Supporting Giovanni

Matthew Steeples criticises the ‘Evening Standard’s’ Benedict Moore-Bridger for his unjustified attack on the Knightsbridge restaurant Giovanni

 

Benedict Moore-Bridger is an Evening Standard journalist who has been criticised for his “lazy work” and described as “[not] the most popular chap at the office.” Of his writing style, one Twitter user remarked: “[He makes me] sigh” whilst another commented that an article he wrote about a hit-and-run was “shameful.” Here, it seems, is a writer capable of causing unnecessary annoyance and here yesterday was a journalist who sought out a cheap headline at the expense of a decent, hardworking Knightsbridge restaurateur.

 

In picking up and exaggerating on information no doubt fed to him by a disgruntled busybody resident of Yeoman’s Row – where Adriano Basha runs the delightful Italian eatery Giovanni – Moore-Bridger decided to highlight irrelevant details about the businessman and his country of origin. His article contained a veiled hint of anti-immigrant sentiment and suggested local residents “regular[ly]” complain about the establishment. In response, the paper further stoked this matter in allowing the most inappropriate and bigoted reader comments to be published underneath the online version of the piece.

 

The Evening Standard and Mr Moore-Bridger should be ashamed of themselves. Local residents love Giovanni; it is a fine restaurant and one most ably run. We urge all our readers to support Adriano and Giovanni.

    • Ask you son or doughter if they are willing to take my position as I’m Italian …
      The answer will be : dad but I want to be a doctor/lawyer/princess ecc…
      How comes then , in the distillery where I work in London , 8 out 9 people are Italian and 1 is not even from London (Sunderland)
      Give me a good reason for what you wrote ! You stupid bigot piece of shit !!

      • In Clerkenwell, in the old days, there used to be a vibrant Italian community with church, newspaper etc. It had been in existence for at least 150 years.
        Shame it no longer exists

  1. Well done to you for saying this. Giovanni serves superb pasta and I find the staff welcoming. The moaning neighbour should be put in the stocks.

  2. Define “native”, Rodders. Do you mean eg only Aboriginal Australians for Australian jobs, or is there a specific number of generations before outsiders qualify?

  3. I wanted to join the Ku Klux Klan so I went on their website, looked at all the requirements and to my dismay they only allow U.S citizens to join.
    Are these guys racists or something?

  4. My husband and I totally support Adriano Basha in his running of Giovanni, the food and the welcoming atmosphere there and, we are locals!

  5. I’m a regular at Giovanni and love love love this venue! Adriano works so hard and his team are so lovely and professional… I hear the nasty neighbour who was the ONLY one who complained has moved out!!! Hurrah! He actually told my friend who lies in the road to stop her dog peeing outside on the pavement! WELL DONE Adriano and his team.. keep the good work going xx
