During your holidays on Corfu island you can't miss a visit to the old town, amazing during the day and romantic during the night. Right in the center of Corfu old town, near the Liston and the "Spianada" you can find the Italian restaurant pizzeria Da Giovanni. Placed just next to the famous Kavalieri Hotel, the restaurant will offer you the choice to eat inside or to seat under the trees having your meal surrounded by the city park.

We came on the recommendation of taxi driver, certainly not disappointed!

We sat on the balcony sun setting, birds flying over head with a view of the water. We had some lovely food, wine, very nice location and good service. Would certainly recommend!

I love pizza, but are disappointed most of time visiting different places around . I met owner when I passed by earlier
In the day. I told him about my issue and he invited me to try the same evening. I did and was satisfied.
I tried the pizza Daviolo. Perfect . Thin, crispy around the edge and not a "lake" of sauce in the middle. Just enough hot for my taste. Love it.

Visited the place with my family (wife & 2 kids) an evening in late July. Not very crowded when we got there so no problem on settling on a table - staff helpful to accommodate us.
We ordered a pizza (good), pasta with squid ink (average), pasta with tomato sauce (indifferent) and a mushroom risotto which was the worse risotto we ever tasted! we had to give the plate back after having a very small taste of it. they didn't care to even ask what the problem was with the specific dish, let alone offering not to charge us for it.
we paid for the whole order (slightly on the high side I would assume but i would guess within the reasonable range for the city center which can be very busy). by the time we left late in the evening the place was almost packed and the staff was struggling to manage - we had to wait 15'-20' to get our check. don't think I will visit again.
