I have been at Ristorante da Giovannino many times. The restaurant combines the advancements in international cuisine with the Italian and Sardinia tradition. The "antipasti" bring you to another level: fish-based ones are especially good. Main courses, "primi e secondi piatti", range from home-made pasta dressed in traditional ways to more exotic dishes that resemble the ones served in the... More

After struggling with the quality of food in Costa Smeralda during the low season, we decided to no longer take risks and go to Giovannini in Porto Rotondo. At 21:00 we were the only ones in the restaurant, but later 2 other tables joined which had positive impact on the atmosphere. The young waiter was very nice and helped us... More

We went to this restaurant having been told it was #1 in the area. It's day 1 for us in Sardinia so I seriously hope not! We waited 1.5 hours for our food. When we asked the waitress eventually she said the kitchen had got the order wrong - she was very sweet but the managers didn't come over and... More

I am delighted that we were able to get the full family experience when we visited here, as so many before us reported out in their reviews. From the charming set up, and beautiful sparkling wine selection, to the wonderful dinner service and expert menu recommendations, and the perfect food, we couldn't have asked for more. I would have gone... More

Very arrogant, menu looked nice but we didn't stick around to find out. Less than helpful with gluten free understanding. I'm rarely negative but this restaurant needs to wise up...

Very cozy, family style where the chef is...a mom! owner of this place so you can just imagine! Everyone made us feel like home. Best pasta... More

Had dinner here last week, having had loads of fish during our stay we had steak and fries. Whilst the fries were cooking you smell that the oil was past it's best! Fillet in mustard sauce was not pleasant
