Giovanni's has always been about a top notch Italian restaurant experience for us. We love Giovanni's for special occasions and for when we need a little taste of what was once my family expectations for an Italian meal, growing up in New York. We chose to eat outside on a beautiful summer night, as did everyone else. Our server was busy, for sure. She explained that they were short staffed for the evening and we certainly recognize that this is the case everywhere, so we dealt with the slower than normal experience. The live music is a nice touch, but if you're gathering with friends that you haven't seen in a few weeks, its hard to catch up over the music. We'll better gauge our expectations for our next visit, so we can optimize our experience. The food is delicious and as close to an authentic Italian American experience in Greensboro, NC.
