A regular haunt of ours because it is ideal for families. Six of us with our two grandsons and there is something for everyone on the menu. Service is good & drinks are all reasonably priced.Have rated it a 4* because the food is only 3* but 5* for exceptional value-for-money. The restaurant itself does lack for atmosphere however.
NOTE : All their pizzas are thin crust only (which suits us, but not everybody).

Was recommended to us by another couple who were staying at the same resort. Warm welcome, typical Italian styling. Pizza was really good, but pasta was bland. House wine was good and inexpensive.

Apart from the absolutely amazing friendly staff . Omg the food is 200% THE BEST ! So much so we've been back 3 times already. Ileana is the best hostess with the biggest smile . All the staff are fantastic though , even the chef comes to your table . The sauces are so fresh and vibrant . The pasta cooked to perfection. Pizza has the thinnest crisp base with toppings to suit all . Apparently this restaurant is under new management. Well keep this up and you will need to extend your premises . Absolutely fantastic all round . Can't wait to come back . Bravo

Thought we would try. It was years since last visit. We enjoyed lasagne and pizza. Lasagne best tasted for a long time not too much tomato or cheese perfect for me. Lots tasty meat. Pizza calzone packed with ham cheese lovely pizza base. Tiramisu and warm apple tart ended meal nicely. Very good value. Environment bit basic but clean. Recommend especially if looking for a lower cost place to eat with great food.

Called in twice while we were staying in the area. First time during the day and second for an evening meal.

The staff are really friendly and seem to really care about the service. They even brought us a fan when one of our party was feeling the heat.

The menu is good and plenty to choose from on there.

Its a shame they don't have a larger outside area as it gets quite warm inside despite the aircon.

Dear Mark J,
Thank you for giving us a try! We know that you have options and we are tremendously happy you picked us. We are delighted to read how our staff delivered above and beyond your expectations. Don Giovanni is under our management for only a few months and we have plans to expand the external area during winter for the next year.
We hope to see you again very soon!
