We came here with friends who are local, and dinner was delightful. They had made reservations, and boy was that a good idea. This restaurant has a fairly large waiting area and it was still standing room only. We didn't order an appetizer because our dinners came with insalata verde and garlic bread.

Best food we have had in a long time! We had a group of 5 and everyone loved their dish! It is busy and people are waiting at 5:00 for the doors to open so I would highly suggest reservations or plan to wait. The pricing on the menus is affordable and the food is amazing!

This is one of our favorite restaurants close to home. The food is always fresh and fabulous. The service is impeccable! On the weekend you must make a reservation because it's always busy. It's a family run business and they do a marvelous job!

Papa Gianni's is a gem. First time here. Veal parmigiano was outstanding. Great homemade sauce, garlic bread, calamari was tender and a fantastic dinner salad. Good wine selection and great service.

I haven't given many 5 ratings, so I tried to find some reason to lower the rating but I could not except for the fact it is located in a mall but it is decorated so nicely it didn't matter. The veal saltimbocca and seafood pasta dishes' were both excellent and came with a nice salad and awesome garlic bread.... More

I have to travel 45 mins. to go to this restaurant. It's worth it for the Veal Dishes. Also the desserts are awesome.

If you are looking for great Italian food, this is your place. Great service, great food and a great overall experience. Visiting family in the area and this was a spot they have enjoyed before. Was not disappointed. Reasonable prices and good portions. Our server was very attentive and took care of us as a server should. Don't remember his... More
