Before I came out to oahu this was a must try for me along with the yellow shrimp shack truck on the other side of the island. Between the two of them Giovanni's shrimp scampi is a clear winner. Sooo delicious I ordered two plates the second time I went. (I drive far out of my way to eat there) the shrimp shack was disappointing because the shrimp was not deveined and you pretty much have to eat the shrimps crap along with your meal! Gross!

So this is like the must try recommended by everyone visited Oahu. We drive a long way to haunt this truck vendor down. Apparently the truck stayed at the same location everyday. There are few table seatings. The garlic shrimp was good but the place is not sanitize at all. There are hundreds of flies circling the shrimp truck and free running cocks trying to fight each other. We took our food to go...

I am glad I finally get to try this place on my forth trip to Oahu. But I won't come back again. The wait its about 30 minutes under the scorching sun and fly army,

As I am writing this I am drooling! I have been here 3 times in our last 3 trips to Hawaii and we are going in October and I can't wait to get back to Giovanni's! Whenever we go to Oahu we rent a car for the day and drive to the North Shore stopping at the Dole Factory on the way, but all the while I am looking forward to lunch at Giovanni's which is always the highlight of the day trip to the North Shore! By far the best shrimp I have ever had and we love it! I will have to bring my Sharpie this time as we have yet to sign the truck! Love Giovanni's and if I ever get my wish to live on Oahu, I would be in heaven to be able to eat here more often!
