Trip Advisor Good Grief you can do better! We had dinner here the one night we stayed in Monterey and oh what a mistake that was. Staff was friendly but the pizza was NOT good at all. I am certainly no pizza expert but it...was bland and between the 3 of us none of us enjoyed our meal. I would definitely look elsewhere as there certainly has to be somewhere better in Monterey to eat than this place. Sorry it just is NOT good.More

Giannini's Pizza is a legendary pizza place in Monterey. We enjoyed salad, their Big Wheel Pizza, and cannolis. It was so tasty! Food was good. Given the virus, it was take out service only. There were several in line as they too know this is...a great place for pizza. We ordered on line in advance. Service was very good.More

Busy restaurant, brief wait, ate at counter. Lasagna very traditional, multiple very thin layers - exceptional presentation and flavor!

I live in Bakersfield, and I honestly cannot find a decent pizza, but Gianni's never disappoints. We had a medium veggie pizza that was loaded! We had it delivered to our motel, which was very quick. I love that they put a mesh piece in...the bottom of the box so the pizza does not get soggy, especially being a veggie pizza. You will not find grease (well, I can't speak for if you get a meat pizza) as we often find even with veggie pizza's. I forgot to ask for plates and peppers and parm, but those came with the delivery. We used the local delivery service and the tax, delivery service, and tip were all included in the charge and STILL it was probably $10 cheaper than a pizza in our town. Last time we were in Pacific Grove we went to the pizza parlor and received good service, the place has a great ambiance, and again the pizza's were amazing. Can't say enough good things.More

Best pizza ever ! We often bring a pizza home from Monterey to the Bay Area to share with friends and introduce them to Gianni's Pizza. Also, it's a great family restaurant ! Try it---you'll like it !

Food never disappoints! Always busy but scored a table big enough for all six of us! From the beer to the pizza/breadsticks, amazing. Service is mediocre but we let it slide because the food is delicious.

We'd read reviews for Gianni's Pizza and weren't disappointed. We aren't keen on seafood and were pleased to find a decent pizza house in Monterey. It was busy during our visit and our order didn't all arrive at the same time which was frustrating. However...the food was excellent and there is a great atmosphere in the restaurant which contributed to a pleasant evening.More

Came here with a group and were NOT disappointed. This place has it all if you love pizza and gelato. Our group was quite large and ordered 12+ pizzas throughout the night. The staff was great helping keep the pizzas coming, clearing plates and empty...pie pans. The pizza selection is great and we were not disappointed by a single one. More of a thin crust style, not quite NY style, but very tasty. Full bar, gelato selection, and other italian dishes were on the menu. We will be back next year, for sure!More

Restaurants can change prices at any time, you might want to call and check. I think they have great pizza and hope you will enjoy.

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