Was staying in Carlisle and recommended this place by our hotel. The welcome was great, had a nice table for 4, so many things to choose from on the menu we all found it difficult to decide. Ordered a bottle of red and white house wine which we all enjoyed. Service was excellent, they offered us dishes that weren't on... More

It's been a long time since I've been to Giannis and it may be some time before I'm back. Nice staff, food very average, left most of my main, it's very tricky eating tagliatelle with a knife and fork...no spoon offered.

Visited this Italian restaurant on a Saturday evening . It's been along since I have been and I remembered why. It's cramped and very noisy. The service was good and friendly but the food was very average and not the best Italian I've had in Carlisle .

There's a convivial atmosphere at Gianni's and there's obviously a lot of repeat business. The service was good, efficient and cheerful, and the pasta meal we had was tasty and good value for money.

Was here with my 6 friends seated upstairs. The service we got off the 2 young girls who were looking after us was fantastic. Food was lovely , didn't have to wait long even though they were busy. Will definitely be returning again .
