We had excellent food and very good service from welcoming staff. There was subtle background music but the atmosphere was quiet, maybe because it was mid-week. Although it was our first visit, other diners were known to the staff.

The service was friendly and the atmosphere pleasant. The food was very tasty but I and my colleagues were a little disappointed with the portion size of the main meals given the price of some of the dishes. Extremely disappointed with the very high price of the soft drinks considering the small sizes. Was pleasantly surprised to see the chef... More

This is a great place to eat with either family or friends, some great sharing dishes for starters and fantastic pasta. We shared 4 starters a little like tapas, a lovely selection. I had a lovely vegetarian pasta dish, others had pizza and steak, all the food was lovely, hot and really good quality. The service was great, the waiter... More

Just returned from Giovanni's after a friend's birthday lunch. A delightful meal! The staff were polite, friendly, helpful and very professional. The food superb, chicken and pork tender and with delicious sauces. The hake was beautiful. Vegetables were well cooked, not slushy or undercooked, just right, great roast potatoes too. Starters and desserts were all equally as good. Wines were... More

We visited Giovanni's on 10th January to celebrate my husband's birthday with about 35 guests - adults and children. With the day being a Sunday we had sole use of the venue. Planning the event was easy and a range of negotiable menus are available in addition to a very reasonably priced child menu. The food and service were excellent.... More

It is great to be able to go to a restaurant serving authentic Italian food, instead of mass produced pizza and pasta in a chain restaurant. There is a warm and friendly greeting, all the staff are Italian (when you speak Italian in one of the 'Italian' chain restaurants no one understands a word), the food is freshly cooked, beautifully...

We have been going to Giovanni's in Dickens Heath for over 10 years. The staff are amazing and Giovanni himself is so friendly and charming. The food is amazing and great value for money. The selection of wine is excellent too. Great parking facilities (free). Fabulous restaurant and 100% quality.

In this age of fast food outlets and vast restaurant chains how nice is to still have your local Italian to savour. My second visit to Giovanni 's and again I enjoyed it thoroughly. My wife loves vongole and even though it wasn't on the menu they soon knocked up a delicious version. My calamari starter was sublime. Throughout the... More
