We used to love this restaurant when the previous owners ran it as a friendly authentic eaterie with great food, generous portions and an appreciation for their clientele. Unfortunately after a number of visits since being under new management I have to say I have come away more disappointed with each visit. On a recent visit ordered calamari for starters... More

I travelled from Toronto, Canada to London, England just to surprise my Mom on her 70th Birthday...and we celebrated at Giovanni - my Mom's favorite place. The food was excellent, the service impeccable and with that Italian flair everyone loves. I recommend this friendly place for any occasion! Can't wait to go back there... My complements to Anita and her... More

Ate here, delicious and....definitely recommended. Very good value for a tasty dinner. Did call ahead as one of the party is vegan, was told on telephone that couldn't be catered for, at all...which was a bit disappointing as most places can at least rustle a half decent salad, if nothing else. On arrival, the extremely attentive waiter, who was fab,... More

Many restuarants are fine with service and staff are helpful, although at times they because we were at the top of the stairs they would constantly come up to check things were ok. I'm not sure showing the football is what I wanted for a semi romantic dinner! The service is good, but where this restuarant suffers is the food.... More

Tried this Italian Pizzeria/Restaurant, which had been recommended to us. Booked up, but was not full, even if reasonably busy. I have to say that my partner & I found the food and place somewhat average. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing special either. Could have been just about any ordinary Italian restaurant in a high street. We had a... More

We visit this restaurant regularly but the portions are getting smaller and smaller. Last Saturday we went for an evening meal the food was good but the portions are so small since new owners have taken over. Shame this reflects on the food, service was ok.

Lovely food but felt like waiter really didn't want to serve us. He was really happy and cheerful with all the other customers and as soon as came to our table, he literally wouldn't even smile. We were waiting ages for him to come over to our table even after we'd caught his attention. We feel that he really ruined... More

LOVE Giovannis...Old school service and beautiful food. Best pizzas in the area and always so lively and buzzing at the weekends. Owner and staff all so lovely and really look after you. Highly recommended and certainly need to book for the weekends.
