Gianni's Brio Ristorante
Great service great food reasonably priced always a favourite, why would you do a chain when this is on your door
We had a fantastic pre-theatre meal here, and ate from the great value Early Bird menu. Our food was fantastic quality and presentation. Service was excellent - attentive but unhurried. The modern decor and bustling ambience here is great. The location is good, in Harrogate town centre, opposite the Convention Centre.
My partner and I visited this restaurant on Tuesday evening as part of our visit to Harrogate. At the time we were amazed at the quality, the like of which we hadn’t experienced since visiting Lake Como last year.....yes it was that good! We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this restaurant to any of our friends and family should they be in the area. Bellissimo!
Normally my wife an I only have 2 courses, but on this occasion we both had 3, which shows how much we enjoyed the food
Very good standard of food and service. Friendly and helpful staff. A little noisy due to a party on next table with lots of very noisy children - lovely to see the children enjoying themselves but no control from parents. Will certainly return but avoid Sunday afternoons.
We had booked a table for six people but at the last minute two of our party couldn’t come due to illness. On arrival we were reprimanded for not informing them; we would have left then but one of our party was disabled so moving elsewhere would have been difficult. Service was with an air of indifference and they were annoyed as a friend took a while to choose. Table was partially cleared whilst some of us were still eating. The place was noisy, people shouting across the room, prices have increased greatly since our last visit whereas friendliness has disappeared. The food was as good as ever, the rest was a complete disappointment. It was only afterwards that we noticed that a service charge had been automatically added, something that should be made clear as we would not have paid it otherwise.
We had an excellent meal and considered it very good value. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely go again
Extremely helpful and polite staff. Delicious vitello tonnato. Superb saltimbocca alla romana with side-dishes included. Feels like Italy in England!!! Suggested tip included when paying by credit card fairly nigh though as we're not used to that...
Busy time busy restaurant
We went during the UCI world cycle championships. On Friday 27th...the restaurant was lively and loud but that was to be expected. Food was very good... Service quick and efficient... Even though they needed our table we weren't rushed. Would reccomend for couples but maybe not romantic evenings! And families and groups of friends....
Very enjoyable meal in a welcoming and warm atmosphere. Food, as always, was beautifully cooked and well presented. A regular favourite when we are in Harrogate and we will visit again next time.
Absolutely fantastic! The best steak I have ever eaten! Couldn’t fault a thing! One of our party has severe allergies and they catered for her wonderfully. Can’t wait to visit again! Every aspect was outstanding!
Once again our visit to giannis brio was excellent. Food & service is outstanding we alway look forward to visiting here
Service was slow, especially after our main meal. Our waiter was not talkative our attentive either.
Excellent as usual..
When I visit Harrogate on business, arriving late, it’s always great to grab a bite to eat that exudes excellence in all departments!
Absolutely outstanding in all aspects. The food is extremely tasty and the staff are very friendly!!
First class food ,cooked and served with care.
Good food and excellent service. As the restaurant filled up the noise level increased but it did t put us off. It wAs very busy even at 7.00 pm.
Magnificent food. Exemplary service, not all over you and not invisible either.
Americano Pizza was superb (maybe don’t go for it if you don’t like spicy food).
Lovely meal and excellent service but the noise level meant we left as soon as we had eaten which spoiled our evening. So no dessert!
Just a little lunch with Grandma , Mum Dad and son .
Lovely food great service and very relaxing time on a Friday afternoon .
Fritto Misto top notch my favourite .
Fantastic fresh food - never fails, one of the best in HARROGATE
Enjoyable meal with friends. Service unobtrusive, but attentive. Will return!
Food was lovely and the service was good as well.
Wonderful evening . Everything about this restaurant is fantastic. Can’t fault it.
The quality of food and wine never fails to impress, so much better than anything the chains offer and £ for £ such better value. It’s a great menu too- something for everyone with some lovely sea food options too. Staff are always really attentive and know their wine!
Lovely food great ambiance & service! Will be back!
Booked to go with friends as we’ve been before. Food tasty, the pizzas massive. We struggled to finish it. We were a bit disappointed with the limited choice for vegetarians but they were able to add different toppings on the pizzas. Desserts were delicious I had the profiteroles with chocolate sauce which tasted just like melted dark chocolate; yum. The red wine was recommended by the waiter and went down very well. I would recommend booking as we did. It was busy even at 6pm. The service was just right; enough time to eat but not waiting too long. I would recommend this restaurant.
Service was very prompt and food was excellent. A very enjoyable evening. Only blip was I ordered Pinot Noir, a large glass but found it only came in 125 ml - why? I therefore had 2 glasses - cost £19! Ridiculous!
It was very pleasant, food was very good although maybe a few more vegatarian options would of been good for us:-)
We will definately go back next time we are in Harrogate.
Gianni's restaurant is always our "go to" place in Harrogate. We are spoilt for choice in Harrogate as there are four other excellent restaurants to choose from (and another hundred mediocre ones). Its our 40th wedding anniversary next month and guess where we are going!
Lovely evening at Gianni's Brio. Prices are fair rather than cheap. Starters were very good, mains average or a little below but desserts were amazing. My wife would consider herself a panna cotta expert and has eaten this dessert around Italy - this however, was rated as the best ever!
We weren't thrilled with one of our mains, so this was removed from the bill without hesitation, and without us asking - to say nothing of the complimentary Limoncello and Strega which followed.
Food varied between just ok and amazing. Ambience, service and overall evening....excellent. Thank you
This is my favourite restaurant in Harrogate.. The food is very tasty
the service and ambience is great.Can't wait to return
On arrival, our host recalled in exact detail the email I'd sent weeks before, outlining our dietary requirements - vegetarian, gluten-free etc. - and showed us to our table. Those serving us were friendly and helpful. Food was top-notch. The place was busy for a Sunday night (though it was half-term with a number of family groups). We rated it sufficiently highly to book the following night. Everything was exactly the same: great food, excellent service, friendly staff.... and even on a Monday evening, the place was filling up nicely. We'd strongly recommend Gianni's.
The whole experience could not be faulted. We increased the numbers of people going which they did with no problem. We had made a cake for the birthday person, but they don't like a fuss. We were able to collect and bring it to the table when needed with no problems. The food was delicious. I was a bit worried at first as there didn't look to be much vegetarian selection. They were able to adapt a meat dish for me without the meat and it tasted lovely. We had an Italian friend with us, who said the food was authentic and delicious. Overall a lovely meal out. Would definitely recommend it and would return.
Fabulous food always a great welcome and service . try the sharing platters and the veal 👍🥰
Food was excellent, as was service. We regularly eat there and the food is always consistently of a very high standard
A lovely work lunch for a party of 8. Almost all ordered something different and all meals were interesting and delicious. Service was great - attentive without being in any way intrusive. Fantastic choice and right over the road from the conference centre
The food was very tasty however I had the Duck ravioli which unfortunately had a 2 inch piece of bone and some soft cartilage. They need to pay better attention to the food preparation. The waiter was informed but did not appear very interested
We had a brilliant meal at this restaurant, and what made it nice too you had a break in between causes. There is a very good choice here the menu at reasonable prices. We will definitely be returning.
Enjoyed a great meal here earlier this week. Found it on the internet when searching for hotel. As the restaurant was very close to the hotel and reviews were good we decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed. We highly recommend Gianni's and would not hesitate to visit again on a return visit to Harrogate.
