A Delicious Italian Lunch experience, friendly service and nicely located. The iDEAL place for a coffee with a view too, relaxed crowd and all is crispy, fresh and top notch quality.

Great fresh foods and other items from across the world. My best turkey and cheese sandwich ever is from Giovanni's. Also I didn't even have to cook my dinner at the hostel I stayed at that was just around the corner. Just go to Giovanni's to get dinner. Affordable prices and very tasty!

Recently we visited Giovanni's as we were staying up in Hotel Greame. The selection of food is already pre cooked, but still maintains its freshness. The staff is friendly and they serve a fine cup of coffee. Lovely people, and you can find more than just food, and they have some imported good like Italian and British products.

We have been frequenting Giovanni's for the past 10 years and the food and service just keeps on getting better and better. Giovanni and his team understand the word service - whether you are buying one roll from the bakery who an entire basket of imported cheeses! The selection of buffet style salads, cold meals, hot meals and veggies is... More

It can probably not be more Italian outside Italy. For a moment, closing my eyes, I could have been at any corner of a piazza ... Great feeling, taste, sound and smell!

I think this is probably the first time I got to choose my food from a selection under my nose and heated and served while I waited. Great atmosphere, excellent choice, great taste and great service. The biggest problem is knowing what to choose because it all looks fantastic. I had soup and then a couple of main courses. All... More

Based on other ratings I think my expectations for Giovanni's were a bit high. There is a small buy nice selection of oil, wine and other condiments. I expected more from the deli though. The selection of actual Italian food was bare. The food they do have was just ok. The space is also very cramped... Not much else to... More

So yes this is a great place to get all sorts of imported and local products. Also there home made food is delicious. Staff are great. Vibey and cool to hang out. But closer inspection: the cooldrinks (many of which are imported) in the refrigerator do not have prices: I was told I can scan them at the queue (which... More
