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.
Great food in a lovely environment.
Mom’s birthday. Party of 6. Very clean and safe. Masks were worn. The owner was very friendly as it was mom’s 93rd birthday. Food was fantastic . Definitely a repeat !!
Service excellent and food very satisfying. I would recommend them to anyone.
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.
Beautiful Outdoor Dining. The food was delicious, and it is in a great area.
Loved it and will return
Food was good but pricey, service was decent
Very lovely outdoor space. Food very tasty. Asked for a special meal to be made up and was no problem.
I love Linguine with Clams, not on menu, but I saw they had clams in other dishes. It dis nit disappoint.
Fabulous as always. The patio is heaven. I don’t know what we will do when it gets too cold to dine outside. (Dine inside, I suppose)
Fantastic place. True Italian restaurant. Everything is A+++
Love the intimate outdoor garden, felt like I was in Italy!
Great food, great wine, great service!
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.
Had a great dinner here with friends! The patio was beautiful, dinner was delicious (shared three pastas, the pork chops, and chicken with spinach), and the service was excellent. Couldn't recommend more!
Great Italian meal! The owner is very nice and welcoming, highly recommend!
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.
Best good, great service. We are repeat customers!!!Totally support Gianni!!
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.
Delicious meal! Steak and pastas were enjoyed by all. The spacious patio is perfect for family and friend groups.
Food and Service was great. Ambiance was awesome. Would highly recommend!
we have been dining at Trattoria Gianni for over twenty years and have never been disappointed.
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!
Trattoria Gianni is always excellent, and now....with the pandemic and the patio...it was an excellent dinner out. Brava Trattoria Gianni!
Gianni was fantastic- a pure host and lover of food - I recommend this place to everyone
Risotto was fantastic. Been here many times and always treated well. Highly recommend.
Beautiful outdoor seating area. Great service. Reasonable prices. Free parking on street outside restaurant.
Great patio, spacious and cute. Delicious food and wine!
Best apps and great spritz
Amazing highly recommend!! Food is so delicious and the patio is beautiful at night.
Very nice patio. Waitress was able to suggest some nice dishes. Pasta is one of their specialties
As always, Gianni's was excellent. I'm so glad he has reopned and is still in business. Our Gianni greeted us as he always does and was genuinely happy to see us. I recommend this resturant to everyone.
Great! Love this spot.
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!
Always count on good food.
Nice place with a family-owned feeling when you are there. The service and care is absolutely outstanding. The food is wonderful. You will not be disappointed.
Great service, delicious food and very fair prices. A true winner!
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.
