Wonderful dining experience!

Not sure how this place could be improved. From the owner's friendliness to our server's perfect combination of attitude and care, this will go down as one of the best all around places we've experienced.

We had the Pasta Carbonara. It was delicious. Not for the calorie conscious, loaded with butter. The restaurant is on the dark side, insufficient lighting. Garlic bread sticks should have come with salad but instead came later with the entree. A little too late. Staff is friendly but service is slow.

Service has always been excellent, we have been going there for dinner for the last 15 yrs and have never had a complaint. Mike and his crew do an excellent job.

I have been coming here for 20 years. I have always loved the place and gave it a great review about a year ago. Nice bar and happy hour. On my last 2 visits I made the mistake of ordering the dinner special. $16.99 for a bowl of pasta and two very small medallions of chicken short on sauce and... More

Excellent food. Great service. Garlic rolls, pizza and Pasta Silva are favorites. We have eaten many times at the location near UCF. When family visits from out of town, this is one of the places they want to go.

After living in Florida for 24 years I moved to Idaho, and Giovanni's is one restaurant I truly miss. It is honestly my dream type of Italian restaurant. It's has great pizza. Perfect for taking home for a night of TV or movies on the couch, or great to sit in the restaurant and share with friends to get away... More

Been going to Giovanni`s for almost 20 years, & it`s always quality food & delicious.. Prices are reasonable, too. My particular favorites are the pasta carbonara & spaghetti with meat sauce, but everything is good!

This little place is located in a strip mall very close to the University of Central Florida. They have a small bar and an intimate dining room with tables that can be arranged to accommodate parties up to about 12 or so. Booths are sized for four and 6. This is a real "not a chain" little place with meals... More

I've eaten at Giovanni's many times over the years. The food is always Excellent - cooked just right, very flavorful, abundant portions, served at the right temperature, etc. etc.- and prepared at a very reasonable cost! What the restaurant may be lacking in ambiance is made up for by the excellent food. The service is almost always "spot on". Most... More
