We had a mixed bag at the restaurant but will go back. The starters we had were excellent - calamari of both types on the menu. My wife had the swordfish which she really enjoyed. I had the rib eye steak, good piece of meat which was cooked to perfection. This was a good meal but could have been made... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time and were not disappointed - the food and service were very good - do not let the location put you off - close to the road and railway station and not in the upbeat riverside BUT the price for the quality of food is very reasonable :-)

Great staff (who had noted both my wife's food intolerance and our wedding anniversary). I wasn't expecting a decorated table on a Monday night. Well balanced menu with something for everyone and the flexibility to change items for individual preferences. The wine list is compact but I would again challenge anyone to not find something to their liking and the... More

Delightful little restaurant and they could not have been more helpful or accommodating. I asked for one of the pasta sauces without bacon as I am a vegetarian. This was no problem whatsoever as everything is freshly cooked to order. After our delicious meal we were deciding on desserts and as I have some issues with certain ingredients the chef... More

Very good Italian restaurant opposite the entrance to Temple Meads station. Both food and service were of a high standard. My calamari with chili dip starter was delicious and the veal Milanese with pasta was cooked just right. My wife’s minestrone and stroganoff were excellent too. Good wine list with lots of good value Italian wines that well complemented the... More

I have to say this was one of the best Italian meals I have had and who ever selects their seafood should be given a raise - the quality of the ingredients was exceptional. I thought the menu and specials offered a wide variety of choice and had many of my favourites but being a seafood fan opted for the... More

I visit Bristol quite regularly and Don Giovanni's is a definite on my list for either lunch or dinner. The choice has the usual Italian fayre on it but the quality is always superb. It's like you've stepped out of Bristol and ended up in Florence or Tuscany, the flavours are great. Wine choice is good and the staff are... More
