What a wonderful surprise! We decided to have a light supper of tapas at Giovanni's: a large antipasto platter and their special that night: strip loin steak in a tumble of veggies and a wonderful sauce. Both were beautifully presented and made a good meal...More

I have eaten at Giovanni's on five different occasions (lunches and dinner with more still to come). The restaurant itself is in a small strip mall and there is nothing on the exterior to suggest the culinary experience inside will be superb. The bland, unimposing...More

I had lunch here with a friend, and we both came away impressed. It was quiet with fewer than half the table occupied, so our server had lots of time to attend to us. I had canelloni stuffed with shrimp and chorizo sausage and covered...More
