Five of us from a beginners Italian conversation class came to Giovanni's to: a) practise our rudimentary Italian and b) to have a great meal. We were not disappointed on either score. A very warm welcome as soon as we walked in; with great good humour, the manager helped us order our food in Italian, gently correcting our faulty pronunciation... More

I've been meaning to try this restaurant for ages. Why did I wait so long? A little piece of Italy exists in Dickens Heath. First class everything and an extensive menu with all the favourites and some interesting options. Calamari starter and minestrone soup yum, penne arabiata cooked to perfection, and no problem serving prosciutto and melon as a main.... More

I ate here with my wife whilst on a recent trip to Birmingham. The food was good, not blown away fantastic, but good. The service was very good and the chef coming out of the kitchen and introducing himself to everyone was a nice touch.

We ate here on a Saturday night and I am sorry to say I wasn't blown away. The food was good but not amazing. The service was hit and miss. I would have to say I was disappointed after everything I had read. I wouldn't rush back.

We have eaten countless times at Giovanni's Restaurant over the past 20+ years. Never have we been disappointed. Particularly like the vitello alla crema.

I had my birthday meal at Giovanni's along with a number of family & friends. Despite the restaurant being busy and there being 14 of us, the food & service was excellent. We did not want for anything the whole evening and I just wish that we lived closer so that we could visit more often. Big thanks to Giovanni... More

Have been a few times before & have never been disappointed. Husband & I came with 2 other couples & as usual we all left very happy. The food is fantastic & presented well. The staff are welcoming, friendly & attentive. I like the fact that restaurant is quite small; feels more intimate. Giovanni appeared from kitchen when we'd finished... More
