Table of 7 to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. Lovely evening. Great food. Good service. Definitely recommend.
Our experience was very nice. Celebrating my husbands birthday
SECOND TIME HERE AND AGAIN GREAT. WE HAVE HAD THE MEATBALL, CHICKEN MARSALA, SEAFOOD PASTA, SEAFOOD STUFFED RAVIOLI AND LAMB. ALL WAS GREAT WITH GREAT SERVICE. THIS IS OUR NEW NEIGHBORHOOD FAVORITE. JUST AS GOOD WHEN IT WAS IN THE CITY.
Great restaurant for lunch with a selection of appetizer, salad, entree, sandwich or pasta.
Consistently good quality and well prepared food.
Always a wonderful evening! Staff are extremely efficient and responsive to all our questions and request.
The Reagan pasta was as good as ever as was the caprese salad but the special fish of the day, grouper was bad.
GREAT EXPERIENCE. Just like Giovanni's on the hill but more casual but still the great food and service. I think we have a new neighborhood favorite place.
Excellent food. The house made pasta is delicious as well as the bolongnese sauce.
Food was good. Tuna was outstanding. Calamari, a little oily. Overall a great meal.
I was looking for a place to eat in Clayton, and am so glad that I found Giovanni's Kitchen. The restaurant is beautiful and the tables are nice and spread out. They also have great outdoor seating. I started with the butternut squash ravioli, which was just heavenly. I then had the special sea bass with spinach, which was cooked to perfection. I finished with the tiramisu, which was amazing. My server Simona was fantastic - fast, friendly and efficient. She and the entire staff helped make my experience there absolutely perfect.
It was a very tasty meal served by a knowledgeable and very polite and effective server.
Enjoyed our lunch at Giovanni’s Kitchen...always delish!
Always great food. Tenderloin was amazing.
The food was excellent. The servers were quick and friendly. Only thing I would recommend is adding a few more vegetarian options.
Great food and service as usual!
It was great to be outside and the service was great and so was the food. If I were them I would add some pretty planters to the patio area.
Unfortunately it is simple. The good was not good. We were very disappointed.
As a returning customer, we continue to enjoy this neighborhood gem. Food, service, and atmosphere are top notch and worth multiple visits!
Just excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Good value as well.
Very nice staff, very good food!
Fab as always
Excellent service, ambiance, wait staff and the food was fantastic. Perfect spot to celebrate my best friends birthday. Will definitely be back soon!!!!
Delicious food, friendly and welcoming staff, quiet and well-spaced dining area. What's not to like?
Awesome food as always. Had new waiter. He had too many tables to handle. Other staff helped out.
There is just not a better place to have lunch in my opinion. The service is superb the portions are absolutely generous and the food is exquisitely cooked and perfectly seasoned. Run don’t walk there
Great! Food and wine were spot on!
Excellent meal and service. Enjoyed dining on the patio...
Order of events...
Excellent service, excellent cocktails, excellent starters, excellent entrees, excellent desserts, and excellent cocktails.
I took a party of 6. Ages ranged from 21-50. Everybody loved it.
We dined at Giovanni’s Kitchen to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Meeting current restrictions due to COVID 19, the tables were nicely spaced, the servers and Maitre D were all wearing masks. Our salads were fresh, crisp and delicious. We both had pasta entree’s which were hot, flavorful, and equally delicious. The “Presidential Pasta” is truly a favorite of mine, and Giovanni’s did not disappoint.
They serve an incredible eggplant salad that we were looking forward to, but, unfortunately, they were out of eggplant, and we learned it is an item on the lunch menu only. A bit of a disappointment, but it did not ruin our celebration.
We will definitely return.
Staff was great, atmosphere understandably awkward, kitchen rusty I guess.
31st Anniversary Dinner. Missouri opened up to inside dinning. We enjoyed everything. Plan to invite our Dinner to club to check it out.
Custom Martini Very Good.
Happy to see they survived the Pandemic.
Plenty of space between tables and we ate in the patio.
Food was excellent and service was good.
Great food. Fair price. Comfortable dining experience.
Our server, Carlin was amazing! Friendly, professional. We ate out on the patio, very comfortable chairs. It was a very warm evening, during dinner, Carlin offered additional ice for our drinks. Our food arrived hot & delicious. We will return.
Simply superb. Everything was cooked to perfection.
Delicious food, we loved the ambiance, very unexpected from judging the outside of the restaurant. The only downside was there was about 5 minutes between the time we were seated and the time we had menus. After eating our entrees it took about 10 mins to get the check. Other than that great experience will be back for sure
We were there Friday evening, March 13. The virus situation was in full swing, so there were very few diners there. We received extensive personal attention from our server, although it was not overly in our face. The food was excellent, they had off the menu items, and they were up to their usual standards.
I was sadly disappointed in our experience, Giovanni’s has been one of my favorites and our dinner last night was definitely not typical. My husband ordered lamb chops med rare and they were served quite well done. I really love the risotto and when I ordered the server told me they were “out” I’m not sure how you run out of rice by 6:45 on a Friday night? I ordered a cosmo and what was served was a sickening sweet “Italian Cosmo” which Apparently was a special but not what I ordered. My husband ordered an old fashion which tasted like it was missing something, and for an Italian restaurant I would have expected Luxardo or similar cherries and what was served were the electric red candy type. Likely won’t be returning any time soon.
