After living in Florida for 24 years I moved to Idaho, and Giovanni's is one restaurant I truly miss. It is honestly my dream type of Italian restaurant. It's has great pizza. Perfect for taking home for a night of TV or movies on the couch, or great to sit in the restaurant and share with friends to get away... More

Been going to Giovanni`s for almost 20 years, & it`s always quality food & delicious.. Prices are reasonable, too. My particular favorites are the pasta carbonara & spaghetti with meat sauce, but everything is good!

This little place is located in a strip mall very close to the University of Central Florida. They have a small bar and an intimate dining room with tables that can be arranged to accommodate parties up to about 12 or so. Booths are sized for four and 6. This is a real "not a chain" little place with meals... More

I've eaten at Giovanni's many times over the years. The food is always Excellent - cooked just right, very flavorful, abundant portions, served at the right temperature, etc. etc.- and prepared at a very reasonable cost! What the restaurant may be lacking in ambiance is made up for by the excellent food. The service is almost always "spot on". Most... More

Our waitress was not on... More

This family owned restaurant has great food and great prices. Everything from the calzone to the baked ziti scilian is wonderful. Try the stuffed pizza! It is worth the wait, as it takes about 25 minutes to bake. It is a nice place to take your family for dinner, even though the rest of the plaza is starting to cater... More

Very good food and service. Superb 'house' dressing for the salads. This is a family owned restaurant which has multiple stores. Good pricing and don't miss the special chicken dishes on the daily special menu. They are superb!

I've lived in Oviedo the past fourteen years, and have either eaten in, taken out, or had delivered Giovannis' food well over a hundred times. This is a family run operation that has a few other local locations, and they take their cooking seriously. Not every dish is what I would call excellent, however, some are exceptional. I love their... More

We tried Giovanni's tonight. I liked the atmosphere and I will give it another shot, because it might have just been an off-night. The service was good, but the food was average at best. The soups were pretty salty. The bruschetta - more of a pizza with mozzarella, basil, and tomato chunks - was ok. The philly cheese steak sandwich... More

Pros: Reasonable Prices, Good Food Cons: No Good Seating For Large Groups This location is near our office, so we are regular customers both for lunch as well as take-out dinners. From a lunch perspective, they have a nice, reasonably priced menu, and the staff does a good job of tending to everyone. While they offer a full menu at... More
