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. In the event of inclement weather, we will not be able move anyone inside. Current laws may dictate that we provide current guests with containers or bags to package their own food to go. Unfortunately, if you have a reservation and it is raining, we will not be able to seat you at that time.

We hadn't dined in a while at Trattoria Gianni - was so happy to rediscover this lovely restaurant with wonderful outdoor seating in our neighborhood.
Happy to enjoy the weather. Loved the gnocchi - so fresh! Nice Italian wine list, too.

Trattoria Gianni has delicious food, excellent wine, and the perfect ambiance for an evening out. A cut above most local Italian restaurants, Gianni’s is elegant and approachable. I come for the arancini, rigatoni, tiramisu, and always a glass of montepulciano.

Trattoria Gianni always delivers. Their outdoor space is beautiful and large. Their food is great! Their wine selection is always broad enough to support everyone’s preferences. It’s just a great place to eat.

I have written a review of Trattoria Gianni before, but it bears repeating. This is one of my favorite dining destinations. During COVID-19 the large patio is a good place to go - it is safe and very pleasant. The food and service are excellent all the time. And, Gianni is a wonderful host.

The food at Trattoria Gianni is exceptional. We had the bruschetta, Insalata Variopinta, and a Caprese pasta dish on the daily specials menu made with Tagliatelle pasta. Finished off our meal by sharing a cannoli. Our server was very attentive, and paced our meal well. The outdoor patio is spacious. It is adjacent to one side of the building, so it provides more privacy from street and foot traffic than other restaurants that provide outdoor seating on the sidewalk.
This was our first visit, and we will definitely return, but will not be ordering iced tea again. We have never been charged by the glass for iced tea - typically there are free refills, so we didn't even think about asking. Each glass of iced tea was $3.50. The glasses weren't huge, and we each ordered 3 over the course of our meal, for a total of $21.00 for iced tea - in our opinion, ridiculous.

We've been dining at Trattoria Gianni for years and it's never disappointed. The food is fresh and well-prepared and the service friendly and efficient. The outdoor patio is great during the summer. During the coronavirus outbreak we've also ordered takeout from here and it's always been very good. We're so glad they're still in business!

We felt that the food portions were very small for the price. And were used to Chicago dining dining out often.

The calamari was $17 and we probably got 10 pieces. Typically you would get about 20 at Rosebud or Carmines.

My husband ordered the duck and it was like six or seven pieces of meat small bites.

I ordered the half chicken and it looked like a small thigh.

We were definitely not impressed with the food. The ambiance is great on the patio. Lots of social distancing. Masks on all servers etc.

We love this neighborhood Trattoria! They've got a great outdoor patio and umbrellas if it starts to rain. The food is outstanding and fresh. The service is excellent. Marco will make sure you're taken care of. Always a beautiful, relaxing night out with incredible food and service and an excellent wine list as well!

This place was amazing! The staff was super friendly and accommodating. Service was quick and efficient and the food was DELICIOUS. It started to rain a bit and the staff quickly ensured that every table on the patio was covered by an umbrella, making the dining experience possible throughout a light rain. We ordered the crab stuffed ravioli and the capellini. 10/10 would recommend!

Truly a pleasant, relaxed dinner for two of us. The room was comfortable with a warm ambiance on a cool windy evening. The room was mostly full yet the decibel level was moderate such that we could converse normally without straining to hear one another; a seeming rarity these days in public dining. Milan, our efficient and professional server attentively paced things expertly never making us feel rushed or ignored. Our four course meal was excellent, portions were sensible and we left quite satisfied without feeling still hungry or too full. It was perfect.

My review speaks for itself. Service was very good. We enjoyed our meals, but felt that it was somewhat overpriced. How nice it would be if soup or salad was included.
