Ordered online this time. Food arrived fairly quickly and it was exactly what I ordered. Pork chip dinner had 3 pork chip cutlets and crisp onion rings as well as small salad. And I love their "everything" pizza

Nice local pizza shop in the heart of Windsor. The sausage pizza was delicious with an excellent crust.

Clearly the person answering the phone and taking orders needs to ensure the order is correct. Disappointed I didn't get the correct order! I ordered eggplant parmigiana and got chicken parmigiana! Not the driver's fault. The food arrived hot and salad was correct but there is a big difference to a vegetarian unless the chicken was a "mock" chicken. The... More

Nice bar to belly up to. The Greek salad was very good. The draft beer selection was okay. The prices are good. Very clean bar and restroom. Found a pool table in the back. Sweet. Friendly and attentive barkeep.

Very local, nothing fancy, but if up for mingling with people it's a good time. Couple of TVs, juke box, booth seating or local bar. I tried the Chicken Marsala with no expectations.....it came with a side salad that was great quality, served fresh and cold.....and the Chicken Marsala was good! Pasta was cooked just right, chicken and mushrooms fresh.... More

They seem to do a lot more take out than sit down. We were the only people eating there at 6:00 P.M. on a Tuesday night. My wife enjoyed a Greek salad with grilled chicken. I took a chance on shrimp scampi. It was served with a pedestrian garden salad and pretty good garlic bread. The linguini was cooked properly,... More

We have as a group met here in the past. I really enjoy their pizza. We kinda overcrowded the place but they made us feel at home.

This place used to be good a decade ago but unfortunately the food here is not that good. Very average food and there is a bar portion of the restaurant where most of the local drunks can be seen hanging out in front smoking cigarettes. Inside the noise from the bar area reaches into the dining area and if you... More

We had a gift certificate we had won at an auction, so we went here despite it being a bit out of the way for us. The pizza was good - nothing really special. The BBQ pizza was certainly not the best I've had. The service was friendly and prompt. If we were local to Giovanni's, we would probably go... More

We love the meatball grinders and generally get them as take-out. The restaurant seating is comfortable but rather dark and not very crowded. The food is reasonably priced and well prepared.
