Come on time !

Always tasty and can,nt fault food but avoid delivery as always to long (over an hour ). Tonight's food was cold due to delivery time . Popularity is affecting deliveries , needs attention. Still the best around 😀

without doubt Giovannis and their staff have the best chip shop in Edinburgh. Fresh food to choose from, wether you want traditional fish & chip shop food, kebab's, pizza's, burgers or Italian pasta's, you won't find it better anywhere else

We love getting our carryout at Giovanni's, especially the fish and chips. You should see the size of the fish. The staff are always nice and friendly whenever you go in.

This restaurant used to be so tasty, and so amazing, really nice staff as well.. But for the service me and my boyfriend received tonight, my impressions have changed severely. First of all, the delivery nearly took 2 hours to arrive, in which we phoned to see where our food was and we were told they were busy and it... More

The portion size was very good but the batter didn't really have any flavour. I ended up peeling most of the batter off and just eating the chicken inside dipped in the chilli sauce, which ended up... More

Popped in for a baked potato and sausage supper. Potato was huge with cheese and beans - delicious. Double sausage with great-tasting skins-on chips. Only issue: couldn't tell whether guy was asking me if I wanted "bUtter" or "bAtter"!
