I come to this restaurant and bar often. Love entertaining real estate clients and bringing them here, when they have not heard about it. They are always amazed at teh food, quality, service, etc. This place is right on Wayzata Bay with Great Lake views...More

Can’t think of a more picturesque setting for dinner in Wayzata than sitting outside overlooking the lake enjoying a cocktail or a glass of wine from their extensive wine list. The Spun Caesar salad is delicious. Be sure to try the Parmesan crostini with it....More

Wonderful location on Lake Minnetonka. Patio seating is best as it’s very noisy inside. Good menu. They don’t take reservations so expect a 30 minute wait for a table whether you’re there for lunch or dinner. Nautical decor.

Are you sure you were dining at Gianni's? Our decor is traditional steakhouse with dark wood and brown leather booths? We are not open for lunch or brunch, just dinner. We do take reservations and will also reserve on our patio. Please visit us soon
