I love the bar of this place, in particular the wine list is very professional. A must is the Grappa. The menu has a long list and pasta is fantastic. Service is good.

Went to eat at Giovanni's with a friend of mine. I had gnocchi and then a delicious fillet steak and cheese for dessert. Everything was delicious and we will return as soon as possible.
