Giovannis restaurant should be in multiple places, so that many many people can experience the quality that this place offer. The food is excellent, and there is a large selection. The portions are huge and the wine choices is vast. The service is top notch and the atmosphere is superb. I can not describe any more better words,.... except, try it and you'll see.

With 3 young children, my husband and I don't get out much. Carrabba's used to be our restaurant of choice on our rare nights out, but no more. We love it Giovanni's!

Great place! Some what hidden but very cozy Italian restaurant off the E/W Connector...way better than Italian Oven down the street. I've had Spaghetti with Meatballs, Chicken Lasagna, Chicken Giovanni, and the Chicken Parmigiana, and all

consistently great. the mussels are the cleanest freshest ever. love the garlic white sauce with them and beautiful garlic rolls smothered with butter .Once had a tuna steak that could have been mistaken for a prime cut of beef ...ssssooooo goood. then the lightest batter on the snapper florentine that somehow stays crisp even with the buttery lemon broth plated with the spinach. this is a 5 star chef that you can enjoy without breaking the bank .on top of the top flite food you can relax in the comfortable casual atmosphere,.. the place is a true treasure .please stay for ever

I came from an Italian family with traditional Italian upbringing. I always compare things with the Italian culture including food taste and I challenge anybody to compare to the food my mama use to make (She passed away 5 years ago). When I saw Giovannis, I was curious, so I tried and to my great surprise, I found exactly what I was looking for. It seem like it brought back old taste that I have been missing from home. REALLY, REALLY GREAT GENUINE TASTE. I am glad I found this place. The secret my might be the sauce, or maybe the italian music playing. But whatever it is, the food taste delicious and incredible and my entire experience in this restaurant is amazing. I will keep on coming back, home to Giovannis.

I always venture in new restaurant and when a friend mentioned Giovanni's, I made a special trip to this place. I wish I had discovered this earlier. Everything is fantastic. I can tell the freshness of the food, and also see the freshness in the kitchen where you can see the chef cooking. The menu items contains the basic lasagna, manicotti, etc, but they have various specials, like the chicken lasagna, tilapia giovanni, florentines, and many more. There is great selection of beer and wine, and the desserts are Incredible. I would highly, highly recommend this restaurant to anybody. The service is excellent.

We heard about Giovannis through a friend and came in for the first time after the hectic holidays. When we entered the restaurant, it was full pack. The host told us that we would probably wait for 10 minutes to have a table, or we can sit in the bar counter. Since we were not in a hurry, we decided to wait. Within the next five minutes, we had our table ready.

We ordered for appetizer the calamari and caprese, then for the main entree, I had chicken lasagna (first I ever had), and my friend had the manicotti melanese (?), from one of their many specials. WOW, ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW. WHAT A GREAT TASTE. The portion is huge and it comes with salad and garlic bread.

We had a couple glasses of red wine which is just a perfect complement to our meal. We were so full, but still opted for dessert.

We shared the tiramisu and cheesecake. I am glad we did because the cheesecake is soooo smooth and delicious and the tiramisu is incredible.
On the next table, there was some kind of a birthday party, so when Giovanni's staff brought the cake and started to sing Happy Birthday, the rest of the customers ended up joining in the singing. Looks like everyone inside is happy and having a good time.

I have been so satisfied eating in Giovannis. The service, the food taste, the price and also atmosphere. I highly recommend this restaurant to all my friends and to anyone. GREAT GREAT PLACE.

I've always been a little weary of restaurants in strip plazas but being burned out on everything else in the local area, I decided to try Giovanni's. When I looked in the window, the place was empty but I decided to be brave. I opened the door I was warmly welcomed and seated. The first thing I noticed was how clean everything was and I like that the kitchen is in plain view of the dining room. I wasn't drinking this particular night but I took note that they had a nice selection of wine and beer.

I ordered the Chicken Marsala. While I was waiting I enjoyed a salad with the house dressing which delightfully engaged my taste buds along with the fresh garlic bread. I finished just in time to watch Chef Juan plate my dinner. The first thing I noticed when it was placed before me was that the sauce was much lighter in color than other establishments in which I have dined. The Marcala wine was present just enough to let you know it was there along with the mushrooms. The chicken was tender and perfectly cooked as was the accompanying pasta.

I could have been perfectly content to leave at that point until Giovanni told me about his fresh made deserts. I chose the cheesecake. Like everything in Giovanni's, the first bite you instantly know it's made there. It was creamy, excellent texture and flavor and the perfect end to dinner.

