I wasn't really impressed with Don Giovanni's which is a shame as there are a lot of good reviews here and I feel I missed out. I ordered whitebait as a starter and it was ok, just a little overfried and dry. The biggest disappointment...More

Very nice Italian restaurant. We didn't expect to have that tasty pasta in Folkestone. It is as if we are back to Italy. Do try this restaurant if you miss authentic Italian pasta.

We found this place on trip advisor whilst passing through from the Eurotunnel. We saw the outside on arrival and were a bit concerned but we needn't have been! Excellent food, really good quality, reasonable prices. Not the quickest service but very welcoming and friendly.

Walked I to the restaurant and asked the male waiter " Is cannelloni on the menu?". He gave me and odd look. I asked him "Are you Italian?" He replied yes. I asked him do you know what Cannelloni is? Yet another confused look. "Comment...More
