This was my first time to Giovanni's, and I was not disappointed. It was for a business dinner, and everyone could not say enough good things. The building in which it is located is not very appealing, but don't let that dissuade you.
The wine list was fabulous, with everything from a reasonably priced wines to special occasion selections. The presentation of the salads and entrees was nice - and the flavors divine. I had the organic mixed greens salad, which was delicious. I also had the halibut, the sauce for which was a bit heavy on the horseradish, but otherwise perfectly cooked and flavorful. A couple of the other diners had pasta dishes, and they were also very good from their reports. Even the bread and butter were delicious. Desserts were also very good (I had tiramisu; lots of gelato enjoyed by everyone else), and enough to share.
Service was prompt without being intrusive. I would definitely go back when in the Cleveland area, for business or pleasure.
