About the restaurant
Cafe Cortina, located on the former site of an apple orchard in Farmington Hills, Michigan, has been in existence since 1976 and earned a following among food lovers for its authentic Italian atmosphere and cuisine.

Fresh pastas, gnocchi, ravioli and lasagnas are made from scratch in house daily, and many ingredients are sourced from their on premise garden located behind the restaurant. Meals likely to catch your attention include the vitello paillard, which includes bone-in veal and the tower of layered spinach lasagna.

Fireside seating is available in the main dining room as well as on the outdoor patio. Perfect for dates, special occasions, or just a casual meal with friends and family.

I had a dinner with family to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday. We were blessed with perfect weather and opted for outdoor seating. The seating area was gorgeous and romantic as well as spacious. The staff were incredible as always. My wife said this was the best birthday ever. Last but not least, the food was impeccable, delicious, plated with precision and perfection and served promptly and professionally making each member of my family feel special. Thank you!

The birthday table decorations were so festive: confetti, rose petals and a card! We dined early and it was very pleasant. However a table of eight gentlemen arrived shortly after and the sound level increased immensely!

Absolutely lovely anniversary dinner experience. We were treated to a spicy cucumber salmon hours d’oeuvre. The food is consistently on point, especially the crab-fried rice and filet. Service (Andrew) was impeccable. Looking forward to celebrating many more special moments at Eddie V’s.

About the restaurant
Giovanni’s Ristorante invites you to experience Italian cuisine in an atmosphere reminiscent of the old world charm where friends and family gather to enjoy more than just a meal. The homemade pastas, the prime cuts of meat, the fresh fish and farm grown vegetables are carefully prepared to preserve a distinctive flavor of the finest regions.

Specialty wines and spirits complement each course. Guests enjoy tableside conversation with Frances Cannarsa Truant, the “padrona” or perhaps a visit from Chef Randy Truant. The atmosphere is convivial, warm, and aromatic. The staff is seasoned, the service impeccable.

The Godfather Room is the ideal setting for a business meeting.
The Wine Room offers a touch of romance for that special evening.
The Main Dining Room is a perfect place to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary.
There’s a Speak Easy in the back for the ultimate private party.

Simply looking for a wonderful meal? Come for lunch or dinner.

Whenever we visit the Detroit Area we always make time to have a wonderful dinner at Giovanni's. We have also told many friends and family that this is a must try place. You can always count on a great meal and wonderful service. It's also great that not everything is ala-carte. Good Job Giovanni's staff!!!
