His pastas and fishes are very good.
The service is good.
The prices are fair.
It's in the strip shopping center where Tabarka and the Bufalo Burger are.
I understand he's reviving music on a couple of evenings (Tue and Fri) I think.
We like his place.

Each place is a little different.
Each has meseras/os that do their jobs well and try to make a living by doing a good job.
I dont know the history of any of the owners.
I have no reason to avoid them.
We do like some live dinner music so if Giovanni has it, they might be higher on our list.
And we still need to try the place east of Chapala - Foccacia?
So many nice places, so little spare waist in the pants.

I thought Giovanni left town after asking for money for his sick grandmother or something. That man and his sons have a history of opening, reopening, closing, and starting all over again in various areas ...mostly in Ajijic. His son Gerard does the best job of anyone in the family out in the Racquet Club....however......beware of changing menu prices on a daily basis.
What an uncalled for unpleasant post: ...money for his sick grandmother "or something"? Why post this kind of remark?
Giovanni is one of our quixotic culinary characters. We've followed him from place to place with good humor and high hopes. I mean, like everywhere he's been in the last 10 to 15 years. We've come to expect his itchy urge to move on even when things are going beautifully, and that's when his very nice son Cristian is called upon. Sadly, it's a bad sign.
I'm glad to see he still has a following at his current place. We've given up here. But we wish him well.
