We had a fabulous evening, the staff were very patient with my giddy kids and made them feel very grown up.

We are regular customers to Giannis and have been for over 10 years. The Last two times we have been the customer service has gone down hill the new manager seems to be really unprofessional very slap dash Harry. Speaking loudly to other members of staff like it was his own social evening out didn’t ask the basics like is your meal ok. When Asking if we wanted parmasen cheese he practically sprinkled it all over the table he was that much in a rush to serve us. Really disappointed. Bring back the man from Portugal nice bloke excellent customer relations. Food was good as usual but won’t be returning with my family of 4.

Thank you for a lovely night! It was my first date with my current boyfriend, thought i may get a few funny looks seeing as we're gay but all the staff were very friendly and had a great attitude especially the young gentleman that served me (short hair, didn't catch his name) he sounded very polite and had clearly fantastic customer service skills 10/10 would definitely return here on a future date thank you so much!

Have been here a fair few times recently plus the Lancaster restaurant. Love the food and the team are great - especially the lady at Kendal with the headscarf (so sorry I haven't caught her name). Unfortunately every time I've dined I have found the male manager (Neil?) to be rude, curt, unwelcoming, and condescending. Not just to me and my table but to every table plus the staff.

Good, if unremarkable Italian restaurant. Good food portions, even if the menu feels very generic. Unable to provide a bruschetta, which was disappointing, and the service was sometimes overfamiliar. In general, not bad.

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.
