Diner Reviews
  • "i made a reservation and upon checking in the hostess cancelled my reservation manually and the place reeks of chlorine. the food was decent and the only good part was the free cheese pizza with every order. if it wasn't for the good service i would be giving this place a negative review. don't dine here unless you enjoy the smell of chlorine."

  • "We decided to eat at Giovanni Pastrami the last night of our trip. We so wish we would have found it sooner. It was about a 10 minute walk from our hotel in a great area on Lewers street. It is a sports bar, but the service was the best we had the whole week in Honolulu and the prices and food were great. We would highly recommend giving Giovanni Pastrami a try."

  • "We were looking for a place not to far from Airport at the end of our trip to Hawaii and found Giovanni Pastrami on Open Table and it was perfect. Would highly recommend for all reasons. Staff, Food, etc... All excellent."

  • "I went to Giovanni Pastrami for the 2nd time. The first time being in 2008. The food portions were HUGE! Good atmosphere for watching sports."

  • "We went to Giovannis for our Valentines and it was nice. The food has a large selection but the Giovanni Shrimp plate is not, how should I say, tasy but very garlicy, too garlicy. It would be good to have real garlic chopped but it was clearly imitation minced garlic, big mound of garlic over both scoops of rice and a mound over the shrimp. I presume I may be comparing to the Kahuku shrimp so that probably why it was as satisfactory. The server abby was super friendly and bubbly, lots of bubbles. And the round table pizza is always awesome. I would definitely recommend, it still has a large selection of food and breakfast is all day."

  • "Delicious pizzas and reasonable prices for Waikiki. Maui Zaui may be the best! GP has lots of TVs so the place makes a good sports bar too."

  • "This was an okay place. Not nearly as Italian as the name would suggest. The most Italian item we saw on the menu is the pizza.... which is apparently from Round Table Pizza. Even an old Italian guy sitting next to us was going on about how he was hoping he could at least order some Pastrami. Overall an okay place to grab a bite."

  • "Found Giovanni's while on vacation in Honolulu Waikiki. They take reservations or walk-ups. Made reservation about 15 minutes before going, but when we got there, there was a line of folks waiting. I highly recommend reserving on OpenTable before going - to ensure a short wait. Food and service was great."

  • "The very first time I ever went to Giovanni Pastrami, the group I was with ordered pastrami Reuben pizza. It was the first time I had ever tried a Reuben anything. I feel in love with it at first bite. A few years after that wonderful taste I was back and couldn't find it on the menu. Oh how disappointed I was but they have MANY other wonderful things to choose from. After getting pur food a manager came by to see how everything was and I let him know of my disappointment. He then let me know a little secret. Even though its not on the menu, you can still order it. OH JOY!!!! So this visit I must say very satisfied to have been able to order it. All is well in the world again. Come in, try this place out. Great food and service."

  • "Great restaurant, sports bar atmosphere. 2 of us for lunch this day, lots of menu choices, food well prepared, very tasty, large portions. Service very good, server knew menu well, helpful. Very popular restaurant, a local favorite. Definitely will be back next time in the area."

  • "This restaurant is pretty good for what it is; a sports bar/family restaurant in the heart of a tourist mecca...One thing that always kind of annoys me is that EVERYTHING is an upcharge. Want to have your burger rare? You can for an extra $3 (have to upgrade to the better beef). Not really a problem until you consider the very high prices (portions, however, are pretty large so it makes sense...) With that said, however, I always enjoy coming to this place as it's an awesome place to hang out with friends, watch sports, and grab either a quick bite or full dinner. Service is very efficient and drinks are made well. Anytime I come to Giovanni's my biggest problem is always deciding whether to order breakfast or dinner food!"

  • "This was a great family experience on 2 occasions while in Waikiki. If you enjoy Deli style food then this is a must. Great ambience and excellent, friendly service on both occasions."

  • "When dining along the Beachwalk, on Lewers St, in Waikiki, we usually choose between The Yardhouse and Giovanni Pastrami when we're in the mood for casual dining and a large American menu choice. Go a bit further on Kalakaua Avenue, and you add The Cheesecake Factory, as another great choice. I go to Giovanna Pastrami for its very good deli. I was suffering from cold symptoms, from an allergy, and so I enjoyed the chicken matzo ball soup again. It's got plenty of chicken, celery, carrots, and other great stuff, including two hearty matzo balls. I've also enjoyed a nice corned-beef sandwich and a generous BLT there."

  • "We went there for a late lunch. They provide you a free slice of Cheese Pizza after 3pm for any order. It's a great deal."

  • "we had the pastrami cheese fries. very garlicky & good. of course the pastrami reuben was great! can't wait to go back & try different sandwiches. I took home a triple decker Chelsea (combo of pastrami & corned beef) & asked that the bread be toasted. I guess they're not able to toast it if it doesn't say they don't on the menu. sad."
