My husband is from Milwaukee, Wi and he liked this restaurant, he said this is exactly the kind of Italian food he would get in his neighborhood and enjoyed his meal. I am from California and did not like the food at all. The sauce to me was very bland, so put that on top of flavorless noodles and then... More

Pros; location close to base. Only decent sit down restaurant in downtown Fairborn with room for several people. Cons; bland pizza, bland salad, cold bread with cold butter; so you can't spread it. Bland daily specials. High prices for bland food. I hate when coworkers want to get lunch at Giovanni's. I have to make an excuse to not go,... More

Big disappointment when I tried their pizza margarita. Everything was fake from the crust to basil. The mozzarella was dry and the size was ridiculously microscopic. After I ate it I gave up to order anything else. I guess everyone nowadays is claiming to offer authentic Italian cuisine...

We had the worst experience. Hopefully the staff was just undermanned, but we received the WORST service. We asked for crayon 3 times before getting up and getting them yourself. We asked for napkin 3 times, before asking another server. Our server forgot my wine, so I gentle reminded her. (not initially an issue) However, when she did deliver the... More

As high school students, this was our hangout. The pizza is still awesome and prices are good for the value. The pizza is worth the trip to Main Street, Fairborn, Oh.

I have been going to Giovanni's for 25 years and have never been disappointed. Pizza is awesome and everything else is good too. Another review talked about the stuffed onions with cheese sauce are heaven.

We stumbled upon Giovanni's yesterday and later found that it's actually a popular dining spot in Fairborn. We came very hungry so we ordered too much, but that just meant delicious leftovers for later. The staff was wonderful. The server was very friendly and knew the menu. He even told us how long we should expect to wait for our... More

I had Bruschetta and a plate of meatballs with Marinara sauce. My wife had the 9" Pepperoni Pizza. Both our dishes were great. The crust on the pizza was very good and the meatballs were great also. The service we got wasnt that great but was acceptable. a lot of locals were there which is always a good sign.

I love their lasagna & I try to go there whenever I'm in town. It's about the only decent restaurant in Fairborn.

By far the best pizza in the area. It is consistently good. We order pizza from there every time we in town. Even when friends come to visit, first thing they do is ask for Giovanni's
