Giovanni's Ristorante - Nashville
Best Italian Fine DiningBest and only good traditional veal piccata in town. Always tender and delicious.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMost outstanding dining experienceMost outstanding dining experience yet! The food was absolutely incredible with service to match! I don't think our drinks ever even got half empty the whole night! Yes, the menu is quite pricy, but its more than worth it. You can't make a wrong choice on any of their dishes, it's all incredible. Definitely a romantic spot, also good for rehearsal dinners/special events. Won't go wrong dining here!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGiovanni's RistoranteExcellent food that was not excessively sweetened. Good service: the servers were courteous and helpful without being supercilious. Ambiance: attractive and quieter than many Nashville restaurants. Price: fairly expensive but reasonable value for the quality of the food.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian in NashvilleCan't believe I waited so long to have dinner here. Absolutely fantastic.

I was very pleased and more than happy to add to the tip.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful entreesThe facility is very attractive. Live piano music was a plus - and quiet enough that you could still easily have a conversation even within close range. The service was truly outstanding. Appetizers were very good, particularly the salumi, which were excellent. The entrees were quite good, but less inspiring. We found the desserts lacking. Very limited choice of standard restaurant desserts, rather heavy handed, with the exception of the gelato, which was well made and flavorful.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time IThis is the second time I have been here. The restaurant is beautiful and has a lively atmosphere. The food is simple, but tasty as all Italian food should be. I would recommend this as a great place for a romantic evening.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGiovanni's does a great jobGiovanni's does a great job at classic Northern Italian food. All of the dishes our table had were perfectly prepared and the ingredients were fresh.
The Pasta is all made on the premises and is incredible. The Veal Chop was excellent.
Service was very attentive without being overbearing.
I would definitely recommend Giovanni's for a nice night out.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellant menu choices deliciousExcellant menu choices delicious food awesome service3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian Food in NashvilleGiovanni's is the very best italian restaurant in Nashville.

If you are a foodie, I suggest letting the chef pick your meal...Then just sit back and enjoy!1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFor people who know real ItalianI recently returned from Italy and the menu here offered foods I thought were only unique to Italy. Not anymore, I can have an exact meal I would have ordered many many many miles away right here at this restaurant.1/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely wonderful.Ignore any reviews from before late 2012, when the new owner and chef arrived: Giovanni's is now absolutely stunning. I decided to try a simple dish: spinach and ricotta ravioli with breast of chicken. It was perfect: it instantly became the standard against which I will judge pasta dishes from now on. Perfectly balanced flavors of fresh pasta made in-house daily, beautifully smooth ricotta, truffle oil, and Parmesan cheese transformed a potentially boring dish into something extraordinary and wonderful. Other dishes were equally inspiring. The calamari stew on polenta was perfectly executed, with tender calamari rings and a flavorful, well balanced sauce. The staff was attentive and helpful, and the ambiance was upscale and cozy.12/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
