Our visit to Giovanni in Rockwall was on Saturday night, we didn’t make a reservation ahead of time, but the Hostess London was super nice and was able to squeeze us in without waiting long at all. We had Sean as our server, he welcomed us with his big smile, and walked us through the menu, giving recommendations based on his favorit ... read more

Giovannis never disappoints, the cleanliness of the store, the ambiance, the music just adds to the excellence and professionalism of the staff. We have visited numerous times, have had a few different servers, all have been knowledgeable about menu items, and preparation. The Lasagna special is killer, the Tortellini is out of this ... read more

I recently dined at Giovanni’s with a group of friends, and I have to say, this place is amazing! The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, the service prompt, and the food is to die for. Our waiter, Jeremy, was great — very friendly and attentive, explained the menu and specials to us, and answered all of our questions. I will definite ... read more

This place has gotten better since it opened, I originally left a lower Review but went back to give it a second shot. Nice work to the folks here for improving over the last year - I love it!

This is our go to place if we can't figure out what we want. Great brunch and there's healthy choices that are mouthwatering. My favorites are the shaved ribye crostini, stuffed avocado, ahi tuna salad, and salmon egg Benedict.

My all time favorite restaurant. Avocado risotto is the best thing ever along with the Crab stuffed shrimp.
Reese Anderson via - Jan 24, 2022
Had a delicious dinner celebrating our friends birthday. The staff was attentive and our server, Arianna made great recommendations. We will definitely be back! Be sure to try the parpadelle, GF tortellini, gnocchi and lemmoncello cake for dessert.

This was a first time experience. My wife and I came here for a lunch date. There was no wait for a table. The staff provides great customer. They accommodated my specific dining requests due to my health issues. The background music consisted of some old skool R&B that makes you want to dance. The ambience is perfect. The food arriv ... read more

Yummy food and a great atmosphere for friend or date night. Doesn't have a kids menu or no pizza. So I don't recommend bringing little kids.

Amazing food and stellar service! Priced appropriately for the menu and atmosphere. The best Old Fashioned I've ever had.
Alexis LeBlanc via - Jan 3, 2022
Very nice quality of food, good flavor and fresh ingredients. Our waiter was excellent although a little rushed off his feet due to short staff, but that's not his fault. Have eaten there before so can vouch for consistency of food quality.

Fantastic food. Try the shaved ribeye appetizer. Delicious.

Exceptional lunch! Sean is an excellent server. He suggested the stuffed shrimp and crab cakes. They were delicious! For dessert we ordered The Tiramisu absolutely wonderful!
Rosa Gutierrez via - Dec 19, 2021
I’ve had Bolognese on multiple continents, and I can tell you that nestled along the waters edge of Rockwall, TX is HANDS-DOWN, the best. The pasta is made in house and the flavors are top notch. Extremely impressed with Giovanni’s. The waitstaff is friendly too.
Austin Texas via - Dec 15, 2021
Always amazing service, great wine recommendations, attentive staff at the bar and in the dining room, and the food is beyond good. Highly recommend!

The Pier is a great place to spend time at. There are about 10 restaurants here and 6 of them are pretty good. We tried the Italian restaurant Giovanni because it had the shortest wait time. They wanted us to eat outside but it was too cold and we needed in door seats. This place can get loud. It was hard to hear us talk. Date orde ... read more

After reading a few reviews, we decided to give Giovannis’s a shot and wow this place did not disappoint. We started off with fried stuffed avocado, escargot and the shaved ribeye crostini, just to highlight a few choices, absolutely outstanding. Our main course we ordered off the specials menu, the pistachio crusted rack of lamb, wh ... read more

Was visiting the DFW area and went to Giovanni’s with a bunch of my buddies for dinner - and let me tell you, the place is absolutely phenominal. Mind you, this is coming from someone that typically frequents the best italian restaurants the NYC metropolitan area has to offer. The tuna appetizer was delicious, so good that my buddy ... read more

Second time here and had a fantastic time. Crab cakes were decent, house cab was pretty tasty, ordered the special which was a lobster lasagna and wife had a veggie fettuccine dish.

Exceptional service and great quality food- the vibes were nice and romantic (also great for kids as my 3 year old loves the desert and chicken fingers). On top of that the owner was amazing and he is very attentive to his guests- we will be back soon!
jessica betts via - Aug 13, 2021
First time here, definitely love the vibe of the restaurant, the initial bread and oil were great, high quality olive oil off the bat was a good sign. Got our drinks relatively quick, and the Bloody Mary was great, the server was attentive for the most part. He didn’t refill our waters or ask how the food was and then when I received ... read more

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.
