OMG! The shrimp is heaven! If you love scampi, then you'll love Giovanni's! Finger licking yummy! Squeeze the lemon all over the shrimp AND the rice! Everytime we take a drive on the north shore of oahu, we stop at the truck for a treat!

Fun lunch place. There are about 5-6 food trucks that park there. Giovanni's is so good. The shrimp scampi is really garlicy and delicious. I would recommend stopping here if you can. There are picnic tables so you can sit and eat.

Their Shrimp Scampi is the most popular but I like the Lemon/Butter more as it brings out the natural flavor of shrimps better. I ordered the half portion with 1 scoop of rice and 6 shrimps and they were just simply delicious! You've gotten love their humor about the no refund policy on the spicy ones too. I did ask them to de-shell the shrimps for me but they wouldn't. Well, there's a wash basin at the back to wash your hands...

Long que but worth the wait. Recommended by the locals. A ten dollar plate was enough for two. Best food I had on the island.

We were at the North Shore on Oahu and decided to eat at Giovanni's Shrimp Truck. We knew about them as we have eaten at their original truck near Kahuku. The shrimp were big, numerous and very tasty, with 2 scoops of white rice and garlic sauce over the shrimp and rice. Ask for their hot sauce on the side, a little goes a long way. I love their all beef garlic hotdogs served with 2 scoops of rice too...Yummy!!!
