Diner Reviews
  • "The lasagna used to be my favorite in Naples. The last two times it has been average at best."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food is excellent here, a little less crowded off-season, bar scene lively with televisions on; pleasant, attentive waitstaff, good value for the money. A personal peeve only, could do without the music while having dinner and wine, while a decent house wine, could be more generous, a four ounce serving in a huge glass, definitely not worth the price for the serving. Next time, will stick with water."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "If you are looking for authentic NYC Italian food in a neighborhood setting, Giovanni's is the place. It is a little dark inside but the food makes up for it. The service is also attentive."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "It was nice to be able to make reservations even though we're not in busy season! We almost always make this a #1 preference. There were 6 of us. We walked in at 6:30PM and our table was waiting. We were 4 adults and two 9 year olds. There was not a Kids Menu, but they gave us multiple choices and our grandkids were easily pleased with 1 rigatoni and 1 penne with meat sauce. The sauce was delicious and their plates were clean. They also loved the warmed garlic/plain rolls. The other 4 meals were also excellent and they all came with soup or salad. It toped off the last day of their summer trip to Naples."

  • "The food is always great at Giovanni's . The service is perfect and the lighting is low if you like that, which I do."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "First time visit for Father's Day. We were about 10-15 min late due to the pouring rain at the driving time to arrive. They had a booth for us like I had specially requested. It was dark inside, but once you get in and adapt its perfect. Server was educated and knew what he was doing. Attendants were polite and there when necessary. Coming from the local restaurant business and background myself, this was so refreshing to experience! Everyone loved their meals, side salads were great, dressing and yummy rolls were good too. My husband can now say,"remember the first time we went there". We will defiantly be back just can't decide on what I'm going to get next. Prob. the Alfredo!"

    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "First time we tried Giovanni's. Did not disappoint. All three of us liked our dishes. My friend, who owns restaurants, thought the lasagna was outstanding. They keep the room dark, so it has an intimate feel. Nice Argentinian wine special. A very nice experience."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The food was average at best. Our waiter could barely speak English, and could answer no questions about the menu. After our order was taken, we never saw him again until our bill came. For years this was one of our favorite restaurants. We had a bad experience a year ago and just decided to give it another chance. Will not ever go back to this once great place."
    Dined on 5/24/2014

    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The service was very good - our waiter was very attentive and courteous. The atmosphere is pleasant and the decor attractive. The food is marvelous! Cheese ravioli was delicious. Margerita pizza was great with fresh tomato pieces."

  • "If we moved out of the Vineyards, we would still come back at least once or twice a month. As it is now we eat there at least once a week when we are in town."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "The restaurant was packed for dinner by 6:30-7:00pm. Service was good even with the crowd. I had seafood sauté with clams. The sauce was excellent. My wife had the veal soltimbocca. She was disappointed in it. She felt it was not the same sauce as what she had had there on numerous occasions. This time the sauce was kind of flat. She said it was OK but not their usual. Don't know if they changed recipes or if it was the person cooking the food. All in all, it was a good experience. We will venture back again as we've eaten here on numerous occasions. It's never disappointed."

    Dined on 4/12/2014

  • "Austin our waiter couldn't have been more helpful. His knowledge of the menu and his timing of the food service made for a very enjoyable night."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We were fortunate to get a same day reservation when our first restaurant choices were unavailable. Lucky for the four of us. We got immediate seating in a decent size booth along the left wall ( they are larger than the others ) and had a charming waitress from Romania. Cocktails were of good size and were served promptly. Special veal and fish dishes were extremely good and reasonably priced. Only complaint is that the restaurant temperature was somewhat warm ( the same complaint we, and others, have experienced on previous visits )."

  • "We had reservations through Opentable. We arrived on time and were given the "line of Fire" seat. It was a booth by the entry door there were plenty of tables open and plenty of booths open but they chose to seat us in the "Line of Fire" seat. We declined the seat and asked for another booth which they did give us. They did not seat anyone else at the "Line of Fire" seat until the entire restaurant was fully. WHy did they decide to give us the "Line of FIre" seat and no one else? I guess I have to specify no line of fire seat for us. The food was very god and the service was nice."

  • "Very ordinary Italian food. Sauce tastes like it came out of a can, same used on all entres. There is an outstanding Italian restaurant about a mile away that prepares fresh tasting sauces."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Ordered special of the night and it was swordfish. Very thin piece and assort veggie were soggy. Asked for risotto instead of pasta side and it was hard and dry. Seemed like it was day old and they microwaved with butter to try to bring it out. Cesar side salad was 1.99 extra and it was loaded with a creamy dressing- more like a jar dressing and not fresh made. Had to ask server three times for rolls and they finally came at end of our meal. Won't go back."
