"just like your [Italian] Mama makes..."
My title is a quote from one of Giovanni's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria's reviews. My husband and I went for a late dinner last night and had such a fun time.
When I first heard Ruben talking about Giovanni's I just assumed it was a pizzeria where his townie friends hung out. I deeply regret that thought now that I have experienced the atmosphere, which comes with great conversation and the nicest staff I've ever dealt with at a local chain.
I had a couple of these (left)- I don't know what it was, but it was very sweet and my favorite color :)
I also had their Chicken Parmesan (Dinner portion), which comes with a house salad and garlic bread. I did not get my garlic bread, but
the rest of my experience (not to mention large portion sizes) was going so great I didn't even realize it until today. No real complaint there , but I will be craving the bread now. Also, we sat at the bar so I can understand the bartender forgetting if they do not usually serve food and just drinks.
If you ever come here, please please have their house dressing with your salad. It's also available for purchase to take home and I honestly think it is AMAZING!
Ruben had a stuffed pizza - I took a bite and it was pretty good. The texture was perfect.
