Have been to this restaurant more than 20 times on visits to Basel, during all seasons. In the summer, they have great outdoor seating that is covered and in the winter the restaurant is cozy. This is not a fancy restaurant but the service is...More

This is a really nice restaurant, centrally located, very nice food, attentive service, reasonable price/quality relationship. But, I am stating the obvious because many people come and want to enjoy all that, Without reservations chances are low on a Friday or Saturday, so book it.

Business lunch and the place is crowded. Years ago it was for insiders, now it is well established and popular. No frills, focus on a nice variety of Italian dishes, mainly pizzas and pastas with genuine ingredient. We enjoyed the pizza with the fresh mushrooms,...More

We always think that no matter where you are you can't go wrong with Italian and Da Gianni was a good choice. We came for a late lunch; the food was good, typical Italian and service also good so we can't complain.
