Highly Disappointed. Cold draft. Annoyed waiter :(
Excellent service from Mike. He knew the menu well and our beverages were never left empty. The service was very fast. Food was good, dessert (tiramisu) was “meh”, extremely dry.
We had a wonderful time celebrating my sons birthday.
Overall a great place to checkout! It made for a splendid date night. The foods that we liked were phenomenal, but the things that weren’t amazing were just so so. Our waiter stopped coming to us lol but another one stepped in. Fun place to try.
Felt the food was not seasoned very well . Not as good as our last visit to Giovanni’s.
Wow! So glad we came. Old school Italian - American style. Food was marvelous, service first rate and attentive without being too much. Pacing was good and relaxed. My first trip here and I can see why people still love it after all these years.
Very nice experience and food was outstanding. Staff all very pleasant
This is by far the best Italian food I have ever had! The staff are super friendly, knowledgeable of the history of Giovannis’s and very helpful. I’ve had Calamari in the past and hated it, it was like chewing on rubber!! Well not here at Giovanni’s, our waitress talked us in to trying it and let me tell you I can’t wait to go back and have it again!! It was incredible!! Everything about this place is incredible!! They really go out if their way to make you feel important and comfortable. I’m excited for my next dinner there.
The entire experience is amazing. From the valet to the hostess, waitstaff, chefs and bartenders. Thank you for the memories!
Food and service were impeccable!!!
My wife and I finally got a night out. So we ate at Giovanni's then went to see Shen Yun at the Detroit Opera House. When we got home at the end of the night, all we talked about was Giovanni's! Best dining experience we've ever had!! Thanks Giovanni's we WILL be back soon...
The food was excellent. The service was excellent, considering, like everywhere else, they were short staffed.
The atmosphere is very conducive to conversation with plenty of buffers in between.
We will definitely be back.
Very delicious. Everything from the appetizer to to the desserts were fantastic. Service was exceptional.
Amazing dinner! We left discussing the next time we will go there. Can’t wait to come back.
Food , service, and overall experience was incredible!!!!
Fantastic meal. Everything was perfection. Blood orange mimosa was fabulous. Service impeccable. Every bite was enjoyed and we will continue to dine here.
Best meal I've had in a very long time. Went for anniversary and was treated great by server and restaurant.
Came highly recommended from the staff at the Dearborn Inn. I had to try it and I am definitely glad I did!
Best Italian restaurant in Detroit. Outstanding menu, food and service.
Came here based on great reviews. Absolutely great food and service and would certainly recommend.
Could not have been better! Is you are looking for Old School Italian, it doesn’t get any better than this, lasagna, veal Marsala, pasta bolognese, on top of great service, this was world class!
We went for our 25th Anniversary and the resteraunt was fantastic.
Best Calamari in Detroit! Artichokes as an appetizer almost an equal.
We had Salmon and Veal both were outstanding. We appreciate the hard work put in by this team, food and service not missing a beat.
Wonderful meal and wonderful service as always. Our waitress Angela was great.
Took my wife out for her birthday. Made reservations in advance. The hostess greeted us and immediately wished my wife a happy birthday. Nice quiet table. Service was a little slow but in their defense they had a couple big parties in the hall area and dining area and were tending to them as well. Our waitress was a rock star. We will definitely go back. The food was to die for. Everything was great.
This place is great. My wife and I loved everything, from the wine to the appetizers to the amazing entrees. Sharon was our waitress and she was outstanding. Definitely will be back sooner rather than later.
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The location was surprising, but the valet service was great and the restaurant was amazing.
Always a great experience. Our favorite space in all of Metro Detroit. Celebrated my lady friends Birthday. They made her feel special and I appreciate the effort it takes.
They never disappoint. I just finished my carry out Angel hair pasta with Pomodoro & it’s still incredible the next day. Yum!
Food and service was great. I ordered lasagna and my husband had filet. Both were delicious. Waitress, Sharon was friendly and efficient.
Giovanni’s is a gem. Located in one of the least desirable areas in Detroit, that will not stop me from returning back to “the hood”. Everything about Giovanni’s is outstanding. The service is top-notch, the quality of the food and its preparation is second to none. Going there was like stepping into a time machine where you are in a mom & pop restaurant from 50 years ago. The ambience at Giovanni’s is worth the drive to this off the beaten tracks masterpiece..
Excellent food and atmosphere as always!
This is our favorite restaurant for any occasion.
Lovely dinner. Sat in a side room unfortunately the group next to us was talking loudly, but the dinner was delicious and, we enjoyed the wine.
Anniversary celebration meal. Fantastic overall experience.
Liked it so much, we booked a table for the following week…
Hope to make it a weekly occurrence!
Great food, great service. Our go to for Italian
