PIZZA!!! Instead of the fast food Pizza delivery services in Ankeny I highly recommend ordering the Greek Pizza to go with a side of Yanni's combo platter, choosing the Fried Zucchini, Fired Calamari and Toasted Ravioli. You won't regret it. This is real Pizza, not a laboratory chemical concoction designed to enrich a corporation. Alan Maupin
One of our favorites! Great food and the garlic knots are amazing! Michaela Moore
Yanni's has consistently served our family exceptional Mediterranean dishes while providing top notch service. We will continue to dine-in and order take-out on a regular basis. Thanks for the great service Ozzy! Janna Alampi
