Lots of items on the menu and the pizza is outstanding, even the gluten - free pizza was very good. I had fettuccine Alfredo which was just average. Everybody else seemed to be ordering pizza. This is not a high end, fine dining restaurant. Think metal chairs, vinyl tablecloths, paper napkins. There is one long table in the middle that... More

Good family Italian restaurant. The sauces were flavorful and servings generous. But watch out for the home salad dressing. When they say it has garlic they mean GARLIC.

In-laws took us out for pizza here. Place is popular with the locals. The place was decorated with a 60's/70's type feel. Nothing fancy. Service was quick and helpful. Pizza was very good with a large enough to feed 4 adults.

I've been to this restaurant twice and I will not be going back. Both visits were not that great but the second (and last) was what has sealed the deal. To begin with, I was not seated for a considerable amount of time even though there were plenty of tables available (no one else was waiting and I was by... More

While visiting the National Air Force Museum with our 98 year old dad, we came across Giovanni's on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. It's a real gem! It reminded us of Luigi's in Akron. The service was great and the thin pizza took us back to last year's trip around Italy. The most authentic pizza I've had... More

Good food, friendly waiter, fast service. However, if you've been to Europe or even Italy, you might want to take it easy. It is American style Italian cuisine; tasty and good.

We have been going to Giovanni's since 1980's. The pizza hasn't changed - still the best. Other items on their menu are good also. If you like garlic dressing - it is good, strong and will kill off any bad ailment.

We love Giovanni's, especially sitting at the bar and hanging out with friends and family, and the staff! Carl is a great bartender, always makes the best suggestions for food and drinks. We recently stopped in and started off with the toasted ravioli from the bar menu- spicy and yummy! We then ordered the angel hair pasta with shrimp and... More

A local favorite for decades. Giovanni has thin crispy crust pizza if that's your thing. The menus also has lots of really good Italian dishes. Great place to bring the family or hang out with friends.

We go to Giovanni's almost every Friday. Love the pizza but they have a full Italian Menu. Most weekends is very busy so remember to make a reservation for Friday or Saturday.
