It has been some years since we dined at San Giovanni and, on dark, murky winter night, it required skilled and alert driving and a SatNav to find. We dined on a Thursday and were glad to find it was not crowded and that we had been allocated a good table for two. The Christmas lights gave the gardens a... More

Lovely meal for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. 2 starters, crab cakes and calamari delicious. Mains, fish pasta, veal, sea bass and monkfish all lovely. Desserts sour cherry and almond tart and lemoncello ice cream mmmmm. All in all great. It isn't a cheap restaurant and we use it for special occasions only, but you get what you pay for.

Spent a great evening with friends here recently but I have to say, the food has gone considerably downhill since we last ate here. The crab cakes were more potatoes than anything and barely tasted of crap. The pasta dish I had was okay, but extremely average and not even a patch on what you can get at Prezzo! The... More

this was our second visit, this time with a large group of 20 friends. The service from the moment we arrived and at the table was excellent. The food wonderful with something for everybody and the beautiful Italian wines to accompany were excellent. Highly recommended. We will be back again soon.

Had a beautiful meal can highly recommend the lemon meringue.. staff couldn't do enough for us and although it was extremely busy once our orders were taken we didn't wait too long for our food which was superb. Definitely worth a return visit

Had been meaning to come here for a while after it being recommended, and wasn't disappointed. Would have given 5 stars but we felt a bit forgotten towards the end and sat around empty plates for a while! Will definitely be returning!

Heard good things about San Giovanni so visited earlier this week with my boyfriend. It was very quiet when we arrived at 6pm, but numerous more tables arrived soon after. Waiter was pacing around the room as we browsed the menu which was slightly unnerving. Ordered garlic bread to share for starters, very tasty and good sized portion. My boyfriend... More

We had been looking forward to dining at San Giovanni for many months as our school run takes us past there and so a romantic birthday meal was just the excuse needed to leave the kids at home and indulge ourselves. Due to an early table time, the place was relatively quiet when we arrived, which allowed me to take... More

I had been looking forward to dining here. I had heard some good reports. The restaurant itself is beautiful and when my husband and I arrived we enjoyed a premeal drink in the bar. We enjoyed our main courses, I had pizza and my husband had the lobster pasta dish. We shared some salads and these were beautifully presented and... More
