I have planned many dinners here for executives. So when my birthday celebration came around and we were seeing a show at The Fox Theater in Detroit, I couldn't wait to start the evening with dinner at Giovanni's. We started with the Calamari. Very lightly breaded with a delicate sauce. The calamari was tender and almost "fluffy". Absolutely delicious. Then I had the 16 layer lasagna. The pasta is all homemade. It was very thin sheets of pasta layered with the meat sauce and cheese. It was rich and divine. My husband had the boursin cheese and sundried tomato stuffed ravioli topped with jumbo lump crab and a champagne cream sauce, and our friends had cannelloni and cappelletti. Everybody was thrilled with their entrees. No matter how full we were, we couldn't pass up the dessert tray...and besides, it was my birthday. Tiramisu, Lemon Tart, Sanders Hot Fudge Cream Puff and a Cannoli were all quickly devoured. Of course we enjoyed the entire meal with fine wine and great conversation. The owner came to wish me a happy birthday and thank us for our patronage. She was delightful. The interior of the restaurant was warm and inviting - although the approach to the restaurant is not. It is totally worth the drive and the valets/security take care of your car while you are enjoying the experience. I can't wait to go back and I won't wait for my next birthday to do it.
