We had a delicious dinnerWe had a delicious dinner the other night. Each course was great.My complaint is:after taking a great deal of time looking at the menu and making our choices we were told the 2 different appetizers we had selected were not available.It's understandable that items run out,but we should have been informed of this before we looked at the menu.We then had to reselect.After making those selections,the waitress returns and informed us that the items we had choosen had supplemental charges that were not listed.By then we just okayed the additional charges instead of having to change our choices for a third time.We should have ordered indiviual items off the menu instead of the 4 course meal with all the additional charges.Aggravating.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis will be short.How was it? It's Giovanni's!
Still combining great food with excellent service.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date nightMy wife and I have been looking for an Italian restaurant in the area. And, when we stumbled across some free time, we quickly set up our date night at Giovannis. And what a night we had. Everything from the ambiance, to the food, to the impressive wine list left us impressed and enjoying every second of our time there. We were more than impressed and will certainly be returing...and soon!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMInnovative menu & great serviceThis incarnation of Giovanni's is the best yet. They have retained only a few of their classic Italian dishes and have added many choices of a more New American cuisine. The dessert menu has been totally revamped and is handled by a pastry chef who is very creative. The remodeling gives it a much more updated feel. If you need a dose of the former decor, you can ask to be seated in the Picasso room, which did not change. This is a terrific change. Give it a try and I promise you won't be disappointed.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMa touch of classgiovanni's always meets expectations for great food and service. recent update improves the already fine dining experience. it is one of the rare places which still offers dover sole and it is beautifully prepared and presented. the personal attention to each diner makes your experience memorable.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Great service.Great food. Great service. Lacks a little intimacy since the remodeling. Seems as though people are bunched into one area. Made a reservation through Open Table and had to wait 20 minutes to get the table.

Food delicious but just a little too salty and rich for my taste. Others probably like it that way.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome! sit in the bar area!You have to go! Try to sit in the bar area. Now with the new bar remodel, where we wanted to eat, it is awesome! Infact I have been there three times in the past month and last night before going out, my friend asked if we wanted to go to Giovanni's and I said we were just there last night! The food, especially the pasta dishes are off the charts! I ordered an extra dish just to take home! You need to try their deserts! We had this chocolate cake thing with icecream and then they bring this incredible chocolate sauce in copper dish. OMG! It could have been the best desert I have ever had! we used to think it was too stuffy, but no more!!!!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time dining here, wasFirst time dining here, was taken for my birthday.
