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.

    Another great meal. Treated very well. Food was delivered quickly. The garlic bread is one of the best. Children made to feel special by staff and the portions for them were of a very good size. No complaints. We will be back.

    I think the restaurant has recently been done up and not sure if it’s been taken over but definitely not the Giovannis I remember from before. Food was nice, service was very slow although it was a quiet night and whilst there was no delay with the food it took along time for the orders to be taken and any requests dealt with. Shame as I have always loved Giovannis.

    Excellent customer-facing staff let down by a kitchen that delivered very disappointing main courses. Staff: > very welcoming reception > barman was knowledgeable and helpful with drinks served at the bar > front of house did not hurry us from the bar to the table > our waitress gave us time but prompted in good time to order to get a head of a large party > the wine waiter recommended an excellent alternative that was not on the wine list and discounted it considerably to the same price as our choice then took time to find the provenance. Food: > Starters were at best average: Very (too?) generous sized portions but IL FRESCO (Buffalo mozzarella) was served chilled as if straight from a cold fridge. BRUSCHETTA PANCETTA E FUNGHI and COSTINE DI MAIALE were fair. > Mains were consistently poor: MERLUZZO AL CARTOCCIO (baked cod with toasted ciabatta) was a lot of bland, wet cod with one small slice of ciabatta and nothing else. LA CODA DI ROSPO (Monkfish_ was tough and unappetising. The POLLO VALDOSTANA plain grilled was colourless and bland. >Deserts and coffee were good.

    As a regular customer we didn’t hesitate to book a table for Christmas Eve but this time were disappointed with our experience. The food wasn’t as good as we had experienced before and the service was rushed to the point we felt uncomfortable with pressure to eat up and leave. The bill was promptly presented before we had finished drinks and our overall stay was not much over an hour and a quarter. We felt very much an inconvenience which is such a shame as a regular customer of many years.
