“Excellent, authentic Italian food”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Giovanni's is a family-owned pizzeria on Front Street in a small town in Central Illinois. Friends drive from Bloomington-Normal just for this pizza. My fave dish is actually the spinach ravioli - yum! This has nothing to do with the food itself, but I've been known to choose Giovanni's on occasion just because they're so quick. Place a call for pick-up, and it'll be ready in 20-25 minutes. Sadly, they're closed on Mondays, but they are open late the rest of the week. The only thing I don't like is their green peppers - they always have an over cooked, squishy taste. I just had the spinach, garlic and tomato pizza, and it was absolutely excellent.

This is a family owned business and they are proud of that.The home made pizza has fresh ingredients and the service is pleasant and efficient. Nice wine list for the area.

“Best pizza ever!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This is an Italian place that is locally owned. The owner was working the night we were there. The pizza had a homemade crust and was cooked to perfection. We decided on the thick crust and it was well worth the wait. Best pizza I have ever had. I will definitely stop back in when passing through El Paso.

“Great pizza!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Being away from such good and authentic pizza has been a challenge as I seek to find something comparable in South Africa, but I'm looking forward to coming home for a visit and enjoying some yummy Giovanni's Pizza!!! I've never had anything that I didn't like, and it is always fast, fresh, and warm! Mr. G is always friendly, as well as all of their staff, which makes the experience that much better. Sometimes the pizza can be a little greasy, but nothing a quick dab with your napkin can't fix! Best pizza in El Paso!!! A must-have if you are not local as this will be a worthwhile experience!
