We Loved it, and the entertainer made it all the better! Service was great. The restaurant is very nice and our pizza was delicious. Portions are very large. Music in the evening was pleasant.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

We are local and check out the new places. The food was great. We went on a Friday and they had live music. It was nice to see the owner and a guest getting up to sing. It was nice to see what could be done to an old pizza hut.

“Great find in Pompano Beach area!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Giovanni's has only been open for 4 months, but it won't take long before people will be lining up at the door. The food is delicious, home-made and reasonably priced. We had the Veal Parm which was terrific! Came with a fresh salad, and hot bread. Dessert was a wonderful Sicilian cheesecake (I had the lemon which was yummy!). Excellent service too. Adrianna was our waitress (daughter of owner) - her brother is the chef (very talented!) and her father, the owner, checked to make sure all was well. We're just visiting the area, but will be back next year for sure!! There was also music - not too loud, just enough to add to the ambiance.
