Visited Giovanni's on Monday 20th October for my boyfriend's birthday. Food was lovely, service was efficient and friendly. We enjoyed some lovely homemade bread before the meal as neither of us fancied a starter, following this, I had a Stone Bass dish, and he had Pork Shoulder. Both were fantastic in flavours and quality though the portions were plenty for... More

Catering for groups is always tricky for restaurants and a lottery for diners. Our group experience at this small restaurant in Leyburn, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales was a very pleasant surprise. With pre-selection made and a small deposit paid our group was treated to fine dining with some lovely dishes, such as Paperdelle as a starter and... More

Fantastic host in Sarah. Great chef in McBride. Lovely salmon ballontine. Perfect cooked lamb rump. No problem us playing cards with girls. Proper chicken nugget. Stone bass cooked perfect. Tiny place. But we will be back.

I enjoyed my first visit to Giovanni's in its new guise. Unlike some reviewers, I far prefer a short menu as it is more likely to be freshly prepared food and it saves trawling up and down a long list. Had a beautiful piece of lamb, followed by bramble and Bramley apple pie with good shortcrust pastry and homemade vanilla... More

It is many years since I visited Giovanni's last but I had heard some good reports about it being under new management and so decided to give it a go. Well worth the visit. The food was delicious. The menu was interesting. The service was friendly and efficient. We will certainly be returning.

The food from start to dessert was of exceptional quality. We were served by a most enthusiastic and knowledgeable front of house service. the food quality was of a very... More

A lovely welcome awaited us when we called in on speck last Monday whilst travelling through Leyburn. Although our visit was short we were delighted with the obviously homemade and very delicious lasagne. It was very filling and nicely presented. I would like to call in again and have the time to dine properly as there was plenty of choice... More

We thought this would be Italian with the name however we found it to be mostly fancy British. Very few dishes to choose from which left myself only 1 dish I would have liked, Lasagne. This was very nice though and didn't disappoint. Rump steak was apparently very good too. No starters I fancied so had homemade breads, which were... More
