Outstanding food and very friendly staff. Giano is our new go to restaurant!
Amazing food and suggestions by the owner! She was nice enough to notice that I got the wrong dish (although I was happily savoring it :P) and was super cheerful and polite. Definitely recommend for a nice, quiet meal!
Loved hearing my husband and owner speaking Italian to each other. Food was excellent.
Giano was amazing and exceeded expectations. I last minute had to add two people to my reservation and they were very accommodating. We came early and they kept up busy with drinks at the bar. The owners are so sweet and personally explained the menu, took our orders, and made sure we were having a great time. The food was impeccable. One of the best Italian meals I have had in the city and for a reasonable price. Out of the five of us we each got a different pasta dish and every person was delighted with their meal. I personally had the ravioli special which was excellent. I loved my dinner here and would definitely come again.
Incredible food...superb service....authentic which is truly rare:)
Special risotto and pomodoro pasta were excellent, as was the eggplant parmesan. Service was friendly. Wish they would figure out a way to make it a bit less loud and add a bit of light to the restaurant— dim lighting is taken to an extreme here.
It was out first time there. It was raining hard. They seated us near the front window which was open and didn’t want to close it even tho we were getting wet! They moved us one table over as a concession. Then we saw the next couple getting wet! The bread tasted like supermarket bread that wasn’t fresh, the calamari and octopus salad was tasteless. Very nice waitress but we’re never going back and wouldnt recommend it even though we live close by.
Everything was amazing. Will definitely go back
I had a great time, it had been a while since I have been back in the city to visit my niece, great attentive service with nice wine selection. The service is not pushy and is friendly. Definitely would go back
Sat in back garden....great service great food. Nice casual atmosphere. Will go back again.
Great food but it was so dark I could barely see what I was eating.
Fantastic dinner as always. Giano never disappoints. Favorite restaurant in Manhattan.
Friendly, great food and service. Would definitely return
Wonderful homemade pasta, superb tiramisu, great service and attentive waitstaff. Overall a lovely experience.
I love this place. It is a dining experience not just a place to go have dinner. It is obvious that love, caring and creativity go into every aspect of this place.
BEST ITALIAN FOOD EVER
Great food. Waiter was really nice. He was working the bar too and was always on the move. Our service never suffered though. Wines were reasonably priced and tasted good. The food was tasty.
Instantly felt at home once we walked into the restaurant. Lovely table in the back garden. This was my third time at Giano and I cannot wait to return soon.
This is one of my favorite spots in the whole city. Homemade Italian food for a great price. Most entrees are under $20, the rigatoni was spectacular and if you can catch the bacon wrapped asparagus appetizer special you'd be a fool to not order it.
Love this place! It’s a must go to for good Italian in nyc!
Fantastic homemade pasta. Will definitely go again.
Beautiful evening! Food was delicious and the owner was super attentive and friendly!
Food was great but service was a little slow. Made a reservation and was seated almost immediately however they didn’t have enough menus so we waited for awhile and they brought us some menus to share. It took a while to get a waiter to take our order as it seemed they only had 2 waiters. Food was very delicious. Only issue was having to search for the waiter for ordering and billing.
Best place in city
We had an excellent dinner at Giano. We sat out in the back patio area which was great. Food was excellent, our waiter was funny and attentive. It was an overall great experience.
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!
