Garlic shrimp was awesome. We also had a delicious coconut drink. Eat outside on picnic tables. Stopped here on the way up to the North Shore.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We ate here after my SUP Surf lesson. The food was good and it was an authentic food truck experience. All of their food except for plain boiled shrimp is extremely garlicky. If you don't do garlic, go to one of the other trucks in the area. A fun stop.

“The best shrimp truck!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

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!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

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.
