After looking at all the pizza restaurants in the area (I'm stuck in a hotel) I decided on Giovanni's. The order process over the phone was simple and painless and I was told the delivery would be made in about 1 hour. True to the young lady's word, in 1 hour the pizza arrived. Sad thing is, it was cold!... More

Came here for an early dinner as we were attending a concert. Received a welcoming greeting by the hostess. Our server was very attentive. We ordered cocktails & an appetizer. We decided to split our meal & everything was delicious.

I've had their homemade white pizza several times and its fabulous. Made with 3 different white cheeses and garlic, its not boring, It's delicious. Sometimes I buy a few slices just to bring It home for later. I like that they always seem to have it ready to buy,by the slice.

Giovanni's used to be very good, and we ordered there exclusively, either eat-in or take out. That was years ago. Over the past five years, their pizza's seem to move so fast through the kitchen that they just don't have the baking time necessary, and they've gotten skimpy on the amount of sauce they use. My son, a long-time Giovanni... More

This has been my kid's favorite place for pizza since they were young. They love the garlic bread. The pizza has great flavor and we are never disappointed. On weekends, they can cook the pizza a little less than we like. So, we sometimes order it "well done", which they understand. The pizza is thin like New York style but... More

Lasagne served in a dish swimming in sauce, literally swimming, and a whole tablespoon of ground beef in the dish. The warm salad featured shitake mushrooms but indeed had portabellas instead. The outer rim of the salad had bits of spring green lettuces, but it is served on a bed of head lettuce. The hot tea cup is approx. 4... More

Travel weekly with my job. Heard about the great food at Giovanni's. Don't be put off NT strip store location. Fabulous food. Full bar and wine reasonable prices. Had veal piccata and spaghetti with meat sauce. Wonderful. Took a good portion home. Would definitely go back! Nan M.

Go here often. Their stuffed pizza is great. We get the whole pizza for 2 and take most of it home. Delicious. Left overs for couple days. Appetizers are also nice. Chicken tenders are large portions and mozzarella sticks great too. We live only 2 blocks away and come here often. Always great food and nice atmosphere. Great staff too.

Offering some of the best authentic Italian food in the area, it is my pleasure to recommend Giovanni's. I'm a pizza lover, and Giovanni's does not disappoint. I highly recommend the Blanca, the freshness of the garlic really makes this one outstanding. The Margherita is also one of my favorites. Our family favorite dish is eggplant, and if you like...
