We are Canadians living in Italy. On our first trip to Riccione, we chose Gianni's for dinner after a nice afternoon at the beach. We arrived fairly early, around 5 or 5:30 and there were dozens of tables available both inside and outside. It is an open concept, so even if you are indoors, it feels outdoors, just covered from potential rain or birds flying over.
Our waiter was very nice. He gave us recommendations when we asked for them, he seemed laud back but efficient, offered more bread after I finished mine (big points for that! That's rare!).
We shared an Estate pizza (Estate = Summer in Italian); Tomatoes, Brazil, cheese, and tomatoe sauce. Similar to a a Margherita pizza, with the added tomatoes (My wife's favourite, though I prefer without the tomatoes). The pizza was very large and the right price. We also shared a huge serving of mussels, French fries, and beer. The meal include bread sticks, ketchup and mayonnaise for the fries, and a basket of bread.
The total was €27. We don't usually tip in Italy, and there was a service charge included, but in this case with left the change as all the food was very good, fast, and the service was excellent.
They also offered complimentary shots after our meal. Maybe that put me in more of a tipping mood! Ha ha.
Great spot! Very good food, great atmosphere, and very good service in our experience

We ate a good pizza, not that expensive but personnel was pretty arrogant. Staff expected another tip even though there is already one included when you get the bill.

If you don't go early you'll be in a queue outside! But the restaurant is very big and very professional. Absolutely buzzing, especially in the evening. The owner is out there sorting the crowds and the (all men) waiters are friendly and super efficient.
The meals were great, either fish based or meat based but with a great variety and also good pizzas, And a big vegetarian selection. We returned several times because you couldn't easily find better than this! Outside and inside dining in a super local atmosphere and close to everything.

We are visiting Riccione each year for the beachline festival and the last three years we have been every evening in Da Giannis. The quality of the food is great and the waiters are so lovely and nice. I can recommend the limoncello for afterwards :)

Visited Da Gianni a couple of times for lunch during our holiday in Riccione. Always fast and friendly service, good pizzas and salads and they serve a shot of limoncello with your coffee, so not bad at all!
