We required a restaurant for a late lunch on Friday and Giovanni's was the only one I could find that was open after 3pm. I had my reservations given that it is in a shopping mall, but forget that! Great restaurant. Friendly, efficient service from when I first phoned, to arriving and being seated to being served drinks and food.... More

In central Greenpoint, Giovanni's is the ideal spot for a quick meal of a cup of coffee. Good business networking.

We Had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful meal of saltimbocca, kabeljou, steak and linguini plus a well recommended kleine zalze Chenin blanc today. All of which were well prepared, tasty and generously portioned. The restaurant was fully booked yet Cloudious was attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. The management is on top of their game and it shows! A great discovery... More
