Ate here on the Sunday evening. Very busy but the staff seemed to cope very well. My husband had a fish dish which looked very nice. Great location near the Marina. Would definitely go back. I would suggest you book if you have the time.

Popped in for a meal before getting the ferry back to the UK. Both the pizza and gluten free pasta were excellent. The seafood pasta was packed with all sorts of fish. The service was lovely and helpful.

Family reunion and enjoyed a great meal except for woeful gluten free pasta. Dry, no sauce and really disappointing for our 2 gluten free family members. Those of us having pizzas enjoyed a delicious meal

Lovely busy restaurant with friendly staff. Quite tight for space but that reflects it local popularity. It's the first Italian restaurant I have been in that makes its own pizzas but serves garlic bread as 2 slices of ordinary sliced bread! That was a disappointing...More

Went out for a walk with the family. Had chosen another restaurant but when we got there it was closed (for sale). Giovannis was next on our list for a cheerful family dinner. I literally have not been in 20 years. Food was lovely, staff...More
