I come to Gianna’s mostly for business meeting lunches and occasionally with my family. Great food and great people. Tastes like home Italian cooking. The Parma all are good, the veal is tender and perfectly cooked, and I enjoy their grilled salmon. I will keep coming back.

Another stellar evening at Gianna's. Joanne has a friendly, welcoming smile at the door every time I'm there. A well prepared drink awaits at the bar. We sat down for dinner on time, appetizers were brought promptly. Delicious, lightly breaded fried calamari. Our party of four, all had different dishes, from fresh fish to chicken prepared in different ways. Delicious, each one! Huge desserts topped off our delightful dinner. As always, a perfect meal with great friends at Gianna's. Our go to place in NJ! Stay perfect Gianna's!

Gianna's was a very pleasant surprise! Working in the area over the past 3 months and hadn't tried this gem until last week. The chicken special was delicious and the staff was very open and friendly. It is a nice place that you can feel comfortable being casual in.

Exceptional evening out with friends, thanks to Gianna's. Always greeted at the door with a friendly smile and a nice word! It's the beginning to a usually wonderful dining experience. The steamed asparagus I ordered for an appetizer were not on the menu, but Gianna's accommodates! decided to go with a nice veal dish as my main course and wow was I not disappointed. Excellent sauce with an ample portion of veal. The service was exceptional. We closed the evening with a nightcap at the bar. A perfect ending to a great night out. Take a trip to Gianna's in Carlstadt, an exquisite dining experience at more than reasonable prices!

My sons and I went to Gianna’s on a Sunday evening. It was a great experience all the way around. Very tasty dishes served family style. Super service. Pleasant informal atmosphere. Fairly priced. The gnocchi bolognese was to die for. We will definitely be back next time we visit this part of New Jersey.

Absolutely wonderful dining experience! Service was terrific -- we even changed our order after putting it in (someone at a nearby table ordered something that looked AMAZING) and they were totally patient with us! The food was delicious and a terrific value! We are already planning another trip through the area, just to dine there again. Docked a slight point for "ambiance" but only because the air conditioning was very cold... they were kind enough to find us a table away from the vents. This place is wonderful!

The staff is fantastic. From the Manager, JoAnne Kreeger to the lovely servers and of course, the kitchen crew. The food is fresh, delicious and very satisfying. We go here as often as we can for dinner. We had a large party upstairs and everyone was delighted. The chicken parmigiana and roasted vegetables are two of our favorites. Enjoy!

Special dinner with my Son visiting from Boston. It's our go to place for any festivities!
Gianna's was busy at 6:30 pm. we were promptly seated and our order taken. we shared some appetizers and ordered the Chicken Parm family style meal. Excellent food! As usual, service was superb. Portion was large enough for three people plus the "doggie bag" for next day lunch. Simply excellent! Congrats Gianna's, you have me hooked!

As a repeat customer, we enjoy This Italian restaurant very much. The service is attentive and friendly. Attention to details are spot on. Our waitress could not have been more attentive, bringing extra bread, refilling our water glasses numerous times, etc. Food, excellent as usual. we ordered veal and chicken parm, wonderful. Sauce not overpowering and complemented the meat/poultry very well. a special place for us which we frequent as often as possible. Highly recommended.

Met friends for an evening of friendly conversation. As always, Management was waiting for us with an open door! We were seated immediately, drinks & bread arrived instantly. We shared two Family style dishes, a Veal Marsala and Chicken Contadina, one side dish of pasta and one of veggies. Gianna's always has a fresh spring salad to accompany your meal. It was superb as always. No wonder they are always busy! we shared a home made dessert. A wonderful two hours! Even had doggie bags to take home! Take a drive, you will enjoy the food and terrific service! Prices are very reasonable! WARM AND FRIENDLY STAFF IS FREE!

Came to Gianna's for a Fri evening get together with a Friend and as always, it did not disappoint. The fried calamari are the best in North Jersey! We all raved about our chicken and Lasagna dishes.
The sauces here are to die for! Sauces tend to be heavy and overwhelming at most restaurants, not at Gianna's! They prepare the sauce to be light, flavorful, complementing the dish as opposed to smothering it. We followed with a nice espresso and an after dinner drink to complete the evening. Delicious food, comfortable ambiance, reasonable prices, a splendid Friday evening. The staff were all charming! See you next week Gianna's!
