I forgot to write a review when I went here almost two months ago. It was so good that I never forgot the restaurant, the service or the night. Incredible food and great service in a modern but modest setting.

Amazing homemade pasta. Great value, but very well done food. They have pasta dishes you won't see anywhere else. Try to get there on a Tuesday or Wednesday when the burrata is flown in fresh.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to

Rustic and Modern blend together in a magic atmosphere at Giano Restaurant in New York City's East Village. We use only fresh and seasonal ingredients in each of the handcrafted dishes on our traditional and contemporary menus. From a classic American brunch with a twist of Italy to indulgent desserts that are sure to delight, our one love for our customers and our food always shines through at Giano Restaurant. The Art of Food is tradition and innovation. Tradition because it is tied to culture, to history, to place, to a timeless art much like the world itself. Innovation because this involves research and experimentation and, at the same time, a bit of provocation. It's like the history of man: a look towards the future, to progress, without forgetting the experience of the past. To experiment requires knowledge; to innovate requires possession of the techniques from the past. Innovation and tradition are two sides of the same face. The face of Giano.
