About Us

“For some families entertaining is like breathing. And our family has a history of breathing life into special occasions for generations. My father, Giovanni Gabriele, came to the United States from the small Italian town of Potenza. Like many immigrants, Giovanni brought what he knew to start his new life here in America—fine food and entertaining.

From washing dishes in a well-known restaurant, Giovanni’s passion to own his own restaurant grew and in 1977 he opened Giovanni’s in Stamford. Ten years later he added a second, The Waters Edge at Giovanni’s in Darien. Each step was made possible by the dedicated following of loyal patrons—and might I add, the active participation of his three lovely daughters.

Recently my husband Sal and I took over the daily operations, under Giovanni’s ever-watchful eye, and we are dedicated to building on the family tradition. Who knows, one day one of our four sons may continue the family business since entertaining is what we do and who we are.”
