I love this place

I love this place. If you want to feel like you have stepped into the relaxing ristorante of italy, this is a great place. sure, it's not very pretty, but the food is delicious. I will admit that service can be slow, but the food makes up for it. The antipasti salad is divine. they have a large menu to choose from, and its usually hard to pick, but i've never ever had a miss on quality or disappointment with the food... view more

Cute hole in the wall

This is a cute, hole in the wall restaurant that provides large portions and pretty tasty food. I went with a group and we all had different pasta dishes. The bolognese was good and the pesto and veal parmesan dishes were great. This is a good place to come with friends if you want something that feels homey and low-key. We'll probably go back.

Super tasty

I just stopped in last weekend (for old times sake) while driving down PCH and reluctantly shared (I wanted to eat my OWN sandwich) a hot pastrami sandwich with my husband. It was quite large and the meat was super tasty without a lot of fat that pastrami usually has. The bread was perfectly warm and toasty without being too hard to bite into. It was nice to sit outside and people watch while sipping on a Stella wai... view more

Service is great and friendly

I have always loved Spumoni. I didn't know I'd never really had it until we stopped at this gem of a place on the Pacific Coast Highway in Encinitas. While daytrippin' the PCH, we stopped there for a submarine sandwich (very good) and bowl of minestrone soup (excellent and plentiful). My wife reluctantly agreed to share some spumoni with me and we ended up fighting for it! Their service is great and friendly, it ... view more

Massive calzones!

Had the calzone, it was massive, I only finished half of it and got the rest to go. It looked like they had a lunch deli selection available, I might go back for a sandwich sometime.\r \r The wine menu is kinda pricey when compared to the rest of the menu.

Delicious

could the search be over??? ok, that is a bit exaggerated but this is the best attempt at an Italian sub that I have had on the West Coast. Disclaimer, that is all I have had from Giovanni's so I cant speak for the rest of the food, but this place does feel like a legit back east italian deli/restaurant... also, regarding the prices, people in san diego are cheap and broke... if you want a cheap sandwich go to subw... view more

Brought a tear to my eyes

Only food that has ever brought a tear to my eyes. I couldn't believe my taste buds. It's my new favorite place. AMAZING. gourmand! Honest to god opinion, those who have spoken negatively are not rating the food. the food is phenomenal. The menu is just a suggestion..you can ask for exactly what you had in Venice last time you were there and their cook will whip it up. neat atmosphere. North county's BEST KEPT S... view more

Excellent Authentic italian food!

Excellent Authentic Italian food! Pizza = yummy... perfect crust, seasoning, sauce, toppings, everything. Eggplant Parm = delicious Last time I went I got the Linguine w/clams in a white wine garlic butter sauce.... the bread is good when drowned in sauce. The setting is different, after passing the tables outside clad with the old red n white tablecloths, you walk into a deli basically... the seated inside r... view more

Terrible food! Bland and disgusting!

We really wanted to like this restaurant. It looks inviting, but we found the food to be bland, lacking in flavor and originality. The sauces were not at all appealing and our fish was basically inedible! The price was totally outrageous for the quality of food and service we received. Pasta sauces should have flavor and should be a pleasure to eat. The sauces served were uninspired and beyond cliche. Don't was... view more

GIOVANNI'S best authentic Italian in north county

I have to tell you about this original Italian restaurant in Encinitas CA. When you walk into this place you step into the kitchen to get to the dining room. Owner Vito, a Sicilian chef with 25 years of experience who instantly makes you feel at home, immediately greets you. Besides the traditional dishes that are in every Italian restaurant cooked by who knows who, here you get these fantastic specials that this ch... view more
