Pre Show Dinner - Katlyn took great care of us. As soon as we sat down she asked if we were headed to a show and made sure we were taken care of. Never felt rushed and yet got out with time to spare. Food was excellent - everyone had something different and no one was disappointed. The grilled octopus is a winner!

Food was excellent. Prices were reasonable. They did not have a Chianti on the wine list which was surprising. The red wine we had was very good. Ordered a salad but did not come and we told server to cancel. Everything else was very good!

First time to Jianna and it will not be the last. Awesome atmosphere, incredible food and the service was over the top. Ask for Steven... He was very busy with many tables but was so attentive and knowledgeable. He took extremely great care of us. Highly recommend this restaurant. Somewhat limited menu but yet so many options as well specials.

Always an amazing time at Jianna. Even on a busy Valentine's weekend, everything was perfect. The pasta (made fresh on site) is the best I have had. And the cannoli's with the lemon filling were to die for!

Thanks - we will be back!

We went on Sat. The only reservation time available that day was 2:30. We were seated promptly. I did not know how very limited the lunch menu would be. Nothing comes with the entree, not even bread, either. No green salad was on the menu, but finally got our server to agree that the kitchen could prepare a side green salad for us. It came with balsamic dressing already on it. The dressing was good, but far too much of it...not a good thing for balsamic. Our chicken Marsala was excellent. It was a decent portion, no extra, but, again should have included a nice crusty bread.

Superb restaurant!! Jianna’s offers great food, spirits, wine, service and ambience with a friendly family atmosphere! We suggest you try the grilled salmon, chicken Marsala and the Sicilian steak sandwich which are fabulous! Oysters & in-house made pasta are their specialties!! This restaurant a local neighborhood gem! Highly recommended! Jianna’s is also part of the Table 301 Restaurant Group (Soby’s, LazyGoat, etc!!)! That alone says it all! You will not be disappointed...

A great restaurant with great food and service! I've had 3 oyster appetizers and 3 different pasta dishes in my visits and they have all been outstanding. The wine list is huge and my only complaint is that I find it to be overpriced. The service is also outstanding.

My snapper was great, her lagostino and pasta had great taste, but wasv98% pasta and maybe 2% lagostino and the few were tiny. It was very noisy and cold, enough so I kept my winter jacket on. No plans to return

Jianna's food ALWAYS hits the spot on a date night. We were sat with a view overlooking Falls Park, which was great. The not-so-great part is how loud the wait staff was when they were accessing and refilling table settings/silverware. Other than this, our waiter and all of the offerings were fantastic. We always leave Jianna ready to plan our next trip.

It was great experience, we had the oysters and pasta, with a Prosecco, the North Carolina burrata was excellent, and we had the penne with chicken ragu that was even better.

The food was very good and our server was very courteous and helpful regarding the menu. This was our first visit. The reason for the low overall rating is regarding the seating. The setup of a long cushioned bench against a wall and the placing of small tables about 12” apart with a chair on the other side is very unacceptable! I could barely squeeze between the table to be seated on the bench. Our conversation was restricted as you are over hearing the conversations on either side of you. And we weren’t the only ones upset by this situation as we overheard the couple beside saying this arrangement was very unacceptable! There are other tables in the restaurant so just be aware of this situation which would be fine for a group but not for a couple!!
