I hired Giovanni's for a birthday party. From start to finish - the team were first class. The food and service on the day for the entire party was excellent, including my youngest two year old to the in laws. Service across the entire day was warm, friendly and well timed. The food was even better than I hoped. Seriously... More

We visited on a busy Saturday night. Food was absolutely delicious and having previously worked in Italy, some of the most authentic I've eaten back in Britain! Service was polite and staff were friendly, but we were made to feel very overlooked in comparison to fellow diners on other tables who were obviously regulars, and were better looked after. Audibly... More

Charming place with charming staff. Good food and nice choice of wines, what more could you ask for? The chef comes out to see if everybody is happy. Worth a visit.

I was celebrating a special birthday with five very close friends. I had been recommended to try this restaurant by quite a few people, and when I discovered that it was 'son of' the original Giovanni's in Kings Heath where we ate on a number of occasions in the Seventies, that clinched the matter. I arrived at midday on a... More

Visited Giovanni's for an early valentines meal. An amazing meal and wine. We've never had a bad meal here. The service is excellent and the chef even came out to ask how the food was. Fantastic!
