Fantastic Service

Wanted a good quality meal while we waited for a train. The staff couldn't have been more helpful...... they knew we were in a rush. Fantastic food and we caught our train. Will call again and this time spend longer!

I've not been to Bristol for a while due to work commitments but I've just left having had yet another fantastic dinner. The service is still superb and excellent value for money menu which leaves you spoilt for choice. If your looking for low key high quality food then Don Giovanni's is an absolute must!

Great food, friendly fast service. Started with the Calamari Fritti which was amazing, and really we could have just had a huge portion of this and left happy. However, we'd also both gone for the smoked duck special, and were not disappointed. Perfectly cooked and tasted as good as it smelled. Staff were attentive but not intrusive.

I ate dinner here alone because I was staying at the nearby Doubletree Hilton and did not feel like eating in the hotel. Nice pizzas, friendly service and a nice atmosphere. Not in a very nice part of town, but that didn't make a difference to the taste.

On the main road opposite Temple Meads Railway Station, it's not the nicest location, however it's a busy place, and next to the Holiday Inn Express. In all we were quite happy with the Food,the Wine,and the Service. There's a good atmosphere with groups and parties as well as couples. I would be happy to return next time I am... More

The waitreses here were outstanding - couldn't do enough to please with their attention to detail, thoughtful recommendations and remarkably alert service. The food went down very well for the fish eaters, but the pizza vegetariana was large but somewhat bland. The final ice cream was put on a pedestal by its written descriptionthan but it tasted just like a... More

Been here twice now and both times have been lovely. The food is so full of flavour no matter what you get, and what's more, it's all very well priced. Worth visiting on a date or with family - essentially if you are in the mood for Italian this is the place to go!

I have been to this little gem twice now, and I have not been disappointment. Im a big Italian fan and much prefer resturants like this to the chained resturants. The food here is so fresh and authentic. I struggled to decide what to eat at both visits because everything on the menu sounds amazing! I recommend trying the pizzas,... More

I've visited twice now and been astounded both times by simple yet ultra fresh food, great ambience (busy, but not overly so) and exemplary service. Special shout out to our waitress- I wish I knew her name- who, upon hearing I really wanted the profiterole dessert that had just sold out, asked the kitchen to whip up a special hot... More
