Gianni is located in the Sadama neighborhood, not too far away from Rotermann City. Gianni has a cafe and restaurant. I planned to dine at the restaurant, as I was not aware that the cafe was attached to the restaurant, I ended up in the cafe. The cafe has a simple menu while the restaurant offers a more extensive upscale menu consisting of seafood and meat dishes. The decor of the cafe was elegant and airy. However, I thought the chairs were a bit gaudy.
The salad was delicious with a beautiful Balsamic vinaigrette. The greens were fresh, and the chicken perfectly seasoned and cooked. The shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano encapsulates each bite with a lovely nutty, sharp, and savory taste. The overall flavor was all rounded, coats your whole mouth.
Unfortunately, I did not enjoy the pasta. It was oily and bland. The taste of the oil overpowered the whole dish. The pasta was a little firm for my taste. I requested for the pasta to be cooked a little softer and the chef was kind to make a new plate.
Gianni cafe was announced as the best cafe in Tallinn in 2018. I was expecting better service and food, perhaps the food and the service at the restaurant would be more promising.
