    Everything that we ordered was absolutely delicious! Will definitely be coming back here. Didn’t take pictures of the drinks or salads or dessert but all of it was perfect. Lovely restaurant to go to if you want to dress up and have a nice evening.

    Was so excited to try this as it came highly recommended. But overall I don’t think we’d return due to service. Our reservation was for 8:15 but it seems this place shuts down early, on a Saturday night most tables were empty and those seated were enjoying their entrees. Positive: the food was phenomenal- wedding soup, calamari steak, veal parm, cavatelli, tiramisu and sorbet. Everything I would eat again! I wish there were less of the potato sides and maybe something like a sausage or meatball. Negative: all of that good came in under and hour. We don’t get out much with two kids, so to be rushed on a rare date night with good food was really disappointing. What’s worse, we ordered coffee with dessert but were told the coffee machine was shut off for the night! There were about 6 or so tables still seated plus a private party, so that was very rude and unacceptable in my opinion. I am not a restaurant owner by any means, but come on, coffee takes 15 min to brew! Our ticket was about $250 so we weren’t skimping and truly trying to enjoy our night out. Staff cleared our dessert plates that were only half eaten. Granted we were stuffed, but maybe would’ve had another couple bites just do indulge while signing the check. I’ve never been so rushed at a nice restaurant. Would not recommend for a relaxing night out. Maybe sitting at the bar would’ve been better but why bother with a table if this is how they operate.

    Everything but the ambiance and the hostess' hospitality left something to be desired. Service was professional overall, but lacked polish for the price point. A lot of backhanding during service. Bread service is upon request or the server forgot, and once requested the bread is ok at best. Oysters were overwhelmed with the tomato granita, and seemed as if they had been sandbagged, making the oysters frozen to the taste. The "shaved" fennel is actually large diced and overwhelming. Finally the muscle was not removed from any Halibut was

    This is a beautiful restaurant. The surroundings are so relaxing and elegant. The service was all around the best service I think I’ve had in a long time. The dishes were made to perfection. It’s perfect for a romantic evening with your significant other, or even for a family dinner. I had brought my 9 year old daughter in on one occasion and the staff was just so pleasant with her and loved to have her. The setting is definitely more for adults, more sophisticated, though they still welcomed her in. I have never had a bad dish, bad service, or bad experience overall anytime I’ve eaten here. This is more than 5 star restaurant in my opinion. As many times as I’ve been here, I still get excited about coming here. This is a genuine Italian family restaurant with class! Until next time! -Kate.

    Service was attentive and personalized. Food was excellent as always. Atmosphere was sophisticated although a little noisier than usual. Maybe because this was Friday at lunchtime. This is my special "go to" place!

    another fabulous meal at Giovanni's however the waitstaff is very young and a little inexperienced. I would coach them on when to clear a table (when BOTH diners are completely finished) and when to bring the check, when requested (ASAP not 10 minutes later). other than that it was absolutely delightful.
