Jianna’s is my favorite restaurant in downtown Greenville. An evening of cocktails, oysters and char-grilled octopus salad at the balcony bar…perfection!

The service and ambiance was good. There was no waiting time. The wait time for food a little long, but not bad. The food was delicious and the experience was worth it.

Watery sauces, the Negroni cocktail is not a real negroni and the waiter was rude.

The food was absolutely incredible. Could not have asked for a better meal. Service was also top notch. My only drawbacks were it was a little nosier than anticipated (even while dining indoors) and incredibly warm, so be sure to dress appropriately! Will definitely be back again soon!

We went for our anniversary. We had meatballs, spring pasta with peas and octopus apps them the two fish dishes for entrees and roasted carrots side dish. The food was fantastic. Our server was very nice but obviously new. Every restaurant is struggling with new servers now. We will definitely come back soon!

I just recently started a new position and had to take my higher ups out to dinner. My first pick was Jianna and I do not regret it. My executive chef was still RAVING on dinner this morning when I walked in! Thanks to all!

First time here. Wouldn’t normally order spaghetti but wanted something simple since I was trying a few of the apps. Worst pasta I’ve ever had in a restaurant. It was so dry as were the meatballs we ordered on the side. Our server seemed bored and didn’t even tell us there were any specials. We didn’t realize it until she started telling another table. On the bright side, I would come back for the appetizers. The honey ricotta was so creamy and the grilling of the bread adds great texture and flavor. We also had the arugula salad and the Burrata with balsamic strawberries. The flavor combinations worked well together. It was a nice way to start the meal. Lastly, kudos to the young man who came by to grate cheese on to my pasta. He was so pleasant. He even said good bye on our way out. Overall, disappointing but I wouldn’t write it off completely.

Black pasta with shrimp and mushrooms was excellent and a little bit spicy as advertised. The leftovers were great for lunch today. The swordfish was also tasty. We shared the arugula salad. It was plenty for two. Another great experience at Jianna..
