First visit to this chippy after hearing such good things and it didn't disappoint. Food was being freshly cooked while we were in the shop. We ordered chicken pakora, mushrooms and a portion of chips. Plenty for the 2 of us and all fresh tasting. Friendly service too from the staff in the shop. We collected in person rather than...

We ordered food for delivery from here & waited 2hrs & 10mins for it to be delivered .I phoned them 1hr & 10mins after ordering & they told me they had just left & were on there way. It only took them 1hr to deliver to my door when I'm 15mins away. Will not be going back there again.

For our local family run chippy who have been established for over 40 years you can't fault them in any way. The queue to get served is always out the door at Giovanni's - need I say more! In reading other reviews I see this Fish & Chip shop is being confused with a Restaurant - which it is not.

Need I say more than what's in the title? This is a very busy local take away. Serves great tasty fresh food. The staff despite being busy and under pressure are always cheery and friendly.

A few weeks ago we got fish suppers delivered and we're disappointed the fish didn't taste fresh and was a bit fishy. Fish suppers usually amazing from here. Got fish suppers delivered tonight again and yet again fish was fishy and didn't taste fresh. Really disappointed as fish suppers from here are usually so amazing. Batter wasn't as crispy and...

I recently had a pre-concert meal at Giovanni's and the service was amazing. The food was just 1st class. Every mouthful was delicious and the wine was exquisite. The restaurant staff were extremely friendly and every welcoming, the wine was always topped up which was a bonus for us. Fantastic restaurant, I honestly can not wait to go back

without doubt Giovannis and their staff have the best chip shop in Edinburgh. Fresh food to choose from, wether you want traditional fish & chip shop food, kebab's, pizza's, burgers or Italian pasta's, you won't find it better anywhere else
