Well not really everybody but go there more than once and Giovanna probably will. Plus the food is excellent, the service is outstanding and the prices are reasonable. Hignly recommend the Tilapia and the salad with the house dressing, but everything I have ever had here was way better then average.

When we were there, it was standard flourescent lighting, an owner who was trying too hard, and okay food. I will say this: the cannoli are hand stuffed with ricotta and are some of the best I've had outside the Italian Market in Philadelphia.

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and went in search of it while we were at Six Flags. It is about 11 miles from the park on the East West Connector, but it is worth the drive not only because there isn't much around Six Flags itself. It is easier to find due to the wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man that says Giovanni's. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and they weren't busy..
We were met by the owner, who is a native Italian. He is a personable and friendly man, who according to the walls has a large amount of loyal clientele.
We ordered the fried ravioli, tortellini with the "pink sauce" which was a marinara/alfredo mix, chicken fettuccine Alfredo and the chicken picatta.
The fried ravioli came out with marinara that was excellent. It was on a bed of spinach leaves and the leaves were also tasty in the sauce. The ravioli had a dense ricotta based filling that was excellent.
Salads were very good with not only lettuce but spinach leaves. Much better than most other places that only use lettuce.
Entrees were good, I had lots of capers in my picatta with a nice cream sauce over the angel hair and a large piece of chicken. The chicken was fully cooked and tender.
Tortellini was hot and they were filled with cheese. These are the multi colored tortellini as well. Entrees came with garlic bread, it would have been nice to have a olive oil pesto dip for that.
The chicken alfredo was delicious, and there was enough to take back to the hotel and have later.
We also ordered gelato (Strawberry and Chocolate) and according to my daughter, it was just like the actual gelato she got in Italy, and delicious!!
Entrees range from $9 to $17 for the most part. Gelato was $5.50. Prices were reasonable even though the DD and BFF are eating me out of house and home.

Here you get served by the owner and enjoy fresh and tasty Italian entrees. The sauces are great and there are new special dishes often. We have enjoyed our meals on every visit, and we go regularly. I love the lasagne. The cheesecake is fabulous - better than Cheescake Factory's regular.
