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

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

Excellent seafood, great atmosphere, must dine here when you come to lake Ray Hubbard.

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. Our waiter Sean was very attentive, polite, answered all our questions etc. My wife and I usually spend about $100 when we eat out and that's what this ... read more

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. 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.

I cannot properly express my love of the tasty food. It's simple... Just try it.
Amber Middleton via - Jun 15, 2021
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!
James Fire via - Jun 5, 2021
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 !
Adi Markovich via - Apr 17, 2021
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.

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.
