Food great but service outstanding. Owner comes out to each table and makes you feel welcome. Personally thanks you for choosing his restaurant. Wonderful atmosphere

Went for Sunday Buffett again. Great food and great service. The guy that owns it is very appreciative of your business and comes by to offer food and check on you.

Had a most pleasant meal here - good, home style Italian food and great service. The portions are very generous, so bring your appetite! It's not a fancy restaurant- more like a big Italian family eating in the kitchen - not the dining room. And that's the sense we got from this place - the guests were treated like family!

The night I came in it wasn't busy. The people were very nice and helpful. The food was awesome! It was more than I could finish. I really liked garlic bread. I highly recommend eating here.

Made reservations and could not get a table. Got passed over two times. The food here is decent, but not worth being passed over for "friends" it is fortunate they are in a small town, otherwise they would not be in business long.

I work the front desk at the Quality, just up the road. I recommend all my guest to eat Giovanni's. The atmosphere is wonderful and the workers are very friendly! You will get what you pay for, with hefty servings. I assure you will leave with a smile, full stomach, and a to go box :)

I ate here on a Saturday night in late March when I was staying overnight in Sylacauga on a trip from the Gulf coast to Illinois. I had eaten a very late lunch and did not want much. The young lady who waited on me patiently discussed a few options and I settled on a small pizza. It has been... More

Drive pass here all the time and its always packed. This time we decided to stop. Wonderful food and great service. Love that the owners are out and about while you are dining. We ordered pizza and three pasta dishes. Pasta dishes come with salad bar which is fresh or a wonderful Caesar salad. Portions were more than ample. Fresh... More

The pizza here is always great but the rest of their selections are just average. The staff is not well trained which is probably why you don't get great service or hot food.
