Three of us for an evening meal. Two pasta and one steak. All superb; the steak was first class and cooked to perfection. They never dissappoint.

“Still our favourite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

After a 4 week long holiday in Europe, visiting many , many restaurants, me and my wife decided to invite all our children with their families to have lunch today at Giovanni's..and what a wonderful occasion it turned out to be. We were 8 adults in the group and had different types of food, ..from steaks, oxtail, pastas and pizzas to salads....and the affordable good wine was a bonus.
As always, ...and we eat at Giovanni’s at least once a month,.. our booking was perfect, everyone’s food was very good, the service as good and friendly as always. After paying an arm and a leg for food and wine in Europe I paid the bill with a smile.

“THANK YOU CHEF PELLE.....Wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Our local Italian restaurant and it certainly beats a meal we had recently in a highly rated Italian restaurant in Dallas,Tx!!!!!
Pelle is a great Chef and all the staff are frendly and efficient...Peter is unfailingly warm and welcoming even on a very busy night.
We have never had a bad meal and the house wine from Flagstone was equally good.

“Very warm welcome and great food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Me and my wife have been lots of times at Giovannis. We always enjoy the good pasta and pizza at a valuable price. This time we have been served by Ishmael and we must say: that was a perfect service- thanks a lot !
The place is always crowed and the atmosphere is not romantic - but to enjoy italian food it's the best place in Somerset West.
