We had two lovely dinners (on successive nights) at Carlo Govi. It deserves all of the plaudits that it has received. The food was excellent, hospitality was delightful, and the outdoor setting (at the back of the restaurant) was exceedingly pleasant. A thoroughly relaxing and civilised experience. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is located in a residential neighbourhood outside the historical centre of Mantua, in a spotless and stylish setting. My choice fell on the freshwater fish menu, and I was not disappointed. The plates are all elegantly presented, the portions are fairly generous and the ingredients are prime quality. A particular mention goes to the Garda Lake fish fillet... More

We were with a large group visiting Mantua but managed to break away to find this delightful restaurant away from the town centre and the crowds! We had an excellent meal, the best pasta we have had. The owner Carlo speaks very good English and is a great and genial host. Unfortunately we did not have time for dessert so... More

I deeply enjoyed my recent dinner at the Carlo Govi's restaurant in Mantua. This restaurant is a bit away from the city centre, that is good because it tends to be avoided by the non-curious tourists. The restaurant interior is very pleasantly furnished with simple but elegant tables and chairs. I particularly liked that there is some useful distance between... More

This is an excellent restaurant. Exceptional hostbwithna real,food interest and happy to explain and discuss in English. Good choice and lovely food. Reasonable price. A little out of the old town but really worth the effort. Make a date if you are in Mantua.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel Casa Poli which was excellent. Everything about this restaurant has a feeling of quality, the decor with photographs of Mantua trained celebrities, to a carefully chosen colour scheme, a menu with local traditional dishes and an owner who knows how to be a great host. The best food we ate in a... More

We had a great experience at Carlo Govi! The food was delicious and beautifully presented; we thought that it was a great value for the money. Carlo was extremely hospitable, attentive, and explained everything to our group (we were all Americans). We were seated on the patio, which provided a really nice atmosphere for the summer night that we visited.... More
