Great food and very authentic. Had both the quality of food and fantastic, friendly, Italian staff. Sat outside and had a great meal :).. Great location too! Will be returning to try something different on the menu but my pasta with salmon for starter and chicken for main was delicious!!

Last Saturday, went to Giovanni's for dinner. The meal was great, risotto starter was fantastic! My friends veal was a big hit, my steak special was lovely but could really have done with a whole lot more sauce. This is nitpicking though, over all fantastic and well done guys :)

We went in two day's before the England - Italy game and were greeted by two great Italians. I said 'we've come to check out the competition' - they laughed and played along with with some fun footie banter. So here's our truth, two things make a great restaurant, the food of course and the service. These guy's have it... More

The staff are pleasant and have a good sense of humour, which I liked. The food choice is quite wide and in fact all the... More

First visit to this highly acclaimed restaurant will not be my last. The food was excellent, the service was very good. The price was average for this type of establishment. The owner touring round his guests to ask if everything was OK was a nice personal touch. The only thing I would comment on was the fact that the tables... More

We went along to celebrate a birthday; I was encouraged to try Giovanni's for the first time after having read excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. I can honestly say I would not return and am astounded at all the reviews which highly recommend it. The service was good and efficient, staff friendly but there it stops. There was a lack... More
