Discovering Italian Delights at Giovanni’s: Unveiling Origins and Flavors

Honey Lime Salmon: A Modern Twist on Italian Seafood

In our array of offerings, one star shines—the Honey Lime Salmon. This creation graces both our Pranzo Lunch and Sunday Lunch Menus. Imagine a succulent roasted salmon steak, marinated in our exclusive honey and zesty lime blend. It’s paired with a quinoa mixed salad, drizzled with our signature honey-lime sauce. Especially cherished during warm months, this dish captivates hearts. Beyond taste, it caters to health-conscious sensibilities with trendy quinoa. While salmon isn’t exclusively Italian, its versatility finds a place across Italy, where seafood and fish dominate.

Fritto Misto: A Time-Honored Italian Pleasure

Among the gems awaiting you, a cherished delight graces our off-menu specials—the Fritto Misto platter. Akin to our Antipasto Misto platter on the A La Carte Menu, this dish is a celebration of family feasting. A medley of meats, seafood, and vegetables, each delicacy is lovingly enveloped in a crispy olive oil-fried batter. This indulgent platter, loved by families for its generous portions, mirrors the Italian tradition of crafting it from seasonal delights, reflecting the region’s bounty. Its heritage dates back to the early 20th century, making it a timeless symbol of Italian culinary culture.

Bruschetta: A Contemporary Spin on Italian Tradition

Experience a symphony of flavours with our Bruschetta offerings, nestled under ‘bread selection’ in the A La Carte Menu’s sharing section. Our culinary artisans have breathed new life into this classic dish. The traditional ‘classic’ bruschetta, kissed by garlic and olive oil and adorned with tomato and basil, shares the limelight with the vibrant ‘bruschetta Toscana,’ crowned with roasted sweet peppers, garlic olive oil, and fresh parsley. These light and invigorating starters, steeped in Italian tradition, trace their origins to the ancient Etruscan era, flourishing between Rome and Tuscany.

Costine di Maiale: A Global Flavor Embellished by Italy

Delight in a cross-cultural treasure, masquerading as a quintessential Italian dish—Costine di Maiale, or ‘spare ribs’ in Italian. Our rendition of these succulent ribs, gracing the A La Carte Menu, tantalizes the palate with its luscious Italian ‘sticky style sauce.’ These tender, flavorful ribs have transcended borders to become beloved by all, earning a permanent place at Giovanni’s. While not an exclusive Italian creation, they have integrated seamlessly into the culinary fabric of Northern Italy, particularly around regions like Northern Veneto and the enchanting Dolomites.

Tagliatelle Bolognese: A Centuries-Old Italian Pasta Tradition

Lastly, indulge in the timeless allure of Tagliatelle Bolognese, a cornerstone of our new A La Carte Menu. This cherished classic, simmered in a rich, slow-cooked sauce for over five hours, promises a symphony of taste and texture. Handcrafted with fresh, homemade pasta and savory meat, it captivates every bite. With roots tracing back to the 18th century, the first recorded recipe dates back to 1891 when Pellegrino Artusi eternally etched this culinary masterpiece into the annals of Italian gastronomy, celebrating the perfect fusion of meat and tomatoes.
