I've been a lot of times at Gianottis, also during its old fashioned times. The renovation improved a lot its appearance. It is just a bit sad that it is now much smaller than before and the beautiful terrace with amazing view towards Roseg has been removed. Anyway, the new Gianotti has now a beautiful, rustic and cozy atmosphere. The... More

We could not get into the restaurant the first night, but we bookied a reservation for the next. We chose our table in the " Family area" for the direct view of the grill and prep area. Fantastic view of a busy, efficient and excellent cooking. Local foods in traditional styles offered the best Swiss experience. My Venison was superb!

We were lucky to walk into this new wine bar / restaurant in the middle of a very rainy Saturday afternoon. They offer a very good choice of selected wines. We decided to try a Swiss white Chardonnay wine from the "Bündner Herrschaft", a region close to Chur in the Grison. As we had a dinner planned with friends we... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with very good service. The menu is sufficient but not extensive, but the quality of the food and wine is excellent. The staff speak several languages (English, Italian, German) and are attentive but not over fussy. We came here one night for an apero, and then back the next night for dinner. The place... More

Eat a good steak from the grill with broiled vegetables. As a starter take a carne cruda. Order a bottle of wine and enjoy a wonderful moment with good friends. It's lovely. Staff very nice, prices reasonable.

Whether you're into a glass - or even better: a bottle - of excellent wine, great food, good coffee and cake or homemade delicious chocolates, it's always Gianottis. It's a modern, cosy place with very friendly and attentive staff. The meat dishes - try the lamb - are fantastic and the venison they sometimes have as specials in season is... More

This was our first Swiss restaurant meal following our arrival from Italy, and we were not dissappointed. My sons and I all choose the BBQ pork served with flavoured salts, my husband had vegetarian and we had grilled italian style veges, cous cous and fabulous Sacher Tortes for dessert. Everything was delicious. The Sacher Tortes were exceptional. We paid about... More

Gianottis is a wine bar cum grill restaurant that has you finish the day in style with excellent food in a relaxed setting. Watch the grill chef work the slab and enjoy wonderfully prepared meat dishes, almost American style--the works! I doubt anyone has ever left that place hungry...

Brandnew location with a nice restaurant on one side and a very nice chocolate factory on the other side of the main entrance. The restaurant is a combination of a wine bar with an excellent selection which can be obtained by the glass. Add a local dish of various dry meat, cheese and fabulous bread to go with the wine...

Great place for a good glass of white wine, and delicious lunch! Great marinated salmon, exotic sausages, lamb chops, and more. Try Dezaley wine, a must. Highly recommended.
