Valentine's Day intro

Was out of the country for 3 weeks and didn't make any reservations early enough. Friend suggested we try this place as it was a "hidden gem" that we'd probably be able to get into. My wife and son picked me up from the airport and we arrived around 6:30 and got right in. Server was pleasant and... read more

It is BYOB, which is awesome!! The prices are incredible and the food is the best you will ever eat!!! I have eaten here multiple times and tried almost everything on the menu and never had a bad experience! The lasagna is my favorite, probably followed by the manicotti! I live in Frisco and anyone that ever comes to visit... More

Good food, non chain restaurant. Bathroom is in desperate need of cleaning. Employees could do this while standing around talking to each other.

We stopped in here on a Saturday night just before they closed. Didn't realize it was BYOB until we sat down and tried to order wine. The waiter suggested a store about a block away that sold wine so i ran and grabbed a bottle. He was waiting with glasses and a bottle opener. The food was good, I had... More

The best thing about Giovanni's is BYOB. The food is decent, nothing to write home about, but they'll accommodate large groups easily and it's nice on the wallet.

We started with dry rolls. Could have used some sauce to dip for moistening. Then salad,mediocre. I had chicken with artichokes and chopped tomatoes in a brandy cream sauce. Chicken was very overcooked, sauce tasted like out of bottle. Wife's veal tasted like out of a package. Much better Italian to be found.

Great decor, good menu and wine list and some of the best trained staff in the business. Dined on a very busy Saturday night, reserved a table online and though there were numerous walk-ins waiting, we were shown to our upstairs table promptly. Our waitress Maria was very young; but soon put our fears of lack of professionalism to rest.... More

We eat here on a regular basis. I must say its the BEST chicken marsala I have ever had. My teenagers even ask to eat here often. Its grisly one of the best Italian places in DFW.

We read the reviews at several sites, and went on those recommendations. Food was AMAZING! My wife had the trio, and the alfredo was amazing. I had the Chicken Giovanni's, which was also fantastic. Wasn't all chicken, plenty of shrimp and artichokes, which made it even better. BYOB was a great way to save a few dollars, and drink exactly... More
