Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with mixed emotions that I announce a new chapter in my life and the lives of my beautiful family that surround me. Giovanni Ristorante established September 23, 2002 has closed its doors permanently on Sunday, August 30th 2015. It has truly been an incredible journey filled with amazing parties, music, friends and family. We thank you all for the beautiful memories.

I am going to be doing some fun things in the near future like writing a Giovanni Cook Book and possibly starting a little YouTube Cooking Show to teach you how to make some of your favorite Giovanni dishes. I may even start jarring and selling Our Giovanni's "Mama Gloria Marinara Sauce" and of Course Giovanni's Own "Death Row Vodka Sauce" the sauce that's so good that if you were on death row you'd want to order this sauce for your last meal : )

So thank you again for all of your years of patronage and please stay a fan of Giovanni Ristorante and look for updates on this fan page!


Warmest Regards,

Rich Grosso
Former Chef and Owner
