Giovanni Ristorante Italiano is a little gem on the Pacific Coast Highway, at Sweetwater Canyon Drive in Malibu. Locals claim it has the best Italian food in the area. The restaurant's cozy, elegant seaside cottage is quite romantic and is sometimes referred to as the 'loveshack.' The menu includes wonderful fresh Italian food, a gnocchi bar, and to-die-for tiramisu. Giovanni is open all year round for lunch and dinner.
