Today four friends and I had a most delicious lunch at Giovanni's. We ordered the lunch special (it changes daily) for under $10.00 before tax and tip. Served on our crisp white tablecloths, today's special included a soup, a salad and a main dish. Today's main dish (Tuesday) was a delicious and very generous serving of ground beef kabab with saffron rice seasoned perfectly. Everyone agreed that we would return to sample every day's special.
I would recommend lunch at this restaurant to friends and business associates.

There appears to be a full bar, but we did not order alcoholic drinks at our lunch.
In addition to the Mediterranean dishes, there are also Italian items on one side of the menu.

This place is definitely 5 stars! Great place to dine in terms of fresh & delicious both Mediterranean and Italian meals. Very kind, caring, and professional staff. Great ambiance whether you want to have a family dining experience or a group meeting or any other kind of gathering.

So, the name is confusing, but the food isn't. Had great calamari thinking we would go Italian. It was great. Then noticed the Mediterranean menu on the other side. Wow, great stuff. Stuffed ground beef with the barberry rice was great. Top it off with great ice cream

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.
