The original thin crust and our three-cheese blend of mozzarella, cheddar and smoked provolone
Angel hair, garlic-basil butter sauce and parmesan cheese
Food was awesome. Awesome server!! Mix drinks were nasty 🤮 though. Either to strong or not sweet enough!!
Waiter was great and place was clean not too noisy but there was not many people there at 9am. Food unfortunately was overbooked but tasted good for the most part , the haupia bread pudding was amazing.
Friendly staff and yummy food and the love music was an added bonus!
My wife and I had salads and pizza with strawberry cheese cake for dessert. Salads and cake were great the pizza was good. Thin crust but not New York style. This was our second time eating here and I will definitely go back. Great waitress. It was Thursday night football so noisy but fun
We were seated quickly. We enjoyed the musician but thought the volume was set a bit too high for conversation. The server was friendly and efficient. The pizza was between good and excellent. I would return.
I had a very good pastrami Reuben and my wife had the garlic shrimp. Both dishes were good. Great waitress, overall a nice place. I will go back
Our waiter, Alfred, was wonderful! Food was good. Music was loud.
Food was very good. Had not been to restaurant before Expected a little quieter place. But enjoyed the music and food.
Really hit the spot, a short walk from our Waikiki hotel, made for a nice not fancy meal one night. Hannah, our server, was a superstar so attentive always there when you needed her, she made the visit. Good Covid protocol, everything they were supposed to do with no fuss. The food (pastrami) was very good but it should be with this name over the door. Would go back.
The food is very good. Since our stay we have been back another two times!!
About 70% of the menu items listed online weren't available, which was quite disappointing because the things that we wanted to order (omelette's) were no longer available at all.
The service was poor: they were not attentive at all to us even though they were not busy. We had to flag them down and ask for everything that we needed as the meal went on.
Jeff was our waiter and he did a fabulous job! He made sure we always had refills and was just overall outstanding!
Onion rings which cost extra cold and old. Very friendly waitress but she seemed really tired (630pm) pastrami utself was tasty but the sandwich was very oily. Pizza was awesome!. Probably due to Civid tue menu was way smaller then usually. Overall wasnt a good experience so i would rather take out
We loved the food and the wait staff was friendly but they had the music up, it was so LOUD we couldn’t hear the person talking across the table. We ended up leaving before finishing our food and taking it to go somewhere quieter.
The service was superb! I couldn’t believe how fast our food came out, AND IT WAS DELICIOUS!!!!
The food was good we had make your own pizza. The server was great. Came out really fast.
Great pastrami sandwich and great eggplant bites
Live music, sports on lots of tv’s & pretty darn good food
Food was great, sports bar atmosphere with live music.
We have visited a couple of times within the years. This visit would be our best visit. The bartender Jamie (I hope I got her name correct) was Busy but she handled the bar fantastically.
We came for Happy Hour. We enjoyed the Fried Rice, Chicken wings and the Ultimate pizza. We sent back the chicken fingers (we believe they were frozen out of the box/bag) that’s how it tasted. They handled the return with true hospitality. Thank you. We will be back.
Happy hour prices
Service was amazing and the food was great. I definitely recommend
Food was good, quick service, dessert was amazing!
Great place to watch sports. Only thing is there is no volume on TVs and you hear customers instead of the game.
Everything we ate was delicious! They accommodated our party of 7 for a better table with more space. It was a good night!
So noisy it was awful. Bar crowd was so loud and the live musician did not need speakers.
We met friends visiting the island and it was so LOUD that we had to practically shout across the table. Our kids sat at a separate table, but it was fine (party of 6). Our waiter disappeared and we had to flag someone else down to bring us our check. We were there for 2.5 hours!
This was our first visit. We were very thirsty and hungry. Terrance was great. He kept our drinks full and was very polite and personable. The food was also very good. We especially liked the bacon wrapped stuffed mushrooms. Another plus, was live music by a very talented singer.
Being that it was Spring Break in Waikiki, we were happy to get a table without having to wait more than 30 min to an hour. Hostess was very friendly and quick to help. Waitress was nice but communication with customers could use improvement. Responding to our ordering with "K" seems a bit unprofessional. Food was good but limited menu.
Took picky eater friends of ours and they loved it!! Good good place. Enjoy folks!
We went for brunch. Horrible Service. Food lacked flavor or creativity. The “potatoes” in the breakfast burrito were French fries. No such thing as hot tea, only have luke warm water. Our waitress was unfriendly and unapologetic of anything. Just terrible. You would be better off at Subway across the street.
We wanted to eat here but the manager refused to change the channel so we could watch golf. The restaurant was at 25% capacity so this should not have been an issue. Our server said he was on a run and then later too busy to change the channel on one tv. We finished our drinks thanked our server and welcomed at a neighboring pub.
Great food and good for families! We are there 3 times I. A 10 day trip. Easily accessible in Waikiki. The only downfall was wait staff was slow and at times inattentive.
Fun and great service!
Really enjoyed our meal at Giovanni Pastrami. Our server Jacoby suggested the deep fried cauliflower and everyone loved it as an appetizer. I had the Hawaiian Pizza with BBQ sauce and it was delicious. Then shared the huge brownie dessert with ice cream, whip cream and chocolate sauce. Fabulous!!!
The food was very tasty and we enjoyed the relaxed sports bar atmosphere. The staff were all very friendly and took great covid precautions. We were spaced very far away from others. We would have liked more pastrami options, however we understand that the menu was limited due to covid right now.
Great service and delicious food.
The menu has been drastically reduced due to covid. The food that is offered is still good, but the selection is very limited for a deli/bar.
Very nice experience. Open Table reservations work great! Food was very good and service excellent.
Great place to eat with great service!! The pasta was amazing.
Had reservations but still needed to wait for a table - then we were seated outside next to the speaker. Food was mediocre. Server was friendly.
