Comfort Inn staff recommended the restaurant and we were extremely pleased. Many items to choose from. My Osso Bucco and my wife's Chicken Piccata were both very good.

Hadn't been here in a long while. (It can be pricey with a family of four.)Food was just as good as I remember it being. Love the tortellini rosa and my husband had pasta in a cream sauce with mushrooms. Yum.

Giovanni's can always be counted on for excellent Italian food with ample portions and friendly service. Visiting with friends and didn't feel rushed to leave. Staff took pictures and made us feel we were visiting in their home.

We resisted choosing an Italian restaurant for lunch, for fear the meal would be too heavy. The first place we stopped at had a Sunday buffet and a line. We didn't want to take the time to wait, as we still had several hours to...More

We decided to stay in SSM on the Canada side of the border. This was a nice pasta restaurant nearby our house. Very good lasagna meal and good cold local brew. Very nice interior, service was good.

Was expecting big things due to #1 ranking, food was very run of the mill, bland really. We ordered margarita pizzas which had no red sauce, and no wood fire or brick oven flavour, don't think if ever seen that from anywhere including Europe. The...More
