We had the pleasure of a wonderful night in Giovannelli's last night, the food atmosphere and wine were excellent, the portion sizes were perfect and we enjoyed every bite,we have to mention the wonderful waitress who we both agreed was the best we have ever witnessed, we can't wait to return.

We had a wonderful meal here during our week in Killorglin. The food was very fresh (the caprese salad and tagliatelle especially) and the portions well sized. Wish this restaurant was back home in Ann Arbor!

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at Giovanelli's. The chef/owner assisted us in selecting a lovely bottle of wine to complement two very different dishes. I had a beef ravioli in a light white sauce that was rich and subtle with excellent beef flavor. Thank you for a lovely evening.
