Pizza had no flavor, service was awful and tooo pricey.
I used to like this place, the pizza used to be delicious but I just recently had lunch there & orderded a pizza and a very expensive hard crust, tastless calzone. On top of my no flavored items I ordered the young girls working the counter had no customer service skills and were not friendly. I may give them another shot since the food used to be good, maybe I got em' on a bad day.
Wake up call to the owners!.... you really need to talk to your employee's about their customer service skills, they need to be taught manners and how to better prepare food. Remember they are representing your establishment.

This is the best pizza in town - great place! I have tried tons of so called pizza places in Sacramento and none of them compare to Giovannis. Finally there is REAL NEW YORK PIZZA around! I know, as I am from Boston. The crust is unbeatable - incredible sauce and cheese. GREAT BEER TOO! As far as pizza and a beer goes, it doesn't get much better than Giovannis...

I used to love their pizza since it was the only thin crust NY style I could find in Sac. But now the elation has worn off...and I've realized that only the the plain cheese is any good as the ones with the toppings tend to be very GREASY. The dining area seems to cater to little leagues and soccer teams. It's one cavernous warehouse like space devoid of any ambiance, save that of an warehouse. Also the service can be friendlier. I Am giving you my money.

And A LOT of it for the amount of pizza. Overall I cannot justify the cash for the product so I have moved on.

This place reminds me of a run down Chuck E Cheese. It has a weird smell when you walk in. The pizza was greasy and nothing special. They did, however, have a great Italian dressing for the salad. Cheap if you need to fill your stomach but not a place that I would return to.

Pros: cheap

Cons: not good food, run down atmosphere

.

I highly recommend it. This is pizza like you find in Italy. Okay, the ambiance is a little sketchy, I admit it (big open room sort of reminds you of a cafeteria)...but the food makes up for it and the owners are the real deal.

Now u don't have to fly all the way to NYC to experience authentic italian style pizza! For Sac residents, just jump into your car and zip over to one of Giovanni's pizza spots.
What makes the pizza so scrumptious? For starters, the home-made dough is light and airy which translates into a crust that is both soft, chewy and has that slight resistance. The cheese is simple mozzerella, and not the cheap kind that can leave your pizza "wet and soggy". It melts beautifully and is a terrrific complement to the zesty tomatoe sauce. Flavored with fresh garlic, olive oil and spices, it's enough to bring anyone to their knees!
Whichever pizza YOU choose, your tummy and your family/friends will thank you! For those over 21, round outyour meal with a glass of Giovanni's own premium beers. It's a winning combo!

IKNOWPIZZA is probably the owner of Anthony Andrews. When he wrote his reviews I believe he was actually critiquing his own pizza joint when he said...

"Sorry but I use to own a Pizzeria in town (Bad Location) and "litterally" every customer who said they tried it about 8 people I personally knew; said it isn't worth the cracker crust it's made on."

Sounds more like Anthony Andrews pizza then Giovanni's. Changing your name from First Class Pizza to Anthony Andrews doesn't change the crappy pizza that you used to serve.

Don't hate because there's someone who really knows how to make a genuine pizza. I've taken my family to Giovanni's in Natomas serveral times and loved it!

Oh yeah... the comment about the fish bowl... everything looks like a fish bowl when you wear "coke bottle" glasses. It's also why you probably couldn't see the toppings on the pizza.

Giovanni's Pizzeria is the best pizza that Sac.town has. They are a real traditional family style pizza place. I think that I KNOW PIZZA is really Anthony Andrews and that they couldnt take being replaced with a real pizza place! I have been to all of their locations except the Natomas one, they do an amazing job at all. Natomas, I will see you for a great pizza the next time that I go to Arco. Mr. Giovanni, don't let these untrue statements get you down, you will always be the king of pizza, because I really do know about pizza. I spent time in Italy, New York, Boston and Chicago, pizza was all that I could afford.

Words can not explain how freaking awesome this pizza is. If you are tired of the same commercially-owned pizza companies, you'd better head down to this place. Now I'm not from New York so and I've never had pizza in New York, but this is the best pizza I have ever tasted. It's hard to describe a great pizza's flavors, but this place somehow makes the best non-New York based New York pizza ever!

I didn't grow up on the East Coast-so I can't comment on authenticity. But I can tell you that all of the elements come together here to create a perfect pie. Crispy yet tender crust with amazing flavor, a solid sauce, good toppings. all baked to bubbly golden brown perfection. This Chicago girl actually finds herself respecting NYC pie!

Pros: tender & crisp crust, reasonable price, quick service

Cons: strip-mall ambience

While the ambience could have been better, a little dark and could have been vacuumed better, my first pie was like being back in the NY/NJ/PA metropolotan area where I grew up. Hot, thin crust pizza that dripped with just the right amount of delicious olive oil, sauce and cheese that had my eyes closing dreaming of my youth. Each bite got better and better as the crust softened as it cooled. It was hard not to stuff it all in to get to the perfectly bubbled rim crust.

John knows his stuff and his staff and the manager of this location knew how to treat a back east boy and his family. My 2 year old had 2 slices himself! Even at this age he knows a great pie. I have to limit myself to once a month but this pie could be eaten every day.

I'm from the Northeast US and my family is as Italian-American as they come. My wife and I moved to Sacramento for a year and we stumbled across Giovanni's Pizza.

Excellent rustic thin crust pizza, similar to the pizza in Napoli, in a no nonsense atmosphere. Italian soccer flags hanging, Italian beers. Nice people.
Highly recommend it if you're looking for a little piece of home.

Anyone who has been to Italy will recognize that this pizza is the closest to the real thing anywhere in Sacramento. All fresh toppings, homemade sausage, imported extra virgin olive oil.
Excellent thin crust.

My wife and her parents are from NY and this is by far their favorite pizza in Sacramento and say it's pretty darn close to NY pizza, paper thin crust and all (personally, I think it's better)

The Little Italy and Coney Island are our favorites

If you have ever eaten pizza in Italy or at least in New York, this is the closest thing you will find to that experience. It is always freshly made to order with fresh vegetables and toppings, homemade sauce and sausages, and the best estra virgin oliv oil. Try the basic and work from there.
