They deliver, that said. My husband had lasagna, I had Lemon Caper Salmon, both were excellent!!! Delivery was right on time. Food amazing, remembered to bring plastic silverware, napkins and plates!! Big plus as a lot of places forget that when you are in a hotel.

Compared to other Mammoth Lakes restaurants, Giovanni's really offers value for money. Complemenatary garlic bread (soooooo great!!!) and ceasar's salad or soup with pastas and entrees. Try the pasta or chicken pommodore: great sauce from fresh tomatoes and garlic. Rather old-fashioned interior but great service!

The service is great even with several cross country running teams filling the restaurant. The Fettuchini Alfredo was good- not too saucy but also not the best I've had. Pizza was good. Portions are large especially after hard day of mountain biking. The bread is amazing!

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. Friendly service, would go there... 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.
