Best-kept secret is a cliche, over-used and often-abused. But it's the most fitting introduction to a column about Gianni's Ristorante, the full name of this discovery . An Atlantic Boulevard blockhouse, which looks like a fortress from the road, Gianni's has been hidden for seven years, its fine dining, white-tablecloth ambiance, and inviting greenhouse porch all largely concealed from the bustling traffic..... read more on About Us
We read the reviews and thought to go see for ourselves since we were craving Italian food. The inside of the restaurant is pleasantly decorated. The service was impeccable and very pleasant. My husband and I had the escarole soup, different from what I was used to since it had beans but it was absolutely delicious! Their rolls were fresh out of the oven with just enough garlic. Even tho so far everything was so good we shared an appetizer of rollatini which was eggplant grilled and rolled around what appeared to be whipped ricotta cheese and topped with mozarella and marinara sauce. So delicate so well prepared I believe I will get that as my entree the next time. We also ordered linguini with red clams sauce. It too was very good but just a bit too salty for both me and my husband, which I mentioned to the waiter and he was most gracious hearing our thoughts. Topped off the dinner with homemade tiramasu and it was sooooo light and a very generous portion. My husband ordered the black and white cake which was also soooo light and also a generous portion. We were thinking about checking out of our hotel tomorrow and heading home but will be hanging around for another great Italian meal at Gianni's. Thank you for a very enjoyable and delicioius dinner and we highly recommend everyone to experience Italian food at its finest. Five Stars from us!
I love Giannis! I don't eat Italian that much but this is the place I go whenever I get the craving. I believe that consistency is the key and this place has always left me happy. The salad that comes with the lunch is the best salad I've ever had. No lie. The pasta sauce is delicious and the portions are healthy. The best part is this great find is not pretentious or over-priced. The only downside is that it may get a little loud. If you are looking for a romantic dinner go somewhere else but if you are looking for great food and service at a good price definitely try Giannis.
Just by pure luck my husband and I found Gianni's last December when we were back in southeast Florida rekindling our early romance. We met in Ft. Lauderdale in the mid-1970s. The food was great... N.Y. Italian. This is authentic cucina, with a good affordable wines and excellent service. The atmosphere was warm , e veryone seemed to know each othe r .
Pompano/Lighthouse Point is home to many fine Italian restaurants but you can't beat Gianni's...the food is consistenly wonderful and the service attentive. Yes..it's loud and crowded during the tourist season but Gianni will find a table for his local patrons. Had the veal marsala last week and even GHW Bush will love the broccoli parmesan...and Gianni sent over complimentary sambucca with our after dinner coffee. Enjoy it before the Canadian snowbirds get back...with their phat dollars...they'll be eating out a lot.
Recently I was sick, but able to drive to Gianni's (which thankfully is less than a mile from me) and I ordered their lunch lasagna entree to take out. Their phone service rep. was courteous, when I picked it up they knew exactly what it was and where it was. It came with salad, bread and enough lasagna for 2 meals. Excellent! All for nine bucks! Five Stars!
this place is the best! i have eaten at alot of itialan restaurants in my life, and for the amount, taste, pricing, and service, you really get what you paid for. i love this place and i would recomand it to anybody.
P S i have been eating at Gianni's for about three years, two times a week, i drive about fiffty miles both ways from boca raton.
