Bravo Giovanni: Musical Info & Synopsis


Bravo Giovanni follows the proud owner of a trattoria in Rome. However, when a fancy competing restaurant chain, Uriti, opens next door and threatens to put him out of business, Giovanni must devise a plan. With a bit of assistance, Giovanni constructs a tunnel from his trattoria’s basement to the Uriti kitchen, secretly transporting food to serve in their own restaurant at lower prices. Bravo Giovanni is a tale of resilience, friendship, and the triumph of the underdog.
