Pretty extensive menu supplemented by quite a number of starters and mains on the specials board. The welcome was good and the service attentive throughout. We shared a deep-fried risotto ball that looked like a large Scotch egg but tasted a great deal better. It's probably just a clever chefy way of using up leftover risotto, but it was really... More

I have visited don giovannis a few times as i work close by. If visiting on a lunch hour i would recommend the pizza platter. Its only £6 and you get 2 huge slices of pizza a jacket potato and some really tastey homemade coleslaw. The pasta dishes are also lovely and i would recommend the bolognaise! Really good food...

Our first visit and what excellent food!. We were staying near Temple Meads station and this was close by. We were welcomed warmly and found an extensive choice of menu with delicious food which has to be some of the best Italian food we have had. Good portions, attractively presented at a good price. Well done to all the staff... More

We ate here on the two evenings that we were in Bristol, coming back on the second evening because it was so good. A lovely menu with plenty of choice. Generous portions, friendly, attentive staff. A perfect place to eat

good food and generous portions, spoiled only by a fairly rude waitress (though the other waitresses were very friendly) nothing to traipse across town for, but a good option if you're near Temple Meads train station

Extensive Italian menu, plus enticing daily specials. Food excellently cooked and well presented, generous portions. I haven't encountered as consistently good standard of service at this level of restaurant before: attentive, efficient, proactive. A couple of things stand-out: checking in regularly to see if everything is OK, and asking if we needed more drinks. Now I know they have an... More

We ate here on a Monday evening. We didn't book. The restaurant wasn't full but had a good atmosphere. The calamari was really nice, very light and crisp. I also enjoyed my goat's cheese and parma ham salad. Husband's pizza looked good and the base was crispy and not soggy in the middle which is how it should be -... More
