My girlfriend and I were looking for some basic Italian food, nothing fancy, pizzeria-style pasta would have been fine, we were so hungry. We walked by Don Giovanni's on 10th Avenue between 22nd & 23rd, whose outdoor cafe was full , but

Pros: Better Italian than places twice the price!

Cons: 10th Ave location not as busy as other avenues

Great affordable restaurant in the theater district. Plenty of options, varied menu. Recommend the Chicken Marsala, and Chicken Francese, the Country style Rigatoni, lasagna verde. We went before the dinner rush and had very attentive service.

I am blown away by how bad this place is. sat down and noticed silverware was dirty and had crud in it. gross start and im afraid it didnt get better when the pizza got there. now pizza is a subjective thing so maybe someone likes this

i have lived in ny my whole life and i have to say that this pizza is one of the worst pizza i have ever had in my life. and i wishthat was the worst part of the deal but the people that work there are even WORSE! went in and got a table for 5. now this was the only good part of the evening: we sat down right away (i guess it could have had something to do with us being the only people in there). things got bad when 15 minutes go by and noone came to the table. not for bread, water, food ,,nothing. finally we placed our order with a lady who must have been a moonlighting neurochemist because her attitude was clear, she didnt want to be there, she thought she was too good to take our order. now the clocks starts again. keep in mind we are the ONLY tabel in the place. after a grueling and uncomfortable 40 minutes we got what these guys call pizza with one problem... our pepperoni turned into a sausage pie. not wanting to take our chances with another hour long ordeal we just ate what we could. the pizza reminds me of the frozen stuff u ate when u were a kid. it was an all around horrible experience and i will never return. i think as this neighborhood gets more and more developed, dinasaur places like this will go out of business and say good to that, let a nice restaurant take its place and serve this wonderful community better.

Pros: they have heat in the restaurant

Cons: everything else!

My husband and I frequent both Don Giovannis in Manhattan, the 44th Street location and 10th Avenue & 23rd. The pizza specials are so good (check out the chalk board above the bar) that I requested my husband take me there for our 5 Year Anniversary - I'm a cheap date, I know!

We always order the special pizza with Feta Cheese, Onions, garlic and Crushed red pepper. It is too die for and puts Patsy's specialty pizzas (also good) to shame!

Also, the eggplant parmigiana - out of this world. We have never had a bad meal - and it's very, very inexpensive.

If you are looking for ambience and quality service, you don't go to a Pizza restaurant, ok? (Note sure what some reviewers are thinking!) But if you are looking for great pastas and pizzas and great price - this is it!

Pros: Pizza, Pasta, Italian Food

Cons: Ambience

I ordered food in 2 opportunities and will not order again. The man who picks up the phone is rude and has a terrible attitude. The food arrived all messed up, pizza topping all over the box and dessert (tiramisu) melt and warm! It took them 45 minutes to get to my place on a weekday and I am only 2 blocks away from them. On the menu says "Free delivery (Minimun order $10) but I was charged a couple of dollars on both opportunities. Pizza is average and certainly not worth it the hassle.

Pros: none

Cons: mediocre, rude people, inefficient delivery

I dine out several times a week, and have a good experience 95% of the time. I took my mother out for mothers day, but did not like the gummy chicken marsala. A nice waiter (not ours) came over and noticed I was not eating it, asked why - I said it was not very good. He offered to let me order something else, then notified my rude miserable waiter...who then said to pick another dish and took plate away. The manager came over and rudely said I could not order another dish, creating a scene in the restaurant. The rude waiter and manager turned the situation around like I was trying to get a free meal, after 2 of them offered to replace itl! I will never go back

I'm not usually one to complain - at least I try to find something positive in every place. But this was a place I couldn't wait to leave. They have a big sign outside saying "Serving brunch NOW, 12-3 p.m.", but didn't bring us a brunch menu until we asked for it. I ordered an omlet with tomato, mozzarella and mushrooms. They bring me a pizza. I say I ordered an omlet, and they argue with me. In the end, they bring me an omlet with tomato and mozzarella without mushrooms. Not a word of apology. Then they have the nerve to charge me the $1 extra for mushrooms I didn't even get. At that point I just wanted to leave. Will NEVER go back! But the coffee was good.

I don't know who that person is that said it's an insult to italians, but the food tastes as close to my italian mom and grandmother's cooking than any other italian restaurant i've been to. The prices are decent and the food is excellent. Service depends on the time you go, but usually we are seated promptly and taken care of very well, and i've been here numerous times because it's a very enjoyable experience.

Incredible food and variety. Service with no pretensions or attitude. But they can make you wait for an hour though. You have to be patient when going there.
