“Good portions but nothing extraordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Had dinner at don giovanni after reading he reviews here. Located on roof top of Hotel Corbelli, reaching the restaurant is not an issue but finding parking is difficult. Semi open, the sea breeze is very refreshing. The veg pizza was delicious and the gnocchi was well cooked. The servings are pretty large and we were unable to finish what we ordered.
The Tiramisu was a huge letdown as it was made using chocolate flavored sponge and had mousse on top of it. On the whole I would say the whole experience was just about ok and not something that is a must do when you visit pondicherry

“terrace fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

The restaurant is on the terrace of a hotel on busy mission st. It is run by an italian and the food is cooked by them too. It had good breads, pasta and pizzas. the ravioli was good too. the portions are fairly large and satisfying. The tiramisu was good too.

If you ever wondered what miracles can land of your plate, You need to get here. The place is rusty, but so full of warmth that one falls in love with it. And the food is simply heavenly. And the service prompt and pleasant. Highly recommended

“Highly Recommended for Italian Cuisine in Pondicherry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

Don Giovanni serves very reasonably priced authentic Italian food in an extremely relaxing ambiance. At lunchtime, you can enjoy a great view of Pondicherry. In the evening, dinner Don Giovanni's is a wonderful vacation from Pondy's hustle and bustle. Don Giovanni's serves some of Pondy's best pizza, and the pasta dishes are extremely satisfying. Vegetarians and non-vegetarians will be very happy here.
