Giovanni’s is an absolute must for connoisseur’s of Italian food. Our staff have worked in the finest restaurants across Italy; so you’re truly guaranteed an unforgettable Italian dining experience, in both food & service.
Our restaurant is housed in the beautiful Grade II listed building formerly known as the Old Post Office, on King Street in Knutsford. Richard Harding Watt influenced the town’s architecture by delivering a little piece of Italy for everyone to appreciate, up and down King Street, notably in the design of the memorial tower overlooking Giovanni’s.

We come to Giovannis several times in the year. Usually special occasions. Each and every time we receive friendly, prompt, excellent service. The staff are always happy and joyful and approachable and just make the experience relaxed and enjoyable. Never had a bad meal here. The food is phenomenal. Best Italian ever!!

One of our tables starter forgotten, then it arrived and the rest of the tables starters were starting to go cold as they didn’t want to start without. Charged for a main portion of ravioli rather than a starter portion, very messy service from male waiters who were leaning over us and slatting plates down without speaking. Paid bill and left promptly as we didn’t enjoy our experience sadly.

We were seated promptly when we arrived and then were ignored as soon as we sat down. After 15-20 minutes of being seated and being ignored (we weren't even asked if we would like a drink) I ended up going over to the waiter and asked him to send someone over to take our drinks order. He was apologetic and sent someone over. When the food arrived, it was delicious but it was such a shame that the many young waitresses on shift seemed to spend more time talking to each other and wandering around the restaurant aimlessly rather than serving and attending to customers. It was a disappointing visit.

I must admit it was a midweek evening but from the minute we walked through the door our experience was very pleasurable. We were greeted immediately and shown to our table, service was quick and very helpful. I even ordered the wrong starter for my wife, which was totally my fault but they scurried round and had it changed immediately. Our main courses were wonderful although we couldn't finish.
Top all that the refurbishment is outstanding

Excellent food cooked to perfection. Fish dishes are superb and excellent range of wines. Not the cheapest restaurant around but worth paying the extra every now and again.
