Loved the porch. It was comfortable warm and spacious. Food was surprisingly fresh & tasty. Even leftover lasagna was better the next day. We didn't have reservations for a Saturday night but were accommodated and had a great table next to the heater. I've recommended to several people. Not so crowded. Nice to get out of Destin for a wonderful... More

My husband had the spaghetti and meatsauce plus meatballs. We've been in Florida since January 15 and it was the best meal he has had! We leave March 15 or he would go back several times! I was disappointed with the lasagna; all cheese! It was very runny and not much meat or even lasagna noodles! Don't recommend. I should... More

Went there for New Years Eve special they had. You had to make reservations. They ran out of some of the food. The waitress we had was never around. The group was there for about 5 hours and she probably came to the table no more than 5 times the whole night and I didn't think the food was that... More

Thank you for your review and we're so sorry your waitress wasn't more attentive. We're not sure how to respond to the Cafe Italia comment because all we did was change our name to Giovanni's - the food, owners, chef and staff are all the same. But we hope to see you back again sometime soon to try our food... More

Met friends here for dinner. Wonderful service and dinner was absolutely amazing. Sat out on their new deck even though it was chilly out, we were very comfortable. Had a great view of the sound.

This place had been Bella Italia. As that restaurant it had outdated and kitschy decor, mediocre food and pleasant service. It also had an unusual and unpleasant odor. Now, as Giovanni's, this wonderfully situated location has VERY nice interior design, tasteful decor and atmosphere, and the food and service has also improved. Can't wait to visit here when it gets... More

We swore the last time we were here when the place was Bella Italia that we would never go back. The restaurant turned over some time ago and became Giovanni's. So - we gave it another try. We were glad we did. The new owners have vastly updated the inside of the place. It is open, clean, nice seating, added... More

Three years ago this place was great. It was small/ simple and was owned by a real Italian lady. She sold it to another person (from Texas) who turned it basically into an American Italian restaurant, jacked the prices up, turned it into a bar and somewhat of a lounge/ elderly club. I have been twice in the last year... More
