We decided to drive into Albuquerque and try their pizza based on the reviews. What a disappointment! We got a Sicilian Supreme pizza. Lots of cheese, pepperoni and sausage, however, the crust (too thick) and tomato sauce were bland. We were not impressed, especially for the price we paid for this pizza. Good customer service but the pizza was average.... More

There is nothing special about this pizza joint! The Sicilian pizza is overpriced, and crust is an overrated adaptation of what a true Sicilian pizza should taste. The cheese and sauces are average. The Spinach, and Pesto were too salty. My overall assessment is below average!

Stopped here this afternoon, kind of by accident, although I had read a bag of mixed reviews about the place and had been intending to locate it and to try it out. Zagat highly recommends it. They really do have the best pizza I've had in abq. Authentic New York style pizza, the best I've had since in New York.... More

Thank you Giovanni's Pizza! I am a New Yorker who has been living outside NY since 1997. I bumped into your restaurant trying to find Kirtland AFB, and I was so happy that I did. Pizza by the slice that is thin enough to fold and eat pizza the way that you should. You did it! Real NY pizza in... More

While visiting family, we decided to have pizza.They usually go to one of the local chain pizza places. I picked Giovanni's based on tripadvisor reviews. Wow. We had 2 large sausage, beef, onion & mushroom thin crust. Everyone said it was an excellent pizza. Crust was fresh and not chewy. Not too much sauce, and it was fresh tasting. The... More

First off I have been going to Giovanni's for many years but it has become very inconsistent and truthfully not very good. On a recent visit I was told buy a worker that the calzone was supposed to be burned on the bottom and top with severe dough blistering. A moderate char is acceptable but burn is not. Well he...

I have had a difficult time over the years trying to find NY style pizza in NM. I saw Giovanni's listed as a top pizzeria in NM so I thought I would try it. It was great! I go hear now when I am in town to get my NY style pizza kick. The place is in a strip mall... More

This pizza is amazing. We make sure and stop and eat a pepperoni pizza with extra pepperoni & extra cheese every time we come to town. We are never disappointed with the quality. My husband (an avid pizza lover) says this is his favorite pizza!
