Come 5 p.m. on a Saturday night, customers begin to gather for dinner at one of Northwest Indiana’s premier Italian restaurants. Yet, before the first person is served, Giovanni’s serves as the perfect private setting for many a bridal shower.
“The bridal party has the restaurant to themselves until we open to the public in the evening, so it does create a perfect setting for an event,” explains Mary LoDuca, owner of Giovanni’s in Munster. “Whatever the event may be, we are there to cater to their every need.”
In business for over 45 years, Giovanni’s has become a favorite with countless loyal customers. For friends and family looking to gather for an upcoming nuptial, Giovanni’s offers specialized menus featuring both plated and family style meals perfect for a celebration. The Chicken Piccata Luncheon menu includes everything from homemade rolls to primavera vegetables and cream and cheese potatoes. Three choice lunch or dinner menus are also available, featuring Giovanni’s delectable Chicken Marsala, Herb & Parmesan Cheese-crusted Tilapia or Linguine Primavera with fresh vegetables sautéed in olive oil and garlic, tossed with linguine.
Of course, with the help of the talented staff at Giovanni's, each event can be customized to your heart’s content! “We work alongside the party planner to ensure that all of their needs are taken care of,” adds LoDuca, who suggests booking events at least two months in advance. “They are family when they are here!”
