Every time we visit the Villages, this restaurant is a must stop. Although not a fancy Italian restaurant, the food is very good. The pizza is outstanding and the portions are extremely generous. The service is always good. It is a somewhat small place so a wait may be in order.

Giovanni's is a very busy Italian restaurant with limited space. We were fortunate to get a table following a limited wait. Three diners chose pizza and one selected manicotti. All 4 diners really enjoyed their selections. Side salads led the way with good dressings. The pizza's were thin crust and were well topped. The manicotti came with 3 filled pastas... More

Maybe because my husband is Italian and a great chef, but this place is just too bland. No taste, plus the service.......asked for two specific things and they failed on both. Not sure why this place is so busy, or so many people like it. I've had better sauce out of a jar, and I do not like jar sauce.... More

The baked spaghetti is one of my favorites. I enjoy coming here for lunch. Haven't been for dinner yet.

Giovanni's at lunch was packed. We waited ½ hour. Nothing fancy about the place. Staff was very friendly. I ordered the mussels in white wine garlic. It was ok compared to other restaurants I've dined at. Too much garlic. The bread was good. My friend had the eggplant. She raved about it. Lots of red sauce. Average. Not sure I'd... More

My wife and I ate here; we are snowbirds and always stop in here at least once. My wife got the seafood plate, I had the veal marsala. It was so good I almost licked the plate clean. The garlic bread will give you plenty of protection from vampires for several days! We LOVE this place. And judging from the... More

For a New Yorker, this is your basic excellent neighborhood Italian restaurant. Very good food, friendly service and a nice atmosphere. My wife had pasta fragiole, split a caprese salad with me and for her main course, she had a side dish that was big enough to be a main course. It was egg plant and was delicious. Most of... More
