About Don Giovanni Manchester
Thank you for interest in booking with us at Don Giovanni.
We’re very sorry to say that our restaurant unfortunately suffered a fire on Wednesday morning. The main thing is that no-body was there at the time so therefore no-one was hurt. Sadly we are having to close Don Giovanni for a minimum of 4 weeks.
Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused you. Disappointing our customers is not something we like to do, and for this, the team and I am very sorry that we cannot make you a booking.
Where possible we are trying to accommodate our valued customers in our sister restaurant Cibo, based just a few minutes walk away on Liverpool Road.
Cibo, (pronounced chi-boh) brings you real Italian food from the heart. The chefs focus on simple cooking with the finest, freshest flavours inspired by passion and love for the cuisine. Enjoy various signature dishes in a distinctive and relaxed cool café environment, where modern meets tradition letting you to temporarily escape to the city of Naples.
We are also offering 50% off food* at Cibo too, and depending on availability we’d love for you to join us. All you need to do is call us on 0161 834 9741 or visit www.cibo.uk.com to speak with the team and make your reservation.
Our apologies again and best wishes,

Good quality food and attentive staff
Dear Sir/Madam I was very upset to arrive at your Manchester restaurant for my reservation at 6.50 pm on 9.8.2018 for my 7 pm booking to find your restaurant closed. On closer investigation I found out that your restaurant had been subject to a fire. I understand this is unforeseen circumstances and obviously at great detriment to your business. However I then discovered via the media that your restaurant were contacting customers with bookings to invite them to a sister restaurant (Cibo). I received zero communication about this and this would have been an alternative considering we had travelled into Manchester via public transport. This has been a considerable waste of my evening, especially as it is my daughters birthday and we were looking forward to a lovely meal at your restaurant to celebrate ( she was also upset too having taken time to get ready) having dined there several times previously. I expect a reply from your reservations team regarding how this can be resolved particularly as they sent me an email on weds afternoon to remind me about my booking! I anticipate your reply.

Restaurant was closed (due to a small fire) - we were not notified.
Only downer was the time between starter and main which was well over an hour. Service was, as always, fantastic and the food was great. You were very busy when we arrived but the wait put us off chancing a dessert and we love desserts!
Very nice food great service
Had a fab meal. The staff were very helpful and pleasant.
Waited too long to have the food served
Service was rediculouly slow, waited 15 mins to be asked for a drink and then another 15 mins until we got the drinks, food was okay nothing special, waited 20 mins to get the attention of a waiter for the bill and then it came incorrect and waited another 10 minutes to get that sorted, would not recommend to any of my friends and family which is such a shame! Was not worth the money even with the 50% off deal!
Thank you for our waitress coming after us when we left something behind on the table
Had an excellent meal, to celebrate a personal milestone. Bit of minor confusion over the bill when you tried to charge full price but did not spoil what was a really good evening.
The service and food is always of the highest standard.
Ordered olives. Had to remind waitress twice with no apology. Didn’t get offered water at any point during the meal. So had to ask for that. Seemed like they wanted us out fairly fast. It was the first week of 50% off so can only presume they weren’t prepared. Nice food but VERY overpriced for what it is. No rush to go back. Better places in manchester.
Delicious food & lovely atmosphere & wonderful surprise to find all food 50% discount during August (even weekends)
The food was great but the service was a little rushed. I think it was very cheeky to add a "optional" service charge to the bill, just another way of bumping the bill up I guess.
An enjoyable evening, however there was a strange drilling noise during our visit.
Lovely birthday meal, dining on a Saturday lunchtime as a party of six. The food was excellent and incredible value for money due to the 50% off food promotion. The servers were very attentive but equally patient, we didn't feel at all rushed. Really looking forward to going back!
Been here a few times now and it has become my favourite Italian restaurant. Quality food and great service!
Great food and atmosphere, will definitely be back again and have recommended to friends. Thank you
Great space. Good food.
50 percent off the bill then 5 pound supplement for steak plus also having to pay for vegetables a little disappointing and being charged for an extra coffee?, but the food was very nice just the peppercorn sauce, where were the peppercorns? Also a little more sauce would have been nice, all in all a pretty good experience
Love coming here, everything about the place , food and service is great. I will be back soon.
Music was not really to our taste a bit mish mash.
Great food, great atmosphere
Wonderful service, team are so very welcoming, really does make you feel you are visiting friends. The food is excellent , served piping hot and very tasty, What more can you ask for ! Thank you for a lovely evening we are so looking forward to our next visit.
The table that provided for 9 people wasn’t good. There was one round and one square table which weren’t fitting each other. Service was slow.
