Food was very good, but we will remember this restaurant for the superb service of a waitress who went to great lengths to make dinner pleasurable for 4 tired adults, an infant and a 2-year old. She anticipated things that would be helpful and brought them without asking. The little ones were entertained and happy -- and so were the... More

We entered the store front restaurant expecting a ho drum experience and came away highly impressed. We noticed ample seating for over 80 people with plenty of space between the 14 booths and 9 tables. We were surprised to find four attentive wait staff for a 4:30 p.m. early dinner. To start our meal, we ordered their terrific garlic knots... More

We used grubhub.com to deliver our meal from Giovanni's. Oh, the food was delicious, and still HOT! It was all packaged very well, no spillage or leaking. They followed all of our special directions (ie:salad dressing on the side). We shared a large spinach salad, which was fresh and plentiful. The pasta was perfect, al-dente and the meat was tender,... More

The service was very good. We ordered the lunch stuffed pizza slice and salad combo. The price was reasonable. The salad was OK, dressing very good. The stuffed pizza slice was OK but the bread they brought on the side was better than the pizza.

I gave them an extra point for friendly service. We ordered a large takeout Margherita pizza. They forgot the basil which the young lady noticed and went to get us some. For a very large pizza, she put on maybe a tablespoon of chopped basil. There were a few daubs of mozzarella and the tomato sauce was a little too... More

Giovanni's is the place to go when you want Italian close by with good service and good food. Don't bother with the complimentary garlic bread, instead, splurge for the garlic knots. The pizza is good or try the chicken parmigiana. My husband loves the house dressing. Save room for a cannoli!

Glad I finally stopped into this restaurant I had passed numerous times previously. We were there for a later lunch than usual so it wasn't very busy. We had Fried Calamari for starters. Cooked perfectly, perhaps because it was almost all similar in size, rather large compared to my experiences with a 'seafood' chain, so no rubbery pieces. I prefer... More

This was my 5th visit to this location. Every time the meals were prepared properly, service was good, and left happy. Not like some of the other Giovani locations. The manager here appears to care about customer satisfaction. Love the salad dressing and hot garlic breadsticks

Giovanni's is a small local Italian restaurant with a very friendly staff. Decor is dated. Floors are tile with lots of grease on them. Ordered a sangria- just Gallo wine with sugar and an orange slice. Pasta was penne with canned tomato sauce and two spongy flavorless meatballs. Salad was romaine, two old cucumber slices, two grape tomatoes and gelatinous... More
