About
Don Giovanni has been serving delicious, affordable Italian cuisine in the Theater District for almost a quarter of a century. We are wholly a family affair, and our traditional Neapolitan restaurant boasts both a warm atmospheres and a lovely outdoor cafe. Pizzas are Don Giovanni’s specialty, with over twenty to choose from. Baked in our old fashioned coal fired brick oven, the dough is thin, crisp, and bursting with flavor. Fan favorites include our traditional Margherita Pizza, Quattro Formaggi, Pizza Pomodori, and White Clam Pizza. Don Giovanni has established itself as Time Square's best bargain and the premier place for delicious Italian cuisine. Don Giovanni Ristorante accepts orders

We arrived at about 10pm but the servers were welcoming and were absolutely fine when we asked if we could move outside to eat. The pizzas were done in a pizza oven and were great and reasonably priced - worth a visit!

Generous portions and well cooked and it is very nice to sit outside and look at the people and traffic passing by on a summer evening.

Don't know where to start, except to say that we are sorry that we chose this restaurant. The only way that this place can stay open is by having a clientele that don't have enough time to complain as they are going to the theater....More
