A great way to end a morning surf sesh, some good shrimp. I recommend the hot ones, but be prepared for some nice spice, they don’t lie about it being hot.

Was really excited to try the scampi, i have been waiting months to get back here and try this. After a couple hour drive and a crazy long line I have to say that I was not that impressed. In my opinion places like Red...More

The lines were loooooong! It went fast though (as far as ordering) not as fast waiting for it! CASH ONLY—they have an atm at the McDonalds across the street. I specifically went up to North Shore for the shrimp and the Matsumoto Shave Ice. I...More

A dozen of fresh shrimps served with 2 scoops of rice and a lemon slice! YUM! Be prepared to get your hands dirty! The chickens walking around the tables could be a deal-breaker for the clean freaks, but Giovanni’s will definitely not disappoint! Shrimps are...More

Giovanni's certainly lived up to our expectations and the hype provided by our friends. The garlic shrimp is excellent - better that what you can get in Waikiki, and certainly worth the half hour waiting in line. The only downside is that there's no place...More

The line moves fast and the shrimp were so tasty. There are several truck locations, we tried the truck near Haleiwa. The parking lot is small, but moves quick (plus there was an attendant helping).

Amazing shrimp; family shared two plates - the scampi and hot. The truck is in a parking lot with 3-5 other trucks. When we were there the majority of people were at Giovanni’s truck.
