Italian
Giovanni’s Ristorante invites you to experience Italian cuisine in an atmosphere reminiscent of the old world charm where friends and family gather to enjoy more than just a meal. The homemade pastas, the prime cuts of meat, the fresh fish and farm grown vegetables are carefully prepared to preserve a distinctive flavor of the finest regions.

Specialty wines and spirits complement each course. Guests enjoy tableside conversation with Frances Cannarsa Truant, the “padrona” or perhaps a visit from Chef Randy Truant. The atmosphere is convivial, warm, and aromatic. The staff is seasoned, the service impeccable.

The Godfather Room is the ideal setting for a business meeting.
The Wine Room offers a touch of romance for that special evening.
The Main Dining Room is a perfect place to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary.
There’s a Speak Easy in the back for the ultimate private party.

Simply looking for a wonderful meal? Come for lunch or dinner.

    Our party of 5 had a wonderful time. The food was fantastic (artichokes, meatballs, calamari, shrimp, halibut, veal, etc..). Thank you Sarah for providing great service!

    Have heard about the storied reputation of Giovanni's for years, but had not previously enjoyed the pleasure... was delighted by the experience. Great venue (beautiful Bar/Decor), wonderful & attentive staff, and delicious cocktails/meal. First visit, but not the last (hope to return, soon!)

    Went to Giovanni's with my best friend to celebrate our birthdays. We've been once before and there's a reason we keep coming back. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing. Our water glasses were never empty, the food was hot, and we didn't wait too long for anything. There is a reason this is our favorite place to go for celebrations and why we always keep coming back.

    The food is always great! Our waitress was very pleasant and accommodating. The prices were a little high but still reasonable. The parking could be much better.

    Wonderful meal. I was a little uneasy with the location and looks from the outside since I'm not from the area. Do not let that stop you from going. The lasagna and special sea bass was perfect. All made in-house including desserts.
