    Excellent food, service, and atmosphere.
    Definitely recommend.
    Certainly the best Italian in Northampton.

    As always excellent.

    Very nice surroundings and excellent choice of food which tasted very nice.

    Nice simple food, small portions but tasty.

    Lovely food and great service. I will definitely go again.

    The Ravioli Al Forno was delicious but surprisingly for a pasta dish did not fill us up and my friend and I are not the largest of people! So we had dessert. The tiramisu was nice but very filling and my friend had the chocolate torte but it was a thin slice of cake rather than what we understood a torte to be. Nevertheless, the service was great, the atmosphere welcoming and we had a lovely meal.

    As usual service was appalling. We go because of good food. We had to ask for menu after waiting 20 mins. Then had to ask for drinks after another 10 mins then asked to order it was terrible and unprofessional!
    Good food or not, may not go again as service always slow but was worst ever this time!

    GianBiaz is a beautiful restaurant. The staff and owners are great. The food was gorgeous. Highly recommend.

    A lovely birthday celebration in a relaxed, clean and friendly restaurant.

    excellent evening food was great will definitely be going
    back soon and will be recommending.

    Lovely evening.

    Food was excellent and service was good and friendly.

    We had a fab time. Not rushed, service and food were perfect.

    As always, the food was excellent supported by great service.

    I visited this restaurant with a friend, we had a great night, the food was delicious, my friend is vegetarian and said her food was very good. The only reason I am giving 4 * for service is that we were asked 3 x in a few minutes whether we wanted pudding and we had asked a rest between courses other than that it was great.

    Had a table booked for my daughters birthday 23rd February. Was welcomed on arrival. The restaurant was busy and had a lovely atmosphere. The food was very well presented and was very tasty. The staff were very attentive and looked after us very well. Only one gripe, was the chunky chips. £3.95 for 7 chips. Very nice but not worth the money. Apart from that had a lovely evening. Will defo be back.


    Great food, attentive service, my favourite Italian restaurant.

    Once again a lovely meal and lovely service our favourite place to eat.

    Delicious food nice atmosphere and great service

    We come here every month and as always service and food great quality and quantity we shall be back again in a few weeks. Thanks again for another lovely night.

    Favourite restaurant in Northampton. Lovely food again and amazing service and atmosphere - really enjoy coming here.

    Beautiful meal, great staff, great restaurant. Wish they would do the pasta deal for less than ten people though.

    Lovely family run business. Service was excellent as was the food and all reasonably priced fir what we order.

    We look forward to our next visit.

    Beautiful food, just lacked a little on the presentation side of things, as everyone eats with their eyes.

    Value was some what desired for all the “little extra” that you don’t get included. Fresh warm bread on arrival or cheeky sweet with your coffee, mini slice of something you can have to indulge.

    Great ambiance and vibe about the place and Biaz was always on point to know.

    I would employ the waitress at my venue for sure. She knew what she was doing for sure and guided the other girl along the way.

    Overall. I would go again. But not my favourite Italian in the area

    A lovely simple meal packed with flavour and balance.

    We were asked if we had tried the sauces before and if not did we want to try them first to make sure we would be happy with the dish.

    Love this place staff are always helpful and the service is spot on. Delicious hot food was enjoyed by all in my party celebrating my birthday.

    Lovely place, had a lovely evening food and service was great my new favourite restaurant.

    Lovely meal!

    Service was good and attentive. Food was fresh and full of nice falvours

    Wonderful restaurant with great customer service, would definitely recommend to everyone.

    Lovely meal, pasta was cooked to perfection! Service was spot on.

    Nothing too much trouble. Delicious food

    Lovely food as always. Great service. Could not fault it.

    The staff were very welcoming and friendly ensuring that everything was satisfactory. The food was delicious and well presented and portion sizes were large. We thoroughly enjoyed are time at GianBiaz and will definitely return soon.

    As always the food and service was amazing one of my favourite restaurants in Northampton definitely recommend trying.

    GianBiaz is a stylish Italian restaurant in Northampton. The welcome is warm and friendly. We had a share starter which featured a delicious Pesto. We had a glass of Merlot which was lovely.

    Amazing meal will definitely return!

    A delicious meal served by lovely attentive staff. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and my husband and I will be going back again.

    Fantastic meal service was excellent and the place was 10/10.

    We had a wonderful night food was delicious service fabulous we will definitely be visiting again


    Always a warm welcome and excellent food!

