My wife and I decided to try Giovanni's for a late dinner. We settled on cocktails and two (2) appetizers. The service was outstanding. Our server, Elenora, was attentive and efficient. We received our cocktails in just a few minutes. When our appetizers arrived, the onion rings were lukewarm, at best. The chili nachos, although tasty, may have had 2... More

Was happy with my food and the service, wasn't an amazing meal but good enough to go back next time I am in Waikiki and fancy a corned-beef sandwich.

The atmosphere was fun. There are several big screen TVs to watch the game. It's a very classy bar. Loved the nachos. They were made with real cheese not the liquid cheese. The honey BBQ wings were too sweet for one person in our party. Everybody else was happy with the food. Definitely recommend it.

Shared a pizza between us and weren't sure what size to order. Staff were really helpful and we ate everything we ordered which was good as hate wastage. Pizza was delicious and reasonably priced for the local area. Good atmosphere and would have no hesitation recommending to others (probably best meal we ate whilst in Honolulu).

Like others we went to Giovanni on recommendation of our hotel . Also throughout the week we were in Waikiki, Giovanni always had less of a line up, even though lots of people passing through. I think this is better for families with teenagers rather than younger folk. We found the service very welcoming. The pasta meals sizes were larger... More
