We study the Riemannian quantitive isoperimetric inequality. We show that a direct analogue of the Euclidean quantitative isoperimetric inequality is-in general-false on a closed Riemannian manifold. In spite of this, we show that the inequality is true generically. Moreover, we show that a modified (but sharp) version of the quantitative isoperimetric inequality holds for a real analytic metric, using the Łojasiewicz-Simon inequality. The main novelty of our work is that in all our results we do not require any a priori knowledge on the structure/shape of the minimizers.
