Giovanni's is owned and operated by a genuine Italian family who have made El Paso their home! Great food and wonderful service.

Giovanni's Pizza is very picturesque and provides good service, food and local atmosphere. It was very busy when we were there and for good reason. The salads are tasty with good dressing choices and the pizza is better than the average large franchises produce. It is always fun to go to a local restaurant that survives because it does it's...

Joes Pizza and Marianas Dishes are excellent in value and taste. Love the pizza and the rest of the food on the menu. Have ate just about every item in the menu.

I grew up in El Paso, so I have had pizza from here many times. I personally enjoy greasier pizza, so I really like it here. If you want new age pizza, this place is not for you, but if you like classic New York style, it is really good.

We came into town from out of state to help move some family members. They had lived in the area for about a year, and knew Giovanni's well, so this is where they took us out for dinner. I love pizza, and I've had pizza from a lot of places, this by far one of the best pizzas i've ever... More

Joes has been around for a long time. He serves the best pizza plus other Itailian fairs on the menue. Also has beer, wine and mixed drinks if you so desire. Soft drinks, tea and water are also available.
