Casual, just what you'd expect

Good food at reasonable prices. Pizza, pasta and salads. I had penne vodka which came with a salad and garlic bread. The garlic bread was delicious. The serve alcohol and have a separate bar area which was closed for a private party when I was there. Plenty of parking as it's in a strip mall... read more

Terrific pizza, with a whole wheat crust, cook to perfection. Delicious. Vibrant pizza parlor atmosphere. Has a family dining area and a bar area.

The mammoth pizza is huge. The pizza was good. My only concern was that the store said they opened at 11:30 but no one answered their phone to take our order until noon.

1 large sausage pizza and two spaghetti dinners over $50?! It would have been ok if the pizza was not greasy, limp and thin crusted. The Alfredo sauce tasted prefabbed (can or jar). The meat sauce was flavorful and the garlic bread had redeeming qualities; however, the meal was overpriced and subpar in quality for the price.

Giovanni's is okay. You definitely get a lot of food, but it's kind of over priced. Plus, the restaurant is crowded and loud.

The food was surprisingly good despite my initial expectation. The service was very fast and everything came as ordered. My Greek salad was delicious with fresh ingredients and homemade dressing. We had the a medium Greek pesto pizza (forgot the name) and kids had a medium pepperoni. Our pizza was loaded with fresh ingredients and lots of artichoke. Yum! The... More

Pizza was tasty and price worth. Service was quick and very friendly. Casual place to go. Lots of choices in the menu. There either is a bar or a dining room.

We asked a few locals where they get their best pizzas from and without exception, each one said Giovanni's. So although we are not into pizza, unless we have spent an entire day skiing (which we did), we decided to treat ourselves to an entire large pizza. We called and ordered it to be delivered to our hotel. The pizza... More

Recommended (without hesitation) by the front desk manager at our hotel, we were very pleased with our pizza. Good crust, and a great variety of toppings to make your own "customized" pizza. Fresh (and not overly dressed) Cesar salad too. Wine selection was adequate and they offered a good Chianti. The server was GREAT! Friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.
