To our amazement, we finally tried the pizza and were so disappointed. The server screwed up our order to begin with and they didn't even offer a little discount after we agreed to just eat it. Then, the crust was soggy and the sauce had no added flavor. We love the sandwiches and past dishes and this was a huge... More

Okay, so lunch does not usually make me think of such a high rating, but the staff at this place, which was recommended to me by a client, was amazing and the sandwich was exemplary for lunch and for such a reasonable price point. My customer eats at this place regularly and I will certainly be eating here when I... More

What is not to like about Giovanni's? Let me start by saying these folks are very community-minded and supportive of the local schools and organizations. The food is good, the service pleasant and prompt. It always has a good crowd so you know it is a local favorite. Worth a trip if you have not been. Pizzas are good and... More

On the spur of the moment, five of us went to Giovannis for dinner. The food was above average and the service was good. I had the Shrimp in an oil and garlic sauce and it was very good. I couldn't finish it all. With a glass of Pinot Grigio to wash it all down, it was a meal that... More

I've been dining and carry outing from Giovanni's for 20 years, and it's still the best around. John, the owner has been in business for 27 years, and he still works harder than any business man I've known. That's why this place is so successful. When it comes to steak and cheese subs, pizza and Greek salads, I know what... More

Hands down the best pizza around! This is our favorite spot for pizza and the locals live it. Good atmosphere and great taste. The crust has good flavor, the sauce isn't too sweet and has a little acidity and the cheese....yum!

No need to order extra cheese on these pizzas. They are very liberal with good high-quality cheese, they have the closest to New York crust I can find close by. Always friendly. Good beer on tap. Calamari is tasty too!

It was awful. When I said something, I was told that was how it was made and that... More

I have never had anything to eat from Giovanni's that wasn't excellent! Great service, great food! We can make it there and back during a lunch hour or even get to go orders for lunch meetings. The white pizza is probably the best white pizza I've had south of NYC!
