My wife and I found Giovanni's about six month after moving to Maryland and we love it. It is our favorite restaurant within 30 minutes of our house. The atmosphere while worn is wonderful and string out of the 60’s. A place you would expect to see the Rat Pack. By the way, they have music on Friday and you... More

The nicest part of our meal was the waitress, extremely efficient and professional. I just wanted something light, the house salad and calamari while my husband got one of the specials. The calamari was not fresh but tasted like a frozen TV dinner They tried to add flavor by adding old spice which did not work. Salad was good but... More

Restaurant opened in 1980 and still under family ownership. My guess is that it looks much like it did in 1980. That said, the food is excellent and the service is great with very friendly staff. We went based on TA reviews and we're not disappointed. Prices are a little high but well worth it. If you are not a... More

Always a great dinner at GIOVANNI's in Edgewood. We switched up tonight and did non-Italian entrees. My partner did the NY STRIP STEAK & I did the Filet Mignon & Crab Cake. The NY STRIP STEAK actually out-flavored the filet mignon. Both were excellent cuts of beef. My crab cake was delicious in taste and did not suffer from the... More

Orioles Chaplain (Father Bauer) decided we should have dinner at Giovanni's. They had some lobster bisque soup with crab meat that got us started and we then had their Rockfish special with a bed of spinach done Italian style. Met a MSGR from Syracuse and the Prince of Peace priest so we had a full table of priests for the... More

My son and I were celebrating Mother's Day a little late. Dinner here was superb! AJ, our server, was the best! Very attentive, but not overly. Checked back several times. Salads excellent; entrees more than ample (took home doggie bags). Good wine selection.

Took my "adoptive mom," Pat (my real Mom's last best friend) and her husband Jake to Mother's Day dinner. It did not disappoint; it was outstanding! Pat had the daily special, rockfish Italian-style on a bed of rice; Jake had one generously-sized crab cake, and I went for the seafood Alfredo, on fettucine. Our waiter was attentive, and friendly but... More
