We went to Don Giovanni's this evening. We are not a couple to normally complain but felt that we had to. We had the chicken in cream and wine sauce and the lamb. The lamb in particular was fatty and the sauce was bland and tasted terrible. The staff did not ask once how the food was and when we... More

My girlfriend and I visited Don Giovanni's on a Friday evening. We were greeted warmly and ushered to our seats with menus. The restaurant was warm, clean and tidy. My only complaint about the atmosphere was that modern music was being played. I would have preferred authentic Italian music to add to atmoshpere but that might just be me. We... More

The service was poor, not very friendly staff. The food was plain and lacked flavour. The steak was chewy and didn't look very appetising. I wouldn't go back again

We went to this restaurant using a deal and were more than satisfied. Food was freshly prepared and of a good quality. Drinks were reasonably priced. Good choice of set meals and overall good value.

Nice quiet place where it's possible to talk, or as I did, enjoy a good book while waiting for an excellent meal. I had Bruschetta as a starter. The bread was crisp and light, and the tomatoes were surprisingly tasteful. The main course was Lasagna and it was just as Italian as it should be, and the house red wine... More

I'm normally very generous with my reviews but can't seem to stretch to that on this occasion. Have visited this restaurant once before and wasn't sure about it so decided to give it a second chance, now wish I hadn't. Ordered mushrooms for starters which were overlooked and dry with a lot of greasy oil poured over them. In fact... More
