Success! Thanks for posting your review of Giano. You’ve done the world some good today.

Excellent food and service

Took some friends here after reading the positive comments and was not disappointed. What a charming spot! Food was excellent - the server recommended the gnudi and it was melt-in-your-mouth good. Cheese plate and eggplant in puff pastry appetizers were lovely and the mint panna cotta dessert was perfect for summer. It was nice to see that almost the entire staff was Italian, and that Italians were eating there a... view more

Great food and service

Thanks to the previous CitySearch reviews, my boyfriend and I dined here on Saturday night. We were delighted with the service, the menu selection, the ambiance, and the outdoor seating area. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owner and seated immediately. Our server was very knowledgeable about the specials and made the right entree recommendations. I chose the red snapper and finished every last bite! My... view more

Great discovery in East Village - Truelly ""Authentic"" Italian Restaurant in NYC

Had dinner last nite with a few friends and we were plesently surprised with the quality and authenticity of the food. We started with some antipasto (cheese, salami, olives) and then ordered our appetizers. The polenta and eggplant parm with buffalo mozzarella was fantastic. we then had some pasta which was excellent. Our main courses varied from Lamb Shank to Red Snapper and everyone of us polished his plate. ... view more

Authentic Italian dining in an ultra cool atmosphere

My wife and I just came back from eating at this restaurant in the East Village for the 5th time and we can't wait to go back for the 6th time as it is simpy amazing ! The food is the best Italian cuisine I have had outside Italy and we have eaten at most of the top rated restaurants in NYC and have been all over Italy many times. The owners, the chef and most of the staff are all from Italy and you can tell by the... view more

Great Patio Dining

This relative newcomer to the East Village, run by an old hand, has a kind of split personality, just in keeping with the name of the place. Giano (Janus) was the two-faced god of the Roman mithology. In front the bar, open to the street, with long tables for large parties, music that can be loud at times, a very active social scene. In the back a tranquil lovely East Village backyard/patio with echoes of an Italian ... view more

Best Service I have had in NY... I think EVER... and Amazing Food!

Giano is a true gem in the East Village. They have a great dining room, bar and large back patio. They have a great wine list and the cuisine was amazing... offering both traditional and modern Italian dishes. We shared the strawberry spinach, and goat cheese salad, the Gnudi and the Tagliolini with Truffles. All of the dishes were absolutely delicious! Our wine and water were constantly refilled without us even no... view more

cute garden, fresh delicious food, friendly&professional staff

went here for the first time last week for an art event and fell in love with the exposed brick interior and the outside patio. my friend and i were intending to stay only for drinks but once we saw the menu, it was all over... the menu has one page of more traditional dishes, and another with more innovative, creative options. both traditional and non-traditional options are divine. i recommend the pasta with red... view more

Quite simply the best new true Italian restaurant in NYC !

This place is truly amazing. Only tell your BEST friends about this new restaurant or soon you will not be able to even get a table. We have been back 4 times already since it opened and I usually never write reviews , but couldn't resist this time. The attention to detail with every aspect from the food, wine list, service , decor, and overall experience is incredible. The food is authentic Italian , both th... view more
