My husband and I just finished a delicious dinner, our waitress Veronica was absolutely fantastic. My husband and I had the salmon, it was yummy, we also had the baked apple with ice cream, which was so tasty. A very nice place for a meal.

went for a late lunch. had a pasta dish, calamari and a fish burger with fries. too much salt on the calamari, fries and pasta . i guess because it caters to a senior population?

We were out to Giovannis for dinner and were very pleased with the results. Both of us had the same dish. Penne with spicy sausage - it was spicy and may be too much for some, but we thought it was delicious. Service was good and price was very reasonable for wine and dessert all totalled.

We keep doing back to enjoy the fine Italian dining, in a very comfortable location. Enjoy Italian cuisine in a west coast location.

We stopped here for dinner on the way to Nanaimo. We had a great waitress who was greatly embarrassed by the fact that the cook served me a different dish from what I ordered and refused to serve the menu item I had ordered. When I asked the waitress to check with the kitchen she came back with the message... More

We sat in the lounge to have a bite to eat. I had linguine pescatore which I have to say was amazing. Never had it before and now will definitely have again. My partner had the gorgonzola salad with spicy chicken breast. That was great too. Great atmosphere. Nice small cozy room

Visited here based on other reviews and was very pleased with our dinners. I started with an amazing beet salad with goat cheese, greens and roasted sunflower seeds. Wow. Incredible. I had the salmon which was pretty good. My wife had the mussels which were salty and a Caesar salad which had too much garlic. A couple at another table... More

We have not been to Giovanni's for several years due to a previous poor experience. We decided to return tonight and were very impressed. Our server, Erin, was upbeat and provided excellent service. On our last visit, the tables were crowded together and we were pleased to find that the tables are now arranged in such a way that privacy... More
