We visited Carlo Govi instead of Lo Scalco Grasso, which was closed. Interier looks very nice, you see a lot of details. What about food? As a starter we had Mantua starter, selection of 6 various starters, polenta with fat, polenta with trout, mantua salami, local bread and so on. Absolutely delicious. You must take their pasta. We had ravioli... More

This is a tucked away oasis of good taste. The ambience is polished, with attention to details and an impressive array of b&w pictures of VIPs visiting the city, some of them nested in the wooden ceiling for a unique effect. The food is tasty, well prepared and served in almost record time, unless the recipe s calling for extended... More

Imagine a dinner evening for a wedding anniversary. Where to go? in the restaurant downstairs where usually we go ... Nooo "that" night we can not go there! .. While seeking a proper restaurant, I reminded what I heard from a former colleague met recently: "Do you remember Carlo Govi? Well he opened a restaurant in Mantua few years ago,... More

I saw the recommendation on TripAdvisor, but my visit was only in my last day in Mantova, what made my Goodbye even better! The environment is nice and quite, service is perfect! As entry, I had eggplant with quinoa and it was amazing! As main course, I had 1/2 pasta and it tasted great as well! Finishing, pistacchio ice cream... More

11 of us visited this restaurant without a reservation and to our surprise, everything went very smoothly. Since non of us spoke any Italian, the owner himself took care of us. He was friendly and very patient. The service is fast and organised. The food was impeccable! Every Single Dish was superb. Perfect size portions, and the fact that you... More

It has been a pleasure to have lunch and dinner there, the service is fast and organised, but the best part is the delicious food they serve. Moreover the bill is always honest and there you can eat very high quality dishes without spending a lot.

We made reservations for Carlos Govi's based on the other reviews here. We were greeted by the owner personally on August 27, 2015 and directed to the lovely garden in back, complete with 300 year old olive trees. We like to eat earlier than the natives so we had the whole garden to ourselves. The food was simply outstanding and... More

Really superb meal, great amuse bouche of polenta with asparagus, and basil dressing, starter timbale of vegetables, really good. Then we had to try the local speciality of pumpkin pasta. Really sweet, unusual and delicious. Local Lake fish with potato and herb crust followed by fantastic chocolate and orange pudding with Grande Marnier. Great bottle of Soave Classico. Thank you...

We had two lovely dinners (on successive nights) at Carlo Govi. It deserves all of the plaudits that it has received. The food was excellent, hospitality was delightful, and the outdoor setting (at the back of the restaurant) was exceedingly pleasant. A thoroughly relaxing and civilised experience. Highly recommended.
