Simply exquisite food and service. Wonderful attentive chef/owner... A joy to dine here

Amazing, absolutely beautiful food, modern presentation without being ostentatious, all within a reasonable budget. Well worth stepping into.

I went to Don Giocanni's for the first time as my belated birthday meal. It had a nice, romantic feel to it. We had good quick service. No waiting around. The menu was good but not a lot of chicken option on the menu. I don't eat pork or ham, so the menu was limited for me. Other than that... More

I visited after scouting the local area when my train was delayed. I had a beer and a lovely bowl of pasta all within 30 minutes. Very friendly and speedy service. They should advertise at temple meads to anyone whose train is delayed. I'm certainly looking forward to being delayed in Bristol again soon!

Surprisingly good and friendly restaurant for location. Very close to Bristol Templmeads station and 50 yds to left facing the Holiday Inn which is directly opposite the station entrance. Home cooked food, nice wine, arancini on starter menu, meat courses very good and good portions. A must for anyone staying at the Holiday Inn. All in all, a great choice... More

We came to this restaurant for the first time purely based on the trip advisor reviews and we are so glad we did! We booked to come here for our first wedding anniversary - I emailed Don Giovanni's ahead and asked if there was anything they could do to make it more special and they decorated our table beautifully.

My husband and I decided to give this place a go following trip advisor comments, and it's close location to our house. We were extremely happy with the whole evening, start to finish. They squeezed us in at the last minute as they were busy. The food was served hot, timely and every mouthful was beautiful. I enjoyed the mushroom... More

It's on a very busy main road, with no parking nearby, and it was empty when I popped in for lunch. I ate from the specials menu - arancine to start, then sausages with pasta (and a glass of the house red) - all very tasty - I'll be back.

I'm not a real fan of Italian restaurants (who wants to pay for dishes they cook at home?) but my wife and I booked last minute for our 6 year anniversary and were blown away by the service, fresh food and authentic recipes. My only regret is that we didn't visit sooner! Would be nice if it had done parking... More
