My husband and I found Giovanni's while desperately searching for good Italian food/pizza. We have been so turned off by all the chain franchises that we thought we would have to wait to go back up north to find a decent pizza. Giovanni's changed our mind. We visited on a Friday night and the restaurant is small, but clean and... More

The wife and I were looking for an Italian place to eat while we were waiting for one of our kid. We went to trip advisor and this place had mixef reviews but we decided to try it anyway. To our enjoyment this place is awesome! Seems like almost everything is home made. Pizza had great flavor and the deserts... More

The food here is very generic and not flavorful at all. I ordered lasagna and it did not taste "homemade" or authentically Italian. It was bland, lacked any seasoning, and I could've made better at home. My husband's chicken cacciatore was equally bad. The chicken was chewy and tasted pre-cooked. Both dishes were visually unappealing, and looked and tasted like... More

We found the food at Giovanni's to be excellent. We recommend ordering from the dinner menu no matter what time of day it is. (They are happy to let you do this.) It is much more interesting than the lunch menu. We are hoping he will open another restaurant a little closer to us.

I travel to the Atlanta area often for my job and this us my meal. For my meal I ordered polo siciliano it came with garlic bread, and a cesar salad. I got a order of shrimp on the side and a cannoli for desert. First off the shrimp was tasteless and gritty, the breading was mushy not crisp, and... More

My husband and some friends of ours went this weekend. We enjoyed everything about this place. The staff was extremely friendly and personable. The food was amazing!! Everyone enjoyed their plate. It is a smaller restaurant but even Giovanni came by a few times to check on us. It was a little out of the way, but I would return... More

This is a small place in a strip mall off the beaten path. Food was so so. Wouldn't go back. Service was okay, but the atmosphere wasn't great. Very small place.
