Tuscan atmosphere

One of the best Italian restaurants in Nashville, Giovanni Ristorante is in a house resembling a Tuscan villa. Inside the grand stairway wraps around a custom handmade orange Murano glass chandelier leading to the second level. The warmth and colors of Tuscany prevail in the space through the use of custom finishes and materials.

The walls are covered in authentic plaster imported from Venice and Mantova, and the heavy timber wine cellar and Hermes upholstered bar are the highlights of the second floor where there is also a private room.

Complimentary bus service provided to and from any hotel and to any show or event downtown.

Hours:
Open Sun-Mon. 11am to 10pm.
