Very good service, but the premises are not clean (e.g. a cockroach was wandering around the room) and the food is, at its best, OK. Not a good experience. Try Cappuccino's next door instead.

The conch fritters were amazing as well as the shrimp cocktail, caesar salad and the shrimp fettuccini. The staff were friendly and kept our dirty plates clear and our water glasses filled. We even had a nice chat with the chef before we left!

My family wanted to eat at this restaurant early in the week, but I was not sold. They finally talked me into it, and I'm glad they did. The food was great, the portions were big, and the price was not too bad. I would absolutely go back.

If we had more time, we would have come back for a second meal here! Fantastic food cooked perfectly!! Local lobster cooked to perfection! Warm yeasty ( homemade?) bread! My daughter ordered spaghetti with meatballs and loved it! the waitress was wonderful! We asked for carrot sticks for the kids and she had zero issues doing that for us! Most... More

The staff and the owner were amazing - they made sure that we enjoyed out evening in the restaurant. My children didn't know what to have for dinner and the owner cam over and offered to make fresh personal pizzas for them. Their food is authentic Italian and their ingredients are excellent! Everything was fresh!

We just returned from a trip to the Grand Bahamas and we ate dinner at Giovanni's. I had the lobster, conch and shrimp pasta, it was by far the best meal we had on the island and we had allot of good food. The service was good and the owner personally came over and asked how our dinner was.
