    When we walked in the door a lovely hostess greeted us and since we were 45 mins early walked us to the bar. Our bartender Jeff was very knowledgeable about the wines we asked about and was very attentive. Ron was our server and the service he provided was Top shelf. All recommendations were spot on from our appetizer of Calamari to our main courses. Pam’s lobster ravioli was out of this worlds and my veal parmigiana was the best I’ve ever eaten. The ambience was great, the noise level was low and mgmt stopped by our table 3 times to see how we were. If I could give 10 stars I would!

    The service was excellent. Warm and friendly but not pushy. The calamari was the best I've ever had. Our meals were excellent and I felt like this was as close to Italy as you can come. Really enjoyed it. 5 stars.

    Phenomenal Italian restaurant. From the service to the cuisine everything was great. It is a pricey meal but worth it if you want the classic NYC Italian meal and atmosphere. The pastas are fresh and not overly heavy. The service is white glove but not overly done. The wine list is great with a wide selection of high end bottles from Italy and the US. The restaurant is a quiet place that is great for a special occasion or a business meal. Will be back .

    Giovanni's is my favorite restaurant since a decade. I love the food, and the waiters are always kind & attentive. The atmosphere is relaxing and there is never too much noise. I have taken family members and friends to Giovanni's and every one of them enjoyed the restaurant as much as I.

    This is a new treasure for us. It's the perfect venue for visiting with friends, whether at lunch or dinner. The servers are quite knowledgeable and experienced, yet not intrusively so. The pasta melts in your mouth. I've eaten here 4 times since Halloween and look forward to returning in the New Year.

    Service was terrible. For some reason the maitre d wanted to take our order (without writing it down) and promptly forgot about it. We had to ask a waiter a second time for our wine. A large group came in after us and received their entrées way before we did. Big on apologies - short on service Also too expensive for what one gets. Example: was charged $24 for two bottles of still water served in a plastic grocery store bottle.

    Food was amazing. A little pricey but the food was delicious. The waitstaff was friendly and we were able to order items not on the menu. (Chicken parm and spaghetti and meatballs). Also ordered dessert and wine. Ordered gluten free pasta and it was cooked perfectly.

    Always enjoy dinner at Giovanni’s, last evening was no exception. The starter made with burrata, sun dried tomatoes, olive oil and arugula was outstanding. We both had veal piccata and a perfectly paired Italian white wine. Great meal.

    Too dark to read menus. We had to use our phones. Seemed confusing who was our server. Server introduced himself. We had to ask for bread. Table seemed suited for 4 & we had reservations for 5! Servers kept walking into my chair & apologizing. Maitre’d ended up taking our order. Server would walk towards are table & then leave to go to another table. This restaurant came highly recommended to us by a server at theRed Phone Booth last month so I made a res to celebrate my nieces 21st bday. Entrees were good. Wouldn’t say fabulous. We were out in an hour. Not on list for next visit to Nville.
