“BEST NYC Style Pizza in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

This is the best NYC style pizza in the area. I grew up in Queens and know NYC pizza. This is the best you will get - and it is not a compromise. If you want to sit with the family and have a "family style" red checkered table cloth experience, this is your spot. The staff is friendly when they get to know you and the pizza never disappoints. There are two places for pizza in Leesburg: Giovanni's for NY style and Fireworks for wood-burning. Both excellent choices. ALSO: they have the best subs in town – try the steak and cheese.

“NY style pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

Great casual family place. Great NY style pizza.... Including anchovies if you want them! Inexpensive pitchers of beer too. We are never disappointed by the pizza pie!

“An old favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Subs, pizza, calzones, pasta..you can't go wrong with this place! We've been coming here since high school and it's still great. Tip, get the small calzone for a single person (and it could really feed 2 with a side salad or fries). The staff is always friendly. It's no wonder they are still in business!

“Best Take out for Pizza anywhere near Leesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

I agree with John P's review. I, too grew up in Northern New Jersey, right outside of the pasta triangle and just 12 miles west of NYC and this is the real thing! Believe me, we've tried them all but keepcoming back here. My advise ask them to make it a little well done and NEVER order by saying Pizza Pie... any real Italian knows the word for pie is PIZZA! Enjoy.

“New Yorker who approves!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We recently relocated to Leesburg from NY City so we're very picky about our pizza and Italian food. We are so happy that we tried Giovanni's!!! It's excellent! The pizza was the best NY pizza we've had in VA (especially the Sicilian) and everything else we tried was delicious too. We happen to love the way it's just a "no frills" pizzeria like back home. These types of places don't need to go overboard with decor if the food is right.....and it is! To those of you who gave this place bad reviews because of the appearance of the restaurant just don't get it. Now if we can just get them to deliver, we can pretend we're in NY again!
