Always great!

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... read more

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

Giovanni's has long been known as one of Cleveland's top gourmet restaurants. There is plenty of great food in this town, but what sets Gio's apart in my mind is that I do not feel like I am getting hosed on their wine prices, which is typically the case with higher end restaurants. Their markup is usually less than double... More

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
