Hidden under an Italian cuisine and name, I highly recommend going here for the Persian food! Try the eggplant/tomato/beef stew Badejaman or the beef shiskabob (Barg) and especially the Fesenjan (a barberry think cranberry infused chicken stew). Add these dishes to a yummy butter rice or their specialties cherry butter rice or barberry rice. Round it out with dolmas or a fresh cucumber/tomato/onion salad. Clear your palate with a cold, clean smooth rice pudding with pistachios.
Service is great and fast, food was fabulous, ambiance was elegant and clean, but no apparent dress code.
The owner and servers were gracious and friendly, and very attentive.
Highly recommended!!!!!

36 ( 18 couples) of us celebrated Valentine here. Heme, the owner treated us royally. He and Adam, our server made sure we had a great time. The food was delicious and plentiful. The wine flowed throughout the night. The music and belly dancing were the highlights. Thanks.

Have eaten here four times since last year in october. All four repeat visits were experience with the same feeling. Superb food and great service in this well established older restaurant. Easy parking too. They definately know how to prepare italian food well.

The food is hit or miss. The staff can be rude. and the place smells like poop around the bathroom. Im sure the Health Department needs to pay them a visit.

Words cannot express how utterly horrible my experience at Giovanni's was. I took my wife and two sons in hopes of trying something "new". Needless to say, I was left with an experience I will never forget. From the disgruntled, rude employees and management to the completely sub-par palate of "beef" and rice they presented us with, rest assured, save yourself the trouble and take your hard earned money to a respectable establishment.
