Si parla Italiano! Regional Italian cuisine featuring a combination of local and Italian ingredients. For reservations, we ask that you arrive promptly and with your complete party so that you may be seated without delay, helping to ensure we keep social distancing per city and state system mandate. To further ensure safety, we will now limit guest to table time: for party of 1-2 to 1 hour and 30 mins and parties of 3-4 are 1 hour and 45 mins and parties of 5-6 is 2 hours. Per the new rules we are only able to accommodate to parties of 6 or fewer and all tables will be outside to social distancing of 6 ft table separation. Current laws may dictate that we provide current guests with containers or bags to package their own food to go.

    A lot of my appetizers were cold and the server barely spoke to us. This is the second time in two months this has happened.

    We’ve eaten at Trattoria Gianni many times before and always enjoyed our experience. After returning for the first time in about 4 years, it just wasn’t very impressive. I ordered lobster ravioli and was given…cheese ravioli. There wasn’t a hint of lobster flavor whatsoever. The other dishes we ordered were fine, but nothing special. Our waitress was nice, but seemed like she didn’t want to be there. Overall it wasn’t a poor experience, but unfortunately quite average. I’m sure we’ll be back someday, but I hope they step up their game.

    Had a pre Steppenwolf dinner at Trattoria Gianni. Service was very friendly and prompt, the food good but somewhat irregular (excellent special bracciole, so so gnocci). Prices are okay for food quality.

    The server was incredibly rude, she would just toss stuff on our table and would cut us off mid sentence. We have to wait 20 min to get water, then another 15 to place an order. She had a table come after us and was far more attentive to them then us.

    Watch out for hidden 3% "cc charge". It is not shown on the menu & owner is not exactly gracious about removing the charge. No mention of a cash discount.

    We had a 730 reservation and were seated right away. Very attentive service by waiters, a good Italian menu that offered some thing for each of the four of us that was appealing. By 9 o’clock or so it was pretty loud but we enjoyed our time very well. Will certainly go back again. Reasonably priced for good food.

    The service was very poor last night. It was difficult to get ahold of our server and he seemed uninterested in making our experience great. We rushed to order just to make sure we got it in before losing him again. Definitely missing a level of attentiveness.

    Service was decent it was busy and could see only like two waiters working . As for the food nothing special we had the spinach Ravioli with the sage brown butter sauce , it was clearly frozen premade pasta , the tagliatelle was bland but cooked perfectly.

    Overall I was not impressed with my experience. The service was poor and it seemed as though the wait staff was fighting with one and other throughout the night. The appetizers we received were less than exciting. They were extremely small portions and average quality. Our entrees were okay, but you can find better Italian in the city. I'm usually not one to write poor reviews but was very disappointed in my experience. We had a few people visiting from out of town and were bummed this was the experience they had when there are so many restaurants out there.

    Outstanding in every respect and expect to pay fair value for all that goodness. The ambience of the outside patio is unrivaled in the city. The service and charm of the waiter was exceptional. The food was expertly prepared with fresh, quality ingredients. The homemade Tagliatelle was delightfully light and perfectly cooked. A thoroughly enjoyable experience!

    Have eaten there for years. Had a terrible experience last night. Will never go back. 2 of our entrees were wrong. Sent back one. Food was ok. My risotto was very oily. After the meal our check included a credit card fee that we were never notified or asked about. When we offered to pay cash they rearang our checks but didn’t remove the fee. The owner came over and started yelling at us. I have never been treated so rudely by a proprietor Will never go back
