The most hard thing in new city to find good restaurants but this one was amazing and it's now the first choice if we think to eat outside

I've been to Gianoli lots of times and anytime I was absolutely satisfied. Maybe because I'm Italian and I feel home someway, but the people in there is very kind and the food is good. Italian taste with German portion. Nonetheless is not expensive. Absolutely to go.

Food is good, my girlfriend and I had a starter and some pasta. The problem is that if u go with u partner, you may end up in a long table touching your neighbour with your elbow, even if we had booked. So, I'd not recommend it for intimate dinners, but for the rest it's fine.

Gianoli is a typical Italian restaurant where the cuisine hasn't been modified like it's done in several foreign restaurants to suit the country where it is located. The menu doesn't have a big variety of choices - although they have different menu for each day of the week. The place isn't big so it's better to reserve a place before... More

I don't like the style and atmosphere inside, chairs and tables look uncomfortabe and it feels like sitting in a kitchen at home (the way the furniture are set up); outside it is very nice though; Food was good, but not spectacular

The restaurant was packed when we arrived on a Saturday night. Interesting décor and a very buzzy atmosphere. Our mains, plus a shared starter and dessert were all quite enjoyable, no real complaints. The wine list was fairly extensive (and browsed via an iPad), and I was pleased to find a number of options served by the glass. Our bill,... More

For those who like to eat and drink like in an original italian "Pub", eg the lights over the tables are bulbs in tomato tin cans. Ask for Marco, and he will serve you with the best fresh italian food in the area (no pizza!). Excellent wines. Only 40 seats, make your reservation early.

For those who want to serve a dinner with Italian, Gianoli is the best place.I n a warm and welcoming atmosphere, you can confidently serve Italian specialties (pizza, salads, pasta) but also some specific German. The service is impeccable, the staff do everything to make you feel better. It's a place I will return and that I recommend to all.
