We visited this restaurant after it was highly recommended as one of the best restaurants in Porto Rontono. The waitress we had was very friendly and provided a great service even if one of the orders was incorrect. The food was nice, however the steak was a bit tough and it didn't have any seasoning. Look a while to get... More

General experience Being one of those person who enjoys chatting with the personnel and get a nice recommendation, it was unfortunate to discover a language barrier with any of this restaurant's waiter. Our main waiter didn't smile and seemed annoyed talking to us during the whole evening - something that makes me feel uncomfortable especially if this place is considered... More

The Restaurant is has a very elegant sophistication of Sardinia, the people who work there are so friendly that by the time you leave the place you will feel like family, the food is out of this world spectacular, from full coarse meals all the way to little samples of everything, which include home made pasta , monk fish ravioli...

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...
