Went there last week with the wife for our wedding anniversary. We now live in Dickens Heath and Giovanni's has been recommended by neighbours. The food was excellent. We went a la carte and for starters we had a plate of squid and a plate of king prawns which we shared. To follow I had the fillet steak and the... More

We stopped in for a spot of lunch on a whim as we were in Dickens Heath and had a really lovely experience. So much so that we had a return visit for dinner with friends. The owners are a couple; he works in the kitchen and she is front of house and we were made to feel most welcome.... More

Visited Giovanni's on the 15th November for the first time after reading great reviews on here. We were not disappointed. Food was superb, atmosphere and service was relaxing and friendly. We both eat out regularly and are well travelled. The only struggle we had with the menu was trying to decide on what to eat as there was plenty of... More

We went for a meal there were 6 of us for my friend's birthday mid October and the food I have to say was lovely however the service was not great, meals came out at different times and the vegetable accompaniments did not arrive until the meals were almost finished. The food was a little pricey and I was sadly... More

Food is good but not too many options, mains were tasty but starters were VERY oily. It's the restaurant you'd go for the food only (yeah you'd say why else would you go to a restaurant?) well.. The setting is very standard, nothing nice at all and service was very poor - I guess due to the bad English? I'm... More

I visited on a Friday as part of my 30th birthday celebrations. I would first of all say that it is rare to find a restaurant of this quality that offers it's set menu deal on a Friday night. I would also add that the variety of the set menu was very impressive with a salmon, chicken, beef, bream and... More

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
