We had brunch at Giovanni's this past weekend and it was wonderful. It is really the only high end, Northern Italian restaurant in Nashville. Always great service and great food. The fact that Giovanni himself is always there is the reason.

What a delightful experience. The food was five star. I will definately come here again on my next trip to Nashville and will recommend it to any one I know who is travelling there. Oh and don't forget to try their desserts.

They said they could not serve the eggplant without the melted cheese on top. Then proceeded to badly burn the top of the eggplant and cover it with the cheese-- that they could not omit.....
An overall terrible experience!! Choose one of the many other quality restaurants in Nashville.

Excellent authentic food and excellent service--perfectly timed and respectful. A gem in a lovely Nashville neighborhood. Perfect for any occasion, no matter how casual or formal. The ambiance is rare in this day of feeling like a customer everywhere. This "all food made in house" spot feels like home.

We were in town for a business conference and had dinner at Giovanni's. The service was friendly and professional, and the food was authentically Italian. Everything was outstanding. The ribeye steak was prepared perfectly, and the appetizers were great as well. The maitre'd was gracious and helpful. I'd highly recommend Giovanni's.

We were pleasantly surprised with the hidden gem. Our meals were amazing to say the least! The lasagna was delicious and so was the pasta dinner special of penne ala vodka. We were in town for the Nashville Ultra Marathon and pasta is the best way to prepare for a race. We could definitely come back here

The Risotto is some of the best I have ever had. The Chicken Scarpetta was outstanding. Orechetta with sausage and zucchini was also great. This Italian gem has been consistently serving authentic, outstanding Italian dishes. We visit this restaurant every time we come to Nashville.

Best Northern Italian restaurant in town, hands down. Authentic dishes, lovingly prepared. Elegant and refined atmosphere, professional yet unobtrusive service make for a top notch dining experience. Highly recommended!

As a visitor to Nashville this restaurant came highly recommended by the hotel as well as my limo driver. I have a tendency to be somewhat critical of Italian restaurants in the south but this restaurant was exceptional. It exceeded my expectations in both quality of the meal as the service was commensurate with the service. I highly recommend this restaurant

The staff and ambiance were excellent. They were very attentive and kind. The food was awful. I left paying $55 for a drink and a simple pasta dish. I was so upset. we were told the chefs were "from New York" implying that they must be very good. My pasta tasted like the entire container of salt was poured on it. My friends pasta wasn't even cooked all the way. The worst place we ate in Nashville. I can't believe I wasted so much money there.

Asked for a kit royale. Server didn't know what it was so he said they didn't have it. Didn't even ask bar tender. Brought wrong meal to one of our party- said it was her fault. They did finally bring what she ordered - but with no apology. When the bill came they had not corrected it. Charged us for a cocktail we didn't order. And, they charge $12 for cocktail and additional $1.50 if you want tonic in your gin or coke in your bourbon.

This is a GREAT ITALIAN RESTAURANT, however some things make it a 4 not 5.
The prices are extremely high for what you get.
The wine list is great but again super pricey...
The eggplant flavor was great however VERY mushy. I should have sent it back but I was hungry. I would not order it again (I am Italian)
The meatballs small but awesome
The lamb chops, great!
And their home-aid limoncello made the night Awesome
