10Best Says

Giovanni's marries local favorite flavors with an Italian home-style menu. A deep green, grassy olive oil is set on the table for dipping: very authentic.

Seafood bisque has a delicate shrimp and lobster base, with Old Bay and lots of fresh seafood. Another great starter is their Crab Sorrento: clam shells are filled with crab meat, fennel seasonings and bread crumbs – kind of a crab gratin, if you will.

Locals love their Veal Sinatra: it's a breaded veal cutlet topped with Proscuttini, sliced fresh tomatoes and mozzarella. It has a delicate mushroom and white wine sauce. It comes with homemade pasta and you can pick from a number of shapes. Ask them to make it like their house pasta course: sauteed with peppercinis, olives, pimentoes, onions, mushrooms and Italian spices!

Save room for their cheese pie dessert: this creamy, custardy cake was their aunt's recipe.
