Dinner after a busy business day

Nothing fancy. Giovanni's is from an earlier era perhaps the 1950s. Italian food cooked from scratch from your favorite list of entrees. Service is always friendly. They seem to care about you at least for a while. Giovanni's is just comfortable

We have been dining at Giovanni's for years and have never had a bad meal. The salad and dressing are the best! We love their red sauce and only wish I could make it taste that yummy.

Had a wonderful dinner with drinks and were very impressed with the food, the exceptional service, and the great value for a really nice meal. The salad is the best! I even ordered a quart of the house dressing to take home. Had some on a salad tonight!

Good food and atmosphere, but very pricey. Sapore di Mare and Santini's (both in Joppatowne) have food that's just as good in my opinion, and the entrees are much less expensive.

Last week-end, I travelled out the old route 40, well east of Baltimore, for a wonderful evening at Giovanni's - an incomparable treat. So many people had told me about the excellent fare there. Looked forward to visiting this venue with great anticipation. Certainly was not disappointed at all. My Chicken Joann was generous, well seasoned, and accompanied by a... More

Fine Italian/American food in a newly remodeled setting. Live music after 8pm some nights adds a nice touch. Great service without the uppity feeling.

My wife and I and our friends have been regulars at Giovanni's for about 12 years. It is a place we have eaten a minimum of 6 times a year during that time. The food has always been excellent as well as the service. However, our most recent experience left something to be desired. My wife and I were meeting... More

Dated furniture, worn carpets and a dirty fork greeted me. But my server was excellent, made my fork sparkle and made honest suggestions for dinner. My chicken Marsala came cooked as requested - the sauce on the heavier side and whole mushrooms - a nice touch but the taste was slightly off to me so I left the bulk. Their... More

We went to Giovannis for mothers day and were thoroughly impressed. When we pulled in the front parking lot was a little awkward as you have to reverse to get back out (no through way) and from the outside it doesn't look is best but once you sit down you can tell it's casual dining. We ordered the garlic bread... More
