We were tired of walking around looking for someplace to eat, so we called Giovanni's and found they delivered! Pizza was good, not great. The sauce was a little bland, but other than that, crust was great and abundant toppings!

Ali (Manager? & Owner?) hung up on me twice. Hung up on for third time by woman (unidentified). Never going there again!

Ate dinner here after a Pirates game. Pizza was very good with lots of toppings. Not a lot of tables but it seemed like they were delivering a fair amount.

Went for a quick dinner and was pleasantly surprised at the quantity and quality of what was served. I ordered the dinner combo and that included entre with garlic bread and a dinner salad. I had enough for another meal the next day. The only thing is they were a bit under staffed and worked the people too hard. The... More

My husband and I visited before the Garth Brooks concert. They weren't busy at all which was concerning but we were in a rush. It's not the cleanest place you've ever seen but the food was delicious!

Just didn't like the looks of it, and noticed the sign for Giovanni's & that they had pizza by the slice. I ordered 2 cheese slices and a bottle of lemonade, cost me $5. The... More

I travel to pittsburgh about 20 times a year and every time we pass this place we can't help but to stop. We get pizza by the slice. It usually only takes a minute or two. The bad part is the seating. Basically there isn't any. There's about 5 tables in there but it's always packed, probably because the pizza... More

We ate here because it is walking distance from the Cambria / Consol Center on Centre Ave. The pizza was very good and was served to our table in about 12-15 minutes. My wife ordered the spaghetti. She enjoyed it, but I thought the sauce was watery and weak. The inside of the place was rundown looking, and the employees... More
