And he, pardon the pun, delivered. we walked in, got great service, picked up a six pack next door, and 12 minutes later we were out the door. great... More

I was pleasantly surprised with the "Pete's" pizza (sundried tomato sauce, spinach, tomatoes, garlic) meal. A small was a good serving size for one person. It was very delicious. It's fun to sit in the bar and watch sports on the multiple TVs. The server was very friendly. Highly recommend!

The décor may not be the flashest but who cares when the food is so good. We sat in the bar area and the waitress was fantastic, as was the value of the overall meal and drinks. Try the Mammoth Brewing Company IPA!

I've eaten here many times previously and it has always been good. For some reason, Don't know why, it has literally been years since I've been. On This last trip to Mammoth, we decided to go back. It's as nothing has changed! The food is great and service outstanding. The pizza was as good as you will get anywhere, and... More

Every time we travel to Mammoth we look forward to a dinner at Giovanni's. The pizza is sooo good! We order ground beef with tomatoes and pepperoni pizzas. The pizzas aren't greasy at all!! The salads are always good and fresh too. I tried the hot wings once......not impressed. Stick with the pizza and we are happy campers!

Good pizza, too much as usual. Good tables in the sports bar bit, the restaurant bit was almost empty.

We very much like this pizza, it's that simple. Of course, they have an Italian and American menu, salad bar, "sports bar" area and such, but we are such big fans of the pizza that we try to include it in every one of our visits to Mammoth Lakes.

We ate there twice during our stay in Mammoth Lakes because we really liked the salad bar with its fresh variety of vegetables. The first time we ate there, we had pasta, which was good as well. The second time, we chose a seat in the bar area in order to watch the football game. We ordered the endless salad... More

We started with the mini stromboli and it was a meal in itself! I ordered the chicken parmesean, it was massive! Cooked perfectly! It was served with fresh minestrone soup. Definitely not canned! My Honey had tge spaghetti & a salad. Delish! Try it, you'll like it!
