We have been coming here for years and were disapointed that on our recent visit it was closed .Emilio and his team served us some very enjoyable meals but it seems they have relocated .What a shame

Nice place to go with friends. Not hurried. Service is great.I like their ravioli. I'm not an adventurer and I don't like lobster in my ravioli...cheese for me...and they have it.

We were visiting friends in Longboat and they took us to this out of the way place down Gulf of Mexico drive. The other 6 were residents and they were all pleasantly surprised! The specials were excellent as was the Veal Marsala from the menu....More

We eat here on a regular basis. We especially enjoy the seafood specials every week. Service has always been good and the staff is friendly. Nice wine list. We love the garlic bread.

Don Giovanni's is our favorite place on Longboat Key to eat. The food is great and served with a smile.

We pulled in here this evening for a family dinner at 5 pm. The door was open and the lights were on. Everything was set out on the tables, but it was like stumbling upon the Mary Celeste. It was completely empty. Not a soul...More

First visit; cozy quiet atomosphere. You can tell off-season has arrived. Excellent veal marsala. Nice extensive Italian menu.

The lobster shrimp pasta was excellent. Enjoyed every bite. I was so full that I couldn't enjoy my favorite dessert.... Lemmonicello cake. So I took it to go. Delicious. Enjoyed over two evenings. Very generous slice.

The restaurant does not publish its menu on the website. It is extensive and meals are delicious and freshly made. The sauces are extra special!
