We have dined here often over the past 20 years. Our 2 meals this visit, Veal Saltimbocca and Veal Stragioni, were not only the best Giovanni’s has ever presented to us, but probably the best Italian meals we have ever been served, anywhere. Our very attentive and helpful server, Danial, told us he believed Giovanni routinely does the best veal in all of Naples, and that our meals were especially fantastic because it was off-season, a relatively slow night and the kitchen could take special care. Dan also recommended a wonderful Cabernet ($25). This was a fantastic experience and we will return often, at least during our “off”, Better season!

Everything in the restaurant was perfect including the service by Lucas and the fabulous food. I enjoyed the special which was Branzino with sautéed spinach cooked to perfection and my mother enjoyed the Grouper Livornese which was equally as impressive

No surprise here since I’ve been visiting this restaurant for almost 10 years and have never been disappointed

All four entrees were awful. Dinner fish special was so salty couldnt even taste the fish. Filet was so overcooked it had no flavor. Veal piccata was overbreaded and the sauce was not even close to lemon or butter and the shrimp with capellini was flavorless...dipped the shrimp in the salty dinner special for some flavor. Should've gone to Olive Garden.

It’s an ok restaurant. Nothing memorable. Tomato sauce is rather runny, not hearty. The veal palm was ok, not even close to some other Italian restaurants in the area. The ‘bolognese’ was ground beef added into the tomato sauce. Very, very noisily. Tables are close together, restaurant voice will result in your dinner companions not participating in your conversation. Service was lackluster. As noted, it’s ok, but I have no reason to want to return.

We are new to Giovanni’s, but three visits in quick succession have made us fans. Food, for the most part, has been good to great. The linguine and clams were outstanding. The chicken Marsala ordinary. We like the half price wine list (until 6:30) and the white table cloths. Service has varied from great to a bit shaky with what we think was new staff. This is more than a spaghetti joint. The veal dishes delivered as did the grouper. This is very good food at reasonable prices. We’ll be back.

We were a table of six and had an excellent waiter (Andy). Although it was a very busy night he took the time to explain the specials of the night, answer several questions about the regular menu items and followed up with us during dinner. The food was very good; in fact it was noted that all six of us had "cleaned our plates" which is unusual - everyone enjoyed their meal. I could have done without the melted cheese on top of my lobster ravioli. We found it very good food at a fairly reasonable price.

I had the gnocchi and was disappointed, apparently they don’t make their own pasta. It was probably store bought. My wife’s gnocchi was just as good or better.

Our party of 4 requested outdoor seating upon arrival. Hostess advised that would be no problem and then continued to just stand and stare at us. I finally asked if we should seat ourselves and was told we should. Menus and water did not arrive after 10 minutes of waiting despite the only other outside occupied table had wait staff coming/going. Husband finally got up & requested menus from hostess which she handed to him. Another 10 minutes pass and husband this time walks up to hostess & requests if waitstaff can take our order. In the meantime, we requested a passing bus boy wipe our table down - it was done but very sloppily. Friendly waitress eventually appears to take orders. Three of us had chicken or veal dishes served with side of pasta. I had a pizza. My meal was the only one worth eating and enjoying. The chicken & veal dishes were served with no visual appeal, a very thin & runny sauce over the pasta and virtually tasteless. As this restaurant had been recommended by two different people, we had high hopes for it. Will not be returning.

We love Giovanni's! It's our "go-to" place to take friends for a wonderful Italian feast! Try the Eggplant, the Lasagna or the Oso Buco! Don't pass up the garlic rolls, either!!! Have dessert!

It doesn't matter who is your waiter or waitress, the Service is the same - Spectacular!
