This restaurant has been in the same location for decades and is a go-to place for wonderful Italian food. If you go on a Saturday night, they have a small band that plays music from the 50's. They cater to all ages, but you'll find a great group of elderly people there all dressed up to dance the night away... More

We stayed overnight in Edgewood and were looking for a place for dinner, and our Internet search brought us here. We were not disappointed. The service was very good, as was the food. My husband had the stuffed eggplant and I had the manicotti, both came with a generous salad. The portions were very substantial and we were able to... More

Nice place but preferably for old people. When I visited for dinner on the suggestion of my hotel's front desk staff, it was full of old couples dancing and enjoying the night. The best part is that the food was good!!

The food is not very good for the price. The ambience is poor and caters to an older crowd. The bartenders are seasoned and have the attitude that you are there for their convenience. They are short and condescending with their answers. They do not include alcohol with their Restaurant.com certificate and when asked they act like everyone should know... More

So fun. Old school Italian food. Tons of choices and good service. Nothing trendy here, but that's what makes it great. Live music and dancing when we were there.

Restaurant was recommended by the desk person at an area motel where we were staying but double checked with TA to confirm. The minute you walk in its apparent you are in, what I refer to as a "traditional" Italian restaurant, it has the right "feel". We were seated immediately and greeted by a very pleasant server (Heather) who provided... More

I have visited Giovanni's restaurant for decades and it is still one of the best restaurants in Harford County - certainly in the Edgewood area! They have music on Friday and Saturday evenings which is nice in these days

We fell in love with this place which seemed like it belonged in the 1950's or 60's. Nothing pretentious just excellent food and phenomenal service. Our waiter was very informative and I felt he genuinely wanted us to have the best dining experience possible. I felt the food was very reasonably priced and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious1

We have been to Giovanni's several times, never dissapointted. We always have very good food and service. Try the drunken clams, mmmm. Old school, could use an update, but pleasant. We have had seafood, beef and pasta; all good. Family and older crowd.
