Our party of 3 ordered 2 of the specials, a sea bass dish and a penne ala vodka entree, along with a vegetable pasta dish. The penne flavor was really off the mark. I could tell if they poured vodka in the sauce just prior to serving it or if they had put sherry in the mix. Either way it... More

My wife and I LOVE this place because the wait staff is mature and understands they are there to serve and not be served. Excellent food. I can't say enough about this place. It is NOT expensive either. Two can eat for under $20 and not come away hungry.

We ordered the spaghetti with meat sauce and a Hawaiian Pizza. It took a bit over an hour to get the food delivered, but it was worth the wait overall. The spaghetti was plentiful and the meat sauce was plentiful and flavorful as well. The salads were fresh and the dressing tasted home made. The Hawaiian Pizza was good as... More

My favorite item on the menu is the garlic knots. Service is good, salads and pasta entrees are good. Always a line on the weekends.

My go to place for Italian Food. Great Atmosphere and Great Food. I ordered the Chicken and Veggies with a side of pasta. Always order a side of Alfredo with the bread. Their house dressing is the best around.

When we want a close to home restaurant, our go to place is always an easy choice-Giovanni's! Great food. Great atmosphere and wonderful, attentive service. Tim always knows what we like and his service is second to none.

Food reeks of Garlic. They overdo it with the garlic, but if you like garlic then you're in the right place

I LOVE this place.... So relaxing for a night after work. I request them to make my pizzas thin and crusty. Salads and the house dressing is to die for. We had an excellent server today! His name is Ahmed. Wonderful! He is so cute. Very polite and entertaining. Nice to see happy people at work! I have been in... More

Visiting from Jacksonville, took my in-laws to lunch on recommendation of a friend. Nice restaurant, VERY nice people and seated at once. The waiter was outstanding, made our meal a real treat. The food arrived in a timely fashion; brother-in-law had soup and salad...he raved about both. Sister in law had Fettuccine, she said it was excellent. Wife and I... More
