About Don Giovanni


Italian Flag


Our long standing Italian restaurant in Manchester is a multi-award winning, independently owned Italian restaurant in Manchester, established in 1984.

In the late 1800s thousands of Italians made new homes amongst the mills and factories of Ancoats, at the time a run down area known as Little Italy.

Don Giovanni was created by the families of the inhabitants from Manchester’s Little Italy over thirty eight years ago and became pioneers of modern day authentic Italian food – introducing generations of Mancunians to real Italian cuisine.

In true Italian style our menus are designed to showcase freshness, quality first and authentic Italian cuisine. All of our food is cooked fresh to order in our open plan kitchen.

As you take a stroll down Oxford Street you will spot our chefs hard at work making the ingredients used to create our authentic Italian dishes such as pasta, pizza and our exceptional desserts. You can watch the magic happen right in front of you in our recently installed marble window theatre.

Myself and my friend had a meal here last night for my birthday celebrations, and could not fault it at all. The staff were amazing, they were very attentive and polite, and the food could not have been better. We ordered a variety of dishes and they were the best versions of each I’ve ever tried. Would recommend highly and will return.

What an amazing night we had. The food is so good here and the staff treat you so friendly, has a real family vibe going on. We loved it! The creme brulee was to die for…highly recommend it!

Great service and great food. My favourite Italian restaurant in Manchester. We had Dan as our waiter, he was so kind and recommended dishes according to our taste. Always come back here!

Great location, nice atmosphere and attentive service. Authentic Italian food.
