“not bad NY style pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

I came here only once, to try the NY style pizza and I have found it not too bad, despite the fact that being Italian, I prefer the real pizza. I had a margherita which was huge. The dough was good, the tomato ok and the cheese very greasy (you can see it the day after on the remaining slices). Overall it was ok,I I will try it again.

“Amazing Pizza, just too bad they don't deliver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

Great pizza, as good as any I have ever had in new york.

If you want to go on a Friday night just be ready for a bit of a walk and wait as the parking lot is always full and its usually packed inside.
Always worth the wait.
Ohhh and make sure to try the steak & cheese

“Do Not Miss This Pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2010

We (2 50ish females) ate here 9/24/2010. The location is in a strip mall and the ambiance is fine. It is very clean and was bustling with locals which was a good sign. We are pizza lovers and have eaten pizza all over the world. You will find very few which are better thin crust pizzas than this! The cheese was delicious with a good, not overly seasoned tomato base and a great crust. The other food looked very good as well but we never get past the pizza. The service was good. We also thought the prices for the food and wine were very low. We had pizza at Fireside as well. It was very good but Giovanni'a was great!

“Best Pizza on the East Coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

Although the place itself may look a little run down, the food is excellent. Get a house salad and a pizza for sure!

“Amazing cheese pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2010

Giovanni's is definitely not the prettiest or cleanest place in town, but they have got the BEST cheese pizza I have ever tasted. It's crispy and chewy and all around yummy. I am not a fan of their sausage, which is cut in sheets - who's ever heard of that?? But they are one of the ONLY places that offers green olives as a topping. I usually don't stray from the pie when I am there, but my brother always gets the steak and cheese sandwich and loves it. They don't offer delivery, so be forewarned that if you pick up your pie to go, it won't taste nearly as good as if you were to eat it fresh from the oven. The wait staff is not overly friendly or fast, so don't go if you are in a hurry. But the food is great and the prices are reasonable…so give it a try!!
