I am from the Region. I have gone to Giovanni's for over 20 years.
My wife went there with another couple.
The people are still very nice, but don't seem to be in a hurry.
The service was very slow and the food arrived Luke warm. We were running late for a movie (which we told them), so we ate the Luke warm food quickly to get to our movie.
The food was was VERY disappointing. We made the mistake of ordering the Chilean Sea Bass - we should have stuck with pasta I was embarrassed for them when they placed the $ 27 dollar plate of sea bass in front of me - very sad.
Like I said, I am from the Region. I will go back to Giovanni's - but stick with the pasta.
