“Can never get enough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

What can I say, Giovanni's is my absolute favorite Italian restaurant in the area. The food is amazing, the branzino was cooked to perfection. And the marinara sauce was excellent. The service is was pleasantly fast and friendly. I would highly recommend Giovanni's to anyone looking for tasty home made Italian food.

“Wow! Best night out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Its a little hard to find but once you get there you are welcomed by the family owned and operated authentic italian atmosphere. Our server Joanne has got to he the best service provider in the state. The food was cooked to perfection the value was unbelievable. I will be eating here at least once a week for dinner and a few times a week for lunch they also have amazing pizza. You would be foolish to eat italian food any where else. The owner/ chef giovanni even makes table visits

“Italian food for anyone who doesnt know Italian food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The red sauce has no flavor-no garlic basil oregano. The pasta, though ordered al dente was mushy-a huge portion of something inedible. The garlic knots were burnt. The salad is iceburg lettuce-extremely boring. They don't have fresh grated cheese-only jarred.

Please don't eat here if you truly love Italian food.

“Good Food, Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Giovanni's is hidden away in the corner of a strip mall, with a view of Home Depot. However, it was all delightfully uphill from there. Nothing fancy here, and the menu was broad enough with Italian standby's. I had the Veal Marsala. The sauce was a bit watery, but the flavors were good. Entree's (except pasta items) come with a choice of salad or sides. My wife shared the fish special, and thought it was excellent. In the slow season, Giovanni's offers two glasses of house wine for the price of one. Our waiter was quite expert re the menu items, and very attentive. Our food also arrived quickly, despite a rather full house.

Our party of six had five entree's, no appetizers, nor desserts. We took advantage of the wine twofers, and our bill, pre tip was $130, or only a bit over $43 per couple. That struck me as a good deal for a good meal.
