What we ordered: The spaghetti and meatball lunch special (A generous portion of spaghetti topped with marinara and two meatballs, with garlic bread on the side.)
Giovanni’s is a neighborhood deli with a comfortable dining area and hometown feel. The marinara sauce is sweet, fresh and traditional. The hamburgers and sandwiches appeared to be quite a handful.
