“Good Standard Italian in a resort area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Don't expect high end or fancy, but do expect quick service, large portions, and good food. Pizza was VERY good. Lasagna was far too "doughy" for me - too many noodles and not enough meat. Great for groups and families. Mammoth lacks really good restaurants, but we'd come back to Giovanni's again. Kids love it.

“Part of our Mammoth ritual.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Good Pizza's and we also like their greek salad. Keep in mind that you are in a remote place like Mammoth and adjust your expectation.

“Great food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012 via mobile

Landed in Mammoth after a long flight from London via LA. everyone tired, jed-lagged and hungry. We needed good food cooked well in a nice atmosphere with friendly service. We got it all. Pizzas were really tasty. Two local beers were cold and really welcome! Our waitress was friendly and helpful. You can tell a place is good by how many locals are eating there: a steady stream of diners & people coming for take-out. We'll be eating here again on this holiday!
