Giovanni's Table (No Coronavirus Required)


Recommended Posts

We interrupt this week's random concerns and/or panic about coronavirus for something a little more fun.

 

Giovanni's Table - is your "go to" dish:

  1. Ossobuco alla Piemontese
  2. Filetto di Manzo Rustico
  3. Mediterranean Branzino
  4. ______________ (something else)

Number 2 is carbonara 

 

I have found that the Carbonara varies greatly by ship.  On Jewel, it is amazing!  On Adventure, not so much!  In my experience, it can only be found on the “newer” Giovanni’s menu which many ships don’t want/have.

Their seafood is usually very good. I alternate between the branzino and the grilled prawns. 

I may have to rethink my strategy... save the steak for Chops, and enjoy the seafood here.  The problem is, I hear the osso buco calling out to me in the distance. 😬

I like all their appetizers including freshly cut prosciutto.

OK, that looks outstanding.  My previous Italian experience was Jamie Oliver's on Anthem.  It was OK, albeit strange.  These appetizers look a lot more appealing!

This was 2013 in Gioviannis on the Allure for lunch.

That’s true pretty much everywhere unfortunately.    We are going on Harmony next month and it will be interesting to see how my memories get messed with.

Unless I am mistaken, Harmony does not have a  Giovanni‘s table, they have Jamie’s Italian

 

enjoy new memories.

Filetto di Manzo Rustico & Gamberetti alla Ligure.   They are always too happy to bring me both. 🙂

 

I do remember the good ole' days of a plate full of freshly shaved prosciutto... I would love to see them bring the slicer back.
