Saying that chefs stick to Italian classics might imply a slim menu, but the culinary team at Giovanni's Italian Restaurant prepares a wide range of dishes, from cheese-stuffed manicotti and homemade gnocchi to linguini tossed with mussels and clams. Beyond pasta, chefs flavor racks of lamb and 14-ounce T-bone steaks with cracked black pepper and extra-virgin olive oil before carefully searing them on the grill.
Old World varietals sourced from Italy and America comprise an equally extensive wine list with options to complement each hearty dish. After meals, digestives such as espresso, cappuccino, and specialty coffee spiked with Kahlua can settle stomachs and give diners the burst of energy they need to finish building a silverware ziggurat.
