    The name of this resturant should be PHONEY Giovanni's...there is NOTHING ITALIAN about this restaurant at all...if Italian is what you are looking for do not go here. I would not recommend this place, regardless. The menu is ODD. Also the waitress was crazy, came up to our table singing etc

    We were amazed at the quality and the combnations of foods. Everything was delicious, and the portions were more than adequate. The server was friendly and helped us choose from their excellent menu. We were shocked at how empty the place was?? It is off the main road, in what seemed to be an office building but well worth the search. HIGHLY recommended!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/8/2013
    First day in Jackson and first time back to Jackson in 20 years so we didn't know where to eat. Read about all the restaurants in town and Giovanni's got fairly good reviews for the food and price but marked down on service. This was our experience. The food was outstanding and the prices reasonable for a resort town. The service was terrible. We had to ask for water 3 times and for bread twice. Finally got the bread after eating the salad and half way through the meal. The braised beef tips in a creme gorgonzola sauce was out of this world. One of the best dishes I have ever eaten.

    Just OK. The chopped Proscuitto salad was great for a starter, and set expectations high. But the fried calmari was nothing special and the chicken pasta dish (special of the day) was bland. The service was very good, but the food was below Jackson Hole average.

    This was my third visit to Giovanni's. I love Italian food and keep hoping that Giovanni's will get better. The restaurant is beautifully done but the food does not suit the decor. My son reported that all of his friends at school love Giovanni's. If you imagine kids' favorite food, you will have a good idea of the flavors you will be treated to at Giovanni's. Please bring in a chef from San Francisco or New York who can make Giovanni's all that it could be.

    Too bad Giovanni's is in a nondescript commercial building on a busy street, Broadway, in the "industrial" south side of town. In other words, little ambiance from the outside and pretty plain inside. That shouldn't deter you, however, because the food is really quite good. My personal opinion: the best Italian food in the valley, for quality and price. Spaghetti with meat balls: excellent. My dining companion enjoyed her eggplant parmesan. Limited but good selection of wines and reasonably priced when you order by the glass.

    We enjoyed a delicious meal at Giovani's. Started with one of their specialty drinks, a basil mojito. Terrific. Then we shared their Italian clam chowder. Definitely enough for two!! My husband had the classic lasagna and I had the Lamb Bolognese. Both meals were phenomenal. Steve the manager checked in on us to be sure we were happy. Definitely would recommend

    I had visited Giovanni's a few years ago on opening week. It was absolutely dreadful. I revisited them recently and it was 1,000 times better. The food was excellent. The olive oil and chili pepper vinaigrette they give you to dip the bread in is amazing. One of the best restaurants in Jackson, hands down.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 12/12/2012
    It was my birthday dinner and we hadn't been here for 2-years due to poor food. I has heard that there was a new chef, new menu so I wanted to try it again. I ordered sausage lasagna. It had so much sausage that I couldn't find the noodles. It was luke warm at best. I waited for the waitress, Dava, to come back which was a while and I told her I couldn't eat this so I got the special which was short rib ravioli. It was ok. My Caesar salad was so drab. It was like no dressing on it. I was very disappointed. I guess I should be happy it was 2 for 1. I will not go back.

    We had a GREAT dinner! The salmon was AMAZING.....with the creamy polenta! My husband had the Pork Ragout and practically licked his platter clean! I have been on a diet.. (GRRRR!) So was happy to find the delightful chopped salad and salmon on the menu! I ate half and took half home for another meal!

    This turned out to be our best meal in Jackson. The verdure chopped salad was unique and wonderful. My son and I both had the lava lake lamb which is a homemade pasta dish with braised lamb shoulder. The sauce was amazing- what a great dish. We had a bottle of the house chianti which was great deal at $37. The house made bread came with a dipping sauce that many of the diners are asking them to bottle its so good. Prompt courteous service by adorable Kayla and the general manager Steve went out of his way to thank us for our business. This gem should be a must on anyone's list or Jackson.

    I found the food very tasty. The lamb was flavorful and tender; however I was up all night and the revenge continued into the next day. The chocolate bread pudding tasted like a brownie with whipping cream and a scoop of banana ice cream. It just was not outstanding. The cream brule was tasty and generous. We would go back again; but not be so bold on the order.

    We have been waiting a long time for the new menu; the pizza and the wings to be added. We were not disappointed. My husband and I ordered a dozen wings and the lamb-sausage pizza and both were perfect and delicious. Thank you Giovanni's for stepping up and making some changes! We live close by and would love for Giovanni's to become "our regular place"!

    This was our second visit to Giovanni's this summer (2012) and we had 9 people. Drinks and appetizers were good... cheerfully and quickly served. Our group ordered everything from their house pizzas to assorted Italian dinners including lobster ravioli, eggplant parmesan, etc and were very happy with their selections. Prices were very reasonable. All in all, dollar for dollar, Giovanni's is an exceptional value in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
