Just dropped in for a quick pizza. Nice big, proper thin crispy base, just like you would get in Italy. Excellent flavour and friendly efficient service. I've worked nearby for years but never been before. What a mistake!

My wife and I were staying in Bristol for the weekend and found Don Giovannis on the web and booked in - despite being full the service was very prompt and friendly and the food was delicious.

We booked a table after reading the reviews on here and we are so glad that we did! On entering the restaurant we were immediately greeted by a friendly waitress and taken to our table. The service throughout the whole night was excellent. The waitresses literally 'scan' the room to check the customers are happy. We ordered mussels and mushrooms... More

Me and my boyfriend came here last night for valentines. First time here but we were very impressed. We rang them on the way as we were stuck in traffic and were worried about missing our table but they were very friendly and reassured us they wouldn't give our table away. When we arrived it was beautifully decorated with heart... More

One of the best Italian meals I ever had, certainly the best outside of Italy. The food was beautiful, both in presentation and in taste. I had the special of the day, prawns on linguini. The prawns were GIGANTIC, the pasta was cooked to perfection and served with a delicious sauce. This restaurant has been open for over 25 years,... More

Have passed this restaurant man times, and finally made it in there. Its one of the nicest Italian meals I have had (and I've had a few!) Excellent efficient service, the Italian draft lager was really good. Could not fault the calamari fritti and mozzarella in carrozza starters, and the main course pasta dishes were delicious, generous portions too. All... More
