We went there on advise of a friend and were not disappointed ... I probably have eaten the best pasta ever and so did my 2yo ... We also had a tartar and a salad and really couldn't find something to complain about - great food quality. The only downside eventually ... some waiters could me a bit more enthusiastic... More

I went that restaurant just because of its high score and price. I hoped that if i would pay high in Porto Rotondo i could have the best. But i am telling you very sadly that, the kitchen of this place was very terrible. We ordered 4 plates from the a-la carte as starters. Whole was undelicious. Even food service... More

This is always a great spot for good food and wines in Porto Rotondo. Fresh products gently cooked to mantain the real flavours of the raw materials. A specific mention is to the ice creams. Absolutely amazing, probably the best I have tried in my life. Great!

My wife and I left this restaurant for last and we are glad we did. A very charming family run restaurant. Our waiter was also the owner and he made our night so much fun. The food was beautiful and the house made olive oil was the best I've ever had.

Lucky day. We went to Porto Rotondo on a rainy October day, when almost everything was closed. Not Da Giovannino! We were practically alone, got a warming welcome and the food was amazing (specially the spicy octopus we had as first course). It`s`not cheap, but it is worth it.

Went here with the family based on Trip Advisor recommendations. Very disappointed with overall experience. Felt like they couldn't get you in and out fast enough. Food expensive, pricey. Much better restaurants in the area than this! Not a great experience!

We had dinner at Da Giovannino and really enjoyed it. The service was great, the restaurant is smart without being over the top and the food was very good. It is probably the most expensive place in Porto Rotondo but by London prices not wildly over the top. Definitely worth a visit.

What an amazing dinner! I called ahead of time to let the restaurant know that my group was going to be a full group of 10 people, they told me it wasn't going to be a problem and that they appreciated the call in advance sure enough when wee got there the tables were set up perfectly for my group...
