Even though we were 15 minutes
Even though we were 15 minutes late after our reservation, they still took us in and served us with a smile. The waitress was friendly, quick, and attentive. The food was really deliciosio! Ambience was romantic!

My family and I came here
My family and I came here for brunch on Easter. The food was great! I ordered the Terriyaki marinated skirt steak. It was absolutely delish! The bread and olive oil was just as delicious. The ambiance was pretty chill. The only bad thing I'd have to say about this place is that when we first got there the hostess was on the phone, she looked up at us and clearly saw us all standing there and she turned right around. A woman who ended up being our waitress escorted us to a set of tables that hadn't been put together, right next to some random plants. Thought it was kind of strange they would sit us right there as we were a big party, with a reservation (which I had stated to her and another gentleman who didn't really seem to care).

Excellent wait staff, attentive
Excellent wait staff, attentive when needed,otherwise non-intrusive. It was cool to be able to watch the open area kitchen. Risotto con funghi was good, the polenta appetizer was an excellent pairing with the sauce, feta cheese and tomatoes. Great value for the amount of food.

Wonderful lasagne. We also
Wonderful lasagne. We also much appreciated the blond waitress that put up with us old folks all night long. Our companion went back later to get a lasagne to go. It was THAT good!

Nice Italian Restaurant
Don Giovanni isn't one of those outstanding places we all secretly hope to find and tell our friends about, but it isn't bad in any way. The food is very good, the winelist decent and the service and ambiance are fine too. No complaints but nothing especially outstanding

You haven't been here yet?!
We are repeat customers. We like everything about this place. The owner is a friendly guy who gives back to his community: read "free Thanksgiving dinner". The food is great, comfortable seats, never rushed. I've been there with my husband, another couple, a group of lady friends, and we did my husband's 60th birthday in the private room. Consistently good!

Good italian food, way too
Good italian food, way too many choices on the menu so it took a long time to get through it. Service was fine. I had teh linguine with clams and mussels in a red sauce, not too spicy, and there was not a speck of sauce left on my plate. Easy to park in the back lot as well.

We enjoyed our dinner, the food was very good, service was attentive yet rushed. Our experience was very positive, we were not rushed. Only point of criticism is that it appeared the restaurant needed one or two more waiters.

Great Italian dining
The place was crowded on Father's Day, and just after local graduations, but the service was prompt and friendly. The pasta with scallops was excellent, as was the chicken scallopini. A good, competent Caesar salad, too. We would return to Don Giovanni anytime we're in the area.

We have stumbled onto a gem! Love the food, its freshness, and the staff. Luckily, we are just a walk away!

This is a romantic Italian
This is a romantic Italian restaurant with excellent pasta dishes, especially the Bolognese sauce. We plan to return to try other dishes, especially the saltimboca and veal osso bucco.The desserts were excellent and just sweet enough. The blood orange cake was tangy and a surprisingly light and beautiful dessert. The Amoretto cheesecake and bread pudding were winners as well.

Great ambience, ok food
Everything looks great here (bar, service, scene) but what we went for to this particular restaurant -dinner- was alright. I wanted to give this place a second chance but the food was too bland. I probably have not chosen their best dishes.

Good food and service
I had a great time. The food was tasty, the service was really good. We sat there for a while and no one rushed us out.
Recommend for a delicious Italian meal at an elegant restaurant in a fun neighborhood.

Great for a large group
I booked a reservation for 10 for lunch this past week for a work-related celebration. Called the morning of to confirm and add one more person to the booking and they were friendly about it. When we arrived our table was ready and they managed the fact that a few people arrived late without a problem. The menu is nice and large, and the specials were good as well. I had a manicotti with ricotta and a tomato cream sauce that was fantastic (notable since it was a special, and in my experience specials often aren't as good as regular menu items). Many others at the table commented that their food was great as well, and then some of us had the exceptional sea salt and caramel gelato for dessert. Wonderful time!!

Enjoyable Family Dinner
Had a good experience. The food was very good, the service friendly and attentive and the atmosphere pleasant. They were very willing to accommodate our four-year-old's dinner request. We were there at 5:30 on a Saturday so it was not crowded. Definitely would go back.
