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

We booked in for "Mother Day" and managed to get a table for a 12pm sitting the day before. The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and the service was very good and attentive. The food was disappointing after reading reviews, as our expectations. The crayfish cocktail was average and more avocado than crayfish tail. The minestrone was bland according to... More

My family took me here for a birthday meal, based on the reviews they had seen on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The menu was fantastic, there were so many things we all wanted to try. The food itself was the best we have tasted in a long time and the service was friendly and attentive. We were... More

Our first time at Giovanni's and we left more than impressed. Our evening started with a warm friendly welcome by Giovanni's wife, and lovely authentic italian waiter service who attended to our every need. The food was great, probably the best Italian i've ever eaten, we will definately be eating here again.

I took my mother here for Mother's Day and had high expectations based on the reviews i'd read (at the time ranked #1 in Solihull). We were greeted by the owner himself and shown to our table. We had the sliced steak with hand cut chips and chilli oil. The meat was cooked to perfection although I must say the... More
