Nous avons découvert ce restaurant par hasard, mais ce fut un réel bonheur. Cuisine vraiment excellente, des gnocchis maison à tomber ! & des rations hyper copieuses. Je n'ai pas réussi à finir mes lasagnes. Tout le personnel vraiment adorable & professionnel. Je conseille vivement ce restaurant, un peu cher tout de même pour les Français que nous sommes... mais nous etions 3 adultes, nous avons pris une bouteille de Prosecco & ensuite entrée plat & dessert.View more

Very overated. Not worth the money. Poured us non stop soda water we never asked for & billed 10cad each of us. Very greedy. Im very clearly a man with long hair & a black beard, manager called me "madam". It was definitely intentional. Food is meh with some good antipastis but in that price range nothing exceptionnal. My 69cad lamb was overcooked. Ottawa have a lot of better bang-for-your-bucks, friendler place, in this high price range. Service was not adapted to that price point too, borderline condescending.View more

My wife & I have been visiting Giovanni's in Ottawa for a long time because we love their food - it's the best in Canada! But lately, something's changed. A few months ago, we went there for lunch with a friend. We had burrata, prawns, & sea bass - all delicious, like always. We even got a dozen mini cannolis to take home, a little treat for later. But when we got the bill, I was surprised - the prices had increased significantly. The food at Giovanni's is still amazing, no doubt about that. But the higher prices caught me off guard. It made me wonder if it's still the same great value we used to enjoy. If you're willing to spend a bit more for top-notch food, Giovanni's is still fantastic. Just be prepared for the higher bill.View more

We were a group of 4 from Montreal who set out to shop in Ottawa for the day. As we got hungry at the end of our day, we looked online for a good Italian restaurant to dine at. We came upon this jewel not knowing what to expect at all. We were not dressed adequately for a beautiful restaurant on a busy Saturday night & had no clue as to the wonderful place this was. We had no reservations but the owner went out of his way for this group of Montrealers & made sure we had a place to eat. He accommodated us in the most respectful manner & made sure we were comfortable. Our waiter was very nice as well as the entire staff. Now about the food, we all ate so well. Everything was so delicious from the antipasti to primi piatti to secondi piatti & caffès & dolce too!! The atmosphere is so cozy & quaint. Thank you for your hospitality & we will definitely come back very soon!!!View more

Spectacular is the best way you can describe this place! Not sure why I have never been to this little Gem before. From the moment you step into the entrance & see all the celebrities, stars, athletes pictures on the wall to the moment they help you put your coat on when you leave this place is by far the best restaurant I have been to EVER!!! Food - top notch, service - top notch, I cannot find a fault if I tried. You will not get better food or service anywhere. I am buying my whole family gift cards so they can experience what's it's like to dine at a REAL restaurant!View more

Upscale classic Italian delights. Calamari is light & crispy. Burrata with cherry tomatoes & prosciutto is fresh & tasty. Veal scaloppini accompanied by fettuccine aglio e olio was very good. Slightly overpriced. Service was flawless. Thanks Tony & Mr Nino.View more
