Dear Max 2866,

Thank you for your kind words! I am sorry for not responding sooner.
I am so pleased that you were welcomed in the way we always try to welcome people when they take the time and trouble to visit our little coffee shop and ice cream parlour. It is a great location and with the weather as it is now, then to sit outside and watch how our little market town "ticks" is an experience in itself!
I am pleased that you find the coffee and ice cream is to your liking - we are quite proud of it ourselves!
Thank you once again and as always, safe travelling.

Giovanni's.

Dear Shart7,

Many thanks for taking the time to write a review of Giovanni's and I apologise for not responding sooner.
I am pleased that you were served in a way that we would expect to be served ourselves and that you found our product was to your liking. It has been good ice cream weather and although the season may be drawing to a close, we continue to sell it all the year round. We hope that should you pass this way again, then you might sample our coffee or a couple of the other flavours of ice cream we offer. (The salted caramel is probably my favourite!)
Thanks again and safe travelling.

Giovanni's.

Unbelievably creamy ice cream and incredibly nice proprietors. Honestly, the salted caramel with chocolate chips is to die for!!! Giovanni's made our day. This place is a must stop if you are anywhere remotely near Bridgnorth

Hey Melissa M!

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write a review of Giovanni's.
More importantly, we are so pleased that you found everything to your liking. I am sorry for not replying sooner.
I think the salted caramel is my favourite as well (though I am Biased!)Aand has certainly been selling well, along with the Mint Choc Chip and the Rum and Raisin which are currently our best sellers.
Thanks once again and we hope that you will see us again soon.

Giovanni's.

The reviews were so good that we tried the ice cream and were very disappointed. The name Italian led us to expect Italian quality ice cream but, unfortunately, the mint chocolate chip was distinctly lacklustre.

Dear lovefoodandfun,

Many thanks for your review of Giovanni's
I am sorry that the Mint Choc Chip did not come up to expectations for you. The ice cream is made by Bennetts in Worcestershire using the milk from Bennetts own dairy herd, as it has been for decades.
Ice cream made using only the best natural ingredients can sometimes be more subtle than continental products, depending on the flavour, but this does not detract from the quality. We have certainly not had issues with flavour before.
I notice that you give a poor value rating, when looking at similar products in the town, I think we are possibly the most competitive.
Because we pride ourselves in the product we sell, we would rather customers feel that they have bought exactly what they wanted. To this end, you only had to ask and we would have been more than happy to provide a taster sample (or even several!) Before you made your purchase.

Thanks once again and as always we wish you safe travelling.

Giovanni's

After a long walk in the hot weather this place just sums up the time spent here. My girlfriend absolutely loves this place. Quality sandwiches and some tapas like extras which is an added bonus and refreshing ice cream to end your stay here. Will certainly recommend this place.

Dear paulmcnulty,

Thanks for your review! You are right, the weather has been well suitedd to ice cream for the last few days and we are so pleased you did the right thing, in trying what many believe to be the best around.
We do make all our light snacks fresh to order which is appreciated by our customers.
I don't know if you tried the coffee - an Italian blend, with beans freshly ground at Giovanni's to maximise a fresh and flavour.
Thanks once again and we wish you safe travelling and hope to be able to serve you again soon.

Giovanni's.
