“Out of touch...”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

The food is awesome and the service is friendly, but the prices are way to expensive.

the restaurant was very busy so maybe its just me.

I have been going there for years now and the quality seems to be slowly slipping downhill. maybe after 20+ years of business the owners are ready to move on to other things and are losing touch with today's environment. Or they are just trying to scrimp and save too much on their ingredients to make a extra buck...

If you like Italian, this is the best place in Sault Ste.Marie that serves excellent Italian cuisine. Great for family gatherings ... awesome staff and excellent customer service.

“Still the best affordable Italian food in Sault Ste. Marie”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We came back to the Soo for Christmas this year and booked a dinner with family and friends at Giovanni's.

Let me preface it by saying that Giovanni's makes the best Linguine Puttanesca I've ever had anywhere. I've had it many times over the years so when we came, I already knew what I was going to order before we got there.

My wife and kids ordered off the menu. There is a lot of variety on the menu and everyone got something that they were satisfied with. My wife had Chicken Piccada & the kids had Lasagna, Chicken Tetrazini and Ravioli.

The food was affordability priced, in great quantity and quality with a reasonable wine list.

There's a reason that my family has been going here for 20+ years and that you still need a reservation to get in on any given weekend.

If you're in Sault Ste. Marie, you should generally eat Italian food, and Giovanni's presents the best value for money in the area. If this was in Burlington or Oakville they would charge a much higher price and be the talk of the town.
