Great traditional Italian fare

Love their traditional pasta meals and their pizza dishes. There is always something special and a little "fancier" on the monthly menus. If you love garlic, don't miss the House salad dressing! Strong but delicious! Friendly service.

Our group goes here every May while we are at a conference in Dayton. We had 20 of us there Saturday night with prior reservation. We have been going here for several years. The fist thing we noticed was that they had renovated one of their rooms into a bar area and changed the entrance from the parking lot behind... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant after hearing about it for several years. We ordered pasta although a lot people in the place were eating pizza. Guess we should have went with pizza. I ordered the pasta and sausage and my husband had a shrimp and pasta dish. We didn't get all the hype about the place since... More

Been to Giovanni's many, many times over the years and it has always been one of my favorites. Food, Service and prices haven't changed. The atmosphere Has always been the same as well. Thanks for not changing a great thing! Pizza..AMAZING! As all the dishes are. Best Lasagna next to homemade. Will always return.

Although the pizza was recommended for our first time here, we did not want pizza so we went with their other two recommendations: I got the pasta and sausage. The sauce if a mixture of mushroom and cream sauce so it isn't as acidic. This dish was wonderful My wife got the lasagna and she said it was the best... More

Can't beat their pizza! Lunch time you can buy your own personal fixed the way you love it! New additions to menu are great including calamari which I ate for the first time - will order again. Their Italian dishes are delicious. You don't want to miss this family-owned local gem.

I love local restaurants for the diversity of choices they offer to our smaller communities. This one will not disappoint. Their house dressing has so much garlic in it that it almost burns, but we think that's a GOOD thing. The entire family likes their pizzas but we have also enjoyed their pasta choices, specials, and sandwiches. It's a long-time... More
