It has been years since I visited Giovanni's. Went for lunch with a few friends. The place is the same as it was 20 years ago. Food was good. Salmon, crab cakes, pork medallions, scallops on a bed of pasta with sun dried tomato, mushroom and butter oil combo. The place was very busy and service was good. Sat in... More

We don't visit here often because of the higher price, but every time we have visited has been fantastic. I love their cheese ravioli. Very good cheese and sauce flavors.

We have been going to Giovonni for over 30 years on and off. Started going there when we were dating. Nice cozy romantic atmosphere. But the last time we went they seemed understaffed, lasagna was underpar-saucy without much meat or many noodles, hard to find the lasagna in the sauce, same complaint with husbands ravioli dinner. Rolls used to be... More

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
