Came here with my wife for a Friday night date dinner. Super warm service throughout the meal. We had the antipasti to start, lovely! I had the roast lamb which was recommended and was perfectly pink, my wife had the chicken in a tomato sauce which was delicious. The chocolate fondant pudding was outstanding! We had a bottle of the... More

We have been visiting this restaurant on a regular basis since moving to Dickens Heath two years ago. But we remember Giovanni well, as we held our Wedding Reception in his Kings Heath Restaurant 30 years ago ! The very friendly and efficient service is always most welcoming, and the food always delicious. We are lucky to have a Restaurant... More

We paid our first visit to Giovanni's on our Wedding Anniversary and my husbands birthday. It was a weekday evening, and the restaurant was not particularly busy. However, the food was good and the staff had time to chat with us about Italy, places to visit,(Italy is one of our favourite holiday destinations),the local cuisine, and we discussed the photographs...

Visited yesterday with a friend, we were served drinks and water and then waited almost 30 min till the waiter arrived and took our order. In the meantime people who arrived earlier then us had been served! Just unbelievable, no apology, nothing... Food was good, nothing too exceptional. Will certainly not be coming back again.

Went here for a family celebration booked by someone else, so I didn't really know what to expect and with so many restaurants claiming to be authentic I was a bit apprehensive. Turns out there was no need, the service was efficient and the staff friendly, professional & accommodating. The food was excellent, although I found my risotto a little... More
