I was very disappointed with my pastrami sandwich. It had so much fat and gristle that I couldn’t chew it. I am not used to ordering a sandwich and having to throw away a quarter to a third of it. Will not order a sandwich from this restaurant again.

I requested for a bigger table and a bigger seating area. It was nice to have space for all our food and not elbowing each other. Pastrami was delicious and pizza was delicious-half white sauce & half red sauce. We got the biggest pizza so will have extra for lunch next day.

Our server was nice. We split the spaghetti and meatballs and it was not very good. The soup was good. Our bill for 2 cups of soup and one entree of spaghetti and 1 cup of coffee and 1 iced tea was $47.00 which was really high. I was looking forward to dining there but was disappointed.

Went to dinner with a group of 9, picked the restaurant due to its location and varied menu since 3 in our party were picky children. The food was great, service even better. A great choice for a group!

The taste of the dishes was good, and the amount was satisfied.
And female clerks were beautiful and offered good service.
I also want to use it.

Turkey Rueben was great. Husband bbq salad was just average. They have quite a few TVs you can see from any table. I’d go back again

The only down fall to this experience was the 10 minute wait for a server to come to the table. They indicated the servers screwed up who was assigned to table.

We have been to Giovanni on previous visits and the food portions were massive and extremely tasty. This time it was that great and the Ruben’s have definitely been reduced in size.
Pasta was cluggy and chicken was dry

Atmosphere: is great still the same sports bar.
Upon arriving to Giovanni’s the night was extremely busy but we didn’t feel the love at the door

Restaurant was very loud when we went for dinner I reserved aable for 11 as we were on holidays with family and decided to get together for a rare supper. They split us up in two separate tables so we couldn't visit. I had a salad with chicken -it was raw. No one even offered to not charge me or replace it-I had to tell them I not paying for it. Not impressed

An unexpected Italian / deli experience in a very touristy area. Pastrami on rye was done correctly with a little fatty pastrami (required for taste and moisture) on white rye with yellow mustard and a pickle. Pasta looked pretty good! Prices a little high, but hey, this is in Waikiki. Service was great.

We have been dining here since they opened. We love their pastrami reubins. They are big enough to share.
This visit the fries were not up to their normal standards. They were overcooked and had lots of small end pieces.
