“Perfect for a family celebration!”

Giovanni's came up trumps again with a wonderful ambience, superb service and great food. The birthday celebration planned for my godfather went swimmingly and all the extra special touches were much appreciated!

“Wonderful experience!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Every visit just tops the previous one! Try the avocado meringue dessert, wasabi kingklip, seafood pizza (best ever!) or marinara risotto. The steak and lamb shank are also great! If you are unsure of what to order, ask the owner to recommend you something or whip something up for you - they always go out of their way to give you a great culinary experience! Excellent service - although the menu seems a bit pricey in comparison to other restaurants in SW - you always get much more then what you pay for! End of the meal with a Grapa or cappuccino - excellent
