My family and I are frequent patrons at this place, not only because we live nearby, but because it feels like a second home! The staff are all very friendly, and there are always a few familiar faces in the restaurant. Every time we visit, we try to order something different to the last time, and I can assure you,... More

The mains were Salltibuca, Veal Limone and... More

On a freezing cold Monday evening the restaurant was fully booked, many patrons could not be accommodated - that says it all. The food was exceptional, the vibe and service just amazing!

Wow, what a meal. Talk about the perfect matching of food and wine. Visited Giovanni's for the 1st times on Friday, heard a lot about the place though. I was in the mood for a bottle of Shiraz, it was such a lovely winters day. Because I was a 1st time visitor I had no idea what to have of... More

The best service and food by far in Somerset-West and surrounds. Great ambience and food to die for. Peter is totally in control of the place and he is assisted by the best.Pelle and Ishmael is the best. Do not leave Cape Town without having a meal at Cucina di Giovanni.

The best in Somerset West by far. You have to eat out at Giovanni's when visiting our town. Never had a bad meal and still making my way through the menu
