San Giovani is almost one of the best restaurants in Alexandria. If you are seeking for real food; it is the place you have to visit. I visited it since early 80's with my parents since I was a child. Food taste is the same no change. Original recipes for most menu items. Restaurant had some specialists which you have... More

My starter, onion soup, took 50 minutes to come out and was pretty average. I ordered a grilled fish steak for main, and it came out fried! Was too... More

San Giovanni is located about 3 blocks from my house, and I have eaten here both by myself and at official business events. Never has the experience been enjoyable. The most recent time I was here was for a business dinner, and it didn't fail to disappoint. The food was horrendous, and the service was indifferent at best, even for... More

Great Location with awesome view over the Metideanian. Still following the well established service traditions of Alexandria during its Golden Days. Order anything from the Menu, you won' go wrong. Food is very tasty, Generous portions and reasonable prices. Budget around 100-150 pounds per person, without wine.

We went there for birthday dinner, the food was FANTASTIC, great views on the bridge and the sea, staff were very accommodating and the service was very professional. i definitely recommend any of the meat plates and the portions are quite big as well. the only problem is the lack of parking but it is worth it!
