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

Ive grown up eating giovanni's my entire life having gone to school right across the street since PreK. They make my all time ever favorite pizza! Their manicotti is also amazing! I still have to eat here at least once a week no matter what. A family favorite forever and always! Everyone who works there is also amazing. They never... 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!

This was recommended in USA Today as best pizza. That was all we needed. Several reviews comment on the locale. While not in the best part of town, it is not in a bad part either. We decided to take out and bring back to our hotel but would go have been fine sitting in the restaurant. Located In a... More

This pizza is as close as you can get to New York style pizza. Best pizza in Albuquerque, hands down!

In ABQ on business and had a taste for Pizza. I've had both Dion's and Scarpa's here in Albuquerque and while both are good, neither is the equal of true northeast Pizza. Found this place on Trip Advisor, the pizza sounded good but the neighborhood comments gave me pause. I drove over and have no idea what they are talking... More

I resent the reviews that diss the neighborhood. It is not upscale but it IS a working class neighborhood. Normal folks live here. It is safe. I've been there at night with my grandkids and they like it a lot. The restaurant serves wonderful pizzas, calzones, spaghetti, eggplant parmigiana, salads, etc. Unique -- and outstanding -- items, for me, include... More
