Great Food

I recently hosted a lunch meeting for 14 of my work associates and we had great service. I had chicken parmigiana and I was so full that I didn't eat the rest of the day.

Excellent service, great food at resonable prices. On our "go to" list. The Resturant is in an industrial and safe area of Southwest Detroit.

I have been to Giovanni's many times over the last 15 years, and the food is always excellent. It is well prepared and consistent time after time, and I am continually impressed each time I dine there. Their menu items always exceed my expectations, and truly represent Italian cuisine. The presentation always complements the food and is appealing to the... More

There for a special occasion on 6/24/15. Simply the best! Excellent food from starters to dessert and great service. This is our third visit and every meal has been exceptional. The owners take the time to visit with the guest and make you feel like one of the family. You can tell that they really care about the food, service... More

My husband and I had a fabulous meal here last night. I would say it was one of the two best meals we've had in Detroit (the other being Joe Muer's). Giovanni's is in a part of town that might be off-putting. It's an industrial area across from a Marathon plant. Don't let that keep you from going. There is... More

I surprised my husband for his birthday and took him here. He (and I) are very old school Italian. He is very fussy! He was thrilled! We had the best meal and experience we've ever had! The servers were the best and very attentive, without being "on top" of you. The owner walked around and told us the story of... More

Went to Giovanni's for my per Mother's Day dinner. Giovanni's is not usually open on Sunday so we went the Saturday before Mother's day. We found that they were open on Mother's Day, but that did not spoil my dinner. It was wonderful; I had steak stuffed with crab meat, mashed potatoes and a dried tomato with greens salad which...

We get this place recommended by the concierge of our hotel as great Italian restaurant and chose it over a higher end chain restaurant nearby. The decision was a good one.Getting to the place was a bit awkward. The location is in an area with worn housing, old factories and smelly refineries. The hotel has a valet parking, where they...
