Don't go there.
You don't have to grow up Italian to recognize bad Italian food. That is exactly what I had at Giovannis. The "specialties" that my wife and I had were watered down. It was almost as if they did not properly drain their noodles. We found the service to be very rude. I have had better Italian from a jar. There are some very good and authentic Italian restaurants in Greenville. This is not one of them!
The Best Authentic Italian Food in The South.
I grew up in NJ, in the heart of Soprano-land and consider myself an expert on Italian food. I've eaten in the best resteraunts in Little Italy on Mulberry Street, and have to say that Giovanni's is that good. You will not find a better red sauce on this side of the Mason-Dixie line! Gabriel, the owner of the resteraunt, has put together a very intimate ambience in which to enjoy a meal that you will never forget.
My personal recomendation is for the Sautaed Calimari over Marinara Sauce as an appetizer, and the Linginue with Shrimp and Clams over the red Giovanni sauce as your entree.
The portions served at Giovanni's are very generous, and the flavor will blow you away. I've introduced so many people to this great resteraunt and they all say that it is the best Italian food they have ever had.
