Small quaint restaurant with very friendly helpful staff. I had pasta with meat sauce and a salad for lunch. The service was quick. Food was fresh but the sauce had a strange after taste. The garlic bread was a roll cut in half with garlic butter spread. Not sure i would go back unless i ordered something else.

Came for lunch after having hear good things about the place. Wife had the chicken Parmesan sandwich and reported the meat was very rubbery. The lasagna was plain not good. Both dishes were obviously reheated, unfortunately not thoroughly so. The edges were hot, the center lukewarm at best. The constant 'bing" that must have come from a microwave or another... More

This place rocks! Never have I been disappointed. The staff is attentive and fast. The food is made to order. But, it's well worth the wait. The wines are top notch. The bruschetta Di Parma is to die for. Yum!

Giovanni's is the best Italian by a long shot. If you are in a hurry this might not be the best idea for you because everything is made from scratch, which is well worth the wait. The staff is extremely friendly and the owner is there to make sure everyone is happy and full. I highly recommend this place if... More

Decent food. Decent service. Owner had no idea we were here, despite us being the only customers. He sat on his phone. Overall I wouldn't come back

I'm so glad we found Giovanni's...it's the best, most authentic Italian food in our area. Everything we've tried on the menu is worth repeating and even my children in their teens love it. Small and tucked away in a lonely area of a busy thoroughfare, you'll be glad you search it out and go. Wine selection is limited, but the... More

My son and I went to the restaurant while in town for a soccer tournament. When we arrived at the restaurant, there were two other families from our team who had already been seated and they invited us to join them. The owner at first was not inclined to move another table to the group as their reservation was for... More

As my wife and I were both looking forward to a nice and relaxing dinner, I went to the restaurant’s website to make a reservation. Before departing, I called to confirm the reservation and was addressed by the owner who told me that they were not doing any reservation. When reminded of the fact that his website had such feature,... More

So glad we found Giovanni's! The food is authentic tasting (and everything our family has tried has been great). The service is personal and friendly too. The exterior appearance doesn't do justice to the great experience inside. The whole family loves it.
