“Good food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

The ravioli was very good and had a flavorful meat sauce. My coworker had the chicken parm and said it was excellent. The staff was pleasant and helpful and kept the water glasses full.

“Very Good Food, Good Value”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Ristorante Don Giovanni has very good food, and is a good value. Nice atmosphere. Attentive, staff. Reasonable prices. We had the Carpaccio and Bruschetta appetizers – none left. Veal and chicken dishes very well prepared and well-sauced (not to much or too little; not over or under concentrated). Desserts (bread pudding and crème brulee) were excellent (brulee had a hint of orange). Objective criticism – lemon chicken sauce would benefit from just a bit more lemon, and my dining companions reported that the Bruschetta just wasn’t quite as good as it was on previous visits.

“Not so good eggplant parmesan”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Should have been fantastic but the food was okay. The prices on the wine was totally reasonable though. Excellent service!

“Upscale feel, great for a business dinner, special date or meet-the-parents!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Feels on the pricey side but is actually not too bad (mid to high teens to twenties per dish), and the food is definitely good. If your work offers the Passport discount program, this restaurant is a member. Service is good as well. Great for a business dinner or for a special occasion :)

“Excellent Experience !”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Can't say enough about the gracious service that our party of 18 received at Don Giovannis last month. We needed to make a reservation for a large party and were from out of town with no
real knowledge of Mountain View restaurants. The food was yummy, the price was right and the service along with atmosphere did not disappoint!
