Giovanni's is a great restaurant for pick up or dine in. I've done both and have been nothing short of pleased with their service, quality of the food, and friendliness of the staff.

Some of the best subs I ever ate. I had Italian sub toasted in the oven. Yummy. My husband had a cheesesteak grinder. We go there to eat because we like the crunch of the homemade sub rolls.

We went there to try the Italian food. They have some of the best subs. They also have great pasta. Their pizza is delicious. The service is great and the whole staff is friendly.

Pizza was delicious. My husband got two slices of the Giovanni Special and loved it. He said he'd definitely order that again. The slices are huge! I got a slice of pizza with mushrooms, pepperoni, and banana peppers. The peppers were nice and spicy! I think this is our new Saturday lunch spot.

We split a pizza for supper. This is one of the better places in Hanover for pizza. It's tucked out of the way near Codorus State Park on route 216. They will allow you to bring beer in to drink with your meal but they do not sell any beer. Great pizza, great service and decent prices. We will be... More

There must be at least 50 choices for pizza in our town. If another pizza joint opens, I will lose it. How can one town eat so much pizza? Well, I am tempted to eat it everyday if it is from Giovanni's. Located very close to Codorus State Park, it is convenient to pick up a pie and take it... More
