Food and service were excellent. It was tad too dark at our table
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.
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.
good food. nice cozy place. friendly staff.
a bit on the expensive side though.
Felt like a total scam with a prix fixe Valentine's Day Menu. I checked online and several other places and found no hint at any type of special menu. I paid over $100 more than I expected. I will NEVER be going back here.
The food was excellent. The service was prompt up until it came time to pay our check. Perhaps she was trying to give us space to talk, maybe it was the busy holiday. But we definitely waited quite a while before anyone would bring us a bill.
We came here for Valentine's Day, and we both enjoyed ourselves very much. From the moment we entered we were greeted very nicely. After being seated the waitress and waiters were very nice, extremely helpful and understanding.
The ambience was perfect for the day.
The food was exceptionally delicious and perfect portion sizes.
Everything was great. Food, wine, atmosphere. But the service was the highlight of our night. Our server was incredible. Knowledgeable, suggestive, patient. Would highly recommend.
birthday dinner with the girlfriend
Absolutely amazing service, great tasting food, atmosphere is just exquisite! Can’t say enough good things about this place! Oh! and its not too pricey! Definitely will be back
The food was amazing as always!
I have been coming for years and never disappointed and never will be. Always solid and the host or maybe he is the owner he is amazing. How can you go wrong forget the big name restaurants this place is the best Italian in NYC period! Come and see yourself.
This is my favorite restaurant in NYC! I had friends from out of town who I wanted to take somewhere great. Giano is always on the top of my list.
Authentic cuisine, amazing service, great wine and desserts. Overall wow! Great value as well.
Love the authenticity
Food was amazing, attention to detail
I frequent this place with family and friends. The food, service and atmosphere is unmatched anywhere else in the city. Paolo and Roberta do a magnificent job with this place. I highly recommend!
Yummy Italian food, great specials. A nice place to take family or friends, to spend time chatting. You definitely don't feel rushed to get out!
The burrata appetizer was AMAZING! Who doesn't love a good hunk of creamy cheese?
I ordered the risotto that was on the specials list and although it was a good consistency, it was a little bland. My SO ordered the Bigoli al ragu d’agnello e noci tostate. His was absolutely delicious. I also noticed much of the restaurant ordering this meal. Both were good sized portions.
We thought everything was reasonably priced, if not on the cheaper side, for a restaurant in NYC.
I would bring someone from out of town to this place.
Some of the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy. Incredible specials and delicious home-cooked pasta.
You will not be disappointed!! Owner operated, waited on all tables. Food, atmosphere and service were all top notch. Would definitely return.
The food was sub par . We were a party of 3 and everyone felt their entrees were either too salty ( Cod ) or flavorless ( chicken Milanese) and sour tasting (peas/fava beans).
We would not return
Was there with a group of 5 had excellent dinner great atmosphere and I highly recommend
Took family for birthday weekend prior to seeing a show. Awesome, animated server. Hot, delicious food. Fair price.
The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Italian food at its homemade best!
We had such a good time, thanks to the attentive service and great food. The Pomodoro and Tiramisu never disappoints.
A true gem. Great people and wonderful food. Simply the best around.
I will go back. Was a bit dissapointed because my expectations were very high due to it coming highly recommended by a friend. I will update this review once I have gone back.
Always the best... I love this place. I keep coming back
