Harmony had Jamie's but no Giovanni's when we sailed on her during her maiden season.

Giovanni's on Freedom and Independence was much better than Jamie's on Harmony.

Giovanni's is an Italian restaurant but much nicer than Jamie's.

I concur. Giovanni's is much better than Jaimie's and IMO the old Portofino's is better than either one of them.

If you go on Harmony you must try Wonderland as it is a unique experience.

I like both of them.

So do I.

 

To answer the questions above, they are not the same. There are many kinds of Italian cuisine. Giovanni's Table is a more "traditional" pasta-based menu, with other things, of course. It is closer to what many people consider "Italian", particularly if they don't live in a large city with many options.

 

Jamie's Italian is an English chef's take on upscale Italian-ish cuisine, and it is much less pasta-centric.

I am basing this review on someone saying that Giovanni's Yoki is so much better and the Filet is good. The Panchatta (sp) and the Octopus. Not sure if these are served at Jamie's or NOT..????

What is Yoki?

Suspect, since it was heard on video, that OP means gnocchi.

As you can see, I borrowed these from Gambee's cruise website. These are not the most recent menus. You can see that there is no octopus. I don't recall ever seeing octopus at Giovanni's Table. But that could be my memory. ;)

In addition, no RC ship has both. They are Italian restaurants; there is one or the other.

 

Portofino was RC's original Italian restaurant, when they first began to have specialty restaurants on the ships, back in 1999.
