Fodor's Review

With floor-to-ceiling shelves stacked with everything delicious from French Champagne to truffle oil, Giovanni's is a great place to stock up for a gourmet picnic or enjoy a bite to eat at the counter. Fridges have fresh pasta dishes and greens, but the deli section and espresso bar are where most customers congregate. At possibly the oldest deli in the area, locals jostle for a seat with models and film-industry folk who come for the coffee and the vibe. Though a little chaotic at peak times—and to be honest, the raised counter seating is not especially comfortable—this place shouldn't be missed. There might be Italian meatballs with spaghetti or Thai plum chicken on offer. There's always a wide selection of hams and cold cuts as well as fantastic cheeses. Get anything from pumpkin-seed rolls to fresh-cut flowers and the daily newspaper. And it's just a block away from the soccer stadium and Green Point park.
