Great Italian Food South of the Mason Dixon Line

Let's face it folks - you can't get a really "really" great slice unless you are in the NY city metropolitan area, but Giovanni's comes pretty close. As a kid I remember eating a slice and having the oils off the pie drip onto my white paper plate. For a good slice, this is the place to go when... read more

Family and I picked this place to try as we are from out of town. It's located in a shopping plaza next to Publix. When you first walk in the place seems dark and a bit hole in the wall like. I wasn't too concerned at first as we've had great food at hole in the wall places. Went to... More

I have had several lunches for my customers catered by Giovanni's. It is amazing and I'm always asked "where is the food from"? If you have not had the pasta Silva then you have not lived. The white Pizza is always a favorite. Amazing family owned business and they never fail me. The antipasto salad......oh my. It's all there. Thanks... More

My wife and I have eaten here quite a few times, and we have never been disappointed. The have a steak and cheese sub that's the bomb, totally delicious and only $7.95. You had better have a big appetite to finish this on your own, we usually split it. Another awesome entree is the antipasto with the house dressing, very... More

My friends and I had lunch at Giovanni's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria. The restaurant is conveniently located in a Publix mall that is near University of Central Florida. The restaurant's décor was tired, old and dusty. We were the only customers in the restaurant at around 3 p.m. on a weekday afternoon. We did not enjoy our lunch. We ordered... More

Not sure how this place could be improved. From the owner's friendliness to our server's perfect combination of attitude and care, this will go down as one of the best all around places we've experienced. Thanks to our server, Lynda, for the excellent dinner! Our entrees included chicken Francesca- 9 out of 10. Shrimp Francesca. 10 ( not a menu... More

We had the Pasta Carbonara. It was delicious. Not for the calorie conscious, loaded with butter. The restaurant is on the dark side, insufficient lighting. Garlic bread sticks should have come with salad but instead came later with the entree. A little too late. Staff is friendly but service is slow.

Service has always been excellent, we have been going there for dinner for the last 15 yrs and have never had a complaint. Mike and his crew do an excellent job.
