Large family dining room with great pizza and salads. Prompt service, pay ahead. So much better than top rated Allegro in Carmel.

We went to Monterey for our anniversary. We are both Italian and LOVED Gianni’s pizza. What a cute place! It was busy but worth the small wait. Young boy working there was so impressive to see. He worked hard and was running around helping guests....More

The pizza crust was excellent. I wish there had been more artichokes on my chicken/artichoke pizza. They also serve a wide variety of gelato.

Wow!! They really care about their pizza to put that much effort into a homemade gluten-free crust, as opposed to the frozen prepackaged ones most places use. My chicken/artichoke pizza was out of this world, so grateful I used Trip Advisor to guide us here...More

We loved Gianni’s. Great family restaurant/pizzeria with plenty of seating. Laid back atmosphere and good pizza. We can’t wait to visit again. This will be a regular stop whenever we visit Monterey.

We went last week and they are not up to date. The pizza we ordered was actually $5 more than what is listed. We would have paid what we did, even if was printed on here correctly. But a $5 discrepancy should be updated ....

No deep dish, just Italian style crust- very good. The pizzas are topped with plenty of fresh ingredients. Parking is limited (FYI).
