Known for its tasty tomato sauce, G'Vanni's serves piquant Italian fare within its warm, comfortable confines. The three-course meal begins with a choice of an appetizer or salad, advancing afterward to an entree with a side of pasta. Antipasti up with gorgonzola fries ($7.99), shoestring potatoes loaded into a cannon with crumbled cheese and fired artfully onto a plate, or go green with a fresh market salad ($8.99, organic greens and garden vegetables with balsamic dressing). Entrees include vegetables, chicken, veal, and seafood, with gluten-free options available for the wheat-sensitive and vegetarian fare for the meat-averse. The eggplant parmesan bathes the purple veggie in tomato sauce and cheese-based deliciousness ($17.99), and pollo marsala soaks chicken medallions in marsala wine sauce ($24.99) for a match more harmonious than a sriracha popsicle. A side of pasta, such as the ziti ($3.99) or a gluten-free option ($6.99), rounds out the meal.
Susan Amato owes her restaurant's name to her grandmother Angelina, who hails from the small Italian village of Bolognano. Many of the recipes and all of the wall photos are extensions of Amato's family, the elevated Italian cuisine presumably a juicier, more colorful take on the photographs' black-and-white tale.
Upon entry, chandeliers loom overhead like trays of glowing teacups, illuminating steaming lobster ravioli, veal sautéed in wine, and sandwiches laden with paper-thin prosciutto. Delicate pan-seared scallop starters segue into panko-encrusted fish and bubbling gourmet pizzas. To season these feasts, guests might enjoy a martini or a glass of Italian wine—perhaps one from Zaccagnini, a Bolognano mainstay.
