Giovanni's Ristorante - Detroit
Specialty wines and spirits complement each course. Guests enjoy tableside conversation with Frances Cannarsa Truant, the “padrona” or perhaps a visit from Chef Randy Truant. The atmosphere is convivial, warm, and aromatic. The staff is seasoned, the service impeccable.
The Godfather Room is the ideal setting for a business meeting.
The Wine Room offers a touch of romance for that special evening.
The Main Dining Room is a perfect place to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary.
There’s a Speak Easy in the back for the ultimate private party.
Simply looking for a wonderful meal? Come for lunch or dinner.
The place never, ever, disappoints. Great food, prepared as it should be and served by a caring and courteous staff. A+++
The server did a good job letting us know the specials and the food was excellent.
Very intimate- service outstanding- you can linger over dinner and feel like you’ve had a wonderful evening!
Our service was great and the people at front desk were very accommodating.
The food and service were top notch!
It was a lovely birthday celebration! I enjoyed it very much. My food was very good. My son selected a very nice wine too!
Food was absolutely amazing.
what an amazing place - we have not been there in 20+ years - we will be back with our friends (a party of 10)
Consistently exceptional. Another great meal and service.
Great bday for sister they loved the food and we were able to sit there and reminise after lunch they allowed us when lunch was over. Thk u to Linda great desert too.
It was amazing. The decor, ambiance, server, and incredible food. Our server Nadeem was everything.
Food was amazing! Had to wait about 25 mins with reservations but it was a busy Saturday night. Would definitely go back again.
It was perfect for a celebration dinner. Would recommend to anyone.
Outstanding! Food was cooked to perfection. Service impeccable.
After waiting 30 minutes for a table—and we did have a reservation—we were seated. Why have a reservation if it really isn’t a reservation? Not sure if we will be back.
Very disappointed with our experience. This was our favorite italian place in Metro Detroit for close to 20 years and our go to place for special occasions. Last night, service was slow, and the waitresses were actually rude. Food was good (especially the pasta, as always!) but the veal was almost cold when served and unappealing. Our birthday celebration was not acknowledged outside of the greeting - not expecting a free dessert but maybe a candle? Also we were upcharged for every salad, soup, substitution to the extent of 50% extra of expected bill without being told/asked in advance! Sadly, after 20 years, we will not be back.
Excellent food and service. My wife and I had Veal Picatta and Veal Saltimbocca. Both very good. Highly recommend.
Another wonderful dining experience at one of our favorite restaurants.
Co tiniest to be one of the best restaurant experiences anywhere in Metro Detroit. Superb food, with service, and comfort, to match. Amazing that for so many decades it has maintained excellence on all fronts. Simply an excellent choice for couples, guests, or by yourself. Virtually flawless.
Fantastic food!!!! Always a great go to spot before heading downtown
Giovanni's remains my benchmark for Italian dining in Detroit. Our recent dinner included Calamari Fritti, Pasta e Fagioli, Braciole di Manzo, and Saltimbocca alla Romana; all were outstanding, as was the service. Thank you Chris.
Went for my son's birthday. Wonderful place. He loved it.
STAFF IS ALWAYS EAGER TO PLEASE. FOOD IS CONSISTENTLY GOOD QUALITY.
Giovanni’s never disappoints. The food is outstanding - best calamari ever! The service is exceptional. We eat at Giovanni’s often and have never had a bad meal.
Food was fabulous! Table had the calamari for a appetizer - was amazing! Lasagna was a hit with the thin layers of pasta sheets. Shrimp pasta dish was offered with spinach linguine, they let me substitute for angel hair which was perfect! Was a great place to spend time with friends.
Almost Everything was perfect. The soup was so flavorful. The appetizer was tender and perfect size. The lasagna was award winning. My only complaint is the table bussers. They were a little too eager between each course. Let the gust finish before you try and clear things away.
Sharon, our waitress was WONDERFUL! Efficient, friendly, engaging.
Although the food was wonderful, the description of my salmon dinner was not reflective of the dish presented to me.
Wonderful evening full of exceptional food and fantastic service. Can’t wait to return!
Great food and service! Calamari was incredible!
Food is amazing! Staff is amazing as well. Would go back!
Zuppa de pesce with Sambucca is outstanding. Food consistently great, good service, Cindy, the Dining room Manager, is top-notch. Nice wine selection.
Our dining experience at Giovanni's was exceptional. The homemade pasta was fabulous as was the service provided by Natalie.
It was a very nice dinner with our daughter.
Our experience waa disappointing tonight. Our server only told us 2/3 of the appetizer specials. However, she did not share any of the main dish specials. We had to hear it across the way from another server. The food tonight was extremely bland. $100 later, we could have dined much closer to home. Not impressed.
Service and food was excellent. Make your reservations a week prior at least.
Great food and amazing service!!
