Wonderful buzzing place

We went there for a "quick" lunch and had pizza and pasta. If you share a medium pizza with two people, that's plenty! Rosario does his best to keep up with the crowds during lunch! We also had the cannelloni which were simply delicious. A nice Italian place!

We have been on the pizza hunt to replace our favorite place hangout (fave place sold so owner could retire :( ) Giovanni's pizza was edible, but ho hum at best. We had the thin crust combination: tomato sauce was flavorless, pepperoni was salty, pizza toppings were skimpy; pizza menu was lackluster and unimaginative. Two of us easily consumed and... More

Nice dive pizza place. The pie is a little thicker than I like but very good. Table service and reasonable prices. They also have pasta and sandwiches.

Our search for a good pizza in Silicon Valley continues. This is not it. Giovanni's offers decent pizza at decent (for this area) prices. I am not a NY pizza fan and don't like burnt crust which Giovanni's often delivers. Other than that, toppings are typical and in decent quantities, cheese is sparse (boo!), and the crust is fine when... More

Wow! If it is Italian this restaurant serves it. Not a fancy atmosphere. Just really good food. Loved the Gnochi!

Met colleagues here for lunch. The pizza was decent, but not outstanding - I've had much better elsewhere, even in the Bay Area. Prices are good, particularly considering how expensive the area is. The atmosphere is typical pizza parlor: bare floors, some art on the walls, but nothing that makes it stand out. I'd be willing to come back, but... More

For family style pizza in Silicon Valley, you simply cannot beat Giovanni's. The location is convenient and the restaurant itself is spacious and quite comfortable (NOTE: given notice, they can easily accommodate large parties). The owners are wonderful people, staff is helpful and accommodating, and, most important, the pizza is *very* good and a good value, too. The "Weight Watchers"... More

Giovanni's is terrific. Delicious thin crust pizza with just the right amount of tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. The staff is friendly and welcoming. The large side room is great for birthday parties and team get togethers.
