I rarely eat out in the Oceanside area as there are not many options that appeal to me (from experience). However, a friend and I decided to try Giovanni's recently as neither of us had been there in several years. Well worth the visit. We...More

We have eaten here a few times now and the food is always delicious. Quiet and relaxing atmosphere with excellent service. Great selection of wines and menu items are scrumptious and well priced. We have enjoyed lunches and evening meals here.

Why in the world did you close for lunch? What a shame, for the community and the regulars. Are you not part of the town and community of Qualicum Beach? I find it hard to believe that you would close for lunch because of staff shortage, why don't you work, after all you are the owners? Money doesn't come for free, or does it? At least keep the lounge open and serve pizzas.
