For some reason, the wine I ordered tasted like someone put water in it. The food took forever to cook. Generally speaking, I was not satisfied with the service.

We stumbled upon this place -a group from Manhattan and Westchester who happened to be in the area, and loved what we found.

Everyone from the owner to the all the staff was friendly, welcoming and seemed to genuinely enjoy their job and the food (a big plus in my book). The owner was especially cheerful, helpful and fun.

The wine was wonderful. They have an excellent selection of Italian wines, just enough to choose from and not be overwhelmed, all good choices and price ranges.

The food was SUPERB.

We had a gnocchi special that was out of this world, and I generally never eat gnocchi out because it is so rarely good (I am not the one who ordered it but I ate it off my friend??s plate). It literally melted on your tongue the moment you put it in your mouth! No kidding. The broccoli rabe was delicious, (another thing I am a very fussy about since it is my absolute favorite thing in the world). The mozzarella appetizer was so fresh it tasted like it was made moments before, I am sure it was made that morning.

The desserts were unbeatable as well! The tiramisu was the real thing, not the pale comparison traipsing around Manhattan. The flourless chocolate cake was so supreme one small serving fed 4 with great satisfaction. The ricotta cheesecake, another thing that can be hard to find fresh and delicious, was light, and perfectly creamy with a little citrus-I loved it.

The pace is charming and the menu is over all reasonably priced. I will travel from Manhattan as often as possible just to come here. The highlight for me again was how everyone who worked there, down to the busboy, seemed to sincerely enjoy and take pride in the delicious food they were serving. This place has a real family atmosphere where everyone enjoyed being there, especially us. I can't recommend Da Gianni enough!

My absolutely favorite italian restaurant, and this includes many a restaurants to choose from. Food is fabulous, atmosphere - like you took a trip to Italy, wine selection is very nice, Gianni himself is wonderful, warm and hospitable.
A MUST for anyone who likes italian food, who doesn't know but wants to try italian food, who is just undecided on what to have for dinner. The best dish - it's super hard to separate - the are all fantastic, and I think I tried them all... there is a superb scallops appetizer, pasta dishes are delicious, chicken dishes - great, most succulent steaks, stuffed veal ... desserts... you name it, whatever your preference in food - and it's amazing. I am getting hungry just writing this. Service is a tiny bit slow, but quality of food makes up for it, and then some, and it's a pleasant wait, with soft italian music and nice friendly staff, but it is not really a place to run in and run out... and who would want to. A little pricey but nothing in comparison to those italian restaurants in Manhattan, and yet the food is probably better.
LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT.

Nicely surprised! Just went with friends on a Saturday night and had a great time. We were skeptical since no one had been there before, but the ratings were good and we really wanted to go somewhere to eat outside, so we tried it.
