We'd been on the road for a couple of weeks, and were really in the mood for some home style comfort food. Our hotel front desk recommended this restaurant and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was close to the hotel, which was definitely a plus. Our server Travis was great. He greeted us immediately as we entered, took our order promptly, and brought our food quickly. We ordered off the Early Bird Menu. The portions were not huge, but after the appetizer, the entree, the garlic knots (excellent) and the dessert, we left totally full and satisfied.

This is our second visit to this restaurant. The first visit was disappointing but not this time. Vinny, our server, was very good in handling the 8 of us. The meals ordered included cheese ravioli, chicken parm, chicken Giovanni, penne a la vodka and meatball pasta marinara. All were good and the best part - we got them at the early bird prices. We will return to this restaurant.

On a recent business trip to the St. Augustine FL area, our hotel desk clerk suggested that we try Cucina Giovanni, which was right up the street. It was a wonderful meal: very tasty and fresh spaghetti sauce; superb veal parmesan and lasagna; and perfect pasta. The waiter was very prompt and professional, and kept the drinks and bread plate full. He also recommended some very good local beers for our meal. A great meal for a very reasonable price.

This review is based on a large group (50 people) bus tour with advanced reservations so it may not reflect an individual dining experience.

Our group arrived early with about 30 minutes warning. Considering the size of the group and early arrival, service was very good.

I had the cheese ravolie (4 pieces) with a tomato sauce. It was ok but not outstanding. The dinner rolls were heavy on garlic. The dinner salad was fresh. Fellow diners said that their chicken and egg plant parmesan were very good. The cannoli was average.

Overall, an ok restaurant, but not amoung the best.

Parking is available at the restaurant.

After driving to St. Augustine for vacation we looked for a place for lunch by the hotel. We found this great restaurant by chance driving around. Food was good and great value. Service was also great.
