Giovanni Ristorante is Nashville's best Italian restaurant, serving delicious homemade pastas, exquisite risotto, seasonal black and white truffles, and more. The restaurant moved to Nashville in 2008 after 27 years in Mid-Town Manhattan and has become a staple in the city's dining scene. Chef Giovanni Pinato oversees the menu, which includes imported cheeses, veal, prime beef, fresh seafood, homemade Italian bread and desserts, and gelato. The restaurant is housed in a Tuscan villa-inspired building with beautiful Murano glass decor. Private rooms are available for special events and parties.
