Giovanni's Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

The food was excellent, but our server was not the best. We waited 15 minutes for menus. We also asked for more bread which we never got. The busboys were top notch, keeping the table cleared and drinks filled. The restaurant is a little tight so my chair was continually bumped and to noise level was very high due to poor acoustics. The food was great and overall we had a good time.

Yum! Everything I have had has been cooked to perfection! My dining companion loves, loves, loves the homemade noodles - very delicious! Highly recommend not only for the food but the people. I love going to a place where the people working look as if they are having as good a time as the patrons. Everyone is so nice, helpful, and friendly!
Only downside is that it can be very noisy when the restaurant is full. We usually opt to eat on the patio if the weather permits.

The food is consistently excellent, well-prepared and delivered professionally. The staff is competent and friendly. Prices are reasonable and the menu is varied. Ambiance is urban casual and relaxed. Highly recommended!

Giovanni's Kitchen has great food and attentive service. Obviously, this place has caught on because the noise level and the crowd at lunch was overwhelming.
I would suggest making a reservation at an "odd" time…earlier or later than the usual!

The service and friendly wait staff were wonderful. You don't always experience that when dining out. Excellent food and reasonable price. Tried the canneloni. It was definitely homemade. Very light and tender. The Novella salad is my very favorite especially with the Honey balsamic vinegarette dressing.

I have dined at this restaurant twice before and I enjoyed the experience and food. This evening, I invited six friends to join me. We all experienced a pleasant evening and each individual enjoyed his dinner selection.
The service was efficient and the dining room was quiet which allowed all seven of us to participate in the conversation of everyone at the table.

Food and drink was outstanding but maybe we hit them on a bad night bc service was slooooow. Although our waiter was at the mercy of others he was very nice. Also it was very loud. Going to try on a weeknight or earlier on a weekend next time.

Horrible experience. Ordered a full order of pasta that barely filled the bowl. When I asked if that was a full order the host came back with a small empty bowl and said this is our small. It makes no difference the size of the bowl if you choose not to fill it. I am not eatting the bowl. I won't return

Not impressed, had to ask for bread twice, had to ask for water, had to ask twice for diet coke.
My food was not hot, waiters and staff spent a lot of time at the front door talking to maitre'd, instead of paying attention to diners.
