Enjoyed a good meal with friends. One of the day's specials was Fegato (liver) which I always have if available and it was good.

My wife and I rarely get to enjoy fine dining when abroad with our kids but we met friends who introduced us to this spot in Museum District. Great find. The service and food were superb. It is a relatively small restaurant so suggest reservations.

Great food, great service, great place to go. You must ask about the specials, they make the place even better.

Come to Giovanni for a neighbourhood pasta which is fresh and prepared with enthusiasm. The maitre d' is charming and obviously keen to please. The waitresses are on the clueless side and are unable to support the establishment. However, they are charmingly willing and the atmosphere more than compensates. All is enjoyable, from the tasty toasted bread when you arrive... More

The food at Giovanni is always (we visited half a dozen times during the summer) delicious and all the ingredients are fresh (believe me you can tell when they are not fresh as described in my other reviews). Our favorite starters are the shrimps with garlic and chili, the Burrata, and the salmon and avocado salad. For the main course... More

Just came back from dinner at Giovanni. The food is good and prices are reasonable. But the restaurant manager was so loud he kept clapping and speaking in a loud voice that absolutely spoiled our evening. The two waitresses that served us were nice but barely spoke English and are very inexperienced. With the right training they can work out.... More

Tucked away on a side street just a few blocks from Harrods, this small Italian restaurant owned by an Albanian family provided our group of 6 with an outstanding Italian meal. The Dover Sole (a special) was probably the best I have ever had. The Burata starter was equally noteworthy. Several in our group had pasta which was expertly prepared.... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
