About Us

A true Welsh Italian from Grangetown, charismatic restaurant owner and entrepreneur Giovanni Malacrino was the pioneer of the UK’s first purpose built Café Quarter - bringing the heart of Cardiff to our award winning Mill Lane.

Giovanni's Restaurants are at the forefront of his successful business empire - with his flagship eatery, Giovanni’s Restaurant on The Hayes, recognised as the longest established Italian restaurant in Wales. Testament to the enviable success of Giovanni’s on The Hayes, in 2013 Giovanni launched its sister restaurant which is situated in the centre’s prosperous Park Place.
