Came during Friday night expecting a long wait, but immediately got placed within 5 minutes despite lack of reservation. For a lack of better words, food and presentation were superb. Price: appropriate. -Do try the specials. We got the pistachio crusted lamb rack with mushroom risotto. Hot Damn it was good. -Sad about the crab cake ... read more

Great food selections. AUTHENTIC Italian food, not Italian-American. I commend the chef! Presentation of dishes are nice. Very consistent. Food is FRESH, FRESH, FRESH. Best selection, in my opinion was the Ahi Tuna. AMAZING. Lobster Risotto was fabulous. Actually all the selections we had were very good. Service was FANTASTIC!!! O ... read more

The food is very good! The staff were top notch and the atmosphere was relaxing, if not peaceful. This was my first trip and I am looking forward to the next one.

This place is amazing!!! We went here on a Saturday afternoon and for some crazy reason they weren't busy! My wife and I had an amazing 5 star experience, with amazing pasta, and drinks for a great price! We will be going back for sure and spreading the word about this place. Thank you!

Found this restaurant on Saturday but couldn’t get a reservation. So got to try it out yesterday. Great place, happy hour applies to outside as well. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Early dinner before doing the sunset cruise with Sail with Scott.

I had the amazing opportunity to eat at Giovanni's in the harbor. We were deciding where to eat and after learning that it was owned by a Marine (Semper Fi) this Marine family had to go! I had actually gone when they first opened. While the food was amazing, I left hungry. I hadn't been back because I wasn't sure the cost was worth ... read more

Great food, environment, and service. The only down side is that if you get there close to closing time, they tell you to order and encourage you to sit at the bar- despite someone wanting a romantic date night evening. Maybe consider offering the option to allow those who want a table to move from the bar once the place starts to cl ... read more

Great food and wide variety of drinks. The staff is super friendly. Can be hard to get in during lunch rush and Sunday traffic, but usually worth the wait.
Nicholas Batson via - Apr 14, 2021
Overall Awesome... Everything from the food to the services to the atmosphere was over the top. If your around the rockwall area pier or just want to get out stop by and grab dinner and then the beautiful scenery at night. You won't regret it. The lake scenery adds to the experience.

ate here for my bday this weekend and it was the best tasting food I’ve had in awhile. Prices are up there, but totally worth it in my opinion! Our server, Luis, was quick and polite. We got our food fairly quickly and it was all so amazing and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Definitely will be back!

Giovanni. I've been searching for an authentic Italian restaurant in the eastern 'burbs of Dallas for quite some time. This is not a run of the mill crummy pizza and salad place. At Giovanni they have stellar meals and they make their pasta in house. You can tell the difference. I had the Calamari and the Seafood Cioppino. Both were ... read more

Been wanting to come here for awhile so we came at lunch. It was wonderful. My husband had the shaved prime rib sandwich with truffle fries and I had the stuffed shrimp on top of creamy risotto, both delicious! Complimentary warm bread was so good and they served it with oil and balsamic vinegar. Staff was awesome and wearing masks.

This would have been a 5 as the food is fantastic and the service is wonderful; however, our waitress was not wearing a mask. Also we think it was the manager who was also not wearing a mask.

We had dinner on Friday 23rd of Oct. The service was absolutely the best. They were attentive without being intrusive and very pleasant. Two of our party had Birthdays and were served the best cannoli I've ever tasted.After month's of silence the sounds of happy people enjoying the evening was welcome.

Very nice restaurant, service was friendly, informative and very quick. The lobster fettuccini was beautifully prepared with nice spices and 1/2 dollar sized scallops! The pancetta pasta was wonderful as well.The prosciutto tasted a little stale and very salty, my only complaint.

First time here. Love the location and ambience. Feels like a nice local neighborhood place. We had the meatball appetizer with polenta and it was very good. Then ordered the Lobster ravioli. The flavors were amazing!! I needed more bread to get all of the creamy sauce! Pasta was a bit too al dente for my taste, but I still at ... read more
