“New Yorker who approves!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We recently relocated to Leesburg from NY City so we're very picky about our pizza and Italian food. We are so happy that we tried Giovanni's!!! It's excellent! The pizza was the best NY pizza we've had in VA (especially the Sicilian) and everything else we tried was delicious too. We happen to love the way it's just a "no frills" pizzeria like back home. These types of places don't need to go overboard with decor if the food is right.....and it is! To those of you who gave this place bad reviews because of the appearance of the restaurant just don't get it. Now if we can just get them to deliver, we can pretend we're in NY again!

“NY/NJ style pizza in VA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

The restaurant is nothing to speak of inside - just your typical pizza place. But I grew up in NJ, and I am used to a certain kind of pizza - thin (but not too thin crust), with a certain ratio of sauces to cheese to dough. And this place does it for me - the only place in Loudoun county that comes close, in my opinion. Prices are very good, but they do NOT deliver.

“Decent food, decent prices, worth a visit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

This is a very typical Italian food joint. The food was good, the service was good enough, the atmosphere was typical. It wasn't delicious, homemade numminess, but it was just fine. When we're in the mood for Italian, this is a decent choice for a sit-down meal. Nothing special, nothing bad. Convenient location for Leesburg, close to a couple of the hotels.
