Extraordinary service

Wife and I brought our 8 month old son that recently learned to crawl to Giovanni's. The staff were amazing all the way through. Our son really wanted to crawl around our table and play, and for a bit, we let him do so while taking time out of our meal to keep him out of trouble. After a few... read more

We went there twice within one week. The place is very nice and staff is great but the food is lacking if you expect an Italian experience. The pizza is generic and reminds me of Boston Pizza - nothing special. The Linguini Putanesca was frankly, terrible. The linguini was spaghettini or angel hair spaghetti, not linguini. The pasta was overcooked.... More

Always come to Giovannis for our family gatherings and are never disappointed! Although there was a bit of a wait for a table, it was well worth it! Everyone had thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I had the tour of italy and my husband had the ribs and shrimp. The food was to die for! We never seem to have a... More

I had the ricotta cheese ravioli. Although homemade (according to the server), they were just OK and at $17, not a bargain. (I noticed that the same dish is only $10 at lunch.) The salad that came with the meal was big and fresh. The "Italian" bread is terrible, more like a hotdog bun.

Went for lunch this weekend. Had the eggplant parm, which consisted of very fibrous, tough grilled eggplant, some tomato sauce, some cheese, on a ciabatta. this did not resemble an eggplant parmigiana sandwich to me at all! the greek salad was served in a bowl. the bowl was half-full with a soup of salad dressing, so that the bottom half...

We were visiting the area for the first time, and we had a good meal here. All of our meals were tasty, and we had a very pleasant server.

Food was outstanding but the service was quite poor. The staff was attentive but it took A LONG TIME to get our food. I surmise that it wasn't entered because tables seated after us got their food before we did. But, once it arrived it was very flavorful. The menu was quite extensive and the prices were reasonable, but it's... More

Service & food are excellent. A casual atmosphere for a quick bite or to take your time & enjoy. Every thing to eat is always fresh and very, very tasty. Portions are generous and I always leave with a people bag for lunch the next day. Nick and his staff are always friendly and make you feel at home. I... More
