    We are regulars at Gianna's for over 20 years. The good and service cannot be beat! Great little family-owned restaurant in Carlstadt, NJ, near racetrack. Great veal parmigiana cheese with linguini. The cream puff with vanilla ice-cream and fudge sauce was huge and to die for! Go there.

    This was a pre-concert dinner. Chose Gianna’s because of their location. Concert was great but the dinner was FANTASTIC. Excellent attentive servers brought us well prepared, fresh and delicious appetizer of Fried Zucchini and entrees, Sole Francese and Chicken Picatta. We were too full for dessert. If ever I am back in the area, concert or not, I will definitely be eating again at Gianna’s.

    This is a reguar place for us. We also always get the same dish. Salad Chicken Parm Penne ala Vodka Ghost Pines Pinot Noir If there are two of you, the family style order will have you bringing home some of the chicken which is fine by me. Love the food. Great food, nice people. You won't be disappointed.

    The food at Gianna’s is always great. This time was no exception. I had a special which I order whenever they offer it. I had the stuffed pork chop. It is filled with mozzarella and prosciutto covered a terrific brown sauce. For desert we shared a piece of banana split ice cream cake. Even if the food was not as good as it is, it would be worth going to Gianna’s just for the deserts. I should also mention that the owner and staff are very friendly and accommodating. I have never been disappointed dining at Gianna’s.

    I took a friend there for her first time and it was her birthday. The Veal Parmesan and Veal Saltimbocca with pasta and spinach were excellent. She loved the place and will return. Her big cream puff with ice-cream, chocolate sauce and whipped cream was delicious. The home-made marinara sauce is to die for. My family and I have been going to Gianna's for over 30 years now and keep returning. The booths are so quaint and it's a great place. Go there for any occasion. There's a party room upstairs, too.

    We were a party of six people. The food was excellent, the drinks were always replenished, and the service was outstanding. All of the people there made us feel welcome in every way and despite the late hour, we were not rushed out of the restaurant, nor were we made to feel that we were holding them up! This is not my first time dining here so I know that this is typical behavior for this establishment! I give Gianna’s the highest recommendation possible!!

    We have eaten at Gianna's for over 20 years now in the Meadowlands and it is still a great restaurant to eat. The dishes are large, very delicious and you can take some home. Very good entrees, especially the eggplant parm, the linguini with mussels, and roasted potatoes. Nice booths and tables, as well. Great for parties. Will return soon. Easy to find.

We all really enjoyed our meals and the owners and wait staff are such nice people. We will always recommend it and look forward to visiting again soon.
