Giovanni's Table on Adventure of The Seas Review


Recommended Posts

Ok, we just came back (ūüėĒ) from our first ever cruise on Adventure of The Seas sailing from April 6-11. We booked our second night of the cruise to dine at¬†Giovanni's Table.

Wow. I found the food and service to be absolutely excellent!  

First we were had our bread service and Giovanni's Italian Cheese and Cured Meat Plank that included not only the excellent cheeses and meats, but also a small jar of pickled veggies that paired well with the meats and cheeses.

For our appetizers, we chose the Insalata di Rucola and the Grigliata di Polpo.  The Insalata di Rucola was a salad made with Arugula, shaved parm, parsley, and a lemon vinaigrette. It was maybe the least enjoyable thing we tried. It was very strong with the lemon, but you may find it excellent. The greens were fresh and tasty.  The  Grigliata di Polpo is the grilled octopus. The octopus was cooked perfectly and was tender and mild with just the right amount of char. It was served on a bed of white beans that were seasoned nicely.

For our pasta courses, we chose the Gnocchi al Gorgonzola and the Linguine alla Vongole. The Gnocchi was perfectly cooked little potatoey pillows in a fantastic sauce. It was a favorite for both of us. The Linguine all Vongole is linguine and clams. The clams were sweet and tender and the pasta was cooked perfectly and sauced nicely. I just wish it had a few more of those delicious clams!

The entrees we chose were Gamberetti alla Ligure and the Filetto di Manzo Rustico. The Gamberetti alla Ligure is grilled shrimp served over mashed potatoes with herbs and cherry tomatoes. The shrimp were well cooked and while this dish was tasty, the real star of the night was the Filetto. It was a filet mignon, roasted garlic potato puree, roasted brocolini, with a Barolo sauce. We both agreed the filet may have been the best we ever had. It was so very good!

Finally we enjoyed our desserts of cannoli, tiramisu and this chocolate hazelnut thing I cannot recall the name of! But the chocolate hazelnut thing I cannot recall the name of was the best of three good items!
