Giovanni's Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar

3 out of 5

I am Italian so I wanted to try this restaurant. I had the pasta Bolognese which was just ok. My husband had the spaghetti with clams which had way too much red pepper flakes. Our waiter was subpar. Never asked if we wanted another drink, or needed anything. I ordered a cappuccino. As he raced by our table I asked for sugar for my coffee. The lady sitting at the next table handed me the sugar from her table saying "no telling when he'll be back." Apparently, they had the same experience!

We had breakfast here. Our order was mixed up but we didn't say anything. When we were about ready to leave the head waiter tried bringing us our original order...we stated we already ate. She looked at another waiter was said who's order is this? We didn't go back as the food was just ok.
