Italian

Don Giovanni's is definitely an Italian restaurant appropriate to the Hell's Kitchen district. Widely regarded as the best brick oven pizza in the region, guests can enjoy homemade pizza cooked fresh to order with each and every visit. The choices don't stop with pizza, however, as Don Giovanni's also offers up a wide range of popular Italian dishes that are sure to please.

Don Giovanni's is popular as a dine in restaurant, making it a great spot to take the entire family, but it also doubles as a fabulous take out location.

I used to love this place. Great neighborhood place. And the food used to be amazing. BUT I have been here twice in the last few months and it is now just a terrible tourist place. Portions are too small, food is just ok and the service is terrible. Just neglected by our waiter. (same waiter both times). I won't be back...too many choices in this incredible city to waste money on a less than average experience. TWICE in a row.

Had a wonderful dinner. Arrived just before 5:00 & got to chose a table outside. Shortly after outdoors was full. Drinks were good & appreciated Sunday happy hour prices. Had pasta special, eggplant Parmesan & chicken francese, all excellent. Only slight negative is that portions could have been a tad more generous. Service was prompt and pleasant. All three of us enjoyed the experience.

I like the food a lot. The size of the salads are too small for the prices that they charge! A small house salad was $9.95 and it was very skimpy. I have a problem with that! The salad prices were way too expensive! The pizza is delicious. None of the portions are huge.

For all the italians that I hope will read this feedback, stay away from this pizza. Nothing to do with the “traditional napolitan pizza” they say to make. But if you want to eat a typical american pizza, here you are, this restaurant is perfect for you.

Ate here on a Friday night over Memorial Day Weekend. Food was tasty but soup and pizza were room temperature and definitely did not seem freshly made or hot. Very disappointing as previous meal here was excellent.

We were a few minutes late because of traffic and management had no problem working with us. We were seated at a nice table and our waiter was prompt in bringing water and taking our drink order. Bread was brought as soon as it came out of the oven and was really good. Our meals also arrived in good time and were very good. They were of nice proportions so we could eat them all without feeling the need to take leftovers with us to our show. Service was very good as was the food. A nice find close to the theater district and certainly was full until show time. The staff seemed to realize most of the patrons were going to the theaters. No rushing just efficient.

Went there with family due to the walking proximity of the theatre (we saw a play afterwards)... Was pleased with my plate (rigatoni), wait service, and ambiance. Would recommend (with reservation) and will return on my next visit to New York.

The team at Don Giovanni's is great—they handle all special requests with grace and accommodate customer needs very efficiently. My friend and I had to eat quickly in order to get to the theater on time, and the staff made sure that we never felt rushed. Everything was handled so well that we were able to relax and enjoy our meal even with limited time. In addition to the excellent service, the food is wonderful, with lots of options for vegetarians. I look forward to returning and trying everything on the menu.

We have eaten at this restaurant many many times. This time I thought that maybe the restaurant had changed hands!! The food has always been wonderful!! Our dinners on this evening were very poor! My eggplant was served-quite hot on the top and partially frozen in the middle! I sent it back and the waitress said that I was getting a new one. The second one was exactly the same-frozen!! My husband and son also ordered two different pasta dinners and they were very disappointed!! They were nothing like our many other meals at Don Giovanni’s! I questioned the possibility of a new owner and or chef and I was told all the same. Too bad-I have always enjoyed this restaurant!! We may come back to see if it was just a bad evening in the kitchen but it will be awhile until we return!! I have never written a review like this before but I was so upset-I have always loved dining here!! I sincerely hope that the manager/staff will read this and hopefully correct whatever the problems are!!

I always love the food at Don Giovannis’. I usually drink A certain wine & they were out of it. The waiter suggested another brand & gave me sample ! It was excellent. Everything about this place is wonderful. It was the old Improv which was there in that very spot when I first moved into the neighborhood. So it feels like home. But doubly so because of the waitstaff! ♥️
