We say:

Old school Italian. With a beautiful view of the city, Giando is the fanciest place around (if you went to high school in Greenpoint).

The Village Voice says:

Outfitted with masses of gleaming chandeliers, this soaring glass box is located on the Williamsburg waterfront between Domino Sugar and the Brooklyn Navy Yard–hardly an auspicious location. But the pricey retro-Italian fare is much better than expected, as with a first course of penne alla vodka with a zingy cream and tomato sauce, and a second course of well-browned chicken rollatini featuring a huge breast wrapped around cheese and prosciutto. The best deal is the prix fixe four-course dinner, $19.95 before 7 p.m. and $29.95 after. For dessert, don§t miss the freshly filled cannoli.
