Business Dinner

Stopped in and enjoy dinner with friends a week after the snow storm that crippled the area. Would go back if I'm looking for good Italian food

Giovanni's is an Edgewood institution . . . Hearty Italian food, friendly bar and wait staff, live bands on the weekends, and always good conversation with neighbors and new friends at the bar. I go there for carry-out and usually wind up in a lively discussion with the staff and patrons, while I enjoy a glass of wine. This place... More

Giovanni's is where you want to dine if you're craving delicious Italian food. Homemade pasta, seafood and veal topped with their delicious sauces...just to mention a few of their menu items. Giovanni's will not disappoint!

We went here frequently for years when we lived in Harford County, and now drive up from Anne Arundel or stop in on our way south on 95. The food is always satisfying, and in generous portions. Great for an "Italian fix", fun night out with friends, or couples night! Veal and pasta dishes are wonderful, prices reasonable, decent wine... More

Giovanni's provides a consistently excellent dining experience. My dining partner ordered the Seafood Alfredo: Shrimp, crabmeat, scallops, and broccoli served in an Alfredo sauce over your choice of pasta. Served with garlic bread. I ordered the Seafood Nicole: Mussels, shrimp, and scallops served with your choice of marinara or basil white wine garlic sauce. Served over your choice of pasta... More

Have been going to Giovanni's for years. Simple Italian menu but restaurant is consistent in both service and quality. Mainstay for the local APG employees based in Edgewood. Highly recommend for lunch.

Once again, we chose to drive a distance to dine at Giovanni's in Edgewood. We chose a large booth against the wall and while very comfortable, the lighting in the main dining room has an annoying stadium intensity. We will request the more pleasantly dim back room next visit. Heather was our waitress for the second time. Her service is... More

We've been going here for almost 20 years and have never been disappointed. The service staff are known by name by most customers due to their long tenures with the family. The quality of the food is consistent and the portions are large. The baked-fresh bread baskets are legendary (crusty on the outside and soft on the inside) and I... More

Our group of four have enjoyed Giovanni's for many years. Heather our server was A+. I had my favorite, Chicken Cacciatore; the marinara sauce is exceptional. Contained filet of chicken, peppers, onions, celery, black olives and mushrooms. Sound good? It is always very good. My wife had a special; scallops, shrimp and lump crab in a white wine sauce.
