Diner Reviews
  • "Fifteen minutes after being seated, we got our salad, the Don Giovanni salad, which was awful and I do not recommend. We never got our food even after waiting an hour and twenty minutes. People who were seated twenty-thirty minutes after us were given their food before my husband and I, and we just sat there, staring at our sad salad, and the waiters didn't even check in with us or apologize for the wait. After an hour we finally waved down a waiter and asked what was happening and he said ten more minutes and never came back. After 20 minutes we called the waiter from another table and told him we were leaving. They didn't charge us for the salad, and we are never going back again."

  • "Until our friend Tony La Stella was entertaining there on Sunday evening, we had no idea this restaurant existed. Mom has designed an incredible menu and as a couple her and her husband are extremely welcoming and friendly. You must go on a Sunday evening from 6-9 to hear Tony play, with an Italian attitude; pop, opera, Frank Sinatra and all with amazing vocals. We will be back!"

  • "A mixed review here. First the clear positives: very friendly, personal and attentive service; and the remodel of what was formerly Ristorante Auguri is very nice and the interior is much improved. As for the food, my partner and I both agreed that the salads were fine, but we split on our entrees. My mushroom risotto was quite good, but his pasta with lamb ragu was skimpy, not very flavorful and the ragu had bone shards in it. Liquor prices are quite steep. Overall, I'd also say that, while it's a nice enough place, they're overpriced by about 15% for what and where they are"

  • "True Italian recipes! We had three different entrees and we each would order them again. Tiramisu was outrageously good. Love having the owners come out to speak with us during dinner to tell us about themselves and their recipes. I returned two nights later with another couple and we had three different different delicious entrees. I had the cioppino which was excellent as the fish and seafood were cooked perfectly. Enjoyed our waiter Dave."

  • "We didn't expect to find an authentic Italian restaurant in Auburn WA. I had the best halibut I have ever tasted. My husband's pasta was homemade and his shrimp scallop dish was delicious. The service was impeccable. The staff were efficient friendly and authentic. The place had a great ambience. I would recommend this to anyone who loves authentic Italian food. "

  • "Superior service and delectable choices on the menu. The lamb chops were superb, and the shrimp and scallops excellent also. Unfortunately they were out of the pasta with wild boar, which was absolutely delicious last time we visited. Our server Michael also entertained us with a song--worth going just to hear him sing! We will definitely be back!"

  • "We had our anniversary dinner here and it was fabulous! The food is authentic and delicious. The atmosphere was sophisticated buy not snobby. I love that it is a family owned operation. It truly shows that they take pride in their craft. Would definitely go back and bring family and friends!"

  • "To be in Auburn for 14 years and have such a limited selection of authentic dining! Thank heavens for Don Giovanni!! The food was super and the atmosphere is fantastic- it reminds me of the Billy Joel song - a little place that is special to us and local. If you are asking what song? Nevermind. Go to this place - it is great! "

  • "We love Italian food and am thrilled that Giovanni's opened in Auburn! The food is fantastic and the service is incredible! We love that they will modify their dishes to your request, both for adults and kids. The atmosphere is cozy, but still kid friendly for older children and those who can eat quietly (because of the closeness of the tables babies or toddlers who are loud will disrupt other diners)."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing early dinner in the bar at Don Giovanni Ristorante with great service provided by Dave. Both the Pollo al Limone and Linguine al Frutti di Mare were excellent, as were the salads. I was hoping for a chicken pasta dish, but must admit the root vegetables that accompanied the chicken were sublime. Don't miss out on the Limoncello Gelato for dessert."

  • "The Ristorante has had a full remodel. The bar is awesome, from the 40's era. It looks like a place out of Italy. White table clothes, fantastic food, great wine list and a full bar. Everything is fresh and made in house. They have wonder fish and pasta dishes. Make sure you leave room for dessert! The owners are present and Don Giovanni comes around to meet and greet. You feel like your part of their family. Our waiter Mike Hickam, was fantastic. This is a 5 star facility with a very affordable price menu. They do accept reservations. If you feel like an evening out our you want to take the office staff out for a drink and snacks don't miss this place. It is a Great Find in Auburn."

  • "We walked in and were met by "mama" who warmly greeted us and then led us through the wonderful garlic scented restaurant to our seat. The food was wonderful. They had Gnocchi which is only found in a few Italian restaurants and we learned it was made fresh every day by Mama, and you could tell, It was Perfect. Giovani came out and talked with us at our table while his son chose our wine. We will be coming regulars at this hidden gem."

  • "Girlfriend and I enjoyed a special Valentine's Day with them. Between the ambiance, the incredible food, and the singing, it was a wonderful, romantic evening. And not too bad on the wallet ;-) Easy recommendation."

  • "Worst Valentine's day decision ever. Decided to take my girlfriend here fit candies day. We were not told it was going Yi be a set menu but oh well we'll stay and select from the set menu. Only way we found out it was a set menu was because or soup came out before our waters. Our pasta entree came out uncooked. Noticed three other tables around us disappointed and two of those tables got up and left before the third course. It was just a loud, unprofessional, hectic place to be with under par foodsl. Much rather Hehe olive garden and I haven't ate there in a decade. 170 bucks for a night of disappointment. Never coming back that's for sure"

  • "We went there on valentine's day and they had a special menu with a format of "this or that" for choices. The choices weren't great, the portions were small (granted it was a 5 course meal), and they REALLY PUSHED me and my wife to get two different things (maybe they were having trouble with balance? I overheard another couple being pressured in the same way even though the woman was not overly fond of the choices). One of my dishes had undercooked noodles, my wife's chicken was dry and flavorless, and the tiramisu was basically just whipped cream. To top it all off the cost per person was $60! Perhaps on a regular menu day, we may have found a quality italian restaurant, but they tried to be too fancy and special and fell very short."

  • "Our first time and it was valentines . The lighting and decor was so romantic. The service took a long time but it was valentines day and they were busy. The food was mouth watering and I have never had Italian like it before . We will be going back shortly."

  • "I enjoyed this restaurant very much. It had a nice feel and the staff was friendly. Food was outstanding. It was a last second decision to go out for dinner on Valentines Day so I was very happy to find a place that was suitable for the holiday. They had a menu catered for Valentines Day and couples which made food selection easy and fun (choosing 5 courses). Overall I would recommend this place and will be going again. I also like that I am supporting my local small business"

  • "This place is very comfortable and inviting. The owner greets every table and is genuinely interested in your experience. Great treatment and recognition of our anniversary. The lobster Saffron Ravioli and the Cod & Pork belly "Duo" Special were both outstanding entrees. Very solid well balanced and diversified Italian Wine selection. Highly recommend you try this place!"

  • "With a little facelift, Don Giovanni Ristorante & Wine Bar have the menu and tasty food to operate a successful business in downtown Seattle. Fortunately for the residents of Auburn, they do not!!! A relaxed environment whether you are spending your anniversary or just popping in for a bite. The staff treated all the customers as if they were all regulars~ Looking forward to the next visit."

  • "Had the pleasure of hosting a meeting at this restaurant. We had 12 people total and the restaurant was very acommodating. We were placed in the back and had the room to ourselves. The food was fantastic and we were even greeted by the owner and the manager to make sure the experience was a great one. This resaurant is a "must visit" when you are in the area!!"

  • "We went for a team dinner (we are from RI & were in Auburn for work) and the whole team raved about the food. The next day they were still talking about how good the food was. The owners came out to say hello to everyone. We loved that. The service was good. The ambience was nice. Quaint little place with delicious food. Glad we stumbled on that place."
