
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!
