Early bird dinner.

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... read more

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.

I was so upset after eating at this restaurant. My daughter and ate at this restaurant on our trip to Freeport. When we went to put more money on the credit card for a tip the waitress told us not to. She said that the owner takes the extra that you give them.

Who doesn't love Italian food? We took friends here each week of our stay and thoroughly enjoyed the pasta and wine with our early bird dinners.

My daughter and I enjoyed an evening meal here. I had what was one of the best chicken marsala meals I had ever had! The chocolate mousse was also delicious. Our waiter, Robert, was a pleasure!

well, I am Italian and when I travel abroad I try to stay away from Italian restaurants, but was curious about this one. The wine was very good, but forgot to check the price, which was very high I discovered later. Food was rather poor. The whole restaurant reminded me little Italy in NYC.

Quaint restaurant with wonderful food, I wish we had dined here two nights during our stay instead of just the one, Tirimasu was the best!
