This restaurant was recommended to us by a relative. Very good meal with attentive staff. Initially we were the only people in the place during early lunchtime but a few others came later. 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

Visiting home from America, I always try and take my local family to somewhere they have not been, in the past I've always hit it spot on great restaurants and this time, another winner. Super friendly greeting, table was ready and we stuck right in with the wine. Didn't recognize much on the standard wine list, but on the choice... More

Great service and wonderful food. There's a good selection of food and wine. The pasta was fabulous. I would say the best pasta dish I have ever eaten. Can't wait to return!

In Birmingham for Motorcycle Live and brought friends/clients to Giovanni's. Delicious food and the staff were lovely! The cannelloni tasty, the veges cooked perfectly and the tiramisu was to-die-for.

Wow, what a find. Absolutely fantastic Italian restaurant. Highly rated, and deservedly so. Had the Spaghetti Bolognese, and it was the best I've ever had. Hope to visit again soon and start working my way through the menu. Service was great too, and although I went at a lunchtime can imagine it's very busy in the evenings and would have... More

Walked past this place so many times and never went inside because the prices seemed a little steep on the menu signs outside and you can't really see what the place looks like through the windows. Heard so much good about it though so we tried it and were not disapoonted! Very good Italian food in a warm and friendly... More

Great tasting food from a wonderful chef. Staff are always helpful and friendly. Would recommend for a large party or for a quiet evening. There is additional parking at the back of the restaurant too.

The food is always very good and is reasonably priced. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Giovanni usually comes into the restaurant later in the evening to chat to customers and make sure everyone has had a great meal. The midday lunch deals are fantastic value and again great food. Parking is at rear of restaurant and can get... More
