We recently dined at Giovanni's Main Street Kitchen in Wauchula while staying at a nearby B&B. The Innkeeper had mentioned it was good (she gave us a few good recommendations). We got there early - around 6 pm and by the time we left, nearly all of the tables were full. Given the size of the town and that most people were locals, I thought that was a good testiment to the meal we had.

The menu states that food is cooked to order and to please be patient. We noticed we did have a slightly longer than your normal "chain" restaurant wait, but it was worth it--much better than 99% of the chains out there. The food was very good and the portions were a comfortable size - we didn't feel stuffed, nor did we leave hungry.

We went to this restaurant because of a Living Social. We thought it would be a dump because of the outside; however, the food was out of this world. My husband's family comes from Italy and he said this was food that his mom would make. From appetizers to entrees to desserts, everything was great. We would definitely come back!

We travel Hwy 27 frequently and finally found a great lunch/dinner place in Wauchula. There are few quality places to eat for miles in any direction and this is the only one we have found so far. Great food with very reasonable prices. Everything is fresh, made to order. The small salad bar is small but quite tasty and so are the soups. The salad dressing on the salad bar is stuffed with cloves of garlic, light oil, onions and herbs that make you want to order more bread just to dip it in.The place is run by a couple and he is Italian and she is Cuban, sounds odd having that type of food but it works. One time we got both an Italian entre and a side of black beans and rice. Sounds odd but both were great and very cheap. We now travel way out of our way if we are within 50 miles of Wauchula just to eat here.
