Establishment is up the road from Holiday Inn St Augustine North, about 10 minutes away, crossing over 95. It's located in a strip mall so go slow as you approach. The restaurant was recommended by the front desk at Holiday Inn and it did not disappoint. Excellent salads and pizza. We sat in the bar and the bartender handled all... More

We arrived during happy hour so we ordered a couple of specials, the chicken cacciatori and the cheese ravioli. Both were acceptable for the price but nothing special. The service was very good and friendly. I would be interesting to try some of the items from the regular menu.

I had the lunch special, a slice of pizza and a caesar salad. Nothing to write home about, my customer had the eggplant rollatini. He has had that before and likes it. The owner took care of us until his lunch server clocked in.

With mixed reviews, we were a bit unsure but it was near the hotel so we gave it a shot. We got there around 6. There were two big tables, one four-person table, and a few two-person tables available. The place seemed pretty slow but we were told it would be a 15-20 minute wait. The ambiance was standard, what... More

Started out with a Long Island iced tea, waiting time was about 20 min. The drink was done well very smooth (you know how those things will lie to you) Sat at the bar looking at the pizza ovens they made quite a variety of pies and they all looked great! Brown bottoms when they lifted the pies with a... More

The staff at our hotel recommended Cucina Giovanni. I read some of the reviews at Trip Advisor and though they weren't overwhelming, we thought we'd try it anyway. It looked very promising from the outside. What surprised me, though, when we went inside was the brightness of the restaurant. It is spacious but for 7:00 pm you'd think you'd find... More

We were asked to wait when we arrived even though there seemed to be several empty tables. We were finally asked if we'd like a larger table. I had stuffed manicotti and my husband had spaghetti with marinara sauce. They were both o.k. but not as flavorful as those we have had elsewhere. The couple with us had a supreme... More

Cucina Giovanni has top-notch Italian food served in a relaxed setting. Located in a strip mall, it’s not fancy, but we eat here every time we stop in St. Augustine on our way to south Florida. The staff is friendly, and the menu has choices for all palates. There are just enough wine selections that you don’t go crazy picking... More

We stopped for the Pizza, and are we glad we did. While the menu offers everything from Soup, Salad, Sandwiches, Calzone's, Subs, Beer, Wine, Cocktails, etc. They offer a personal size Pizza in several choices. We chose the 10" and added toppings. There are many topping choices available. I selected the Sausage and it was excellent. My wife had Peppers,... More

We went here based upon a recommendation made at our hotel. The food is decent but won't wow you. It is basically an Italian red sauce restaurant that serves the local population that does not appear to be very demanding.
