OK pretty much describes this place. It wasn't great or terrible. Grinder was decent and seafood alfredo was OK.

It took an eternity to receive what we ordered. When it finally arrived, my calzone was still raw and someone else at the table received his pastas in a watery Alfredo sauce. They exchanged our plates, so by the time it arrived, everyone else was done eating. They served two bland pieces of cake on the house...So expensive for what it is! I would never go back there.

Read reviews which led me to believe this would be a decent place for dinner... They overrated it for sure. The pizza was mediocre, consisting of warmed up cheese, raw veggies - crust was the best part. I personally would've liked it cooked longer to darken the cheese some as it was just barely melted. Probably premade and just add toppings.

The best part of dinner was the waitstaff. Our server was extremely friendly, visiting from Europe for the summer. I have to say that she made up for the disappointing dinner. I'd probably rate 1-2 stars if not for her.

The prices were alright, but there is an 18% auto-gratuity which I personally dislike even though I usually tip 25% or more.

A group of us were in VB for a soccer tournament and needed pasta before a match. We picked Giovanni's and were not disappointed. Very good food at reasonable prices.
