Terrible, non authentic, over priced - avoid

My partner has been badgering me to try this restaurant for almost a year now. I have always declined after viewing their menu online, realising that their menu is non authentic and way too vast to be anything special. I was right. After eating here this evening I will never return. Despite being... read more

Great setting, loud floors, lots of people who clearly believe children should not be allowed to dine in restaurants, staff that flutter between genuine niceness and snooty - food average, over priced really. this is not London, but the prices reflect something...... i am sure there are many who come here and feel "spoilt" but in honesty its just average,...

Visited on Wednesday night for my birthday, not too busy but not empty so there was a nice atmosphere. Waitress and waiter very efficient and attentive - ordered the goats cheese starter which was fantastic and then the mixed fish which I was a little disappointed with as the fish flavour was overpowered by the garlic butter sauce. Veggies and... More

This was our first visit to San Giovanni's and we had a great evening. Before we were shown to our table we sat in the lounge & had a drink- we felt very welcomed and relaxed. Once we were seated our orders were taken swiftly. Our starters arrived in good time; the portion sizes were very good & all starters... More

We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation time, thinking we could probably sit in the bar downstairs & have a drink, but we were promptly show to our table. We ordered aperitifs which arrived quickly & the food ordering was smooth, despite some reviews I've read the staff were pleasant to... More

The steak was amazing and I have not tasted one cooked so well since the States.The restaurant interior is very trendy, light and airy. This was my first visit... More

It was my birthday so I was treated to a meal at this amazing restaurant. There was 4 of us altogether and although it was pretty quiet (who goes out on a Monday night in February in the snow?!) there was a really nice atmosphere. I ordered Penne al Salmone which was just amazing. I don't usually order pasta in... More

An absolutely lovely restaurant with great surrounding's. Went last month with a couple of friends craving some delicious authentic pasta.

Been a few times now and happily travel a 2 hour round trip to get there. Great food. Great service. Every time it's been perfect. The building looks great too in a great setting.... not sure what else they can do- just stay consistent i guess At £130 for 4 of us not too expensive. Well done all- you have... More
