We had been meaning to go to Giovanni's for a while now after hearing opinions of it here. Hadn't made it yet until last night for our 33rd Wedding Anniversary(we aren't old, just well seasoned). Had inquired about The Lark, but just didn't seem like us. We loved Giovannis! Everything about it! The food was excellent. But also important was the service! An excellent greeting from the hostess and right away asked us if we were celebrating a special night. Well yes we are! Were seated right away to a very nice table. The server was there right away to take our drink orders and a nice greeting. Brought our drinks and some delicious warm bread. I ordered the bricole and hubby ordered the ravioli stuffed with cheese and topped w/crab. All excellent! Towards the end a lovely woman, I'm assuming is the owner of the establishment came by and chatted and told us how her mother made braciole. It was a lovely evening! I wish Giovanni's would relocate to Farmington Hills! Kind of a long drive for us but but that was fine, it was our Anniversary!
I recommend Giovanni's for food, service, ambiance and everything else. Except location for us!
