The three of us shared a variety of dishes so that we could experience more of what Jianna had to offer.
We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and everything was very tasty and nicely presented. We marveled at all the different flavors in the dishes and, needless to say, we ate every bit of every dish. We checked out the regular menu and decided we would definitely come back to this restaurant. The service was great and the ambiance was lovely. We had each gone to 4 restaurants this week and Jianna was the very best of them all.

My husband and I were celebrating
our Anniversary so we decided to try Jianna on many recommendations. Our server Tina was awesome and my husband thought the Chicken piccata was one of the best he had in a long time. We will be back.

An outstanding new restaurant we found in Greenville. The food was creative and delicious; the service was impeccable. On par with some of Boston's best restaurants. We went for my husband's birthday and were presently surprised by the balcony seating we got. A must-do if you are visiting Greenville. Ask for outside seating. It's worth it.

The waiter was your best ambassador. Dylan Spencer knew the menu and every detail about every dish you were serving. Not to mention, he was an engaging and thoughtful server. Your best asset he made our dinning experience for the evening. The food was fantastic best pasta I have ever eaten anywhere. All in all if your wait staff are all like this young man then you will always be a hit. The employee who engages with the customer is the face of the company and either they make you or break you. He is your biggest asset. Please give an him an at-a-boy or a special bonus in his pay or teach him how to manage. Can’t wait to visit again.

Enjoyed our Restaurant Week meal. The food was outstanding. Bolognese and Chicken Marsala were great entrees but the appetizers stood out, especially the agnolotti.

I didn’t give a 5 star review because our server was a little absent, and the meal was not timed well. Additionally, the nearby bar was full and very noisy during our meal, which made it a bit less intimate and romantic than we were hoping.

Despite the downfalls it was still a great meal and we left feeling fat and very happy.

I went for restaurant week and I had a delightful meal out on the patio. The food was great (scallops-yum!), and so was the view of the rising full moon.
I'm going again in a couple days, too, for the last night of restaurant week. 😉

It was our first time .i took my Daughters for a get together. It’s really a nice restaurant. It was the restaurant week. Three course meal was great. The only thing to much salt. I wish they have used less. Less is always better..
I would recommend this place definitely and would go again. But this time I would tell them less salt please:-)

We had a light dinner at Jianna's and it was very good. The gnochi were light and it was a small portion, which is just what I wanted. We had an affogato and the peach tart for dessert and they were outstanding. We sat outside on the balcony and ejoyed the birds view of the neighborhood and park. Very good restaurant I highly recommend it to visitors and locals. Absolutely compares to our better italian restaurants in Charleston.

We had a great dinner! Our server was excellent. The food was great. It was my birthday and they gifted me a special birthday menu signed by the staff and a cooking spoon. It was a little warm in the restaurant because the bar was open to the outside but it was still a wonderful time.

There are Italian restaurants, and then there is Jianna. Jianna is in a class all its own, the food was out of this world! I had the chard grilled octopus and it was cooked to perfection and that you can’t find just anywhere, perfectly prepared octopus! So knowing that was divine, it was no surprise that everything else was just as delectable.
Service, atmosphere, drinks all top notch and you can find this in OUR GREENVILLE SC! Ya that Greenville!

Went for Restaurant week and had a very nice time. We sat outside at a 2 top looking over Falls Park and the people watching was great. Our server Zack was neat, courteous and informative and made us feel like we were important. Good food, good atmosphere, good people, good job!

Collin was our main server and he went above and beyond to give us a quality experience. All the service was good, but he was our star! My salmon was 'cooked to perfection' which for me means done but not dry. My friends also loved their dishes. Tiramisu Cheesecake is a wonderful treat. Wine by the glass is a bit pricey which is why value only got 4 stars from me.

Food was delicious. I had the rigatoni bolognese my husband enjoyed the Carbonara both were delicious. We missed the creamier and pea version but this is very flavorful also. Stags our waiter was efficient and helpful. Wine tasting was so good, I ordered an extra glass. This was our first visit worked it in with restaurant week, we will definitely be back to enjoy atmosphere and food again.

Food was Luke warm, white wine wasn't quite chilled. Menu offerings were very limited. We each struggled to find something to order (party of 4). So we each just ordered a main course, no appetizers or desserts. No one even ate their entire meal. It came so fast, we would have preferred to relax and visit before eating. Had to request bread - at an Italian restaurant?? Atmosphere / decor was fabulous. Too bad food was mediocre. Expected more from this restaurant group.

I absolutely loved my meal! My daughter have been telling me about the scallops. I decided that I need to try this succulent dish. They were properly seasoned and cooked just right!👍👍 To top things off I had a "wow"dessert, "passion fruit pancetta! This excited my palate! It was sweet but smooth and was complemented by a bit of a bite from the passion fruit sauce. I enjoyed my meal immensely. plus the atmosphere and our very friendly and attentive server! I will be back and will tell our friends & family to stop in and enjoy!
