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.

    I arrived before the rest of my party, was shown to my table and not offered any refreshment. I had to stop a passing waitress to ask for a drink. We shared a garlic bread to start and had to stop the waitress from taking it away with 2 pieces still left on the plate, which were definitely going to be eaten! The food was very good, as always. However after we finished dessert we were left with dirty plates on the table with staff walking past, looking at the plates but not taking them away. We paid the bill and left. We did not leave a gratuity as the service was poor. We probably won’t eat there again.

    Had phoned to ask about menus e.g. children's etc. Told yes they had these but this not produced or been offered one for our grandson. He had to accept a box to take half of his pizza away as a result of adult portion. The food good but were glad we had only one shared starter as the portion was huge Will maybe try again and see what the early bird menu is like for choice and lunch. Without grandchildren!

    We visit a lot but disappointing this time. Partners pizza had lot of pastry but very little topping and was not crispy. My seafood linguine was short on seafood except squid rings which were too plentiful

    We arrived expecting difficult parking but free on street parking was available a little way up the road after 1800 hrs. We walked down to the restaurant but decided to go for a drink in one of the very near by pubs first that was on the same street. The street was lovely and relaxing. We then went into the restaurant and was greeted by very friendly staff who quickly showed us to our table. The menu was extensive and it was not difficult to choose. Staff were excellent and very attentive all evening without us feeling rushed. Food was great. I had a chicken dish that was huge. My guest had a salmon dish that was smaller but she said was just the right size for her and delicious. We accompanied the meal with a fabulous salad. Wine choice was extensive. Would I go again despite it being an hour drive ... absolutely 👍

    Couldnt order a Prosecco by the glass. The food was late coming out, the bitter lemon was a year out of date. They apologised and all was well and gave us a glass of Prosecco as an apology. Not sure where they got it from - they don't do them by the glass.

    Usually rate this place 5/5. But this time the restaurant seemed unusually quiet for a Friday night. There were no specials and the food I did order was bland and although plentiful not overly enjoyable. The drinks were great and service was very good, although there did seem to be too many staff waiting each table.

    Celebrates a special birthday with friends. Portion sizes on the big side. I pre-ordered a surprise birthday cake which was served 'with a song' and was gorgeous. Very friendly staff. Lovely evening. Will definitely be visiting again.

    The food was good but serving a slow-roast lamb with sharp bits of plastic wasn't acceptable. And you didn't take that dish off the bill. So, not great.

    Our visit (4 diners on 2 April) was excellent in every way - bar one. The portion sizes are for Amazonian people and one of our group felt over-faced by the food sitting on their plate. Yes, the food really was good but …..

    Don’t use real flowers(which I was allergic and I had to leave the restaurant because I had a bad reaction) and make sure they have full menu as well as the staff being able to read the customers correctly and not come off as arrogant or rude.
