Those hungry for red-gravy Italian will find it hard to beat Giovanni’s in Stamford. Pastas, chicken or eggplant parmigiana, Italian-style wedges (that’s what they call sub or hero sandwiches up there)—all are dependably delicious, promises jfood; “talk about an independent. three guys in their 50-60’s making everything by hand … Love those guys.”
