Giovanni Restaurant

Italian restaurant established in Berkeley in 1961. We are serving homemade pasta, pizza and more Italian traditional dishes.

The Giovanni location is reopening as Gio's Pizza & Bocce! The restaurant is looking to open towards the end of August! The bar has been remodeled and will feature an extensive selection of Amaris and Vermouths! The soul of Giovanni established in 1961 is still alive!

It's back! Giovanni Restaurant has been a fixture in downtown Berkeley since 1961. Now, with a contemporary refresh — but one that maintains many of the old features, we introduce you to Gio's Pizza & Bocce. Opening soon on Shattuck Avenue.
