Revisiting Don Giovanni's

We were in midweek. Early, it was quiet at first, then got busy and began to fill up which added to the atmosphere of the restaurant. Nice mix of people - couples, families, etc. It has had a refurb since we were last there, which is excellent, staff were friendly and helpful. Nice warm and cozy... read more

I was in Don Gio's last night with a group of friends of Italy as we were suggested to go there from some people in the town. We had a very warm welcome from the owner that pumpered us with a great italian atmosphere and lovely food. Some of us had pizza, I had Pollo Parmigiana and chips, others got... More

We were very pleased with the atmosphere and the retro 1930's decor, it was a blast from the past and the selection of ice-cream was mind boggling. It is worth the experience but a bit pricey

The restaurant is quite old. Sofas and chairs look terrible. Pasta is not really italian, not cooked at the right point, not tasty and very heavy. Typical italian dressings are missing. Italian atmosphere is well far away.

Monday night visit and although it was quiet it did liven up as the evening progressed (8.30 on). I'd read the reviews here and had high expectations of a good meal. However the food was not great. Although at this point I should say the staff were great. Prawns in filo were fine but the bruschetta and the foccia were... More

The food in here is okay a bit pricey for a bit of pasta or a pizza to be honest but the atmosphere is really nice and cosy and the staff are nice as well :-)

went here on a busy saturday evening, the staff were very friendly and approachable. i was impressed at wine selection, and the menu has something for everyone, as well as a kids menu and catering for vegetarians and coeliacs. well priced, quick and very tasty food in a friendly atmosphere and will definitely be visited again!

Went to Don Gio's recently with my family and I cant fault it one bit in the slightest! The service was great, we were greeted with smiles and felt very welcome as we took in the amazing atmosphere .. I ordered the prawns in filo pastry, this did not disappoint me as they were cooked to perfection, nice and crispy!... More

Lovely food, friendly staff. The lasagne was lovely and warming and the homemade cheesecake rounded off a great meal. Nice selection on the menu
