Both my husband and I said it tasted like cardboard! It was aweful. We threw it in the trash and went... More

A trip to Giovanni's is always enjoyed by our family. They serve very good and authentic Italian food. It's a nice, casual, family-friendly place that isn't fancy but knocks out some very good Italian food. It can get busy and a bit crowded, but the staff does their best to overcome those challenges and keep everyone happy. The portions are... More

We recently had my nephew's graduation dinner here and as always it was a pleasant experience. The servers are personable and attentive. The good is fresh and delicious with large portions. Our favorites are the shrimp Alfredo and stuffed pizza.

We have been ordering from Giovanni's for more than 15 years. While we have always had issues with long lead times and the occasional botched order, it was worth it in the end. Not so much now. The quality does not seem as high. Also, the people taking the orders often do not seem to be attentive.

We were a party of 8 looking for a restaurant to please everyone. We came across Giovanni's on Trip Advisor and called ahead. They told us to come right over and we arrived and were seated immediately. The Caesar salad was delicious as were the chicken parm and pastas. Each entree came with a salad and all items were very... More

Remember those rubbery meatballs you fear at Italian restaurants? This place has them!! When I was new in Oviedo, people had told me this was one of the two favorite Italian restaurants. I find this very hard to believe given the low quality food.

As ex-NY City people we appreciate great Italian, not just good, but great. This is why we give Giovanni's a 4 Star rating. Service is always friendly and good. We have at least two in the area and both are equally good. Be careful to order the pasta al-dente as on busy nights, it could come a little limp. The... More
