I recently went to Jovi's for dinner during Local Restaurant Week. After my great experience, I found myself wondering why on earth I don't go to Jovi's more often! It is great Italian food at an extremely affordable price. They also offered one of the greatest values I have ever seen for Restaurant Week's $20.17 price. I started with the... More

Starting with the service and ending with desert, it was outsanding. the specials are always interesting but the night I ate there, it was especially gratifying. It was a bouillaisse type dish with scallops, lobster, mussels and clams in a red sauce with anglehair pasta. Fantastic.

It's the little things that Jovi's that make it special, like the olive mix brought with your bread before dinner, and how you can taste the effort they put into their sauce. The servers are professional but friendly. I also enjoy that they offer some specials that change each night. I will return for dinner and also happy hour, which... More

We brought our Dinner Club of 7 to this place on a busy Saturday night. All of the food was very good and I especially liked their red sauce. My wife tried the manicoti and I had the lasagna and both were tasty. Many in our party went for the $20.16 restaurant week combos and said their food was good.... More

Small restaurant with a huge menu, fabulous food, and great service. This is my favorite restaurant in Kenmore. Food is consistently of highest quality.

I have been to Jovi' s several times-with and without friends n family. We all have had wonderful meals everytime we go! All of them have retuned to bring their friends n family. We have always had excellent service. You owe it to yourself to try again-this time be more adventurous than spaghetti & meatballs!

My overall experience at this restaurant was actually terrible. Being from Buffalo I figured most Italian restaurants serve great food but boy I was wrong about this place. Our waitress had a horrible attitude, we never got refills, the food was atrocious and poorly made, and on top of that, it was extremely expensive. I decided to play it safe... More

Jovi's was highly recommended by a co-worker of my customer so we thought we'd give it try. Great little bar area and nice dining room. The waitress was amazing. The restaurant was full and she took care of all of us. Always filled our water and asked if everything was OK. We never had to wait for a thing. Tried... More
