Visited based on reviews..... Lovely food well cooked and the staff were very friendly. Only slight niggle is that we felt rushed to order a pudding after eating a starter and main meal and personally would have preferred to wait a while. Will return because the food was lovely

We were welcomed warmly by the staff and immediately shown to our table. Drinks were served quickly and our orders taken. Bread and olives were brought to the table before our starters came. All the courses were nicely presented and were very tasty. The only thing lacking and hence only 4 stars and not 5 was a little lack of... More

We went here for an anniversary meal and all I can say is it was lovely. The food was fantastic and really really tasty. The staff were awesome and very friendly. The head chef came out of the kitchen and asked how the meal was, which was a nice touch. I would be more than happy to go back to... More

This is without doubt my favourite restaurant in the area. I have been on many an Italian holiday, and trying to find good, authentic Italian food in this country that comes anywhere close is a challenge. However, this place gets it right. It has the perfect balance of being a family-run traditional restaurant but also a vibrant modern place. The... More

Met up with some friends for lunch today. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Lunch excellent. I had the Lasagne and for desert I chose the Baileys cheesecake. Couldn't fault anything. My friends were equally delighted with their lunches too.We will all certainly return and will have an evening meal next time. Thank you to all the staff and... More

We visited Giovanni's today for the first time and had an excellent meal. We thought Tuesday would be a quiet night but this restaurant was nearly full with a great atmosphere. Despite being so busy the staff were very attentive and there was no delay in getting our meals. The service really was second to none. The food was of... More

One of the best Italian meals we have had for the price. We come to this area three or four times a year and for the second visit this year we eat at Giovannis. Twice in one week, second time taking a friend. We all agree the food is excellent. The set menue is very good value and does not... More

Great food and very authentic. Had both the quality of food and fantastic, friendly, Italian staff. Sat outside and had a great meal :).. Great location too! Will be returning to try something different on the menu but my pasta with salmon for starter and chicken for main was delicious!!

Last Saturday, went to Giovanni's for dinner. The meal was great, risotto starter was fantastic! My friends veal was a big hit, my steak special was lovely but could really have done with a whole lot more sauce. This is nitpicking though, over all fantastic and well done guys :)
