I'd booked the day before, seeking an authentic Italian restaurant for a quiet and informal meeting with Univercity top management. Close enough for him to walk from the campus, quiet enough not to be surrounded by students dining on less than $10 a head.

Good food as well as being authentic and good value. the service is always personalised as well as efficient. Had the Tortellini boscaiola, and Special lamb cutlets - outstanding as usual. Friends had Fettuccine Marinara and grilled barramundi and all cleaned our plates. Been going for years and will hopefully go for many more.

I have to travel about an hour to get to this restaurant, I always ring first to make sure they have the Orange sauce whole de-boned duck on the menu for dinner that night.

Great restaurant, oysters are always outstanding, my husbands favorite is the brains when they are on the special menu. Great family atmosphere, service very friendly and nothing is ever a problem, a must to go there

I have been to Giovanna many times over the years and the Pizza and Pasta are never disappointed me. The Pizza base has the right thickness and the pizza itself cooked just right

This restaurant is a fantastic choice if you are looking for a relaxing and casual night out. The menu is not adventurous but that's OK, you should be able to find all of your favourite Italian dishes. One of the other advantages of the restaurant being 'old school' is the servings are very generous and the prices reasonable. Food was... More

I tried Giovanna for the first time recently and was not disappointed. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the staff are super helpful and welcoming. The food is absolutely beautiful and the ambiance inside the restaurant is so authentic you would swear you were in Italy! The prices are very reasonable and I was delightfully surprised when...
