Great pasta.

We came here for dinner after a long drive from Southern Ontario. We had to wait 10 mins at the bar for a table. We didn't mind the wait as the bar staff were prompt to serve us a drink while we waited. Once we were seated the waitress brought us some fresh bread and then our salad. We ordered... read more

This is one of the "pricey" places in town and I am giving it 3 stars only because they never seem to change the items on the menu. Also it is getting blah with the same decor and no updates. Other establishments are staying up to date with ever changing menus and interior renos and this justifies paying a little... More

A friend just visited from Sudbury and we took her to Giovanni's..well she was AMAZED with the Spaghetti Aglio E Olio (Spaghetti with olive oil and garlic.). She said she never cleans her plate but this time she cleaned up every last droplet. I had the chicken parm and it was fantastic...along with gluten free pasta. She paid for dinner... More

We waited a half hour to even get water!!! Then we waited 3/4 of an hour to get our food. It was not all that good even when it came. We would NEVER GO BACK! Anyone who goes here had better be ready to wait forever!

Went here while in town as friend's recommended this place. It was busy on a Saturday evening, but that was expected. The bruschetta was very good combined with salad that was included with the main course. I had a salmon filet, which was cooked perfectly. Vegetables and pasta side also very good. Really liked the pasta sauce. Be careful for... More

I am not sure why it is still referred to to as Spaghetti Bowl? It is by far the most consistent restaurant in town. I recommend to everyone. Keep up the good work with your food, your wait staff and overall atmosphere, we love it.

Good food, wonderful atmosphere. Friendly staff, outstanding customer service. Always a daily lunch special. My mom ordered the pasta special and I ordered the warm chicken salad-a favourite of mine! Why pay the price of fast food when you can enjoy REAL food!

Stopped for a late lunch and were not disappointed. My wife had the baked lasagna and compared it very favorably to That's Amore in Rome. I had veal parmigiana served on a ciabatta roll also very good. Our waitress was very prompt and helpful. Nice location on Highway 17. Would come here again.
