Amazing experience. Beautiful scenery, great location, and divine food. Get the squid ink pasta you won’t regret it! Service was phenomenal with friendly staff all around. The manager is also very in tune with the tables and always came around to check in on us. Very much appreciate a manager who works alongside his people and doesn’t just dictate orders.

Food was okay but not over the top for prices. Cocktails were pricey and deserts also. The staff was extremely friendly. Don’t think I will plan another dinner here.

Service was excellent as always. I wasn't feeling my best, and they were very understanding about wrapping my food up to take home.
Lee Armstrong is wonderful on the piano! Sitting upstairs and listening to her play is one of pour favorite places to be. We wish there were some little couches up there so we could sit and relax and listen to her all night!

Giovanni’s continues to be one of our Nashville favorites. This was our second time dining here and it did not disappoint. The food is great. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive. The atmosphere is just right. What more could you want? 10/10.

Spectacular. We had lasagna and the rigatoni as the main entree. Service was top notch. Everything made in-house including the fresh pasta and tiramisu. Will go back when back in town.

We had a friend with walker who had issues getting g up the stairs in the front . There was no ramp. Also, there was no valet so parking was difficult. And it was a Sunday night. I’m sure Friday/ Saturday is a nightmare.

As always when I eat there the service is nothing short of phenomenal! This was a date night for me and the first time for my date. The date absolutely loved the food as well. All three courses were exceptional and as always will return in the very near future for more! Thank you to the staff for everything and look forward to seeing y’all again really soon!

On our last evening in Nashville, we decided on a different cuisine. One of the most recommended Italian spots was Giovanni’s Restaurante. It was a very good choice! Janice and I were hosting our niece, a student at Vanderbilt and wanted to treat her to a restaurant new to her. We arrived a little early but were seated immediately. We were very impressed with the decor and atmosphere. Some great smells from the kitchen met diners and set the mood. After perusing the menu over cocktails, we made our selections. Appetizers included carpaccio and octopus in a tasty pepper sauce (very, very good). Main courses ranged from lasagna (house specialty) to house made spaghetti in a peppered cream sauce to veal scalopine. All excellent in preparation and presentation. Completed our meal with tiramisu, house made gelato, and espresso. What a delicious evening we had. Service, atmosphere (check out the beautiful glass chandelier in the dining room), and food combined to make for a special meal.

My new favorite Italian in Nashville. I can’t believe we haven’t been before. It’s 100% worth the drive from Franklin. The Lasagna and Bolognese are amazing!!

Our first visit to this restaurant. Service started fairly slow and was slightly better as the night went on, but had a few hiccups in between w bringing things requested. The food was very good. A 2nd visit may be in mind when we come back to Nashville.
