We had a wonderful meal here on our last night - wine, appetizers, dinner, desert! The service was outstanding. I had the lobster pasta and my friend had the chicken pasta. We had the gnocchi appetizer and cheesecake and tiramisu for dessert. I would recommend everything.

Eh... its a cozy place i guess. It is out-of-date. The food is basic. The mural on the wall is nice.

trying to be Italian, cute little café, food was okay, but not really for the cost. They rob you at all the local stores.

Went to eat at Giovanni's with my wife and another couple. Staff was really nice and my Fillet minion was delicious. I would recommend it. It is a little pricey but worth it
