We recently ate dinner at Bon Giovanni's based on the recommendation of friends. We had a reservation for 7:30 and were seated in about 10 minutes. Although the restaurant was full, the acoustics must be very good because we didn't have a problem talking with our friends at the table. We started with the mussels and calamari special, both were... More

Visiting a friend in NJ, we were headed to a different restaurant for lunch but were intrigued by Bon Giovanni billing itself as Italian with a touch of Brazil. We were not disappointed. They have a good-value lunch menu for $10.95, with a nice variety of foods. Each entree includes a salad. We both had the house salad, dressed perfectly... More

Went for lunch with two friends one of whom had seen an ad in the local paper. The lunch special was a great value for $10.95, it came with a salad and a selection of entrees. We had the Penne Vodka with Chicken, Chicken with tomatoe and mozzarella and the Eggplant Parm with Linguine. All were very tasty. We will... More

Almost went to Varka but instead elected to check out this new place. What an inviting venue. The owner was very genuine and generous, offering a few beers from his own stock as opposed to my walking 2 blocks to a liquor store ( I walked). This is a very cozy environment. The food was great. We had an egg... More

Very welcoming atmosphere with a huge variety of meals. Sam & his wife Maria makes you feel like relatives instead of customers. Its BYOB and no matter what wine you bring in there is something on the menu for an excellent pairing. All food is cooked when you order it and the chef is very obliging if you want to... More

We had a less than desirable dinner at Bon Giovanni. The first negative was that the restaurant was empty, at 6 PM. We were the only people in the restaurant. We looked at the menu, which was very limited, and decided on a meal. My issue with the restaurant was not the food itself, the food wasn’t’ bad. It was... More

This BYOB is a small boutique restaurant in Ramsey, NJ that features a well rounded Italian menu -- And with a Brazilian Flair! If you do not see your favorite dish, mention it to the owner and chances are that they can make it for you. They are also great at making salads and dressings to your needs. My husband... More
