We all dug the loud 50's and 60's music playing, but the food didn't inspire. Expensive cocktails. Three seafood entrees came with pasta galore and a side salad. My chicken parm came with "choice" of small pasta dish or salad on the side; cost was $4 additional to add a dinner salad. The server could not adequately explain rationale for... More

The '80s are still alive in this classy Italian spot along Route 40 in Edgewood owned by the Martino family. We walked in out of the sun for a late lunch around 2:30p on a Friday. You immediately can sense a difference in atmosphere as it is quite dark inside. There is no sunshine sneaking through any windows... total immersion... More

Do not understand many of the negative reviews; my title sums all the meals we have had in this old style venue. Paul, our server explained the specials; which he altered for me because I have a shrimp allergy. I ended up with scallops, clams and crab w/Alfredo sauce over angel hair pasta. Very large serving and half in a... More

Based on Trip Advisor I made a reservation for a group of 7 - 4 adults & 3 teens. Some reviews mentioned the dated decor, but if the food is good, I can deal with that. The menu seemed exactly what I wanted. I was disappointed and embarrassed that I brought the group there. We all ordered something different and... More

Ciao, My niece, Teresa, a local, frequents your restaurant as she really enjoy dining with you. Yesterday, she suggested that the girls in the family get together for dinner at your restaurant. I drove in from near Annapolis myself. My mother was Sicilian so I was raised with a Sicilan family and culture. My experience in your restaurant last evening... More

The food is always delicious at this restaurant. I have eaten at Giovanni’s for both lunch and dinner and have always found that the consistency in the quality and taste of the food to be top-notch. The atmosphere is a little dated. I always feel that I am going back in time to the 1920’s or 1930’s when I enter... More

This has been a good lical Italian restaurant for many years. The food was quite good, large portions and service by our waitress by Julie was terrific. We are a large group (11) and fun loving so it takes a really good server to deal with us and Julie made our dining more pleasurable for sure. It does seem odd... More

The food was great. It was served a nice pace. The house salad is really good. Nice balance not to strong and doesn't overpower the salad. The meatballs my wife had were fantastic, and I had the sausage and peppers, I thought the dish was very tasty. Well seasoned sausage and a slightly spicy sauce of sweet tomatoes, red and... More

We had a great experience at this restaurant. Very good service and the dinners were huge. I had stuffed eggplant and I barely could finish my meal. Reservations are needed, if not, you have to sit in the bar area which wasn't bad. I definitely will eat here again!!
