great Italian! Convenient to Steppenwolf. very attentive staff and nice wine selections . Heard the calamari is good, but was on low-fat restriction this visit!. looked good, though. specials were delish and would go again for sure!
I had the risotto and the wife had the duck, OMG!!! Absolutely fabulous. Fantastic food, fantastic service.
Everything was delicious and the service was superb
Outstanding service and delicious food .... will definitely be back again !
Food is excellent! Rigatoni was delicious and short ribs tender and flavorful. Even Cesar salad was just right. Wait staff cheerful and attentive.
Everything was perfect! The service was wonderful and the food amazing! Will definitely go back!
We have been dining here for over 18 years and am always satisfied with the menu selections and the food quality . Gianni does a great job welcoming you to his restaurant , yet doesn’t infringe on your meal.....always a gentleman and runs a first class place. Small , quaint , and wonderful!
Great food, very friendly staff. Very close to theaters and street parking avalible
Trattoria Gianni is a local gem in Lincoln Park. The food is always good and the staff friendly.
Lovely food and warm atmosphere. Our server, Matthew, was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and provided a humourous and efficient service. The food was fantastic; big recommendations include: calamari fritti, ricotta gnocchi and pork chop. The owner, Gianni, provides general, reassuring, oversight and a warm welcome and farewell.
Pleasant evening. Excellent service
Service and food was quite good, however the noise level was almost intolerable. You could not hear the person sitting next to you.
The service, good , & atmosphere was great. Felt rushed during our time there.
Everything was so-so, the tiramisu was bad, the soup bland and tasteless, don't think I will go back. Not worth the price.
Great food. Our server Marco gave us the perfect amount of attention and we appreciated the information he provided about the restaurant, menu items, and drinks.
We had a group of 16 for a family trip. This was a wonderful place to gather for authentic Italian food.
Perfect dining spot before or after the theater. Great Italian food and excellent service. we will be back........
The food and wine were nothing special but the prices are moderate and the service was fine.
$8.95 is very expensive for a mixed green salad with four very thin slices of apple/pear.
The carry out food was put in a very flimsy container and the sauce leaked out into the bag and it
was a mess. They need to upgrade the containers.
All around amazing!!!!
A great restaurant. In the summer the outside seating is amazing. It reminds me of the true Trattoria's in Southern Italy. Great food and service.
Food was delicious! Pollo Marsala and Fettuchino with Shrimp & Scallops. And the spinach was outstanding! Don't hesitate to have dinner here!
We stopped here before theatre, because of location. The next time we eat here, it’ll be because it’s a great neighborhood find. Great food. Delicious deserts. Service was friendly and efficient
We love this place! Wonderful selection of old world Italian favorites and always something new and yummy on the specials menu. Excellent selection of wine by the bottle or the glass. We are always greeted like old friends and treated like family being cooked for by nonna! I had the gnocchi della nonna to start followed by the deliciously tender saltimbocca and some nice barolo by the glass. My wife had the house special salad and a delicious zuppa di mare chock full of mussels, scallops and a big chunk of tender tilapia. Tasty panna cotta for dessert. Don't miss it.
Excellent New Year's Eve experience. Good food, good crowd, fun atmosphere.
We ate here after the theater. My wife had the Rigatoni Alla Nocerina and thinks it may have been the best pasta she has ever had. I had the Pollo Alla Diavolo. The chicken was juicy and roasted to perfection. The service was exceptional - attentive without being intrusive. I look forward to our next trip.
Trattoria Gianni is always excellent, and convenient if you're going to Steppenwolf. The Branzino was excellent, as were the grilled vegetables. It gets dinged a bit this time because the minestrone soup was not remarkable, and because I was kicking myself for not getting the pasta appetizer that I would have preferred. Nonetheless, the meal was very, very good and it is always a pleasure to get back there.
Great for pre theater. Always fresh homemade food,
Delicious food at a reasonable price in an quiet romantic setting with excellent service.
Food was great, service was very good, and it is right across the street from Steppenwolf Theatre. We went there as the recommendation of a friend and were very satisfied. Everything we ordered was delicious. We ordered some of the daily specials and they were great.
We’ve eaten at Gianni’s many times and it never disappoints - best Italian food in the neighborhood
