Had dinner at this restaurant. The decor is like a sports bar and grill which gives a nice casual feel to it. Great for an informal meal. I had the loco moco which was very nice. My wife being a vegetarian didnt have many choices on the menu to choose from. She ordered a salad which was 90 percent lettuce.... More

We actually went to Giovanni Pastrami to get the Round Table Pizza they serve there. We looked at a menu and decided to get an appetizer, the Garlic Shrimp. Never having been there before we also ordered individual pizzas for the 2 of us. When I got the appetizer it was huge. It had 10 large shrimp smothered in a... More

We have been a few times when visiting. Lots of sports screens and different styles of seating something for everyone. The staff are friendly, the beer is cold and the food is good. We enjoy the Reuben sandwich and have also had a very nice piece of pizza which was served complimentary during a good happy hour. So we have... More

Despite the name, caters to the beer and burger crowd. Server was good, but bartender slow (couldn't find white wine or bottled water). Food was OK but pricey for what was served.

While you wouldn't necessarily expect good deli food in Honolulu, you'll get just that at Giovanni's. While I would hesitate to compare it to New York's finest, it is more than acceptable and you'll find good service to boot.

The food is good here but the service is poor. For a sports bar they have great tv coverage but the service is lacking. Long wait to get order taken and for food to arrive. I could understand if it was busy but it was not. We were there around 2 pm.

I was so excited to see a "New York style deli"! Of course I ordered the Rueban sandwich. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. The bread was so lite it looked and tasted like white bread. The corned beef was very fatty and not much flavor. Very little sauerkraut with Russian dressing, not 1000 island. Potato salad had too much vinegar... More

We stopped in for pizza on an evening we did not want to eat lots and spend lots. The bill was reasonable and the pizza very tasty. The service was great. They have many other items to choose from on the menu.
