Great food

We eat here often and have never had anything that we didn't like. Staff is polite and good is delicious. Among our favorites is the muffuletta. We get it with pasta salad as the side and we split the large sandwich. I have also had their lasagna, pizza, chicken parm and all their subs. I can... read more

The place is a very pleasant... More

Tried to go to this restaurant at 7:45 on a Monday night. They had just closed (even though the sign says they're open until 9). Went back the next night, because I wanted some NY Style Pizza. I'm from the east and, being stuck in the midwest, I am drawn to places that say they have NY Style. Well, Giovanni's... More

We waited about 45 minutes for our food. The salad bar was barely a salad bar, no tomatoes, no cucumbers, no peppers. It was lacking variety. The lasagna was burnt and what was not burn was like rubber, and there was onions and bell peppers on it. That needs to offered as an option because it ruined the taste of... More

In short, the calzones are amazing and easily large enough to be two meals (think 12-14" pizza folded in half). The sandwiches a traditional pizzas are good and the appetizer garlic bread is really good, too.
