I love pasta and Arrabiata is my favourite pasta dish so I ordered this on both occasions. On my second visit I requested extra chilli and I found... More

One of my top 5 restaurants in solihull - but defiantly the top Italian - food is simply delicious. We have used this restaurant on so many occasions and it never fails to dissapoint. We used this for a surprise 40th Party and it was absolutely fantastic. The staff are always on hand to make your evening special

I really enjoy Giovani. I go back to when he was in Kings Heath in Birmingham which would be impossible to replicate the ambience. However the food and service remain the same friendly and reliable. The food is of a very high standard. The place as a good atmosphere and I love it. Real Italian.
