Some restaurants are supposed to be a secret. You find them, you tell your friends and you hope that no-one else finds out. Giovanni's is one of these restaurants. It's as Italian as restaurants come, serving up simple, authentic food, but it's real strength lies in the atmosphere. This is an intimate restaurant, richly lit, where you can sit with your date and be assured the waiters will make you feel comfortable and remember your name. If you don't believe us, just check out the photographs on the wall full of comments from Giovanni's famous clientèle. Enjoy this restaurant...just don't tell the world.
