I was really wanting pizza so we stopped here for lunch. The pizza was delicious but the sandwiches were not very good. They had a decent variety on their drink menu. The service was pretty average.

Excellent place for lunch and dinner. We got right in and service was great. The place is bigger than expected with a quick glance inside. We were waited on right away and the food came out quickly. The Reubens are fantastic.

Browsed at the menu, but kept walking. Thought again and turned around for happy hour and early dinner at Giovanni Pastrami. The free pizza was o.k, but the meal was very good; Greek Salad, Roast Prime Rib Dip, and Turkey Club, plus beer all around. Great service and very reasonably priced.

Had dinner at this restaurant. The decor is like a sports bar and grill which gives a nice casual feel to it. Great for an informal meal. I had the loco moco which was very nice. My wife being a vegetarian didnt have many choices on the menu to choose from. She ordered a salad which was 90 percent lettuce.... More

We actually went to Giovanni Pastrami to get the Round Table Pizza they serve there. We looked at a menu and decided to get an appetizer, the Garlic Shrimp. Never having been there before we also ordered individual pizzas for the 2 of us. When I got the appetizer it was huge. It had 10 large shrimp smothered in a... More

We have been a few times when visiting. Lots of sports screens and different styles of seating something for everyone. The staff are friendly, the beer is cold and the food is good. We enjoy the Reuben sandwich and have also had a very nice piece of pizza which was served complimentary during a good happy hour. So we have... More

Despite the name, caters to the beer and burger crowd. Server was good, but bartender slow (couldn't find white wine or bottled water). Food was OK but pricey for what was served.

While you wouldn't necessarily expect good deli food in Honolulu, you'll get just that at Giovanni's. While I would hesitate to compare it to New York's finest, it is more than acceptable and you'll find good service to boot.
