this is a great place for BIG pizza and BIG calzone and a cold beer! :) My brother and I always come here for that golden brown crust and cooked feel. This is the kind of place that earns it's rep! We will always come back here and I never have a bad experience. :)

The calzone is more than a meal. The crust of the brick oven baked calzone was perfectly browned and could easily be shared between two people. One was mushroom, mozzarella, and ricotta. The second was just mozzarella and ricota. The mushroom one seemed to have ricotta in every bite, while the plain one had all the ricotta only in the... More

Our waitress was great, friendly and quick. She was very knowledgeably about the menu and made great recommendations! And their everyday pizza slices are half off after 9pm which was serendipitous. The cookie skillet was well worth it!....peanut butter, chocolate and ice cream on hot cookie. Casual, and a good place to grab a quick bite.

A lot of people LOVE this place. They definitely have a fan base. If you like your large pizza to be a LARGE pizza, well here you get one. This place has an outdoor area during the warmer months, and a decent beer on tap selection. Worth a try,

Giovanni's is a great choice for casual neighborhood restaurant! There is a wide selection and everything is always excellent! We love the food and so do our kids! We have had the pizza, pasta, wings, and burgers and have never been disappointed. The service is also great!

Giovanni's is a comfortable neighborhood restaurant. On my visit I saw a lot of families there as well as a number of couples. It is a very comfortable and friendly restaurant. I was struck by how friendly the servers were. The menu is a diverse collection of pizza, salads, sandwiches and pasta dishes. There's a lot to choose from. Everything... More

Very nice on the patio in the summer. Salads are great and love their specials. Tater tots loaded are great finished with a baked chocolate chip cookie sundae! Highly recommend a visit.

Terrible pizza. Terrible service. I've eaten pizza all over CT definitely the worse I have ever tasted. Also over priced. Don't buy a half and half pizza they will charge you full price for each half.
