Went there last night in a group of 6 gorgeous caprese salad followed by amazing seafood risotto. Good atmosphere.Friendly staff. Everybody enjoyed their meals/wine
Only small issue was taking the order,paying the bill,ordering food was all a little slow but generally nice service and highly recommend as a long standing malahide restaurant.

Thank Princess A

Lovely busy restaurant with friendly staff. Quite tight for space but that reflects it local popularity.
It's the first Italian restaurant I have been in that makes its own pizzas but serves garlic bread as 2 slices of ordinary sliced bread! That was a disappointing start. The Caesar salad was good though.
We then had tagliatelle frutti de mare and a beef and spinach cannelloni.
The portion of tagliatelle was large. Personally not to my taste too much smoked fish which overpowered the whole dish.
The cannelloni was tasty but a tad dry inside the pasta.
I chose a bottle of Albariño to wash it down which wasn't the best, a bit tart.
All in all nothing bad, just not as good as I expected. Probably have the pizza next time, they looked great!

Went out for a walk with the family. Had chosen another restaurant but when we got there it was closed (for sale).
Giovannis was next on our list for a cheerful family dinner. I literally have not been in 20 years.
Food was lovely, staff really . I'll definitely try it again

Went for dinner with some friends and we were all very pleased with our meals. The starters of brie are very generous and tasty.

Main course chicken marsala is gorgeous and the calzone pizza was really tasty. The pasta dishes ordered were all a big hit. Portions are generous and we struggled to fit in dessert but did manage to share one between two - it would be rude not to!

Waitresses are lovely and friendly with a sense of humour which always goes a long way. A firm favourite that we always return to.

We came here on spec one Saturday evening for a quick bite. It was anything but quick! We waited about 20mins for our order to be taken then once it was about another 20 before we got any food! We were in the restaurant for over an hour before our mains were served.
We were thinking of leaving before we ordered as it took so long as an after thought we should have.
The food was only ok definitely not worth the wait!
