Unbelievably creamy ice cream and incredibly nice proprietors. Honestly, the salted caramel with chocolate chips is to die for!!! Giovanni's made our day. This place is a must stop if you are anywhere remotely near Bridgnorth🍦🍦🍦🍦

The reviews were so good that we tried the ice cream and were very disappointed. The name Italian led us to expect Italian quality ice cream but, unfortunately, the mint chocolate chip was distinctly lacklustre.

After a long walk in the hot weather this place just sums up the time spent here. My girlfriend absolutely loves this place. Quality sandwiches and some tapas like extras which is an added bonus and refreshing ice cream to end your stay here. Will certainly recommend this place.

What a fabulous cafe, and dog friendly too. The sandwiches were delicious and it's great to have tea served in proper china tea cups. The staff were very friendly and very welcoming to my dog Pixie. We'll defiantly be visiting again.

Friendly and welcoming cafe. We researched on trip advisor before for dog friendly and this cafe completely delivers with excellent service and even better coffee. A very friendly member of staff even gave our little puppy a few dog biscuits. Highly recommended and will visit again. Good work! Many thanks, Ian, Tracy & Bluebelle
