We stopped for a quick bite on this restaurant on our way to the garden route and what a surprise. We enjoyed the pasta and the salads. The service was amazing. Surely we will come back on our return .

This was our second visit and we plan to come many more times. The food and service is wonderful and the variety is outstanding.! Tonight we were especially impressed with our waiter Claudio, and have requested him next week. Atmosphere and staff are great! Highly recommended.

We required a restaurant for a late lunch on Friday and Giovanni's was the only one I could find that was open after 3pm. I had my reservations given that it is in a shopping mall, but forget that! Great restaurant. Friendly, efficient service from when I first phoned, to arriving and being seated to being served drinks and food.... More
