I recently had the pleasure of dining at a small, family-owned restaurant, and I must say, their veal chop Parmesan was simply outstanding. The dish was a culinary masterpiece, perfectly cooked and tender, with a delightful blend of flavors. The veal chop itself was juicy and succulent, complemented by a generous portion of rich, melted Parmesan cheese. Every bite was a heavenly experience. The ambiance of the restaurant added to the charm, with its warm and inviting atmosphere. The attentive service and personalized touch truly made it a memorable dining experience. I highly recommend trying their veal chop Parmesan Vodka Style if you're looking for a culinary delight that is sure to satisfy.

I hesitate to write this review because now you're all going to go there. Gianna's is superb in every way! The menu is so creative and the food is well-prepared - I had the swordfish special that was perfection that night and just as wonderful reheated the next night. Amazing! The service is welcoming and professional and the restaurant is beautiful

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. I literally ate basically the entire menu and I am somewhat ashamed to admit that this food was better than my grandmother’s. The vodka sauce (which is not my typical order) will change your life. This is a local “mom and pop” type place that deserves a Michelin star. Don’t hesitate but don’t take my reservation please.
