This was our third visit. As usual it was excellent. The owner took the time to chat with us. Itr was a definite plus. We make it a point to stay in the area so we can dine here.

Nice date night spot
Menu was smaller than we had anticipated, but everything was excellent none the less. The calamari was outstanding. The kitchen was very accommodating with a request to replace the shrimp in a pasta dish with extra scallops and clams. It was great choice for our first kid free night out in over a year and a half!

Go for the nook
Great food and outstanding service. The bar area and the nook by the bar have great atmosphere. The nook is quiet and intimate if you are on date night. The main seating area can be somewhat noisy and is a little plain and devoid of atmosphere.

Unreal food but..
Lets start by saying we got there at 5:00 pm on a Saturday evening; it was real quite. The waitress got to us in a reasonable amount of waiting but when she brought our wine selection she forgot my wife's. Then after taking our order, she brought my wife's appetizer but said she forgot to put my app. order in! The food on the other hand was fantastic! Our meals were warm and generous and tasted wonderful. I highly recommend the macaroni and cheese with lobster tail. Yum Yum! If it wasn't for the forgetfulness of the waitress, it was a perfect dining experience. We are going to return soon!

We came early and sat near the bar. The bartender was excellent, and the food was tremendous. Cannot believe we did not check this out sooner. We will be regulars.

A new favorite place!
Considering we have never been to this restaurant, or even heard of it until recently, we weren't sure what to expect. Well, it went beyond our expectations! Nestled in a quiet neighborhood of Victor, NY, Giovanni's looks like a small place to eat, but once inside, the ambiance and the decor made it warm and inviting. The food was awesome--loved the lobster bisque, and my Chicken French was so good, you could cut it with the fork. My wife's Frutti de Mare was good (she only wished she had gotten the spicy one), and we both loved the Chocolate Raspberry cake that we shared. We felt we could sit there for three-plus hours and nobody would have minded. Thanks to all at Giovanni's for making your restaurant one of my new local favorites!

Giovanni's appears to be a
Giovanni's appears to be a worthy successor to Victor Grilling, a years-ago hot spot for diners and sadly missed by many, including my wife and I. I'm not quite ready to say our experience the other night was as good - it will take a few more visits, perhaps - but it was encouraging. And by the way, besides the dining our visit to the bar while waiting for our table was a treat. Not only was the bartender friendly and engaging but it turns out she's a Grimmster, the name adopted by us fans of Grimm the TV show. Not a bad way to start the evening.

I've been to Giovanni's twice and have felt so welcomed by all of the staff and had an excellent meal. I would recommend to anyone togo there.