Oh and by the way, during the course of my dinner, that empty dining room filled with regular customers who raved about all their favorite dishes, how nice the place is, and how they are recommending it to all their friends. And now I'm going to be a regular and have broadcast the location to all my friends on the various social networks.

So even if you don't live in Austell, it would be worth the drive for some authentic Italian food.

My husband and I visited for the first time this past weekend and less than 12 hours later we were hooked up to IVs in the ER and had been diagnosed with food poisoning. We had a pleasant experience while at the restaurant, but afterwards was a nightmare. We determined we fell ill from my husband's order -- ceasar salad & chicken alfredo. I called and spoke with Giovanni himself to let him know of the food poisoning and he was extremely defensive and kept yelling "Absolutely not" into the phone. I was not trying to get a free meal (b/c we will never dine here again) or any reimbursement...only to notify him that we were sick. I was extremely disappointed in his reaction. Never once did he offer any apology or concern. I know food poisoning could happen at any restaurant at any time, but they were short-staffed on Sunday and serving a large group ahead of us so I feel they did not do their due dilligence in preparing our meal -- hence the illness. Long story short, if you need to lose 5 lbs. or so and don't mind knocking on death's door to get there, please eat at Giovanni's.

After reading all the reviews on here we finally went. Great decision. Giovanni greeted us upon arrival, he is a great host. The food is excellent. My wife had spinach ravioli, my brother had lobster ravioli with a piece of Italian sausage on the side. My daughter had spagetti and I had chicken parm. Everyone loved their food. My brother in law said the sausage was the best he has had, and he is from Jersey. Meals include garlic bread and salad (spinach leaves with your choice of dressing). Beer and wine are available and Coke products are served. As good as the food is, desert, in my opinion, was the best part of the meal. We each had our favorite, my daughter and I split a terra massu, my wife had the cheese cake and my brother in law had a cannoli. All are home made and all were out of this world. Giovanni says most everything they serve is made there, an exception was the Italian sausage. The terra massu was the best I have ever had. I am temped to buy a sheet pan of it, which they sell with a day or two notice, lol. A great host, great food and family, how else to spend dinner?

Giovannis meatballs are the very best I have had in years. Coming from an area of many Italian Immigrants in the north I have searched and searched for good Italian food here in the south. Giovannis is right off the e/w connector a ways past Lowes if your traveling west away from Atlanta and Vinnings/Smryna area. Look for the little strip mall where the sigh for BJs Warehouse is located. His red gravy is also stellar. Light and sweet and yummy. I buy his meatballs and bring them home to serve either whole (so moist) or mash them up with my own extra gravy and mushrooms and pour over angel hair pasta I cook up at home.

Fortunately we don't have to go far since Giovanni opened right in our area. We happened on Giovanni's charming little restaurant and have fallen in love with him and his incredible food! He and all his staff are so warm and friendly and always glad to see us. The service is impeccable and the food is simply marvelous. He uses a lot of his mother's recipes and every authentic dish is prepared with great pride. If you only get out to the Austell/Powder Springs area once, you MUST try the lasagna and the cheesecake. They are both the best we've ever had anywhere. We keep trying other things, all delicious, but we just can't get enough of Giovanni's lasagna! The pasta is thin and tender, the meat is juicy and the sauce is perfect-a much lighter tomato sauce than the typical American variety. We can't say enough wonderful things about this lovely man and his restaurant and especially his food!

Husband's co-worker recommended and we are glad he did. Giovanni was a great host and is obviously proud of his food (as he should be!). The food was fresh and plentiful. For the first time since moving to Georgia from NY, we were able to enjoy food that was perfectly cooked. The pasta was al dente, the shrimp crunchy and delicious, and the calamari was amazing (best we ever had!). Initially we thought the main course looked a little small but, I think it was just the deep bowl they were served in. We were full and even had left overs. DO NOT skip the dessert. Incredibly fresh and delicious. Might have to stop back just to pick up some cannolis, best in GA, maybe even in NY! We will be back!

My wife and I stumbled upon this little eatery the first day they opened. We continue to go there regularly and have started to take out. The food is superb and the prices are amazing. Every item on the menu is a bargain as the portions are generous. Be prepared to ask for a to go box. Indulge yourself and try the deserts.
The staff is always pleasant and humble. Giovanni is the best host I have met in all of Atlanta and he is a wonderful cook too. The food, sauces, and deserts are all prepared in house. Don't be let down by the lack of alcohol. Giovanni has put in for his liquor license and will be serving beer and wine very soon. So, stop by or take out and know you are getting the best food in town.

