Not sure what is going on here. The ingredients are here, and the place is busy. But the autopilot was left on and turnover is key. I guess any eatery in a mall is bound to suffer the trough syndrome. Eat and move on. The one shinning spot is the pasta, which is cooked al dente with a variety of... More

Giovanni's is situated on the Green Point strip virtually opposite the stadium. It's great little deli offering a wide range of products including a sumptuous selection of cooked options as well as baked goods. They have a small coffee bar and you'll always find a crowd of local hipsters shmoozing over a drink! Enjoy!

This Restaurant is located in The Waterstones Village (shopping centre) in Somerset west. This is our second visit to Giovanni as a couple. We chose to sit outside of Restaurant at Lunch time in the Mall. The Seafood Paella can be recommended. In my view this dish is enough for two persons. They also have delicious Pizzas. The Seafood soup... More

Great food and service. We were the first customers at Giocanni's eleven years ago and have never had a meal that hasn't been first rate.
