We stopped here on the recommendation of a friend and we're not disappointed. We shared a pizza and an order of spaghetti with meat sauce! Delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Had a wonderful time with my family. Comfortable and charming. The pizza is very good. They give you a number and pizza is delivered to your table. Went on a Monday night and the place was packed.

The boys wanted pizza while in Monterey so we went to Gianni's. Big pizza, excellent service! The mozzarella cheese sticks are very good and you have the option of making your own pizza. The gelato is out of this world!!! Save some room!

I have had only takeout but each time the pizza was done to perfection - crispy but chewy crust, lots of toppings and delicious cheese. The perfect balance between crust and toppings. Not inexpensive pizza but worth it!

This is by far the best pizza we've had here in Monterey! I wish I would've taken a picture of my pizza prior to devouring it. The sauce and crust on their pizzas are amazing, both of which are typically a telltale sign of whether...More

Hi, who are the actual owners of this Restaraunt? I am with a group that is interested in finding a way to bring their Pizza into a Campus environment and we would love to talk to them about it. Thanks.

No deep dish, just Italian style crust- very good. The pizzas are topped with plenty of fresh ingredients. Parking is limited (FYI).
