Locally owned Italian menu eatery. Food is good, and prices are fair. Has been around a while, which is the mark of an eatery that has become established and has a regular local clientale.

When this restaurant opened it had good service and descent food,now some 4 years on the food tastes cheap the service is TERRIBLE. We chose to got to Giuseppe's. in Kingsport for Valentines Day .The service is always good the food tastes homemade not from a freezer or can and the staff actually cares about the service and food. We will not be spending our money here any more.Giuseppe's. is the same price with much better food.

Me and my friend went here to lunch and we wait to be seated for about 10 minutes then we got to our table and the server came up to get our order and the store phone started ringing so she answered it well instead of going off to the side to talk she proceeded to stay at the table so we could hear her entire conversation with her boss about going to food city and buying candles and a fake flowers, she told her boss she was at a table but he didn't seem to care because she started telling him which employees were out back taking a smoke break. She was on the phone for about 15 minutes. It made us very uncomfortable and it was unprofessional. I won't be back!

My husband and I ate here today, we had a gift certificate and were excited to try it for the first time, and the waitress we had was very sweet and the food was okay, but we will never go back because when we went to pay the owner proceeded to add an 18% charge to the bill and at first we thought that they had added the grautity like it says they could do on the certificate (which would have been fine) but when we asked him if that was what the charge was for he said no we would have to tip her seperately and that was a fee for "corporate" then when we questioned it he continued to say that he wasnt making any money from the certificates so the have to charge the fee!!! Outragous! And his attitude about it was well Im sorry you dont like it but thats how it is so you will have to deal with it. We will not be back to support this business.

Traveling thru TN we stopped in Blountville for an event and there weren't alot of dinner options. But found Giovanni's thru tripadvisor and we were pleasantly surprised. The place WAS clean and friendly. I had a big salad with all fresh delicious ingredients and my husband had a tasty calzone he was very happy with. The small was a very ample portion. I had doubts because there were only 2 reviews but we'll definitely stop here again next time thru town.
