Enjoyed a lunch here today. The waiter was attentive. I had baby kingklip and rice. My husband calamari and our friend, smoked salmon salad. We all enjoyed our meal. The music did get a bit too loud after awhile.

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
