You are planning a trip to beautiful Fort Walton Beach, Florida, and you are wondering where the best place is to go for dinner. If you want to experience the very best of beachfront dining, you should not miss going to Giovanni’s One89. They have a lovely view of the ocean and a fabulous menu of Italian food that will please the most discriminating diner. The prices are surprisingly reasonable when you consider the elegant atmosphere of the establishment, and the wait staff is well versed at pairing their selection of alcohol with food.
The appetizers menu offers some fantastically fresh seafood such as calamari with marinara sauce and crab cakes with beurre blanc. If seafood is not your thing, you may want to try the mozzarella fritte or the tangy spinach and artichoke dip.
Salads and Pizza
If it is a light meal that you crave, the restaurant offers salads made with fresh veggies as well as some delicious homemade dressings. Be sure to try the Greek salad, which is so hearty that it is a meal in itself. The pizzas include a creamy, crunchy white that comes with garlic and a Stromboli style stuffed pizza with your choice of six ingredients.
The main menu features classic Italian dishes, such as ravioli and lasagna as well as all the various cuts of steak. Don’t pass up the pasta; the penne vodka sauce alone is worth the visit!
You will not want to pass up Giovanni’s decadent after dinner creations. Be sure to try the creamy tiramisu or the perfectly cooked crème brulee. Any one of the Italian coffees goes well with dessert, but they also have some top shelf booze at this establishment. You won’t be disappointed if you get the Hot and Dirty Martini, which comes with a picot vodka, or the martini that is made with sweet vanilla espresso.
