Until I discovered real italian food,
I was never really interested in anything


Manchester’s Oldest & Most Trusted Italian Restaurant
Award-winning restaurant Don Giovanni is the oldest independently-owned Italian in Manchester, established in 1984. We’ve proudly been serving fresh, high-quality authentic Italian meals to the people of Manchester for over thirty years.
We are located on Oxford Street adjacent to St Peter’s Square tram stop in the heart of Manchester city centre.




In the late 1800’s thousands of Italians made new homes amongst the mills and factories in the run down area of Manchester city centre. Don Giovanni was created by the families of those inhabitants over thirty years ago and became the pioneers of modern day Italian food: introducing generations of Mancunians to real Italian cuisine.
Fast forward three decades and we’re here still with a string of awards under our belt, plus a new selection of Michelin star dishes from celebrity Italian-French chef Jean Christophe Novelli available throughout the Christmas period.
