Had a lovely meal with my partner while visiting The Rocks! Our food was very yummy! Tho garlic bread was bland.. Pizza had lots of flavour & topping! Service wasn't great! Very rude waiter did not make us feel welcomed.. Would probably look for some where else to eat next time.. Or take it away!

Great casual restaurant for family dining. Extensive menu with all the Italian favorites. The pizzas were great and the service friendly and attentive. We got there early and the place was nearly empty - by 7.30 it was close to full.

Good service, pizza was to our liking and lasagna was terrific. Had one tiramisu(great) and spumoni ice cream( so-so). Certainly not a bad stop . As everything, eating in Sydney is $$$$$$.....

Yesterday five of us went for a Christmas lunch to Giovanni's Restaurant and Pizzeria. The table was set for 5 (3 on one side and 2 on the other). When I requested the manager to put one on the head of the table instead of 3/2, his response was: In your country you may want less space! I was totally taken back and asked hm to repeat what he said. He said the same thing again. We almost walked out, however being a Xmas lunch getting a restaurant booking is not easy. When I complained to the Manager, his response was that I have heard this incorrectly!
What a shame that this Italian Owner and Manager shows such racism in this market when business is tough and his restaur was half empty.
We will never return to such an establishment especially with this type of arrogance and racism.
Be careful this restaurant waiter/manager may upset your festive or celebrations with such brash behaviour.
The food is nothing special, the attitude disgusting. If you are from another country, be careful. This is not Australian and this owner and waiter need to know.
