Re: “Godfather of Cleveland Dining: The 50-year Legacy of Carl Quagliata

I've enjoyed the pleasure of treating friends and relatives to dinner at Giovanni's. The humor is, we enter a fairly simple entrance, and then we are "blown away" with the extremely top notch staff, atmosphere, and menu. Often these guests return on their own.

Re: “The Best Cubanos and Puerto Rican Food in Town Shine at the New Location of Caribe Bake Shop

Thanks for this tip! I visited Caribe for the first time last weekend and enjoyed rice, beans, empanadillas, the blood sausage and chicharrones. I can't wait to go back!

I had the pleasure of tending bar at Giovannis for just a little over 15 years, retiring last January . We had some fun in that lounge, and working both lunch and dinner shifts I got to know many many wonderful customers , several of whom became good friends. Between great food and great wine and drinks it was a fabulous bar to tend to, but my coworkers and the management, specifically Pierluigi Gregori, our wonderful maiitre de , sommelier, tableside chef, carver of Dover sole and steak for two, tri pasta appetizers ....zabaglione , bananas foster, cherries jubilee , or crepes ...a man who dedicated much of his life (and continues to do so) to making each and ever customers dining experience at Giovannis as fabulous as possible. Pierluigi is also the lead server, the banker, the orderer,the scheduler, the wine expert, he just wears so many hats and has been a faithful and dedicated part of the equation for Carl from the beginning of it all. So a big debt of gratitude from me to Pierluigi , and also a huge thanks to Carl for providing us all with a wonderful venue to be able to put smiles on the faces of so many of the wonderful customers of Giovannis over all of these years !! Salute Carl, bravo !

Re: “Euclid Brewing Company Does Beer and Science

What a great place! GREAT BEER also you can "Byos" (bring you own snacks).
Located on Lakeshore Blvd. - easy drive from East- West- South . Coming from the North? Best drive is a boat!
