“The best experience we had in Vienna”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

After a busy morning walking around Vienna, we've decided to have lunch at Pizzeria Giovanni.
It was a little hard to find, we got there thanks to the TripAdvisor offline app (a must have by the way!).
When we got there the door was opened but all tables empty, a bit strange being the n.º 6 restaurant on TripAdvisor! The owner came and explained us that they only open for dinner... But since we were there and the oven was still on, he could cook us some pizzas if we want!
It felt so god being away from home, but having someone being so nice to us!
I have to say that apart from the owners friendliness, that was the best meal we had in Vienna.
If you enjoy Italian food, as much as we do, you will not regret stopping by.

Make reservation, the place is small, but very cozy.
P.S. In spite of the Vienna prices this was not an expensive restaurant.

“Great food. Great service”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant as it was near our hotel and highly rated on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed.
The service was excellent as was the food. Typical Italian fare but well cooked and presented.
The owner took a personal interest in us and made us feel very welcome. A great place to eat and relax.

“An excellent find!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We visited here over new year as a result of recommendations on TripAdvisor. We weren't disappointed! Gionvanni's is a fantastic family run Italian restaurant on a quiet side street in the Spittelberg area of Vienna. The vegetarian pizza was the best I have ever had! The pasta dishes were also incredible as was the pannacotta dessert - homemade with mango sauce. Lovely! We would be back here without hesitation if ever in Vienna again. The friendly service of the owner and his wife was first rate.

“Charming Italian”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Lovely little restaurant tucked away in a side street so you wouldn't easily find it if you didn't know it was there. Went there once when we were in Vienna a year ago but didn't have the chance to go back until our recent trip. Went there twice and would have gone more if we had longer. The atmoshere is warm and welcoming, the second time we went we were greeted like old friends. Food has been consistantly good everytime. Lovely pizza and the gnocchi filled with cheese was wonderful even my meat eating boyfriend liked it. The house white wine is very good. Great food, nice ambience all for a reasonable price I would definately go back next time I am in Vienna.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We ate at Giovanni's following Trip Advisor recommendation. It was superb. Very friendly atmosphere and great food. They recommended the house wine (white) and I wasn't sure (I'm fussy about wine) and it was really good. We had pasta - which was fresh not the dried stuff - but the pizzas also looked great. A great find and we'll certainly go back. Excellent food and excellent value for money
