The little hidden away restaurant is great! Their pizzas looked fabulous but, we ordered the Manicotti and Calzones. Yum!

Gets my vote for the best pizza I've tried in Albuquerque. The Supreme includes just enough green chile bite to take the New York style pizza up a notch. A great addition. Homemade lasagne and chicken parmigiana were okay but not spectacular. House salad has lots of good stuff in it. Vinaigrette dressing was really mild.

Whenever we are missing the east coast taste (and the feel), we come to Giovanni's. With my mom/husband being from NJ/NY, respectfully, that means we come here a fair amount. The pizza here has always been the closest to that great pie you can get in the east coast and that is largely due to the parents (from Italy, I... More

Hidden away in a lonely strip mall on San Pedro sits a hidden gem of deliciousness, Giovanni's Pizza. I've been eating at Giovanni's for the last 16 years and even though the faces at the front counter have changed, I have never had a bad meal or negative experience. The Calzones are enormous, full of whatever goodness suits your palate... More

Best pizza in Albuquerque. Now that's pizza. Growing up we had a pizza place in San Diego right in my little hilltop neighborhood that was like no other. Gaetanos Pizza in Tierrasanta 92124. Now we are talking pizza with an old world punch. I never thought I'd find another. Sweet sauce. Loads of cheese with a big squeeze of garlic.... More

I'm a Chicago style pizza fan but my husband is a New York style pizza lover. This is one of his favorite places to eat at, ever. Not in a great part of town. All walks of life can be found here, from homeless to trendsetters. Anyway, the food is so good that I take my kids here by myself.... More

Don't come to NM for pizza. Don't come for pasta. Don't come for seafood. It's not what we "do". But, if you're in NM, and maybe you're from "back east", and you just want a great slice of pizza to tie you over until you can get back home ... This is the place! The best pick? Hands down, the...

Support local. Great reviews. Good service. Clean. Greasy pizza. Not the NYC pizza I was hoping to find.

Apparently, this neighborhood joint does not advertise because they do a booming business as a result of word-of-mouth. We were there 1pm on a very hot Saturday afternoon, and the place was almost empty except for a few folks coming in for take-out orders. I would describe the place as 'utilitarian'...we're here to give you pizza. No coffee, no wine.... More

Rated the best of Abq? I'm not sure. Its okay. With so many wood fired pizza places these days (Lucas, Farina, Scarpas....) pizza is pretty tough competition. It's not bad but I've had better in the city. As far as traditional pizza goes Dions is still better in my opinion.
