We have been traveling through the US and Canada for the past three weeks and have dined out every night. Our experiences have been first class until we ate at Giovanni Pastrami. Fettuccine was reheated and very poor quality, chicken overlooked and dry. New York sandwich was also very disappointing, cold and very average. If the Cheescake Factory is a... More

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat with an impatient 5 year old, and just happened to pop in here. All our expectations were certainly exceeded. The waitress was very friendly and lovely. The food was great. Sometimes burgers are just underwhelming, but in here everything was hot, crisp, delicious, fresh and we all enjoyed it. The... More

Ate at Giovanni's daily whilst in Waikiki. Meals are huge and taste is fantastic. Pasta,Pizza and salads where my favourite. Menu is awesome something for everyone to big to list check out menu online "It's Great". Deserts are amazing and huge.

Another restaurant we really enjoyed & would go back to. We were seated straight away, as we were there a little earlier than the evening rush. We all enjoyed our food & the mimosa was good too! Carole : )

Definitely a favorite for a casual meal. There are several varieties of pizza~ and we've never had one we didn't like!! The salads are large and very fresh!! And I must mention the delicious strawberry martini!! They offer takeout as well and that has worked well for us also!!

This place has some awesome pizza. I also had the Ruben sandwich but was not impressed. The food portions are good sized. If you are not there before 7pm expect to wait to get a seat. This place is always packed and a line to get inside.

I was staying in the Embassy Suites across the street and was looking for a place to hang out while my family slept in. The staff suggested Giovanni's Pastrami across the street. I sat at the bar since I was alone but there were a number of tables. Full service bar as well as a pretty good menu. I did... More

This diner is right in the shopping area, and is convenient for a quick fun meal. It's full of TV's with sport, has a big central bar that folk sat at to eat (think Cheers but in a more modern place) and plenty of booths for small groups and families to sit in. I'd summarise as an upmarket diner. We... More

There was a 15 minute wait for our table so we had a drink at the bar - all good. Tomas our waiter was fast and efficient and our meals arrived quickly. The food is uncomplicated and satisfying. My lasagne was yummy and the portion generous. No starter or sweet necessary. So if you want a casual meal, offering reasonable... More

Nice and fresh and lots of options for a night in! We got some take away from here - great Sliders and everything was hot and freshly made.
