Had a really nice meal here on 30th Dec. Table booked for 7pm but they sat us at 6:15 when we arrived early Staff were friendly and service good. Only 1 point to note was that my wife felt her prawn starter was not cooked enough to her liking. Even though the chef said they were cooked he did cook... More

Visited our favourite Italian again last night. As ever, a very warm welcome, attentive service and first class meal with fantastic atmosphere. We really can't recommend this restaurant highly enough! Do give it a try for a genuine authentic and delicious Italian experience...(do book in advance if you can so as not to be disappointed as it is so popular)..... More

I have been in the food industry all my life and as a meat producer believe we have some of the finest produce in the world. However living on the south side of Birmingham have found very few restaurants that can take what we produce and turn it into a fantastic dining experience, until we found Giovanni. I have been...

One of the best home cooked Italian meals you will ever taste. Giovanni & his wife use real family recipes passed down the generations!! Well worth every penny

Been here a few times as its just a short walk from home. Previously its been fine but nothing special. What a pleasant surprise to go there again last night to find that the food, service etc were outstanding. It has just won Best Italian in the Midlands and well deserved too! Will definitely be going back soon.

The place was clean and bright. The Lasagne was excellent! The staff were attentive and helpful. Parking is a bit of a problem but there is parking... More
