“Great ingredients”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2011

Came here with a restaurant.com certificate (check it out). This is a small chain in the sb area and it's some of the best pizza around. imo the pizza may be slightly better up at the location near solvang, but this place is still really good. Ingredients seem a lot fresher than most other pizza places and the beer is reasonably priced. Only complaint I guess is they dont seem to keep the place very clean, especially the bathrooms

“Best Pizza in Carp, they make it your way”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2009

Giovannis is the place for pizza in Carpinteria. Very fresh ingredients, and they will make the crust thin if you request it that way.

Some evening they have live music, too.

“A great last minute find . .”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2007

We were camping in Carpinteria, and after a day spent at the beach, we decided to order some pizza (who wants to cook!). We drove around town and found this place on Carpinteria Avenue. It was 8:57 p.m. They stop serving at 9:00. I was feeling the crunch, the lady in front of me kept changing her order. By time it was my turn, it was after 9:00, but they said they would accept take-out orders. We got the usual kids pepperoni and cheese, but then my niece wanted the BBQ Chicken pizza. I tried to nix it but was outvoted. Good thing too, cause it was excellent! Reasonable pricing too, 3 XL pizzas came to $49.
I would recommend this place to families!!