    The meal was lovely and service is very good and friendly

    Caspacho as a starter was very poor, it was browny and smelt fishy. my daughter did not want to make a fuss - so didn't but it shouldn't be served.

    Lovely calm atmosphere and superb food .
    Well worth a visit ( or two!)

    Lovely meal!

    Great evening, tasty food and good service we will be back!

    GianBiaz as nice as usual

    Visited with wife and parents - all 4 of us enjoyed fantastic food, with excellent and friendly service. Our favourite restaurant for fillet steak

    Food was great and very pleasant staff
    will return

    I went with four friends to GianBiaz and we all enjoyed our meals very much. The food was lovely. Thank you.

    Lovely meal, ambiance good, staff very attentive. Great for a special occasion as quite expensive really - bill came to 82 pounds for 3 mains, 2 sides, 4 glasses wine and one soft drink. Will return to GianBiaz.

    A great relaxed evening meal at GianBiaz to brighten a cold dark January day!

    Food was beautiful and staff very attentive

    Lovely meal and fantastic food at Hart's!

    Always a pleasant experience at GianBiaz and excellent authentic food.

    Excellent food at GianBiaz, and quiet attentive service. A top restaurant.

    It was my son's birthday so my husband and I were giving him a treat. We had dined at Gian Biaz before and had found it excellent. This time, we were certainly not disappointed - everything was wonderful, again. The food is out of this world. My son said that the fillet steak he had was the best he had ever tasted. We will definitely dine there again.

    Good quality food! Service was a little bit slow, but they were very busy.(a good sign) Staff very friendly.

    Good food, beautifully prepared and presented. Nothing is too much trouble for the quietly attentive staff. Has been a favourite of ours for many years!

    Lovely menu with friendly attentive staff and nice ambience Good value for money would definitely recommend.

    Lovely food, Friendly staff, service with a smile.

    Lovely food and great service at GianBiaz!

    Fantastic food could not fault it. Only one thing service was good but communication between themselves seemed to get confusing at time. Would definitely recommend!

    As ever good food with a service team that look after you.

    My husband and I went to the restaurant for the first time on Saturday for our anniversary, but if you are expecting a quiet atmosphere with ambiance then this is not the place. Tables packed in so close together the waiting staff had trouble serving the customers, and the noise level was so loud we almost had to shout to each other to be heard. We will not be returning.

    Beautiful meal. Best Italian in town!

    The meal was excellent and so was the service at GianBiaz. Everyone enjoyed their food. The only thing was that we ended up paying nearly £40 as 10% service charge which they have written on the menu but in very small print at the end of the page and we had not factored that in.

    Have been dining at GianBiaz for a while now. It's mine and my partners absolute favourite place for Italian! It's always pretty busy but that's because the food is really good! There's something about it that makes it feel very homely. I rate it nice out of ten.

We say…

GianBiaz is a family-owned restaurant that is situated on Wellingborough Road: the heart of Northampton town centre. The restaurant is easily reachable by car or public transport and benefits from ample parking which is free after 6pm.

As an Italian restaurant, GianBiaz strives to bring diners an authentic dining experience that reflects the surroundings of Italy itself. Owned by brothers Gian and Biaz, the restaurant instils a homely ambience but still offers privacy for all its diners. The décor emphasises style and comfort, boasting modern fixtures, a warm palette and reproductions of famous Italian artwork. Stealing the show is the open-view kitchen, which allows guests to see their food being authentically prepared. 

Mastering the kitchen is head chef Gian, whose expertise in Italian cooking has been satisfying diners for many years. Gian knows how to combine traditional recipes with contemporary cooking methods to create a menu that is as flavoursome as it is diverse. Complete with a generous choice of pastas, a juicy collection of meaty mains, and a decadent dessert tray, GianBiaz has something for every taste bud. Some of the highly recommended dishes include chicken ‘Pollo Parmigiano’ coated in mozzarella, Parma ham and napolitana sauce with a wedge of polenta cake; 10oz rump steak cooked to your liking and served with slow roasted tomato and hand cut ‘fat’ chips; and smoked salmon pasta, or ‘Pappardelle Salmone’, marinated in spinach and finished with a hearty dollop of mascarpone and paprika.

Head waiter Biaz leads the front of house, bringing with him superb knowledge on fine Italian dining. With a reputation for outstanding service and a talent for selecting the perfect wine to accompany your meal, he will make you feel well looked after from start to finish.

GianBiaz is a delightful venue for superb food, excellent wine and service. For a good range of Italian meals, look no further than GianBiaz restaurant in Northampton.
