We tried this place for lunch. We got the buffet so we could try a little bit of everything. They served frozen meatballs! The pasta was overcooked, pasta primavera was buttered pasta with some veggies in it, they were not restocking in a timely manner and the set up was not easily accessible. It was just AWFUL!!!

“A Great Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Our group of 5 had our monthly dinner here.
The aroma of wonderful cooking hit us upon entering.
The restaurant was immaculate and nicely decorated and had small vases with 2 lovely fresh roses on each table.

We arrived early to try the Early Bird special which ended at 5:30.
The house wines at that time were less than $4.00 per glass. The menu had sufficient choices.
Warm, tasty bread with marinara sauce was quickly served. It was nice that more bread was offered without us asking!
The homemade house salad dressing was delicious !!!! Our waitress said it was a secret recipe.
The entrees were tasty and there was enough for us to take the rest home.
The delightful, friendly owner stopped at our table a few times .
The restaurant began to fill up around 6:30 so reservations would be good.

We all give Giovanni's high marks for both food and service and highly recommend it.
