“This restaurant is a PLEASER!!!!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

My daughter and I were in NYC for clothing market and found Don Giovanni Italian restaurant from the excellent reviews on trip advisor. Well , if a restaurant can satisfy my daughter's appetite, they have really accomplished the impossible. I chose this restaurant. Because they offered penne arrabiata ( her favorite) and the first bite she said this was the most delicious penne she had EVER has and I had lasagna and it as delicious as well and potions are as stated, most generous and you could easily share. We were greeted promptly and the waitress was most attentive. This is an older family restaurant and decor is very nostalgic. a great place for real fresh Italian entrees. No disappointment and a wonderful evening

“Perfect Pasta”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Visited New York City in August 2012. Wandering back to our hotel we stumbled upon Don Giovanni's on 10th Avenue about 6.00pm. The place was wonderful. The staff were welcoming and the menu varied. My trans American mission to discover a real Italian restaurant was over before it had begun with this small but splendidly decorated restaurant. I had the meatballs and spaghetti, my wife had the chicken soup ( he best she'd ever tasted) and our two boys had freshly made pizza. The food tasted wonderful and the service was great. Hope we can get back there sometime soon. A real treat.

“Great food at good value”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The portions were typically American - massive, and they were all delicious and great value. Wine was reasonably priced for New York and overall it was a lovely meal with great service.

“Extremely enjoyable!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Such a cozy atmosphere, Don Giovanni's is a must next time you're in the area. A group of friends (12+) headed to the restaurant after an evening performance on Broadway and the staff greeted us warmly and made sure everyone had a seat and served us promptly. The food was great - high quality, hot, fresh, delicious! Generous portions and reasonably priced. Would definitely return next time I'm in the area.

“Delicious and Cosy”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We stumbled upon this place and were presently surprised. There is an interesting history so it is worth looking at the walls! It was very crowded and happening in a good way and there was a positive atmosphere. The servers were nice but did seem a little stressed, but this is probably because it was Dec 30th!
Rod ordered a lasagne- it was huge and just delicious.
I ordered an oil based sauce and I wish I'd ordered something creamy or tomato based... but it was still lovely.
