Really good impromptu lunch

I saw the notice board outside advertising lunch and a glass of wine for £10.95. It was a hot day and that sounded appealing. I had previously eaten dinner at Giovanni's and found it to be excellent but this was my first time ordering from the more limited better value lunch menu. I ordered a... read more

This was a very friendly Italian restaurant and we liked that the chef came round the tables after the meal to ask if everyone had enjoyed it

Have been a couple of times and always have great food with really good personal service. I would recommend the ravioli starter and veal main as it is so tasty. Wine is nice and the desserts are great, but filling. We do always have 3 courses and wine so it could be that, but it does always seem to be... More

Visiting relatives in Solihull and decided to go out for dinner. This restaurant looked good on Trip Advisor and so it proved to be. Very friendly service, good ambience and good food. I had the days specials for starter and main and they were both excellent. I noticed that some reviews said it was a bit pricey but I thought... More

First time here and impressed with the overall experience. Nice décor, friendly staff and quality food. Extensive menu with some unusual dishes. Prices a little higher than average High St Italian but you get what you pay for. Would recommend.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a member of staff at Premier Inn, Hall Green and it was a good recommendation. The restaurant is small and food excellent. I had the lamb dish and my husband said it was the best lasagne he had eaten in ages. Staff were polite & helpful, we will definitely visit it again next... More

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.
