This is my happy place when visiting CT. Simple bagel breakfasts are the best. Cappuchinos are normally good. Not happy about the chocolate flakes on top. They have all good products and their meatballs. Happy place with happy food.

we have been to Giovanni's for our past two visits to CT. Food is delicious and the options are endless. best lunch sandwiches and probably excellent for take away although we didn't do that. Seems to be a great place to have a cappuccino or espresso and hang out.
Friendly, nice staff.
One of the better food experiences even though it's very casual.

Best cappuccino in CT hands down! Food is also great and experience can be delightful if you can grab a seat at the bar and watch the world go by or pick up bits of conversations in Italian, French, German etc. Stock a great selection of overseas products.

Went in here and was not sure what to do as there is so much choice....eventually plucked up the courage to ask and the next thing we were seated outside in the mist cooled seating area with the guys making us the most delicious sandwiches ever....so much choice!!!

If you live close by, this can easily become your favourtie place to hang out, whether it is to enjoy good Italian coffee or eat from the deli bar counter (they have ready-made meals where you can choose your portions for eating on the spot or take-away). They make good breads, I love their baguettes the most! You'll find things you love to cook with but can't find easily in normal supermarkets such as really good chorizo, a variety of cheeses, charcuterie selection, rillettes, canard confit, tahini, graisse de canard, duck liver paté, paté de porc, artisan chocolate (Honest, etc), all kinds of bonbons and Italian sweets and delicacies, quail eggs, watermelon juice, carrot juices... It has a relaxed vibe, read newspapers, go solo, go with a friend, great for people-watching (celebrities and models...), easy to make friends there as people are friendly and you sit so close to them anyway... On scorching hot days, they also spray mist to keep you refreshed while you sit and enjoy your meal/coffee.