My husband and I LOVE Giovanni's! I don't write reviews often, but I just had to let people know what an amazing chef and a gracious host Giovanni is! Everytime we go, which is pretty often, we are always treated like family. The best thing about this place is that you get great homecooked Italian food at such an affordable price. Our bill has never been over $30 and that's ordering an appetizer, 2 entrees, and dessert! The house dressing is addictive! I'm always tempted to lick my salad plate clean it's so good! My favorite dinner on the menu right now is the shrimp alfredo. I'm usually not a fan of the white sauce, but it's so rich and creamy just thinking about it makes my mouth water! For dessert, I have to say that you haven't had real cheesecake until you've tried Giovanni's cheesecake. It is a must item to order for something sweet. Most times I don't have room for anything more, so I will get this to go! Giovanni is always adding new things to the menu, so we will definitely be back to try them all!

I finally found the best italian food. I am not into writing much about anything. But "simply the best", this place offered the most delicious food I ever tasted (italian or otherwise). The portion is huge and the place is very clean, I noticed that all the staff are wearing and keep on changing gloves. I feel so comfortable about this place and I highly recommend it. I will be coming back again and again.

Been to small and large Italian restaurants in different states but Giovanni's is second to none !!!!! We were visiting relatives in Atlanta when they took us for dinner at Giovanni's. What a pleasant surprise because this fabulous eating place is unique. It was very clean and cozy. The host, Mr. Giovanni and the rest of the crew were very cordial. They make me fell as if I am an important person even though I am not. I had the chicken marsala and it was " muy delicioso". The salad was teriffic with its dressing made from a family recipe. The servings were bountiful and although I was really full, I succumb to their persistence to try the teramiso for desert. Believe me, I ate the whole thing in no time at all (with no regrets) ....... We came back two more times ( in the five short days that we were in Atlanta ) and the food were just as succulent as my first one. I said to myself, I have to start dieting again as soon as I return to Boston. I highly recomend this nice restaurant to anybody. The atmosphere is beautiful, the food are all delicious and reasonably priced.

My wife and I are regulars at Giovanni's restaurant. Honestly we eat there on average of 2 times per week. Currently, my little sister lives in Rome, Italy and I have family from Sicily. I DO NOT EAT BAD ITALIAN FOOD! This restaurant is excellent - It is the most relaxed, unrushed, pleasant dinning experience. Outside of his great dishes and very affordable prices - HIS DESERTS ARE ALL HOME MADE FROM SCRATCH! Whether its a Terra Misu, Cheese Cake (MY FAVORITE), Cannoli, or a Triffle you can not go wrong. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone; you will not be disappointed.

I live right by Giovanni's and absolutley LOVE IT!! I am not one to brag but I feel so excited to have such a wonderful cozy authentic italian restaurant right by my house. I have tried just about everything and it is NO JOKE everything is delicious! My favorite is the lasagna. I have ordered lasagna in many places like Carrabas, Olive Garden, Maggianos and nothing campares to Giovanni's lasagna it is loaded with meat sauce and I don't know what else he does but it not the typical lasagna you order any where else. For any Italianos that would like to have home cooking and would appreciate authenticity of Italian food, I recommend , YOU will not be let down!

This unassuming little restaraunt hidden amongst the strip malls along the East-West Connector stands out in a big way.
The personal attention of the owner starts the moment you walk in the door, and does not end until you leave with a very satisfied smile on your face.
The food is delicious and authentic. We had the fettucini alfredo with broccoli and the eggplant parmessian (both vegetarian), and both were wonderful.
Prices are below the norm - dinner for two with appetizer, bread, salad and deserts for $30.00
Prepare yourself for real Italian, most joyful lunches, dinners and parties!

Pros: Great food, service, personal attention, uncrowded (for now...!)

Cons: Location - a bit out-of-the-way, but that can be a good thing

I stopped not knowing what to expect and walked out with one of the best ravioli dinners I have ever had. The service is very personal ,too! I'll have to get Giovanni to cater my party.

This restaurant offers the best of italian food I ever tasted. I had the fetuccini alfredo with shrimp and it is exquisitely delicious. The garlic bread is so fresh and the Giovanni's home made dressing of balsamic vinegar base for the salad is really good. The cheesecake is incredible. I know I will keep on coming back.
