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.

Everybody has their favorite pizza combination and mine is a deluxe, thin crust pizza. Giovanni's delivered. The very crispy crust, great sausage, and tasty pepperoni made for a delightful dinner. Side salads are good and cheap. Service was quick and friendly. Good deal - do it.

Nestled near the center of a couple streets of businesses (don't miss Foys nearby in October!) sits this unassuming little place that speaks to folks looking for an old fashioned Italian meal. I didn't have pizza but our dining mates did and they go there frequently there just for the pizza. It looked crisp and had lots of toppings. I... More

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.
