  • WEG is the best venue from start to finish. Look, people will remember the food, alcohol, and music at your wedding, and WEG ensured that the reception experience was stellar at every turn. The space is gorgeous; the staff is thorough and courteous; and the food is OUT OF THIS WORLD. People are STILL talking about how delicious everything was! The fresh mozzarella bar and the Venetian dessert hour were HUGE hits. The bartenders were befriended by our groomsmen and I hear the drinks were great (do yourself a favor, don't drink on your wedding day). Your guests will have a sterling experience at WEG. Michele is all-world! The best coordinator ever! She is accessible 24/7, always kind and enthusiastic, and has answers for everything. She is also a great resource for other vendors and how to navigate those decisions. I was in such capable hands with her. I felt like she had become part of the family by the end of it! Additionally, every time I was there, Sal and JoAnn were present ... Read more

  • We recently had our daughter’s wedding at WatersEdge at Giovanni’s in April 2019. Everything was perfect. There isn’t anything we would do differently. Everything was wonderful, especially the delicious food, wait staff and an amazing bridal coordinator, Michelle. People often ask us what was the best part about our daughter’s wedding day and for both of us it was the fact that we didn’t have to worry about anything. Michelle was in total control - working very closely with the vendors. Their operation is smooth and slick, the co-ordination they have with their staff and vendors is amazing It was an incredible feeling to know that we could relax and enjoy the day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves.  Months later we still receive endless comments about how good the food noting it was the best wedding they’ve ever attended. WEG sets the bar very high and exceeded all our expectations.

  • My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Waters Edge at Giovanni's on Saturday, July 7, 2018. It was the best decision. Bonnie made me feel very special from the beginning. She went above and beyond in making sure everything went well. For our wedding reception, my husband and I wanted the food to be from our culture. We were delighted when we found out that The Waters Edge at Giovanni's offers special menus from different cultures. Bonnie was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole process. All of our guests had a great experience and are still talking about the service, the amount of food and how delicious everything tasted. Thumbs up to Chef Mancini. The food was amazing. The whole staff were very nice and helpful. I recommend The Waters Edge at Giovanni's 100%!

  • We recently had our wedding here and it was more than we could have ever dreamed of! The venue is beautiful and they transformed the ballroom into a romantic, elegant setting for our black tie reception. From our first initial meeting with the wedding coordinator to our big day and everything in between, the staff was always reachable, prompt to get back to us, and helpful in the planning process. We had a lot of unique requests such as putting a tent up out back for cocktail hour and getting food trucks come for our after party and they were able to deliver on all of our requests! The day of staff was so attentive and professional and many of our guests commented on how excellent the service was. On top of all of this, the food was amazing! I would highly recommend The Waters Edge at Giovanni's to any bride and groom looking for their dream wedding.

  • Our wedding was on June 30, 2018 at The Waters Edge at Giovanni's and everything was absolutely perfect! From the initial meeting all the way to the day of, everyone at The Waters Edge was helpful, patient, and willing to sit with us to go over every last detail. On our wedding day, Bonnie and the entire staff at The Waters Edge was friendly, attentive, and professional. Even our guests were blown away by how excellent the service was on our wedding day. We cannot recommend the Waters Edge at Giovanni's enough for your wedding, truly a 5-star venue!!

  • Today, we enjoyed a wonderful milestone birthday party at The Water's Edge at Giovanni's, and I have to thank everyone who helped me to make this party run so smooth and wonderfully! From Michele Esposito who very kindly and competently helped me to arrange all the details (all within two weeks' notice) to Bonnie and Sal who helped us on site the day of to Syed and the other wonderful wait staff who made us feel welcome, special, and added extra/special touches I did not even think of (and they went very well). Thank you for making my Doug's 50th birthday a memorable event that everyone enjoyed! (And our family give their high compliments, too!)

    Hello Jodi, It was truly our pleasure and we hope to see you and Douglas again! Happy Birthday Douglas!!!!!!

  • Stopped there on our way home from a vacation in Virginia. We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. Best accident ever. Fine Italian restaurant, fantastic cuisine and service. Our waiter Douglas was informative, with an old school professionalism very refreshing. Also got to meet Giovanni the owner who was equally pleasant. We will make the 3 hour drive from Mass to enjoy another dinner.

  • Bonnie was great! Very knowledgeable and put my mind at ease about my day. I was nervous and did not know what I was supposed to be looking for and she answered all my questions as well as added some suggestions that got me inspired.

  • We had our daughter's baby shower here and was very happy with the whole experience. Staff were attentive, very easy to work with, & accommodated our every request. Food was excellent, portion size could have been a tad larger so I would recommend getting the offered first course pasta dish which we declined thinking it would be too much food. Would highly recommend Giovanni's for any event!

  • My husband and I got married at The Water's Edge at Giovanni's on Saturday, August 12, 2017. Let me tell you this was the best choice we could have made. Everything was just perfect. We are from out of town and Sanchi and JoAnn helped us throughout this entire stressful process called wedding planning. We originally had a different wedding coordinator (we booked about a year and a half before wedding date) by the time our wedding was happening she wasn't there any more. Let me tell you Sanchi and JoAnn put all the missing pieces together and helped us have the best wedding of our lives. The food, service, drinks was FANTASTIC!!!! They were so accommodating and helpful throughout the entire process. All my guests are still raving about our amazing wedding and how great and welcome they felt at The Water's Edge at Giovanni's. I would recommend this place a 100000000%. They stood calm even when I was a nerve wreck hehe and we will forever be thankful and grateful with them. Much love... Read more
