Very Good Food and Service!

We had the Chef's Special dinner for two. Overall, our food was very good, service was very attentive and friendly, seating was comfortable and prices seemed reasonable. Definitely recommended!

After showing us the special for 2 seafood pastas, 2 salads, 2 glasses of wine and dessert for 49.99, we were sold! The owner of the restaurant even came out to reiterate the deal, lol. The pasta was good! See... More

Best of best. Tucked in on a side street just down from Rum Runners and the Daiquiri Bar just off Count Basie Square. Giovanni's Italian and Ginny is Bahamian and all their dishes are great. Reservations aren't required but I recommend to go ahead to ensure your spot. Nice wines, fantastic desserts. At least one person in your party needs... More

Inside or outside seating. A very extensive menu with price range to suit any budget. Quality and quantity of food items is very good.

Awesome atmosphere. Get there before 6 pm-they offer an early bird menu with affordable prices. No complaints.

From the grumpy non speaking waiters and male owner to the badly cooked stuck together pasta in disgusting sauces that looked congealed. Dont waste your money! I have never eaten such bad Italian food. Capuccinos looks much nicer.

The food was excellent. The owner and his wife were in the dining room talking to the customers and were very helpful in telling about the different dishes.

We found Giovanni's who were serving an early bird dinner between 4 and 6 o'clock. $10.99 and a free glass of wine !! There was a really good choice of pasta dishes, which was all we wanted. The staff were lovely,... More
