It was ok, but......

Overall our dinner experience was uneventful, nothing really special except for the fact I had to go to the service bar to change my cocktail glass, that had 2 big pieces of glass missing in the stem. A couple of people were obviously not paying attention. The food was fine and plentiful, but not... read more

Jenny and her husband Giovanni offer a wonderful experience while dining on fantastic food! We made sure to stop in a few times and were always welcomed with a hug! Jenny and her staff made us feel like family. The food and service are outstanding. Thank you for offering us a special place to relax and dine in style!

My wife and I took our 2 boys here while we were in Freeport on March Break. It was awesome. The staff were fantastic and the lady who owns the restaurant treated us like long lost friends. The food was delicious. It was a very nice evening

My family spent a lot of time in the market area from the Gran Lucayan resort. During our stay this restaurant was a highlight. We wandered in on a weekday evening with 5 of us dressed up a little and looking for some fun, good food, nice wine, open air seating. Our ages ranged from 15 to 68. Met the... More

We stopped here for a lunch when I was in town on business. The female owner was extremely nice and welcoming. We ordered some pasta dishes with conch, which were very good. There was also an appetizer which was lobster chunks in marinara sauce which was fantastic. Try that one for sure. Prices were reasonable, service was great. Check it... More

We love Giovanni's! Great food and the waitperson, "Speedy", had us seated within seconds of arriving. Love the food and the chief, Mr. Giovanni can around and chatted with the guests. We went back several times!

We chose this restaurant because we wanted to eat Italian! The chef's special for $49.95 is a great value & delicious. We each had a glass of wine which comes with this special; I chose the conch chowder & my spouse chose the salad. Halfway we traded so we could each have a taste. Both of our entrees were pasta...

Very good food. The chef's special was particularly good value - 3 courses and a glass of wine. Nice to be served by the owner, they really do take pride in their restaurant

Lovely little restaurant tucked away in the Lucaya Marketplace opposite the Grand Lucayan resort. There was seating indoor and out; it was a breezy night so we chose indoor. I had the spaghetti carbonara which was fair -- sauce a little gummy. My companion had a Fruit de Mare over linguini in a spicy olive oil which she enjoyed. The... More
