We wanted to eat somewhere unique on this trip but there wasn't many choices on a Sunday night. We lucked out finding this place. The food was wonderful. Some of the best Italian food we ever had. Good prices also!

The bruschetta appetizer was the best I have ever eaten. It was so light and flavor I thought I died and went to heaven. Everything was fresh, well prepared and authentically Italian. I highly recommend.

A beautiful restaurant with lovely ambience; I've visited this restaurant several times and the food and service have been consistently outstanding. Some of its menu options even inspired a few additions to our home kitchen. Giovanni's is a wonderful venue for a couple's date night.
