Delicious Pizza for All At A Good Price

Giovanni's has been operating in Mammaoth Lakes, Ca for seemingly forever. It sets the standard for pizza in Mammoth. With a variety of crusts, sauces and toppings, there is something for everyone. We always enjoy our pizzas there and are very happy with the service. In addition to pizzas, the... read more

We have only ever had lunch at this place but we love it. The special lunch menu is $8.95 and includes minestrone soup or salad and a 9" pizza. There are other options but we have never got round to them. The salad is huge and fresh and there are loads of dressings to choose from. The pizza is crispy... More

Some of our favorite restaurants are closed on Mondays in Mammoth, so we went in search of a new restaurant to try on Monday evening. We found Giovanni's. We all ordered something different in the Italian dinners. Loved the crisp green salads and our friend loved the Minestrone soup that came with our meal! She thought it was the best... More

Maybe it's the pizza and our party had pasta but I am baffled by the ranking of this very ordinary neighborhood Italian restaurant. Service was decent, as were menu selections but there was nothing at all special about the food. In fact, my wheat pasta dish tasted like cardboard and the rest of my party had food that was fine,...

It's a local pizza institution, along with Perry's Pizza. Giovanni's is a family pizza restaurant and is just what it is...a basic, no frills restaurant. If you prefer homemade sauces, dressings and pasta made by an Italian chef, this is not the place for you!

We have eaten here twice with kids. The pizza is very good and reasonably priced. The personal size pizza is perfect for one child. Also the pasta is great and the garlic bread is made fresh in house. Wine is priced right (we bought a bottle for $24) and our waiter was awesome. Booths in the bar are a bit... More

After a day of skiing or hiking this pizza hits the spot, every time. Not 40% of time Not 65% of time and not even 70% of the time. EVERY TIME this pizza hits the spot. 100%

Worst food ever, we had 4 different types of meals all were awful. Pasta soft, chicken overdone, pizza soft and the worst eggplant ever. No redeeming factors and not cheap!
