During our recent visit, we had (as usual) a great time. The pasta we had, was top notch!!!!! The pizza was so different from the franchise stuff And the staff was great. We will continue to stop over at Giovanni's when in the area If you have never been there for great Italian food.......where have you been?

Good food, good service. I'd happily go there again. There were 9 of us and we were well looked after, all our food arrived together, the drinks were topped up and the bride-to-be got a special dessert.

This is the second time we visited on mother's day and left happy and satisfied. Even though the restaurant was packed, the service was very good and attentive. The food enjoyed by all three generations from pizza to bone marrow to cheese cake. Will go again.

Last night the most beautiful woman on earth accompanied me to your restaurant. Despite the cold weather and the fact that the inside of the restaurant was fully booked we had a ball of a time.

This is definitely my favourite restaurant. The buzzing atmosphere of people enjoying themselves will put anyone in a good mood. The service is very good, the staff make you feel right at home. Last night I chose something different, Eisbein. Very happy to find the portion a size I could attempt to finish with really crispy outside. Definitely worth having... More
