Giovana Cafe

Busting out of its hidden alcove, Giovana's bringing its lunch-friendly Italian fare to up-and-coming SE 1st St, plating apps like Giovana's Platter (mozz sticks, bruschetta, chicken fingers), and their famous chicken salad w/ raisins, Granny Smith apples, basil, and toasted pine nuts, plus hot dishes like snapper filet w/ capers, onions, and olives in a light tomato sauce, and lobster ravioli w/ basil and asparagus in a pink sauce, which you can always count on for: 1) inexplicable mainstream music success, and 2) swearing it's not a dude.
