Whether you visit Giovanni’s at Eikendal or Waterstone (or at JC or Laborie!) you are in for a treat. After dining at Giovannis for over 13 years, I am yet to be disappointed in their food or service. Eikendal is great for a family meal...during Covid - outside, proper spacing between tables and great practicing of Covid preventative measures. While Waterstone is inside, it has a great atmosphere and is very well run. The food and service is however why we keep on going back - the seafood risotto, lamb shank, melanzane, Peter’s special steak, remains my favorites. The pizza is out of this world. Favorite desert: meringue with avo (try it!). The portions are generous. The servers are amazing - nothing can be faulted! If you dont feel like sitting down, do a takeaway - the food keeps well! You will not be disappointed.More

I have never been disappointed with any dish here. The service is great and the food is tastefully prepared. They have a large menu with big portions. They are known for their pastas and pizzas which is top quality. Definitely our favorite restaurant!

We have known Giovanni‘s for some years now, and we were never disappointed. Even now at lockdown level 3, where only take away is permitted, the quality of the food is outstanding. We had the Ossobuco and the Veal Milanese, which was still hot when...arriving at home. Please support our local businesses, go and get some Take away at Giovanni‘s!More

I know you are able to bring your own wine with a corkage fee, I think its R55 (not sure) but they also have really good wine on their menu at affordable prices.

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
