“Good hearty Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

This restaurant is found on the side streets in Malahide, nice cozy place with good quality Italian food. The service is good and is normally quick. Menu has a good selection of meals to choose from.

“Giovanni's is a great place in Malahide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

It looks like Tripadvisor has the wrong spelling for Giovanni's Pizzeria Restaurant in Malahide. I would like to have added a review earlier, but could not find it so hopefully the information is changed.

We went there around 8.45 on a busy Friday evening. Instead of saying they were full at that time of night, a quick check was made on other diner's status and we were asked to sit down for five minutes. No tricks missed here and in a very short space of time were seated at our table.

The food was good, but we opted for a main course and a nice bottle of red wine.

What I found interesting was that they missed sales tricks after that. No dessert was offered and we had to ask a couple of times for some Expresso coffees.

At €62 + tip it was not bad value, we would return on another visit to Malahide, but would have thought the very attentive and friendly staff would have at least asked if we wanted dessert and coffee / tea etc

“Superb casual Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

The food itself wasnt superstar quality but it was well done and the restaurant was very busy and had a buzz about it.
Overall very pleasant and I would be more than happy to use again but if you are looking for high Italian cuisine go somewhere else.

“Nice restaurant off the beaten path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We walked by this place by accident. We initially went to a higher rated restaurant, but, by looking at the menu, we felt that the name didn't really match up with the food. This place was a great substitute for the food that we were initially looking for.

My friend and I got different dishes and we were both pleased with the quality and taste of the food. We were glad we stumbled onto Giovanni's.
