Too many lasagne sheets. It was just padded out with them which made it very stodgy and tasteless. Staff stood looking at paying customers waiting to come in the door yet we’re still 5 minutes late opening.

Came on Friday evening with 2 friends. Atmosphere was fine and the food was great - which was a relief after my last visit when it was AWFUL so was nice when the food was back to normal. However, we had ordered a cheesy garlic bread to come as a side and it didn't come. We weren't checked on at all so couldn't even mention to someone without having to have left the table and my food to go cold. When we had all finished nobody still came over to clear out plates, after 10 minutes we got up to leave and pay. When checking the bill we had been charged for the garlic bread that didn't arrive to our table and when I told the person behind to till (presuming he was the manager) he was really rude saying we did get the garlic bread making me out to be a liar. Our dirty plates were probably still on the table so would have been able to prove we definitely did not receive it. The service was poor again like the last visit but glad the food was not. Hoping next time the service is better so will be 10/10 again.

The food and service has dropped in excellence over the previous time we have been. The restaurant was empty when we arrived yet the few that followed us in were sat right next to us, it would have been nice to have some space instead of sticking us all together after all the restaurant was empty.

I absolutely love coming to Giannis in Kendal, the carbonara is my favourite dish ever. I even preferred it to ones I had when in holiday in Italy, however when I went to Giannis the other day the carbonara tasted absolutely vile and the service was horrific - I’m hoping it was just a bad day and won’t be like this next time as it usually isn’t like this.

Pizzas could be thinner / larger and much less cheese .. to get more authenticity... observation not criticism :)

Despite a problem with the starter, the issue was resolved quickly and satisfactorily, I would recommend Gianni's to anyone.

We had a lovely time at the restaurant , The service was good and attentive the staff were friendly, the only thing we were a little disappointed with was the carbonara pasta was bland. All the rest of the food was tasty, we will definitely come back on our next visit ,

Not as good as previous visits. Service very slow, constantly had to remind waiters for starters/drinks/children’s deserts. One dish over cooked, pizza bases under cooked. Disappointed.

I have been to Paulo's @ Kendal a few times, food and drink has always been good. Space however is of a premium, staff and customers pushing past, then feeling the need to apologise says it all..... sacrifice a few tables please.

There was a vegan menu on the website however I discovered this was not available at the restaurant. Perhaps make this clearer on the website? Staff were very accommodating though and helped me chose something suitable.

The table that we were sat at was situated right in the line of fire for every waiter that went rushing by, my chair must have been bumped into 12 times during my meal. My wife didn't get the main that she ordered, but because we were talking she didn't realise straight away. When we were ready to leave our exit was blocked by a group of waiters standing by the bar arguing about a customer who had been complaining, (next table to us), We were even treated to some choice words, a female member of staff using the 'F' word.
