On our to the airport my fiance' and I decided to stop over at Giannis in ballito for a bite. We were greeted by a friendly waiter and seated at a table with a lovely view of the ocean and the durban coastline. Being an Italian restaurant by the beach we opted for the seafood Pizza with the mussel pot to share (Pizza with a little hole in the middle for the mussel pot). When the food arrived, we started to dig in and I had the following slightly "evil" thought: "my fiance is going to have to order his own because now this is all mine!" it was so yum. I highly recommend this Pizza if you ever find yourself at Giannis. Besides the delicious food, I do feel that the decor could do with some updating. Oh and the cosmopolitan cocktail was gorgeous as well.

The staff were very friendly, and attended to all our specific and personal needs.

The restaraunt offers popular Italian dishes as well as sea food and general medditeranian cuisine.

The restaraunt is limited to non-fish eaters, vegetarians/vegans and people with special dietry requirements.

The staff are attentive and food comes relatively quick.

The view from the restaraunt is breath-taking, definately a plus point.

The place is large and beautifully decorated in Italian decorative fashion.

I would recommend this to large group, who enjoy sea food and Italian food, but not for vegetarians/vegans.

Thanks for the wonderful service though
