My very Italian mother-in-law chose Giovanni’s after reviewing several Italian restaurants in Nashville. It was very authentic and so so good!

Our wedding reception dinner was held here in 2014 and without exception, Chris not only took care of us then, but every time we have dinner there, Chris makes us feel like family. This is the place for any occasion, and the food is unreal.... enjoy!

Nice restaurant with tasty food ... will return to visit regular menu. The Valentines selection was good but portions bordered on the small side.

Great dinner in the bar while we watched basketball. Best Italian in Nashville! Veal piccata was wonderful. Breadsticks are so good. Service is always friendly and attentive.

Our meal and service was outstanding. Each of the dishes were of classical origin, made of the best and freshest ingredients and prepared exquisitely. Pasta and sausage were all made in-house (like all of their recipe components). The service and delivery was of the best we have ever experienced.

Giovanni’s is absolutely one of the finest restaurants of any type in Nashville. It has no peer among Italian restaurants. Very fine food, wonderful ambiance, and impeccable service. We dine here frequently

Giovanni's is my new favorite Nashville restaurant! Everything about it was fantastic. The food was outstanding. If you want REAL Italian food, go to Giovanni's. The service was attentive and impeccable. The ambiance was quaint and felt authentic without being "stuffy" or contrived. I loved seeing families there with children, young adults on dates, older couples, college kids, and diners who are clearly regulars and know the staff. Everyone was happy to be there and really enjoyed the meal and the company in the restaurant. I plan to eat at Giovanni's every time I am in Nashville. If you crave Italian and authenticity, head to Giovanni's Midtown!

A fabulous meal. The veal and breadsticks were divine. Excellent waitress with great wine suggestions. Pricey, yes, but worth it.

AWESOME!!! The food and service were both spectacular. I had the tagliatelle and bolognese was flavorful and filling. My wife’s lasagna was the best she’s ever eaten. Excellent wine list. Be sure to cap off you meal with the limoncello. This was our 30th wedding anniversary and we couldn’t have been more pleased.

Giovanni's was simply amazing. We let our waiter pick all dishes, including the wine and we were not disappointed. The food and atmosphere were simply amazing. Will become a regular spot when traveling to Nashville.
