“Nice food but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Great healthy options, sandwiches, baguettes, ciabatta, jacket potatoes, salad etc. All handmade in front of you which makes the service a bit slow sometimes.
I normally go with friends and with our toddlers as they have plenty of space for push chairs and high chairs. Staff sometimes help with the bringing the food to you if you have your hands full with children!
Its all quite expensive but its a lot healthier and more choice than other cafes.

“Fast food in a shopping centre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Fareham shopping centre has numerous outside(inside) eateries. All much of a muchness, food here was not bad but a bit pricey. They do snacks and main meals so you take your choice. Average while your out shopping food.

“Truly refreshing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our place of choice in Fareham. The shopping Mall has an excellent choice of coffee shops (the usual multiples) but this one stands out, not only for its coffee, its sandwiches and filled rolls and its salads etc. but especially for the standard of service. Whoever is responsible for staff training should be awarded a medal. The lasses who serve in this cafeteria are the friendliest, most efficient and the best I have ever come across.
Giardino's will always be our choice wherever we dine out even if it means going out of our way to find a branch.

“Lovely italian style sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

Been here several times, lovely coffee and milkshakes and a great selection of lunch Italian style sandwiches with lots of choice of fillings and good jacket potatoes. Staff are polite only negative I would say is that it is a bit overpriced.
