      I've been to Jianna a couple of times, and think that it is mediocre at best. The atmosphere is very nice, but when I go out to eat the food is of primary importance. I much prefer iDEALE, a cute little neighborhood restaurant on Grant street. It is owned by a Roman named Maurizio, who makes all of the pasta, bread, etc. on the premises. The gnocchi is to die for! Anyway, I try not to tell to many people about ideale, as I like to keep this gem to myself- ;)
