Review of Giovannis Italian restaurant on Nantwich Road

23-25 Nantwich Rd, Crewe, Cheshire CW2 6AF
01270 500276
Giovannis is an Italian restaurant on Nantwich Road in Crewe. Local Listings went there to eat about a month ago - here is our review!

The first thing you notice when you enter Giovannis is the staff. Friendly, welcoming and accommodating to their customer's needs. Whilst we were there, we saw many examples of this, including merging tables in an already busy restaurant to accommodate a large group of people and, on another table, talking to the customers about a dish and then offering to change the sauce to meet their requirements.

The food is as good as the service and the price is very reasonable considering that all pizzas, pastas, soups, sauces and more are created from scratch in the restaurant.
