Reviewed 17 August 2013

I moved to the area earlier this year and have tried the pizza closest to my home. I wasn't impressed and haven't ordered pizza since. Based on the most recent review here, I thought I'd give Giovanni's a try. I'm from Brooklyn and am a bit fussy about pizza. :) I'm sure many people would disagree with my preferences but here's the bar that a set: Pizza should have a thin, crispy crust. It should be crisp enough that it doesn't flop over when you fold it to eat it. Sauce should not be sweet. It should taste like a savory Sunday sauce that Grandma had on the stove all afternoon. A pizza shouldn't be swimming in sauce - you should be able to taste it and not have any moving around on your slice. A great pizza has enough cheese to cover the slice and not so much that you choke on it. :) Giovanni's is quite good as local pizza goes.

Strip mall location with dated Italian decor similar to Sbarros. Had pizza which was ok but nothing special. Service is disorganized. Prices are typical for Italian strip mall dining in New Jersey. Ok for a quick meal but certainly not fine dining.

Giovanni's is by far the best pizza and Italian food in Hunterdon County. I jave eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding and very reasonably priced. Try their lobster ravioli and you will be hooked. The owners and staff are very friendly and will prepare dishes to your liking. They have great catering dishes as well. I highly recommend Giovanni's to friends and family.

Have only come here for takeout pizza because Falcone's was closed. The pizza is bland. Nothing special.

I took a chance after a customer meeting in the area work in having lunch here. The restaurant is very friendly and the food is spectacular. I was very much surprised at how good it was and will definitely be back. They made exactly how it is made at the best restaurants in Italy. The pizza is spectacular as well and great espressos.
