We love the friendly ambience of The Lounge at Giovann's, where we go for the best pizza ever! We are never disappointed with our delicious pizza and the fantastic service, always a friendly word from the staff and owners. For an upscale dinner or casual pizza in the lounge, Giovvanni is the place to Go!

The food was quite good. Two of us had the lasagna one had a pizza...not bad at all. But the service was BAD. We entered the restaurant and there was only one customer sitting at one table. The waitress continued chatting to the customer as we stood waiting. The she walked over behind the bar, saw us, and continued chatting... More

I came with friends on a Saturday night and had a great dinner. The wild sockeye salmon was nicely grilled, not over cooked, with a cream of horseradish sauce, roast potatoes and carrots. Two of my friends had the beautiful salad with pickled beets and goats milk cheese. My dessert of chocolate almond torte was rich and not over-sized so... More

My husband and I just finished a delicious dinner, our waitress Veronica was absolutely fantastic. My husband and I had the salmon, it was yummy, we also had the baked apple with ice cream, which was so tasty. A very nice place for a meal.

went for a late lunch. had a pasta dish, calamari and a fish burger with fries. too much salt on the calamari, fries and pasta . i guess because it caters to a senior population?

We were out to Giovannis for dinner and were very pleased with the results. Both of us had the same dish. Penne with spicy sausage - it was spicy and may be too much for some, but we thought it was delicious. Service was good and price was very reasonable for wine and dessert all totalled.

We stopped here for dinner on the way to Nanaimo. We had a great waitress who was greatly embarrassed by the fact that the cook served me a different dish from what I ordered and refused to serve the menu item I had ordered. When I asked the waitress to check with the kitchen she came back with the message... More
