Located on the pedestrian mall in downtown Iowa City, Givanni's is a hip, casual, upscale restaurant with stimulating chef's features and a vast wine program.
Givanni's Menu is inspired by Italian, American, and Vegetarian cuisine. All of our pasta is home-made and include such selections as sweet potato ravioli and spinach ravioli with shrimp.
Our skilled kitchen has been crafting local favorites such as Steak Deburgo and a Gorgonzola Crusted Iowa Pork Chop for over 25 years. The bread and deserts we serve are baked from scratch at our sister company, the Bread Garden Market.
Thirsty? We now have a great selection of beer on draft, from imported favorites to seasonal microbrewery selections all served up in frosty pint glasses.
Take a tour of our extensive wine list. We have selections for every occasion. From fine Italian and Californian wines to compliment your meals, to special Champagne to celebrate that special occasion. We also have a fine selection of Ports and Scotch.

"We had a 6:30PM dinner reservation with friends and ate outdoors. We ordered drinks and appetizers prior to ordering our meals. We had wonderful conversation and didn't leave the table until after 8:30PM. We were never pressured to hurry and the waitstaff was accommodating. Food was very good, we will be back!"
"Great atmosphere! This Italian restaurant in the heart of Iowa City's ped mall is long and narrow, with exposed brick walls and Art Deco touches here and there (the neon on the ceiling is something to see). It's the perfect place for a date."
