We visited Giovanni's at lunch time - specially for their Liver and onions - It is a dish that we can recommend to everybody liking Liver. The service was attentive and the food very good.

9 out of 10 times delivers a good performance. Love the vegetarian pasta, good thin based pizza's and generally a nice outing for the family. Friendly staff. But services does slack a little when they are too busy . Well worth a visit.

4 of us booked at lunch time for that same evening. Our table was in the shopping mall rather than inside the restaurant as it was very busy indeed. Service was attentive but not overbearing and food extremely good. My friend had the marrowbone snails to start and felt they were as good as anything he'd had anywhere ( and... More

I spent 2 weeks visiting my sister, we all ate at Giovanni's and I had the best meal I have ever eaten. The rest of our party agreed. I insisted that we ate there nearly every day and the food was always well presented, good and value for money. The staff are so polite and efficient as well so I... More

We were “fine dined” out by the time we got to Somerset West this trip and pasta and pizza were called for to restore the balance. We knew Giovannis was the antidote and, as ever, it was – twice. I ate the prawn pasta (twice) – OK I could choose something else occasionally, but it’s really, really good! My wife... More
