Experience the Generous Portions of Delectable Dishes Made with Love from Scratch at Giovanna’s Cafe

“When I’m in the kitchen, I’m in my zone, my happy place”

Stepping into our café is like stepping right into Giovanna’s home as a welcomed guest – from the casual ambiance to the fabulous homemade dishes made from the finest ingredients to Giovanna’s friendly chatter. Giovanna’s passion is infectious – your first visit to Giovanna’s won’t be your last!

Passionate about cooking and sharing fabulous food with customers is Giovanna’s dream - and it shows in the food and hospitality.  We strive to make our guests feel as if they are visiting the home of a good friend.  Meals are served in a warm, inviting atmosphere, where you will likely be visited by Giovanna herself, as well as her daughter Gina Marie.  When they are not in the kitchen making freshly baked goods, such as Nutella cinnayums and homemade biscuits, or creating culinary delights, you will find them chatting with customers who they have come to know by name.

Restaurants and Fabulous Food are an Innate Part of Giovanna’s Being

In true Sicilian tradition, Giovanna grew up with food as the center that brought family and friends together.  Born into a family of incredible cooks and the daughter of a restauranteur, Giovanna’s love of cooking began.  A stay-at-home mom who loved to cook, Giovanna drew upon inspiration from her mother, father and mother-in-law to pursue her dream - Giovanna’s Café, which she runs with her daughter.  In addition to beloved, handed-down recipes, Giovanna and Gina Marie artfully create new menu selections, testing, testing, and testing again until they are just right. Each dish must pass the Giovanna Test or she won’t serve it!

We Know the Butcher, the Baker . . . the Fish Store Owner

Only the freshest ingredients will do for our simple, clean flavored dishes. We hand-select our purveyors - the butcher, the baker, the fish store, local farms. You will taste the difference from the first bite.

Come let Giovanna and her daughter make you part of their family.
