By far this is one of the Best Italian Restaurants. We go there often and bring friends and family when they come in from out of town. They don't disappoint no matter what you are ordering from their daily menu or specials, which they have every day. Their rolls are freshly baked and come out warm and are delicious. The... More

After a great play at Theatre at the Center on Ridge Road in Munster, Indiana just down the street is a great Italian restaurant, Giovanni's. The decor is very cozy, the lighting is dim, but not too dim and the middle dining room has nice booths, rather private like and perfect for the enjoyment of a very good Italian meal... More

We have been going to Giovanni's for many years with family, with friends and with business associates. I think that the minestrone soup is yummy! My husband really likes the calamari. My favorite dinner item is the grilled pork medallions. And for dessert you cannot go wrong with the tiramisu. We have always had wait staff who are friendly and... More

My wife and I had not been to Giovanni's in many years and we wanted to have a great meal there. We visited Giovanni's on a Saturday night at 7:00pm with a group of another 14 people. We were escorted to the back room where there was one long table for the 16 of us. There was also about 10... More

My husband and I are dinner here a year ago and thoroughly enjoyed our evening out even though we heard about watching someone die after an assassination at the next table(gross!). Last night, the bartender who was about 300# wouldn't even say hello to us and it took a while to get a waitress to order some appetizers. She was... More

Never been disappointed here. On our most recent visit we had the Veal Scaloppini Picatta, Dover Sole and a few different pasta entrees The salads are huge and the soups are always very good. They even offer pizza which is delicious. There is entertainment on the weekends.

I think that there has been a huge turnover of talent in the kitchen. The menu is extensive and the portions are still generous at a reasonable price, but the authentic homemade taste has diminished. The quality of the food 5 years ago was much, much better.

I grew up in Munster, and this has been the go-to upscale dining place for locals for decades. Always a solid meal with emphasis on quality Italian menu items. For a real surprise, however, try their duck which is remarkably tasty! Pizza is always an excellent choice and you won't find a better cocktail mixed south of The Loop.
