Cara Mia! Copperas Cove!

18 May



It’s not often I head to Copperas Cove. It’s on the other side of Fort Hood, about a 20-minute drive from my house. However, the other day my friends and I decided to meet up there for our once-a-month book club-dinner.   We opted for an Italian Restaurant called Giovanni’s. I had heard good things about the food and heard they recently reopened at a new location.

Before even pulling into Giovanni’s parking lot we could smell the fresh garlic from the highway! I was completely taken aback at how good this place was. The building looks great. There’s a water feature that runs through the main portion of their dining room, a little “lazy river” like feature with nice plants and rock accents.  

Upon taking our seats, my mouth dropped when I saw the prices for their wine on the menu. They serve mostly Italian wines…no names you would recognize from the traditional liquor store line-ups. We got a bottle of Italian Chianti for $14!!!! And, it was very good! I ordered the antipasto salad and the chicken picatta. It was top-notch. I was also impressed that on this particular Friday night,  a young man was walking around, serenading guests with his violin.

I give Giovanni’s Italian Restaurant in Copperas Cove an A+. It was well worth the drive for us. It’s always nice to support local mom and pop type of places in the cities and towns you’re stationed at…..and even nicer to break away from the common chain restaurants  like Olive Garden. (which by the way expect over an hour wait on any weekend night at the one in Killeen)
