할레이바 입구(또는)출구 맥도날드 앞에 있다고 들었는데 은근히 찾기 힘들다. 지오반니 트럭앞에만 줄을서 있고 다른 곳은 파리만 날린다. Hot and spicy shrimp is really really hot...I rather recommand scampi shrimp.

We drove around the island one day and looking for a lunch. We passed by this shrimp truck. I had done some research before we traveled to Hawaii and everyone highly recommended Giovanni's. I now see why, they did not disappoint. The shrimp were good size and good quantity. You get a dozen for 14 bucks with 2 scoops of... More

I don't remember what the dish was that we ordered, but it was the "favourite" one. Sooooo good!! There was a really long line when we got there at noon, but totally worth the wait! Your hands get pretty covered in garlicky goodness, but there's a little sink with soap to clean up with. Trust me, you'll need it. I... More

The scampi, garlic shrimp was awesome!..the spicy version, is very spicy but still very good. The atmosphere is cool with all the food trucks. All the food smelled good, but we wanted to try Giovanni's and we are glad we did.

The line is always so long but it's totally worth it. My favorite one`s were the spicy and garlic butter shrimps.

I was told on many occasions to try the shrimp trucks. I chose Giovanni's as it seemed to be the most popular both by the line and by word of mouth. It was good, but I failed to see the hype. It is worth mentioning that the shrimp is not peeled. The quantity you get is good for the price.

3 of us stopped here and we were still full from our last meal but decided we needed to at least split one plate of scampi shrimp, delicious...we ate the whole thing. Keep up the good work.

Tour busses come from all over the island and drop off 70-100 at a time. The food is good but unless you come at an off time expect to wait over an hour. The food is good but basic. The only option other than shrimp is a garlic hot dog. There are two small food stands with roasted corn and... More
