My husband & I had lunch here yesterday. I assumed there'd be sandwiches, soups, good pizza (it's an Italian restaurant), a decent lunch menu. I was wrong. The special was a cold cut sandwich on focaccia with a side salad, which I ordered. My husband ordered a small Hawaiian pizza. He knew before the first bite that he wasn't going... More

Our first visit to Giovanni's and very far from our last. The food was fantastic - very tasty and healthy. I had the Veal Marsala and my husband the Veal Parm. The ambiance was wonderful and the waitress friendly and efficient. Looking forward to our next visit.

We have eaten here a few times now and the food is always delicious. Quiet and relaxing atmosphere with excellent service. Great selection of wines and menu items are scrumptious and well priced. We have enjoyed lunches and evening meals here.
