Giovanni's is an amazing restaurant. The food is high quality and they spare no expense! The manager always comes and says hello. Our waiter Karsten is amazing! The service is excellent and you never run out of water! We always go for birthdays and they put a big sparkler on the dessert. I highly recommend this place!
Never had a burrata so awesome and the prosciutto, incredible!
You have to go at least once in a lifetime. It’s a great experience, great staff, served like princesses and prince. It’s a great place to go for any kind of event! Loved it!
Excellent traditional Italian. Homemade pastas. Plenty of great wines. Always great food. A bit loud sometimes but overall a good dining environment.
Love this place! The food is excellent and the service impeccable!
Prix beaucoup trop élevé pour de la nourriture somme toute correcte. Serveurs onctueux qui oublie que mon épouse fête son anniversaire de naissance. Ambiance agréable mais beaucoup trop bruyant. On peut trouver beaucoup mieux pour bien meilleur prix.
We enjoyed a fantastic meal. Great service. We will be back.
Excellent service and beautiful decor. Food was good but pricey. Would recommend for a special dinner out.
I went there on New Year's Eve. My first time and on the recommendation of a friend. Very noisy but it was New Years so that was to be expected.
The food was exceptional (lamb and steak) but the serving temp was a little on the just warm side but it wasn't a big deal for us. I'm sure the kitchen was a mad scramble all night.
The one negative thing I'll say was that the service was very rushed. I even asked the server to slow down mid-meal but to no avail. When we were done the bill was presented (unasked for) only 5 minutes after the last bite. I know it was New Year's eve, VERY busy and they want to turn over the tables but it was disappointing just the same.
All in all, I'll definately go back on a quieter night. The food was that good.
We were seated with a lunch menu but were charged at diner prices. When we pointed out an $8 difference the manager on duty told us it was our fault because we did not order before 3pm. Sadly that cost our waiter his tip. Hopefully the management will reconsider their response fir future guests.
This is not just a restaurant outing it is an experience!! Service and food are over the top. The ambiance is very classy.
Service was impeccable! Food was amazing! I would definitely go back.
Best meal in Ottawa as far as service and food is great would highly recommend this place
Great time! Our waiter was amazing!!
Karsten was so pleasant and chatty, definitely helped make our departmental Christmas dinner extra enjoyable. He was very efficient and helpful. He wasn't our server, he was our buddy for the night! Thank you :)
Giovanni’s is a must if you are in Ottawa! We make a point of going every trip. The food is always 100%. The staff is the most amazing. Very attentive and a pleasure to talk to!
It does not matter the day of the week it is always full!
Great food AS USUAL
Absolutely amazing food, fresh& tasty. Great portions too which is nice to see in an exclusive restaurant. The service was great, plenty of attention and managers checking on your satisfaction. The decor is rich, the atmosphere is warm. The prices are very high though so it's not an every day kind of a restaurant.
Went here for my husband's birthday. Was a great meal. Thank you.
Service was top drawer. This restaurant is probably the best Italian food in Ottawa hands down.
But on this particular occasion, the plates for the main dish were all stone cold which resulted in the food not staying hot for long. Small potatoes I know, and there's no pleasing some people, however, I will be back ...
We had a lovely dinner to celebrate our engagement at Giovanni's. The level of service was outstanding! Our server made recommendations and was able to answer all our questions.
Over rated, too expensive for what you get. The place is way too noisy as well
Had a great meal with friends on my 60th Birthday! Treated very well during our entire visit. The service from Lewis was very good & the food was delicious, as usual! Thank you Giovanni’s once again!
Best fine dining in Ottawa and I really recommend this restaurant
The food and the service was excellent, It was my granddaughter's 18th birthday and without any request on our part they produced a candle in her dessert. Great evening.
Food was amazing service was good the noise was to much for me
In general a great meal.
- Spectacular Service.
- Excellent food
- Somewhat overpriced.
Took my girlfriend here for dinner. Incredible experience. Loved the food, and our waiter was on top of everything... And funny too!
Absolulelty amazing!! Some of the best food and service I have ever had!
Un-Fu*&ing-real. I have never had a bad experience there.
I don't think I've put this in a review before but "Very professional"
We had phenomenal service and the food was absolutely amazing. It was my first time visiting and certainly won’t be my last!
It was very tranquil
The food was excellent though would have appreciated the waiter telling us the special was $75 before recommending it over a $35 meal. It would have been important to know the cost.
Everything was delicious. The only problem that I had was that there were crab shells in my meal so I wasn't able to finish it. Even though, it still had great flavour. The service was outstanding and the staff are so polite and kind. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service enjoyed in good company
Food was excellent and so was the service. The only downside was the room felt a little bit cramp. I would recommend this restaurant.
First Timers. Great food and service was excellant
A bit pricey
Restaurant is very loud and tables are close together
Would definitely return
Amazing service from start to end.
The food was great as well. However, it was a bit crowded and tight but that was minimal impact on the overall experience.
Definitely worth going there for special occasions.
