Yannis is a Greek and Italian restaurant. They serve the same fare as a place like Latin King or Johnnys. That said, they are not quite as good as those places. However, it's clear that all the employees care a lot and the service is...More

My husband and I and 2 friends ate at Yanni's and were very disappointed in the customer service and the food. We had to continually ask for drink refills and more bread. Our salad didn't consist of more than a cup of lettuce. The onion...More

We enjoyed our first trip to Yanni's. I ordered Steak de burgo and my husband had the Gyro platter. We enjoyed the ambience of Yanni's and the service was great. We will be back to enjoy another meal.

Visited Friday night in the middle of prime dinner time - no wait! Garlic knots and fettuccine were delicious​, but I wish the chicken had some seasoning too. Great service - we'll be back!

First time to this establishment. Cute interior, ok wine list, good ambiance. Food- just mediocre!! I've had better fettuccini as it was weak on the flavor and a very thin consistency. It was like hot cream over noodles and no garlic! The chicken souvlaki was...More

I enjoy bringing my kids here to try saganaki - flaming cheese! The photos on the walls are fun to look at. Prices are reasonable. There is always a crowd, but never a long wait - a sign of a good restaurant.

This is a Great Buffet with a nice variety of soups salads pizzas and meat and potatoes. The price is very fair. The atmosphere is great. And the wait staff is fantastic. I will continue to eat there.

A Greek restaurant in Iowa? Well, yes. We stay in Ankeny several times a year. We usually eat at one of the Chinese restaurants in town. This time we decided to try Yanni's. Good gamble! Food was authentic Mediterranean, well-prepared and tasty. Reasonable prices in...More

The menu is Italian and Greek. This food is absolutely wonderful. Best lasagna I've ever had. Prices are very reasonable. 2 people for dinner and a glass of wine will run around $50.

Outstanding Greek foods (salads, entrees, desserts) and extremely hospitable staff! Encourage you to drop in and view their menu. It is one of my favorite restaurants in Ankeny.
