Good food

This restaurant has EXTREMELY good Italian food. The service is excellent. They try very hard to please you. It's a BYO and they bring ice and glasses out immediately.

Four of us ate at BG. Our reservation was honored and we were seated on time. This is a small storefront restaurant with parking in the rear. It is pleasantly decorated with about 15 tables. The noise level was moderate. The service was attentive and professional. We started with the calamari special (16.95). It was tender and fresh with a... More

Had dinner there recently with friends. Food was delicious, the staff treated us like family. They couldn't have been more gracious. Will be back there again soon.

Great food, great atmosphere, and Italian friendliness service. Celebrated one 60th and one 80 the birthday there with almost 40 people and 13 people respectively. Service was equally high quality, and wait for food just right between courses regardless how many we were. Appetizer, antipasto, calamari outstanding. Main courses too many to choose from but nobody had a bad word... More

This is a great bring your own. The food is always delicious and the service is very good. The owner is warm and friendly and loves to greet everyone as they come in. He clearly loves his business and the people he serves.

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
