Had dinner here with my girlfriend last night. Food was excellent, the fusilli and papardelle were both wonderful. The tiramisu was also amazing. The staff was jovial, funny and very helpful. I'm glad I live nearby because I will definitely be back.

I love places with gardens generally. When it is in the east village and has a cute itallian bartender it is even better! Food is yum, but the atmosphere is why you go. I hope people start visiting because it would be a shame if it closed.

Live around the corner and finally got around to checking it out last night. Absolutely fabulous food, service, and atmosphere. We ate in the backyard and enjoyed personal, homey, and welcoming service from all the staff. The food was spectacular, too - from the octopus to the proscuitto-wrapped cod to the cheesecake. This restaurant is definitely a labor of love and we hope word gets out that it's so worth a visit. Viva Giano!

That's all. Go for the gnudi. Even beyond the gnudi, all in all it was a lovely experience. Food was very good, 3 of the 4 dishes were excellent, though I didn't like the beef rounds with mushrooms, asparagus and shaved parmesan (however my boyfriend did, so who knows.) Just get the gnudi. And don't be deterred by the overly modern front section, just ask for a seat in the back or in the garden. For a nice dinner for 2, with 2 apps, 2 glasses of wine, and 2 entrees, we paid $78 plus tip. Very reasonable for a meal of this caliber in the east village. When you can't get into Supper, try Giano. And get the gnudi.

Stumbled upon this place last night with my girlfriend. Food was unbelievable, service was great and wine was incredible. The outside seating was not ready yet, but I am excited for it to open it looked great.

I had dinner with my girlfriend last night and we had not to wait to get a table. Our three course meal (we had nightly specials) was really good from start to finish and the service is quite decent. Wine list could be better. Overall: nice place to go and enjoy a solid real italian meal but just a little expensive.

We stumbled in last night to have a snack and happened upon an incredible dining experience. The waiter explained the concept of "future & past" - also the source of the name "Giano" - and helped us select a great wine. We had the sage & butter dumplings, which was one of the best meals I've had. It was rich and delicious. The portion seemed small, but the food was so rich that by the end of the meal we were both full. The waiter was attentive and friendly and, it turned out, also d most of the recipes for the restaurant (we had already guessed that he might have been the owner). The only criticism I have is that the music didn't quite fit the restaurant. It was a mix of oldies, and we both agreed that something a little more cutting edge was needed, since the concept and the food was so interesting. I had an americano to finish - it was also excellent - and our waiter Paolo brought out a complimentary dish of tiramisu to try. We were planning to pass on dessert since we were both full, but this dessert was absolutely not to be missed. Normally, tiramisu is made in a large pan and cut in squares to serve (this is the only way I've had it). This dish was fresh made, with the most balanced and creamy marscapone poured over two lady fingers and topped off with cinnamon. Incredible. That experience was nearly worth the price of the entire bill! Definitely a great place to go as a special treat if you're on a "starving artist" budget, which we usually are or, if a $15 to $25 main dish is par for the course, make sure you don't miss out on this restaurant - it might become one of your all time favorite haunts.
