Giovanni Ristorante & Bar Italiano Ratings and Reviews
This was our second visit to Giavanni’s in the past month. Both times the service was extremely slow.
We finally had our dinner served after being there almost one and 1/2 hours.
We had our salads somewhat sooner.
We had our granddaughters with us. This was a long wait with children.
We don’t know if this is always the case....but it happened both visits.
Not very pleased. It took an hour and forty minutes to get our entrees. After being sat, we waited about thirty minutes for bread (after asking three different staff members). Our waitress would vanish for 15-20 minutes at a time. We placed our empty glasses & plates at the end of our table, and finally about twenty minutes later they were cleared (again after asking twice). Two tables were sat after us, and they received their bread, apps, drinks and finished their dinner before we even got our entrees. Overall experience was very underwhelming.
We visited Giovanni ‘s for the first time on Valentine’s Evening 2018. It is sort of hidden away in a shopping mall next to Physicians’s Regional on
Pine Ridge Rd. We were seated on time. The restaurant was full! Their wine list seemed very good. The Italian food was for onceauthentic. It was very tasty. My husband has the eggplant rollatini. I enjoyed a linguini smothered in shellfish. We enjoyed our meals very much. The desserts were excellent. I had a limoncello gelato mixed with limoncello. It was delicious. My husband had a coffee icecream around a coffee bean smotheredin chocolate. That was very good too. We will definitely return.
One of the best values in Naples for the traditional Italian dishes. Seafood is expensive but most everything else on the menu is truly at an outstanding price to quality ratio. The early dining wine special - most wines half off, is an amazing value and there are plenty to choose from. The noise level from the bar is probably the only negative, ask for a table away from the bar. Highly recommend.
For the past four years we have always enjoyed the food at Giovanni's. This time was not so good. There were four of us and two of the four meals were edible but not very good. The bruschetta appetizer tasted like it was made the day before. The tiramisu and chocolate cake were very good. Our server was very nice and attentive, a little too talkative though about things that had nothing to do with our drinks or meals but just chit chat. The restaurant seemed very noisy for whatever reason this time - especially the server taking care of the table behind us, he is probably a great server but he was so loud when addressing his customers that every table surrounding him could hear everything he was saying and he seemed to be conversing with them way too much.........not as if he personally knew them though.
All in all it was not an enjoyable evening and we were somewhat embarrassed bringing friends here from out of town.
We have dined here many times with good service. The restaurant was crowded and service from the kitchen was extremely slow, over an hour for salads without appetizers. The bar tender needs training and people skills. After a lengthy dinner experience we went to the bar and were promptly informed “last call” was in 15 minuets, at which time the games were turned off and the lights came up. Overall certainly not the best experience we have had at Giovanni’s!
Have been the Giovanni's several times with good food and service. This occasion service was very poor and food was so so. Food took over 1 hour before served. Waiter talked with guests at next table for about 10 minutes before finally making a first visit to our table. He blamed the slow food delivery on a large party however others who had been seated after us were served.
Always enjoy; always look forward to the visit. Two problems this visit...with a reservation for four the table (booth as requested) was only set for two and was reset while we were seated at the table and waiting for friends; then the service was much too slow.
Giovanni's is an Italian restaurant, just outside The Vineyards in Naples. They have wonderful food, tasty without being overpriced and the portions are not too large nor too small. They seem to use fresh ingredients and home made style food...doesn't have that out of the jar taste.
The service was great. Our wait staff was energetic, knew the entire menu and could answer your questions on the dishes.
My only negative comment is if you wanted a quiet romantic dinner, this is not the place. The crowd is lively and so the noise level is up there. But you don't eat noise, you come to eat the food. If you do, you won't be disappointed.
