“Fun experience with ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The food was just ok - appetizers and salads were quite good. I especially liked the bruschetta as the tomatoes were very tasty and fresh. I had the fish special which was fresh halibut. It was good but over sauced. My husband also had the fish but opted for it grilled and it was a preferable preparation. This latter option was actually suggested by the very knowledgable and excellent waiter. The service was terrific - friendly and solicitous but not over bearing. The owner was a character. Part way through our dinner the live background music became a little show off concert with the owner, in full flashy chef's get up, singing a bunch of Italian songs with a full throated warble and flirting outrageously with the female guests. It was pretty hilarious and fun.

“Outstanding Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Very charming courtyard sets the ambiance for this outstanding italian restaurant. One of my favorite restaurants in the world. It's an annual treat. Just about anything you order is out of this world!

“All Round Wonderful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This was our first time in Cabo and we happened to be here on Valentines Day. We traditionally have had Italian food on Valentines Day for the past 35 years! So we asked our hotel to recommend a restaurant and they sent us to Capo San Giovanni. We had such a wonderful time. The moment we walked in we were seated in an outside patio with beautiful vines all over the walls and we felt even if the food proved to be no so great the atmosphere was so unique it was worth it. Well it only got better, the food was delicious! The live music was really enjoyable and the service was great. All the staff was so friendly and patient. The food was very reasonably priced. This was a very enjoyable evening and much better than I had ever thought! If we ever come back to Cabo ( and we plan to) Giovanni's will be on my list of restaurants to go back too!!!

“Won't be going back!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

There are many Italian restaurants in Cabo and we have been to them all, and often. This last time we went to Capo's, they parked our car, we had a nice meal, but when we got the bill they had added a parking charge to the bill. While we always tip the valet that brings us our car, we have NEVER had a fee added to the bill. Needless to say, the driver got no tip and we won't be coming back, what with all the other good Italian restaurants around here to chose from that don't sneek in these hidden fees ( If I hadn't checked the bill, we probably would have never noticed). Don't appreciate getting played like this.

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

My husband and I have been coming to Cabo since the mid 90's and since we found this little gem it is always on our must do list. Just returned from Cabo and we here twice in our 2 week stay. The food is always amazing and the service is fabulous. This last visit we were taken care of by David, Brabo and Maru as well as having the opportunity to meet Executive Chef Zapella himself!
