In short, the calzones are amazing and easily large enough to be two meals (think 12-14" pizza folded in half). The sandwiches a traditional pizzas are good and the appetizer garlic bread is really good, too.

Best place to eat by far in Sylacauga and the service was above what you would expect! A friend told me about it as I was passing through the Sylacauga area and I'm glad I did!

I have been dining here since moving to the area. It's a great atmosphere for lunch or dinner. I love there pizzas and the eggplant parmesan! Great prices and very large portions. Over the time eating there, I have been able to get to know the family and they are truly great people that love serving great food.

My last visit to Giovanni's was great! The food is always amazing. There pizza's are some of the best I have ever had. Every time I have been, the owner's make an effort to come by the tables in the restaurant and talk to everyone. Recently, they had a pianist playing through their dinner service, which was nice.

By Sylacauga standards, this is a pretty nice place. It is clean and neat but not a destination restaurant by any standard. There is a good selection of Italian foods. We opted for the pizza when we learned they had sold out of their excellent Lasagna before the dinner hour started. Instead we had the best pizza we have ever... More

The place doesn't look like much from either the outside or the inside, but the food is some of the best Italian I've ever had. While the salad bar is a bit skimpy, the lasagna was excellent and in a huge portion. The complimentary garlic bread was to die for. Worth a drive. A real sleeper!

The four of us enjoyed lunch at Giovanni's Italian Restaurant. The Salad Bar was very good and ample. The main courses were very good in both quality and quantity. The restaurant's atmosphere is somewhat dark and dingy; however, that did not impact our meal.
