Really good!

In my opinion the restaurant is amazing and the price and the ambiance are really good. Besides the pizza (great!) you must try the homemade Spinach Ravioli. For the cold days the lentil soup is delicious! As a starter I suggest the eggplant parmegiano: absolutely delicious!!! If you want to try a dessert I really recommend the Key Lime Tart: wonderful! It is a very nice place to go, but if you decide to order yo... view more

tired of servers writing their own reviews

if you've written a good review of this not authentic italian restaurant, in my opinion ""YOU WORK THERE"" OR OWN IT.. SAVE YOUR MONEY . i was not impressed with the food at all, i made the server take back roar veal,,smelly seafood.. they just removed the pasta and sauce and brought back the same smelly seafood.. i hate to make a scene at a dining experience but this was an experience i will never repeat again... view more

I beg to differ

Visited this place with my wife recently. I ordered the seafood linguini and told the waiter I didn't want any butter on it. In my opinion no authentic Italian restaurant puts butter in it's seafood pasta anyway but I just wanted to be sure. The pasta arrived and smelled and tasted overwhemingly like...Butter! I sent it back and waited while my wife tried to eat slowly and when my dish came back out it tasted muc... view more

THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD

This restaurant is outstanding and one of my favorites. I'm one of the few people born and raised in NYC and I have seen good Italian restaurants disappear. Giovanna's captures what a good Italian meal should taste like. I've tried almost everything on the menu, and I can honestly say it's all delicious. Their marinara sauce is fresh, light, and savory. Infact, you can taste the freshness in everything. From appetize... view more

PLEASE give Giovanna's a Chance!

I have honestly NEVER written a review on a website before but I loved my meal here so much and I want this place to succeed so badly that I felt I had to write this. I ate here for the first time tonight. I have always been a big fan of Nick's on the Upper East Side (94th and 2nd Ave.) and the head chef, Divino, is a former Nick's chef. Giovanna's is in fact named after his adorable 10 year old daughter. We got the... view more

The Perfect Atmosphere!

Last week I decided to walk around East Harlem since I have heard such good things about the area lately. We walk by 100 street and we found this really beautiful restuarant. Since we have been walking around for a while we got really hungry so me and my two friends decided to go in. We ended up sitting in the bar to chat with the bartender who was really nice and entertaining. I ended up getting my favorite Penne ... view more

Now I have a ... view more

Perfect Atmosphere

I live next door to Giovanna's, and have to admit, I walked past the restaurant's charming window front for months. In November I decided to stop in for a glass of wine. Since that night, I've become a regular! Giovanna's wine list is complete, and reasonably priced. What is more important, though, is where you enjoy your wine. Divino and his wonderful staff have created a classy but relaxed atmosphere. Come with a f... view more
