Don Giovanni Ristorante 358 West 44 Street New York, NY 212-581-4939   no web site listed ????

Our good friend PAT was celebrating her 70th Birthday and her husband Bill took us to Don Giovannti’s on 44th, which was just a few blocks from our Hotel. It was a nice warm and friendly Ristorante with a good aroma as we entered the front door. It says they are known for their brick oven pizza.  We started with assorted drinks and apps, Rolls with garlic and the Fried Calamari, it was delicious, tender inside and crispy on outside. There was 6 of us so we tried a lot of things on the menu. We ordered a few salads, Veal  Marsala, Veal Piccata, Lobster Ravioli, Fried Chicken Breast on rice, Linguini and clams. All was delicious. The meat dishes were VERY Tender and the sauces were excellent.

Unfortunately, we didn’t order the Famous PIZZA, but the aroma all night of them cooking was enough to let us know they Must be good. we didn’t order dessert either.  Pricing was in the middle .   ALL in ALL, a GREAT Friday evening in Downtown just blocks off Time Square with GREAT friends and delicious food.

4 STARS………..  Happy Birthday PAT.
