Had a very good lunch here with friends, food and service were very good. The menu had an extensive selection and would love to sample more. This restaurant is so much better than you might expect to find in a shopping mall.

Hi Ronan! Giovannis serves a gluten free pizza base and a "pasta of the day", either spaghetti, penne or linguine with your choice of sauce. We hope to host you! Warm regards, Peter
