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.

Tastes 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 11, 2021
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!

First time here and it was great! The ambience was wonderful, our server Garrett was great! The cucumber martinis were delicious! We ate: the caprese salad (the tomatoes could've been redder... I'm not a fan of pink tomatoes but know they're not in season now. And perhaps thinner slices of tomatoes because the ratio was off). The ... read more

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. This is unacceptable. We are 67 and we go out on Wednesday as there are not a lot of people eating at this time. It is mandated that all person ... read more

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.

What a treat. Rockwall can be pretty boring in food quality unless you want to drop a dime. This place though. Wow. The ambiance is comfortable, light, earth toned with much being wood grain.

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.
Patrick Roberts via - Oct 9, 2020
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

We've eaten here a few times now and the food and service has been excellent each time. Some of the best Italian food in DFW! The first time we asked for a recommendation on dessert and ended up with the walnut crusted apple pie, we've gotten it every time since it was so good!
Josiah Oliver via - Feb 16, 2020
We enjoyed a great Valentine's dinner at Giovanni's in Rockwall. Fast and friendly service. Flat iron steak and spicy sausage rigatoni were both very good. Large, filling portions. Chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. Great spot for a special lunch or dinner. Full bar as well.
