Giovanni's Rustic Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria is an iconic family-operated restaurant in Rotorua and has been part of the Lynmore landscape since 2017. Giovanni’s is one of a small handful of restaurants in New Zealand which doesn't promote fizzy drinks. We offer a legendary dining experience with cuisine being broadly Italian in style.
Our menu provides beautiful handmade fresh pasta dishes and wood-fired pizzas, and is well regarded for its New Zealand-style signature dishes including excellent steaks, innovative chicken, plus a range of vegetarian meals. We also offer a dedicated vegan menu plus gluten-free options. Giovanni's is licensed with an extensive Italian and New Zealand selection of wines, beers and other beverages.
We operate seven days per week and are happy to cater for take-away orders. Our menus are available from 352 Te Ngae Road or can be viewed on our website. Our restaurant has a great ambience and is a perfect venue for medium-size groups. Bookings are essential on all nights.
