Decided to try out the lounge in Gianni's Pelangi, just upstairs from the restaurant. Great ambience and friendly staff made my solo outing very welcoming. Had their bruschetta which was plentiful. Deliciously good with their house red wine, Italian Cabernet Sauvignon. Followed by a wonderfully sinful serving of chocolate mousse cake. After some mediocre food in a local so-called French...

had a simple meal there with mushroom soup with pizza as i saw they they are making fresh pizza skin (not the pizza hut's pre-done skin!) GOOD mushroom soup i should say. pizza is good for 2-3 people sharing. up to expectation. given the price, the food quality is above average, occasional visit should be great.

Range and quality of food was very good. Wine list is limited. Service quality was very good - prompt, courteous, friendly. The restaurant was well appointed, comfortable and clean. Restrooms ditto. There is an outside 'alfresco' area for dining and or drinks. Food and rinks were relatively expensive compared to other local outlets - but slightly higher quality. Overall, good... More

A very good dining experience with friendly staff and delicious food. The seafood pasta and pizzas are very good and they specially made Spaghetti Bolognese for my 4 year old as they don't have a kids menu. The only downside was that both our deserts sounded very nice on the menu but were poor. Would definitely recommend.

The food is consistently great and my husband swears Giannis serve the best steak in town !! We also love Giannis Urban Lounge too, which also based in... More
