Simply, the best, most authentic slice of Italy / Europe one will find in the Cape. Nothing comes remotely close.
Giovanni / Nicolas are utterly focused, passionate, professional and totally in control of an eatery / coffee-shop / people-collector (!) that, frankly, has no equal, at all, in Cape Town. Or, anywhere in S A.
Food / coffee / merchandise quality is top-level and meticulously maintained. It would be unthinkable to visit Cape Town without spending an appreciable amount of time at Giovanni's. You have been warned: miss out on Giovanni's to your absolute detriment! :-)
The best capuccino I ever had ! You should visit Giovanni's if you are in Cape Town, don't miss it !
