Nice Italian restaurant in Mountain View. Although interior is a little bit dark and depressing, food is good. Menu offers several meat, pasta, fish and vegetarian dishes. Prices are ok compared with other places in the area. Very good and fast service.

We had a date night at Don Giovanni's. The food was very appealing, with good flavor. A medium size, very nicely decorated restaurant. A nice place to go with family and friends.
