Family of twelve ate here last night. Absolutely lovely, all had different dishes, not one complaint. Lots of really good authentic Italian food. Brilliant service, so on the ball, very attentive. Will be back next time I am home, and eating out with my family. Thank you Giovanni's for making our night special !

Have eaten here a few times over the years when visiting Malahide. Good reasonably priced pizza place suitable for families. Always busy so don't go if you are in a rush.
