Giovanni's Ristorante - Qualicum Beach
The BEST restaurant in Qualicum Beach! Consistently rated #1 on TripAdvisor
...and now for those wanting just a few drinks or a lighter meal, Giovanni's LOUNGE is open until 11:00pm every night!
Fine Italian Cuisine in a Friendly and Informal Atmosphere

Giovanni's Ristorante is celebrating six years as part of Qualicum Beach's restaurant scene, as of July 2014. Having firmly established itself as a favorite among local clientèle and visitors alike, Giovanni's offers an exciting dining experience. Qualicum Beach is known for being a favourite Canadian retirement community and a great place to vacation and has gained a reputation for 'closing down' early in the evening, lacking anywhere to enjoy a good meal past 8:00 pm. While there are many options in the area to grab a quick burger or a beef dip complete with fries, if you are one of those people who have a more discerning palate and seek something more, you probably would have had to get the map out and fill up the gas tank to plan a night out. No longer!

Giovanni's Ristorante is open for dinner 7 nights a week, and people are packing in to enjoy Chef Giovanni's special 'course meals' prepared for an entire table, or to select from a full and varied a' la carte menu. Starting January 2012, Giovanni's is pleased to offer weekday lunch service from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm.

Residents of, and visitors to Qualicum Beach no longer have to go out of town for an exquisite dining experience. In fact, Giovanni's, since opening in July 2008, has become a hot destination restaurant for residents and visitors from surrounding areas. An easy trip from close-by Parksville, Nanoose Bay and Nanaimo, guests are flocking to Giovanni's from as far afield as Victoria, Courtenay, Comox, Port Alberni and Campbell River, and even calling for reservations from the ferry over from Vancouver. Why? Because you can get off a later ferry at Nanaimo's Departure Bay and still make it to Giovanni's in Qualicum Beach for a great dinner before retiring to your vacation home or B&B. No more going to bed hungry when you arrive in town!

Why has Giovanni's become so popular, so quickly? Great food in a great atmosphere at a fair price.

Giovanni's hopes to become a part of your lives; a place where you know you will receive a truly wonderful dining experience while visiting with friends.
