Giovanni�s Ristorante, which you can find in Ottawa, Ontario, is proud of its reputation for serving some of the finest Italian cuisine in the surrounding area. The staff insists upon only the finest ingredients like AAA steaks and seafood taken fresh from the sea. Guests will also enjoy the lovely d�cor, which is filled with gleaming crystal, in addition to the food at Giovanni�s Ristorante.
One great way to start your meal at Giovanni�s Ristorante is with one of the excellent soups, such as the minestrone or the stracciatella. When you make it to the main meal, you might try one of the veal dishes. The veal marsala, with mushrooms and a wine sauce, is just one of many options.
Took my girlfriend here for dinner. Incredible experience. Loved the food, and our waiter was on top of everything... And funny too!
Absolulelty amazing!! Some of the best food and service I have ever had!
Un-Fu*&ing-real. I have never had a bad experience there.
I don't think I've put this in a review before but "Very professional"
We had phenomenal service and the food was absolutely amazing. It was my first time visiting and certainly won’t be my last!
It was very tranquil
The food was excellent though would have appreciated the waiter telling us the special was $75 before recommending it over a $35 meal. It would have been important to know the cost.
Everything was delicious. The only problem that I had was that there were crab shells in my meal so I wasn't able to finish it. Even though, it still had great flavour. The service was outstanding and the staff are so polite and kind. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service enjoyed in good company
Food was excellent and so was the service. The only downside was the room felt a little bit cramp. I would recommend this restaurant.
First Timers. Great food and service was excellant
A bit pricey
Restaurant is very loud and tables are close together
Would definitely return
Amazing service from start to end.
The food was great as well. However, it was a bit crowded and tight but that was minimal impact on the overall experience.
Definitely worth going there for special occasions.
The food here was absolutely incredible, it was a wonderful evening with very polite staff. The food was beautifully served and delicious! It is on the higher price-end of little Italy, but if you are going to celebrate and have one of the best dinners you've ever eaten this is a place I would HIGHLY recommend. Their desserts are Instagram-able and decadent, and their mixed drinks are perfectly strong and flavourful while their wine list is comprehensive and well organized. This place is highly recommended for a classy night out!
Second time at this restaurant. Very nice place with a good ambiance and great food, pasta is amazing. The only negative was the service. I asked for a Gin & Tonic at the beginning of my meal and never received it.
Everything was excellent from the Valet to park the car, our very knowledgeable waiter and of course the food.
BUT it was very noisy ....so many loud conversations going on made it hard to have a relaxed visit with our guests
Amazing restaurant, service was amazing and very welcoming. Definitely exceeded our expectations in all ways.
Excellent experience. Very romantic. Food was delicious, service was fantastic, would aboslutely reccomend to a friend. Only thing to consider is that it was very loud in the restaurant from other diners.
Always fabulous. Our waiter Manny was excellent. This place understands service better than any other restaurant in town.
Excellent as always !
Food and service is super! Amazing as always!!
This is a great restaurant. The staff are friendly, very knowledgeable about both the food and the extensive wine list, and very attentive without being intrusive. Spotless white tablecloths, linen napkins, free valet parking - Giovanni’s offers everything a great restaurant should. The food, from appetizer to dessert, was consistently delicious. I would recommend the veal parmigiana and the cheesecake!
Great food and service we go every couple of weeks never disappointed
I loved everything about this restaurant. The waiter was outstanding, the food was amazing and all together just great.
I brought an Italian-American friend from New Jersey here... again... She says it blows away her next-favourite Italian restaurant. She makes a point of going there at least once whenever she comes to Ottawa. Yet again the ambiance, staff, and food was world-class.
Never disappointing. Food excellent. Service impeccable.
This the fourth visit to Giovanni's in the past year and a bit. Each time the food and the service have been wonderful. On the downside each time the noise level in the restaurant has been very loud with large tables of 6 and 8 celebrating boisterously. The restaurant is divided into 2 parallel sections and it may be an idea to put the large parties on one side and have the other side with the balcony for smaller more intimate diners who may wish to have a conversation over dinner. We now wonder if we should look for an alternative go to restaurant.
Loved it! No complaints. Great service. Excellent food. Nice vibes.
This restaurants is the best of all that we visited recently, it was impressive and it was more than we expected.
Attention to detail, quality of the food, service. All was outstanding.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we enjoyed a flawless service in the luxury Giovanni's Ristorante. Staff were extremely pleasant and made us feel welcome. Prices are higher than other establishments but well worth it based on the quality of service and food. We have dietary restrictions and they were very accommodating. We went on a Tuesday evening so noise level was to a minimum. Highly recommend it for any special occasion!
Awesome dinner. Everything was excellent. Angelo provides top notch service. Thanks!
Always good there great food and great service. We love that they will change sauces to fit your liking and that they have the valet service
Great food, excellent service. Although it can be a little loud it is worthy.
Overall the experience was great as always! The food was excellent. My only complaint is that the temperature of the restaurant could have been improved. It was really cold.
Best Italian Resturant in Ottawa ... and one of my top 5 Italian restaurants on continent including the US ... and I have been to a lot of the best!
Service was excellent and attentive. Food was well presented, appealing and delicious. The ability to share plates (1/2 portions each) made it possible to taste a multi service meal without wasting food. A little pricy but well worth it.
Visited Giovanni's for our first wedding anniversary. The ambiance was romantic though slightly noisy because of a large group. However, things quieted shortly after they left. The service was outstanding and our waiter provided us with great recommendations for wine and food. We almost got too much, if not for the recommendation to cut out a dish. The food was fantastic with sizeable, filling portions that left us full but wanting more. Noting our special occasion, the staff also provided us with a complementary dessert and limoncello - a pleasant surprise. We'll definitely be going back!
Paul was a great waiter
Highly recommend this as a place for a business lunch.
Amazing food and portions are enormous. Great place.
The standard for perfection in the national capital region
