Being on our doorstep this restaurant is a bonus, went with our eldest daughter on a Thurs evening, did not disappoint. Staff were great and made our daughter feel at ease, the lamb dish was one of the best I have ever had. The fact that the owner/chef Giovanni takes time out of the kitchen to personally visit every table... More

Our first experience of Giovanni's came after skidding through the door late due to Birmingham's awful traffic. We were instantly put at ease, provided with much needed drinks and left to peruse a wonderful menu. The whole evening was perfect, as was our second visit two days later. Efficient, friendly, relaxed, excellent food, delightful surroundings. Brilliant place.

7 of us went for a meal, all had three courses of various dishes and all 7 thought the food was amazing! Small place, excellent service, the chef came out and spoke with us and boy can he cook! We will be returning.

Lovely little Italian, you have to book but it's worth it. Gorgeous food and quite reasonable considering the quality that is given. Great service too, we go and will continue to go once a month at least.

I travelled from South Wales with my wife to look for some furniture in Solihull. Leaving at 6pm, we decided to have an early dinner before the drive home. A quick research of Trpadvsor and we decided upon Giovanni's. When we arrived, we were asked if we had a reservation, which we didn't, and even though the restaurant was empty... More

Went on the basis on previous reviews and not disappointed. Went with another couple who are not into Italian food but they able to find plenty of options without pasta. 4 adults all have different main meals from menu and we all had praise for our meal. Never felt rushed. Chef and owner come out and spoke to us, which... More
