I've been here many times. The food, drinks and staff are amazing. The specials menu is something special and if you have any dietary issues the staff are very willing to help. Every time I go I struggle to pick a dish as every one sounds (and is) so tasty!
The views from the balcony are great of the lake and there's more than adequate parking. You'll definitely need to get a taxi back as the wine menu is something to enjoy.
While it may seem expensive to some of us it is totally worth it and is perfect for a romantic meal or special occasion, or any occasion at that! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Excellent traditional Italian Restaurant with very nice outdoor water features and reception area for pre-drinks. Nice corners to hide away. Fantastic food and drink menus. This in not a pizza restaurant or suitable for very young children. Although they have a small selection of pizzas. Superb fresh sea food selection. Ideal for that special occasion. Budget at least £120 for two. (G&T, wine, starters, main, dessert, coffee. We will be going again!
Visited San Giovanni for a Sunday afternoon meal. There was quite a number of us (15), so I imagine that would have been tricky to cater for.
Food was OK - some of the party enjoyed their meal much more than others.
Service was an issue. The staff seemed grumpy and not well trained (for example, passing food from opposite side of the table, not knowing who was having what dish, and expecting the customers to ask each other, leaning across people when tidying table and not at all smiley (with one notable exeption who was excellent with the baby in our party).
Finally, when we asked if we could have desert on the patio (it was a lovely sunny day), we were refused....no idea why. Just seems to be a silly policy and seemed to sum up the approach of the staff.
So, was OK...but not fantastic.
