In central Greenpoint, Giovanni's is the ideal spot for a quick meal of a cup of coffee. Good business networking.

We Had the pleasure of enjoying a wonderful meal of saltimbocca, kabeljou, steak and linguini plus a well recommended kleine zalze Chenin blanc today. All of which were well prepared, tasty and generously portioned. The restaurant was fully booked yet Cloudious was attentive, helpful and knowledgeable. The management is on top of their game and it shows! A great discovery... More

Fabulous food and now I understand why you have to book for a Sunday night - the place was full. The service was done at 10 star level, never... More

We've been here numerous times and it never fails to impress. Fabulous food at very reasonable prices, great atmosphere and Dr Ishmael is always the waitron of choice!! One of the few restaurants where they often surprise you with a starter or desert on "the house"

The attention to detail in every aspect has always impressed, but no better testimonial to Peter's dedication than his staff's performance. They are his family and from your second visit you are part of their's - the waiters make a point of fetching you with a warmth that is real and tangible. When you haven't been for a while you...

If you are ever in Cape Town, South Africa, make your way down to a Cape Town institution Giovanni's. You can eat in - select your food from the deli counter, or take out. Over the years they have added an array of fabulous food for all tastes - lots of healthy, yummy vegetarian choices, as well as excellent meat... More
