This is one of my favorite resturants in the Soo. We eat here often and we have never had a bad meal. Prices are reasonable. Portions are good so I usually bring home leftovers.

We have a dinner party of 9, and one person was satisfied with their meal. A little disappointing. Ribs dry, gnocchi too peppery, canned mushrooms, chicken sauce seemed watered down. Will not return.

I've been to Giovanni's dozens of times throughout the years and its never a bad experience. There is a reason why they have been around for so long and we've seen countless of Italian restaurants come and go here in the Soo. Being an Italian restaurant and staying on top of the restaurant scene in a city predominately full of... More

Meal was mediocre. It seems like most food is processed and not made fresh. I had the chicken parm and it was average.

It's our company's tradition to host a retirement celebration - retiree chooses what and where. In this case it was dinner at Giovanni's - there were approximately 50 of us. Giovanni's provided 2 servers - who were excellent - they took a moment to introduce themselves and welcomed us. They were the right mix of friendly and professional. Having a... More

Starting with the tainted tap water and worthless wine menu, dinner just got worse. One of the worst meals I've ever paid for. There's only one way pasta gets so hot but they deny the use of a microwave. No way the 'chef' has any training in Italian cooking and no way this wine menu was created by someone who... More

This is a very busy restaurant so make sure you take the time to make a reservation. We decided at the last minute to drop by; it was full but the girl managed to find us a place at a small table near the bar; The table was small but we were happy to have been able to find a... More

Feb.10/2017 went for supper total of eight people. The weather itself was a miserable Canadian winter day. Normally on a Friday Giovanni's is very busy. This night there were many empty tables as I believe that a lot of reservations had cancelled. Giovanni's has recently been renovated and is in my opinion very warm, cozy and attractive. Love the build... More
