Gianino's stretches its pizza crusts by hand, simmers its sauces from scratch, and serves them both in its warm, friendly dining room. Rev up your pasta palette with an appetizer of toasted cannelloni ($7.15), or jump straight to the main event with a traditional pasta dish like the fettuccine carbonara ($13.15), served with prosciutto, egg, and a cream-based sauce. Specialty pizzas ($12.10–$15.50) include the vegetarian-friendly eggplant with sliced tomato and provel cheese, while the Sonny Delight BBQ Chicken provides a tasteful update to an Italian classic, much like dressing Michelangelo’s David in jeggings. An array of meat and seafood-based entrees away to quell carnivorous cravings, and the organized menu comes complete with suggested wine parings for each course–saving the cabernet and the spaghetti con polpette ($12.20) from the perils of online dating. Reservations are recommended.
