Great food. Veal parmigiana was delicious pasta was good and sauce was excellent soup of the day was very tasty. French onion soup was very good too. The service was excellent. The waitress was very friendly but yet professional. I recommend this restaurant. They have early bird specials.

Looking for a close place to have dinner before going home. Drove by, saw it open and here we are. So far the service is great. The new decor is bright and clean. Also, where you get a 3-course meal for $17.95? I ordered the special, ny strip(perfectly cooked) with shrimps. Onion rings, and comes with soup and salad. Hubby... More

We have been back twice since they reopened after renovating from the fire they had a few months ago. The interior is somewhat the same but they took out a step up dining area, the place seems brighter, and they have seating by the bar area. The menu has been changed for the better with a nice selection and some... More

My family has been going to Yianni's for years. We always appreciated the good value, great food, and friendly atmosphere. They were closed for a few months because of a fire, but the restaurant is brand new and better than ever. All of my friends enjoyed it. Service was good. Will definitely be back.

Lots of good Italian in Rochester area. This is just "meh". Typical menu for the area, pastas, chicken, beef, seafood, salads bread. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't that good. It was really just ok. I make my own sauce, consider myself an aficionado of Italian fare and good food in general. This is basic. We had chicken French, pasta... More

I have wanted to try this place for awhile. It seems that whenever I drive past it is always busy and I wanted somewhere different to eat with my dad. They had a good lunch crowd here today and the dining area was nicely laid out. My dad went with the Italian sausage which is served on an Italian roll... More

I brought my wife here one Saturday Evening because my Parents used to come here before they retired and moved. We came around 5:00pm around the Early Bird Time. I was very surprised to see there were only 2 other tables full in the entire restaurant. I was also surprised to see that almost nothing has changed since my parents... More

We have eaten here many times over the last 10 years and always enjoyed it. The shrimp carbinara is excellent. All the food is great and the family service is a delight.
