Wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. It was my husband's birthday Wine (#35 off their wine list) their house salad dressing and my husband's favorite "seafood Nicole" with marinara sauce. Wonderful food and our server Paul is outstanding as always. He was very busy a and another great server Heather took care of us until he was available

This place has been around for as long as I can remember, most likely over 30 years. It has great food and service and a nice bar. We always go there around Christmas time. It is my wife's favorite place in the area.

My husband works nearby, so I try to meet him for lunch. Lunch prices are reasonable. We have our favorites. Today we had Chicken Sinatra. That's a chicken breast flattened with ham, mozzarella cheese, a slice of tomato in a white wine sauce with mushrooms. A side salad with delicious house dressing and good bread. Paul, our server, is always... More

This was our second time dining here and the food was as good as we remembered. The cheese ravioli were delicious - obviously homemade and huge. The salad was fresh and generous. Our server was pleasant and attentive, bringing us more bread during our meal.

We always enjoy dining here because the food is so consistently superb in taste, quality and presentation. We always request Heather as our server because she is professional, pleasant and accommodating. We started with the Giovanni house salad and legendary dressing. It was cold, fresh and on target delicious. Tonight I ordered the lasagna which came in a huge boat... More

Never had a bad meal, hostess, Donna is very pleasant and tries hard to make you feel welcomed. Our server, Paul, is friendly and one of the best along with Heather! I have to tell you we have been going there since they opened and love it. I always have plenty to eat. Their homemade salad dressing to awesome.

This restaurant has been in the same location for decades and is a go-to place for wonderful Italian food. If you go on a Saturday night, they have a small band that plays music from the 50's.
