Being a food lover with my wife we found Giovanni's to be the best spot in Cape Town where by we could enjoy genuine and tasty Mediterranean food/deli ,service, take away, and sit down. Best coffee and fresh juices. Nice atmosphere and view .

For excellent coffee and wonderful food bar and take aways Giovannis is a legendary institution in Cape Town. The regulars hog the outside barstools for their coffee and morning chats. Elegant ladies come in for a lunch they put together at the deli counter and ì even met one gentleman who eats there every day as he says the food is better than his cooking. The seating is limited as it is mainly a deli but it is a treat to sit and watch the who's who of the Atlantic Seaboard do their shopping for and sometimes even bringing their own dishes to fill. The variety is huge but my favourite must be he veal schnitzel.

Just go.

This app requires a 100 characters... Grrr... Just go. Just go.

Oh, and browse the deli. It's got stuff you would never expect!

The manager of the guest hose that we stayed strongly recommended Giovanni's so we decided to give it a try. If you love authentic Italian meals, if you love great food, or even if you love to do window shopping for food, this is the place for you!
You can buy some food to nibble on the go, or you can buy home to entertain your guests (or yourselves). We were too lazy so we decided to choose something simple and had the staff to prepare for us. Love them!

Giovannis is an institution known by all who frequent Green Point.

Be sure to visit for a coffee, sandwich and croissant when you are in Green Point next.

Tip - Grab a sandwich on your way to the beach and you are all set for the day - great food, awesome people
