My boyfriend brought me here after rave reviews. He said they had recently changed the interior to be more modern/hip. The inside seemed stuffy and stuck up. I decided to let that slide. Upon looking at the menu, nothing seemed familiar. I'll admit I'm not Italian and I'm not a extreme foodie. I didn't know what half the items were... More

This is an amazing restaurant - true fine dining experience in Cleveland. Jean Pierre is an amazing captain and brings great service and personality to the restaurant. The food is consistently high quality and the menu changes keep the food up to date and interesting. After living in New York for 14 years and eating out a lot it is... More

We have been going to Giovanni's for over 30 years. It is consistently good. professional service, terrific wine list and great food. They have recently remolded it and the decor is fresh and inviting. You will not be disappointed.

Overpriced, stuffy place. My last visit was true disappointment. Heavy food, poor service and high prices. Did not like atmosphere either. Never again.

Ended up in Beachwood area due to construction detour. Giovanni's on Chagrin Blvd. was a very impressive and elegant establishment. Dinner was outstanding, starting with Pasta Fagioli like my mom used to make. Dinner consisted of Cappellini with capers and a fine salad with beets and assorted greens. A higher priced Italian eatery but portions were generous. The waiter checked... More

I've dined at Giovanni's on and off since 2005, and I must say it's gone from a more formal traditional Italian place (excellent food no doubt) to a keeping up with the times with well prepared Italian. The calamari always excels. The pasta are wonderfully well done, prepared at table side. And of course, the irrepressible Pier - I always... More

We wanted to go someplace special for our wedding anniversary. Like many people, we dine out frequently, so this was a tough call. Then we remembered Giovanni's! It turned out to be a perfect evening. The dining room is classic and elegantly understated. Our comfy table for two afforded us a great view of one of the wine rooms there.... More

It surprises me when a reviewer down grades Giovanni's food. Our experience is that the kitchen is expemplary for the most part. Our recent visits sampled, soft shell crab, beef tartare, veal chops bothregular and mianase, penne pasta witha tomato cream and bits of sausage, seared scallops and strangely titled Wreck fish. All were either outstanding or very good. And... More

We celebrated a very special occasion by returning to one of the Cleveland area's top restaurants for the first time in 20 years. We remembered it as exceptional food and outstanding service, so we expected both. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing---- a B- instead of the A+ we had expected. It started with the lobster bisque, which was excellent, but... More
