I have eaten here at least 6 times in the past year for every special occasion that came up and some I invented to go here. Their food and ambiance is top notch. Their sevice is better than other restaurants. This is one of the best restaurants in town and one of the most wonderful authentic italian places I've ever eaten. The chef is from Florence Italy and the owner is a native Italian as well. They do not cater to the Olive Garden crowd, so if that is what you want, go somewhere else. If you're a foodie, don't miss this one!

The WORST + most over priced restaurant in Nashville. $90 for 2 waters, 2 cold pasta dinners and a pizza dinner ??? Go to Valentino's instead. Don't set foot in Giovanni Ristorante. Ever. 1. They brought dinners 1 minute after setting pizza appetizer on table. Two $25 pasta dinners sat cold as we ate the pizza. Pizza was good. 2. Pasta is lackluster and mediocre at best. HORRIBLE value. I realize you get what you pay for and better food is priced accordingly but this menu is so overpriced its offensive. I regularly eat at the best restaurants in town and this is definitely not one of them. 4. Want bread or rolls? Well you better ask because $25 pasta doesn't come with bread. At least ours didn't. 3. If you want to spend stupid money on dinner to impress a date or client, you're better off going to elsewhere. You'll look like a fool for taking them here. ""A fool and his money are always parted"" was meant for Giovanni Ristorante. NEVER EVER EAT AT GIOVANNI RISTORANTE IN NASHVILLE!
