Description: Giovanni Old World Restaurant *est 1961* a Berkeley institution. Orginal owner and his family happily came back after a twenty year absence to carry on this third generation tradition.
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great Italian food and service, for a reasonable price. The original owner sold this restaurant several years ago. When the new owners were not successful, the original owner bought it back and reopened, to the delight of many. As a matter of fact, he will still greet you as you arrive. My favorite is the Fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp....YUM!
