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.

Great food and service. Waiters attended to us in a quick fashion and noticed our two year old needed food sooner than us 😁
Would definitely recommend Giovanni’s!

An evening meal, hadn't been to Giovanni's for long time and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food, service and ambience were all excellent. It was a very comfortable experience and the "distancing" restrictions were sensible and not too intrusive.

Great to remind ourselves how much we like it here.

This was the 2nd time we had eaten at this restaurant within 2 weeks, which of course speaks volumes for them.

The food was delicious and the service was fantastic on both occasion's.

We will try and make it a once a month treat.

Lunch with friends. We chose from the a la carte menu (we didn’t fancy the table d’hote). The calzones were huge! I had the small portion lobster ravioli which was delicious.

The tables are positioned far too closely during Covid-19 for my liking - I’d be surprised if there was anything more than a metre between us and the next table. It was all just too close for comfort.
However the food and service were both excellent, as we’ve always found it to be.

A birthday treat at Giovanni’s in Knutsford.
The service was excellent and our food was delicious, my husband had the steak and peppercorn sauce and I had the sea bass both were very tasty and filling.
The waitress was very pleasant and friendly with a lovely smile.

The food quality was excellent, both starters and main courses.
Service was a little hit and miss, possibly fewer people waiting table due to Covid etc.
Lovely place for family meals etc, and very good value for money.
Busy, cafe style atmosphere if that is what you’re after

We visited in a party of six, including one child. Our plates were full, well presented and taste was good. Whilst most in the party were happy with their meals, one found their food to be too cool.

This restaurant was special to us for sentimental reasons.
We returned for a birthday celebration but left very disappointed.
It was midweek so not busy.
However was given an unpleasant table between two mirrored pillars.
We were then forgotten and sat with no drink order or menus for 20 mins. Whilst staff walked passed and then proceeded to set new tables for the next day.
We finally caught somebodies attention.
Food was lovely as always and the waiter was very pleasant. However we wasn’t offered any more drinks and by the time desert was offered the restaurant was empty and staff nowhere to be seen so we passed.
I asked for a balloon or birthday sprinkles for the table in the afternoon which they agreed to but nothing was there on arrival.
Overall a pretty sad birthday experience and time to move on to another Knutsford restaurant
