Giovanni's Restaurant Review: Crisp pizzas, garlicky chicken Florentine and more are served at this family-run eatery. Giovanni's doesn't accept reservations, so if you go on a Friday or Saturday night, expect a wait. But patience pays off, with home-cooked Italian in a no-frills setting. Start with mussels in spicy marinara sauce or fresh tomato bruschetta. The antipasto is a meal, with rolled Italian meats and cheeses on crisp greens with Giovanni's own vinaigrette. Noisy families share giant pizzas and calzones, regulars go for the pasta with ham, peas and mushrooms in tomato cream sauce or spaghetti ala carbonara. This location has a full bar, and a decent selection of wines and beers. Finish with a cannoli or tiramisu for a down-home Italian feast. Mangia!
