On the recommendation of friends who used to live in Pacific Grove, we ate lunch here. Had pizza and calzones. Was super good, the sauce was perfect and lots of fillings in the calzones. They also had yummy looking gelato, but we were too full. We had planned to come back for it, but didn't have time. Free and plentiful... More

Our family can never decide on a single kind of pizza. Enter, the big wheel of pizza! It's huge, it's delicious, it's genius, and we all loved it. Can't wait to go back!

We went there for dinner last night and it was nothing special. The pizza was over priced. I've had better pizza at other places. I'm just picky.

Simple pizza and pasta - but tasty and fairly priced. Well staffed. You place your order at the register, pay, and they deliver it to your table. I enjoyed the spaghetti with house-made meatball, while my daughter ate a pepperoni pizza with extra cheese. We also ordered one garlic breadstick, some garlic bread, and two sodas. We had some pizza... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the pizza at Gianni's! If you are in the mood for pizza go here and get some bread sticks while you are there, you will not be disappointed. The toppings we super fresh and the crust was fluffy and well seasoned-I want more just thinking about it now!

This is a stop for us on every trip. We all like the pizza and the family-style setting. If kids are in your party, they'll be able to make noise and move around without anyone giving them a second glance....and the grownups can get a nice adult beverage, too. The gelato bar always ends the visit nicely.
