We have been customers at Giovannis for many years. Peter and his team are always incredibly welcoming and he is an fantastic host. Food is excellent and consistently of very high quality, portions generous and they always have interesting takes on traditional dishes. Cloudious served us at our last visit and balanced just the right amount of attention without being overbearing or intrusive. Highly recommended. Please book they are very popular.

If you are ever in Cape Town, South Africa, make your way down to a Cape Town institution Giovanni's. You can eat in - select your food from the deli counter, or take out. Over the years they have added an array of fabulous food for all tastes - lots of healthy, yummy vegetarian choices, as well as excellent meat & fish in various forms from curries to bakes to schnitzels. The deli is extensive and superbly stocked - I guess it is the place to buy anything considered a delicacy.
Everything in store is fresh, tasty and well displayed. Well done Giovanni's Cape Town for a truly international noteworthy delicatessen.

We had an early dinner at Giovanni's last night. Frankly I was not impressed. Service is slow but friendly. The food we were served were mediocre, to say the least. Veal with a creamy mushroom sauce was bland and the very expensive piece of salmon with a butter and parsley sauce was so sour is completely overpowered the fish, which was well done and not medium to rare as I requested.
Maybe the better option would have been a pizza....at Colcachia!

The Restaurant is stunning, its in a very convenient mall, close to all the necessary shops and the food is absolutely fantastic. Every time you have a meal at Giovanni's its of the highest standard and beautifully served. The Staff are well trained and extremely pleasant, they understand the menu when asked about certain dishes.

We read about this restaurant on Tripadvisor and popped in on a Sunday evening after a day out in the winelands. Good, friendly service. Interesting menu with nice variations not found in it her restaurants. My husband had a tomato, mozzarella, bacon, Brie and cranberry pizza, for which he gave a thumbs up. I had a Lasagne which was very tasty and an ample serving. Will definitely recommend this venue.
