My husband loves to surprise me with a different restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary and this was his 2017 selection. I can say the food and service was fantastic!! Extensive wine list and the food was fabulous. My meal was like having dinner and desert at he same time. Loved the seafood board and pumpkin ravioli.

Do not miss the ciabatta crusted calamari steak as an appetizer! Have not had calamari prepared in this method before. Absolutely delicious. The waiter misunderstood and served us each this appetizer instead of splitting it. We were lucky, after trying the food, we both admitted that we would not have shared it. Yes, that good. We both also had the... More

Wow! I have lived in Shaker Heights for 6 years and never gave Giovanni's a chance because of its location in a non-descript office building in Beachwood. I went for my first experience this week and it was exceptional! The endive salad was crisp, tangy, and delicious. But the pappardelle with rabbit as to die for. Add to that the... More

Went here for dinner with a colleague and was promptly greeted and seated in the main dinning room. The decor and ambiance was very nice and the waiter came around promptly and took drink orders, told us about the menu and took our appetizer order. Drinks arrived and everything was humming along nicely. The sommelier took our wine order and... More

This was the first time in years I have been back to Giovanni's and I now wonder why I didn't go back sooner. Everything was wonderful, from being greeted when I walked in to the waiters to the food. I will definitely be back soon.

Even though I rated it a 4 it was more like a 3.5-3.75. It was a beautiful restaurant with great decor. The wait staff was pleasant but a little "off". I was in a party of four and my waitress got my drink order wrong despite my telling her twice. In addition, she took three drink orders despite the fact... More

First time at Giovanni's since their renovations were completed. The reviews at our table were mixed--two liked the new look and two liked the old look better, BUT all four of us LOVED the food! Service was a little slower than on previous trips but we were in no hurry and had a lovely evening. Expensive but worth it!

Amazing ambience, warm friendly accommodating staff. I had the Dover sole. Never had anything like the taste of it at any other restaurant. Great appetizers with a chef specialty salad. Baked Alaska dessert. All A+. Valet car service. Outside dining, and bar dining. The dining room must expensive $$$$$$ Would go back In a minute.
