Don Giovanni has been serving delicious, affordable Italian cuisine in the Theater District for almost a quarter of a century. We are wholly a family affair, and our traditional Neapolitan restaurant boasts both a warm atmospheres and a lovely outdoor cafe. Pizzas are Don Giovanni’s specialty, with over twenty to choose from. Baked in our old fashioned coal fired brick oven, the dough is thin, crisp, and bursting with flavor. Fan favorites include our traditional Margherita Pizza, Quattro Formaggi, Pizza Pomodori, and White Clam Pizza. Don Giovanni has established itself as Time Square's best bargain and the premier place for delicious Italian cuisine. Don Giovanni Ristorante accepts orders online for pickup and delivery.
