While I enjoyed the Linguini Bongole, $13.25, Giovanni's has always been a confusing place to me. A mom and pop family pizza joint that dabbles at being a little more upscale than they need. Great entrees with ancient scratched up blue plastic Pepsi glasses to serve drinks. The Linguini Vongole comes with either a white or red clam sauce. I... More

Love the pizza, might have it tonight for dinner, I have been there several times and each time the food is the same quality. They do have a nice salad selection also

Their pizza is my favorite. I've tried the lasagna and it's good but I prefer the pizza. The calzones have a ton of cheese. I love cheese but this was way way too much for my liking. I ended up digging a lot of the cheese out just to be able to eat it. Definitely try the pizza though especially... More

We love this place! It's not fancy but the food is great. The decor is not much. The lighting is a little dim in the seating area, the kitchen and checkout area are well lit. You can pick up for carryout orders or sit in the dining area. The pizza is thin crust and very good. I am a fan... More

Went here based on reviews. I had personal pan pizza, hubby had Chicken Marsala, and both had house salad. The salads had only iceberg lettuce, no "real greens", and the house dressing was horrible. Neither of us could finish the salad. Pizza crust was ok, but hardly any cheese on it. It had very little flavor. Hubby said the same... More

I've been going to Giovanni's since the late sixties. I always come back. They have the best pizza I've ever had. Giovanni's is my "go to" place for my favorite slice. The crust is firm, the toppings are always tasty. The servers are friendly. You couldn't ask for a better experience. I always get the pizza. I cannot attest to... More

My husband and I selected Giovanni's because it was close to our hotel in Fairborn. We were so happy when we saw this cute little restaurants store front on the main street. The atmosphere - family - but not bad. The lighting a little too bright for my liking - but who cares about that when the food arrived! It... More

The pasta dishes are all good. The lasagna requires a 30 minute wait but is worth it. Pizzas are authentic Italian style, nothing like cookie cutter chain pizzas. This is one of our regular choices for Italian food.

They were very busy. We managed to find two seats at the bar. Our food was a little slow getting to us but it was hot when it was delivered. The bartender was courteous and gave us suggestions on drinks to go with our meal. Food, drinks, staff -excellent.
