I love the deluxe pizza at Giovannis. They don't deliver so you have to order ahead and pick up or dine in. They are not open on Sundays, which is commendable. Whenever, we have company and want a really incredible pizza, we pick up the deluxe from Giovannis. Try it, you'll like it.

Small waiting area, maybe 5' x 5'. Owner Mr. Crump has good intentions, but sometimes is more in the way of customers and servers while trying to function as host. He has tendency to dictate to servers various customer needs instead of taking responsibility himself, ie. a straw, drink refill, spoon etc. These are things he could accomplish instead of... More

We stopped at this location and were seated, but after 15 min. The two waitresses never waited on us. Both walked by us three times made eye contact, never spoke and then went to seat other guests. We got up, hunted down a waitress, explained we were leaving and got no response from her. We will not eat here ever... More

Great salad bar and good soup beans. Pizza is okay but pasta, garlic bread, and cheese sticks are very good. Good desert as well

Stopped in for the lunch buffet. Food was average. Nothing spectacular. Would compare it to most other Italian buffets you would get anywhere else.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Winchester. I like the pizza but I love the salad bar and soup. On Wednesday and Saturday you can get soup beans that are to live for. The chili is awesome as well. I'm usually not a fan of buffets, however, this is one I make an exception for. The... More

Giovanni's in Winchester, KY offers a decent Italian Buffet. This is a family owned restaurant, a welcome site! Good tastes, decent selection on the buffet.

We love going here, especially with our daughter. The waitresses show so much attention to her, and she loves the food. The buffet is a great price, and the salad bar is always fresh and well-stocked. Everything about this place is great! Sometimes you have to wait a bit to get seated, but it's understandable since everyone wants to eat... More
