Giovanni'a Italian Restaurant in Encinitas

This is a nice casual homestyle restaurant located at 764 Hwy. 101 in Encinitas.The people were very friendly and the food...let me tell you about the food. We decided to try some of their specials, first was Pappardelle Trapani, a pasta dish with pancetta, grilled chicken and pesto which they baked with parmesan cheese on top. Next we ordered baked rigatoni, this was by far my favorite, rigatoni pasta with sun dried tomatoes, fresh mushrooms, spinach, pesto and grilled chicken baked with mozarella cheese. The combination of the sundried tomatoes and pesto made this dish mouthwatering.
