"Please note...I lived in Italy for 7 years and adore Italian cuisine. But the Rana....
1) Ridiculously priced wines. $16 for a mediiocre glass of Pinto Grigio...are they serious?
2) I love al dente pasta, but when the reginette noodles are almost crunchy...I was very surprised.
3) the atmosphere is akin to being in a hot, noisy barn.

"I think good food = happiness and "la Rana" (this is the way we call it at home) brought a lot of happiness to me last week.
I tried prosciutto fritters, reginette and bombolonis, paired with a glass of primitivo...remaining happy the rest of the night.
If I had to ask for something to make this experience great, it would be a more experienced hostess.

"We like the food at this restaurant and have been several times. We had a server who was new on the job and she simply disappeared after we got our dishes. I asked for a glass of wine and it came after we were done. After almost 30 minutes of being done, I asked another waiter for the check. He seemed disgruntled by the request. This kind of thing will ruin a restaurant's reputation if it occurs too often."

"This location was nice, great decor and a good vibe. Quite a good wine list and food looked interesting. Service was terrible, to the point it was almost comical. With thousands of other options in New York, Giovanni Rana will be gone soon if they do not sort our their front of the house service issues. In New York, you do not get a second chance."

"we love this place and the creativity of their dishes.
this particular time the service was extra slow despite not being busy as we had seen it all the previous times. We had to take matter into our own hands for extra cutlery and glasses
The food was very good and rich in flavor, we have never been disappointed"

"Pasta is delicious! Great choices, out of the ordinary options you might get everywhere.
It is a little pricy, but delicious indeed.

"Not a bad place.... However the waitress was kind, yet seemed stressed. Seemed like the busboy was more attentive than the waitress. Cheers to this place, it certainly knows how to cook well. Bravo!"

"We ate here on Christmas Day. It was busy. The staff were friendly and welcoming, but stretched. I was surprised that the restaurant was not more festive in atmosphere and appearance. We had the set Christmas (Eve) menu, which was seafood themed. The kitchen was unable to change the menu to include a meat dish - too busy. The food was good, not great. I wasn't convinced that we had good value. I had mixed feelings about the experience. I might eat here again when it's quieter."
