Great chef!

The food is excellent, and the patio is very nice, is a bit pricey, and when we were there a family with children made the dining experience not so pleasant. That is not always the case, though. Unfortunately families with small children should not be placed int eh middle of the the restaurant

Having been to Giovanni's many times, I was again pleased with this past visit. One of their special summer events on their patio; Spanish Paella night, and watching The Legend of Zorro. As always, the service was excellent...I enjoy not always being rushed through a meal so the table can be turned, a huge plus from me on this, the... More

Fine dining at its best. Overall food is wonderful and the wine list is the best. Service is excellent. An old world charming restaurant in the neighborhood. Never had a mean that wasn't excellent with excellent service and always a warm welcome.

Love the variety of dishes and the chef's willingness to accommodate food allergies. The menu changes seasonly, which is also appreciated. The entire staff is always welcoming, ensuring that each dining guest fully enjoys their experience at Giovanni's.

Food and atmosphere are excellent. The service, generally speaking is also excellent. The steaks and seafood are both excellent as are the desserts. The early seating special it's quite a value.

Nothing disappointing here. This was a good salad of greens, pears and nice crunchy crumbs. Enjoyed the IPA and received graceful, non-rushed service. I would go back.

Locally, this restaurant has always enjoyed rave reviews for ambiance, service and food. We have visited only once or twice a year because of each of the above being average at best. Then why go back? Because of some friends who have been interested in it or who have given us gift certificates. Without that, we would not return. It... More

Consistently very good! Service is always superb! Unbelievable wine cellar! But, it's always the food that brings me back! House made pastas, freshest seafood, and just killer meats! Old world, old school, dress code, etc., etc... Not inexpensive, but worth it! Make a reservation! Next time in Cleveland, I'm there!

Came in from out of town the night before a doctor appointment. My husband always likes to pick restaurants (and he's so good at it!). From the moment we walked in until dessert....loved it. Beautiful and elegant inside, friendly staff. Out waiter Nino was so sweet and extremely helpful, as we simply could not decide what to order. Every single... More
