Genuine Italian cuisine in a warm, friendly atmosphere. David was a great waiter and looked after us extremely well. It was interesting to meet some local folks whilst dining who gave us some helpful tips for places to visit including the NIWRA wildlife rescue park which is a hidden gem.

I went there for the first time in 5 years and the inviting atmosphere was the same, as was the table layout. We sat too close to the table next to us and would not have been able to have a private conversation, if they had not just finished and left. There were several empty tables at dinner hour on a Friday, so I wondered how they are doing. Evidently the chef was off that night, and while the prawns were tasty, the veal dish I had was thin and bland. The vegetables were good, but the veal was buried under a porcini sauce and never survived. We split a creme brulee and did not finish it. Lacked taste impact. The service was excellent...efficient, friendly, and considerate.

came here with friends for dinner, their invite. their adult kids like coming here, to the lounge. a small room, separate from the restaurant. bistro tables mixed in the room. we missed happy hour by 10 minutes, good prices for wine. each of us ordered a small pizza . the second pizza was 50% off. everyone happy with their choice. and enough for me to take home. a friendly, efficient server. busy. maybe 12 people came in for takeaway. attractive decor. busy, glad we had a reservation. my first visit here and very pleased. my last visit to the restaurant was not a good one, years ago. new owners since, so i came away very happy. will spread the word!

Without a reservation, we still managed to get into Giovanni's on Valentines Day. We sat at the bar and had an excellent pizza, engaging in friendly conversation with the bar tender. Giovanni's made the effort to make us feel welcome even thought they were already full with patrons.
