    Love this place. Honestly one of my top 5 GF restaurants. They have so many options to choose from. My personal favorite is their meatballs and the GF garlic bread!!

    My gluten-free seven year old was exstatic to get GF garlic bread. She never gets to eat the bread or rolls when we eat out! The pizza and salads were good and the waitress was super nice! Great family pizza place!

    Tons of GF options. After saying hello, first question asked was if anyone had gluten allergy-so nice for me not to have to ask! Menu clearly marked. Brought me separate oil for the most amazing GF garlic bread EVER. bought two loaves to take home. GF pasta very good! Friendly service!!

    I have Celiac disease and stopped here while on vacation. I had their GF pizza. lots of GF options and great care was taken to avoid CC. Pizza was fabulous and they brought out complimentary GF garlic toast which was so good I was afraid it was regular, so I had my friend test to see if it was the same as hers. I usually react to even small CC within an hour but had no issues.

    I was happy to have found Giovanni's. My husband, two kids and I all really enjoyed our meal. Our waitress really worked with us (she was happy to research stuff for me), as I have more than just gluten issues. We all left feeling very happy. Their after dinner chocolate was amazing. I waked in thinking hmmm... I walked out thinking yay.

    Amazing gluten free selections - pizza, hoagies AND pasta! Their GF pizza is the best I've had so far. If you dine in, they bring you GF garlic bread and separate dipping oil. :-).

    I've only tried the gluten-free pizza so far, but it was great! I didn't have any problems with it. It is a thin crust, but I prefer that anyway. I work downtown and needed delivery, and although they don't deliver that far away, the woman that took my order offered to have a special delivery made for me because I needed gluten-free and the downtown location doesn't cater to that. Very impressed. She was very knowledgable, and when I asked about the fries she knew right away that they wouldn't work for me because they only have one fryer.

    Pasta is much better than the pizza. Good flavors but super thin pizza

    Best GFREE pizza I've had to date. My husband says it's the freshest hoagie ever. He also got the fries and they are hand cut. They brought me GFREE bread to dip and the service was very friendly. Will go back soon and I plan to become a regular patron

    I think the owner is paying people for a good reviews because we didn't think the pizza was that great my wife does not have celiacs but eat the gluten free pizza with me that made her sick.

    Read the other reviews and have to agree! Couldn't decide what to try first! the gluten-free garlic bread was such a treat with awesome dipping sauce. The spinach feta gluten-free pizza was delicious, & pasta with special Alfredo sauce made for us right then was delicious, they had a gf beer too. no symptoms of illness. Waiter very friendly and helpful. Basic pizza place ambience, nothing fancy, but so yummy! Wish I lived in town!

    Yummy! The food here is so good. Lots of gluten free choices. This has become our new favorite restaurant. The guy who brought out my hubby's pizza came back out with a second pizza about ten minutes after the first because he (the server) didn't think it looked good enough. Meanwhile it was delicious. I know he is more than a server, I would guess he is one of the owners or managers. But I have never seen a restaurant that cared so much about their food. I will be a regular patron here. They are amazing.

    We were thrilled to try this place because of reviews here, but we didn't get a chance to try anything because they could not provide a dairy free option for any of their pastas. They seemed uninformed that half of Celiacs have a dairy allergy too. Their GF offerings would be that much more successful if they could accommodate.

    THIS PLACE WAS SPECTACULAR! My mother is celiac and never gets to enjoy a nice dinner out. The gluten free bread, pizza, and pasta dishes were out of this world!!! She also went home with a box of amazing chocolates. The only thing that could have been better than the food was our waitress. So sweet, so attentive and careful with the gluten free.

    What a nightmare! We waited almost an hour for our food and when they brought it out, they brought it out one dish at a time. I received my gluten free pizza 20 minutes before the next dish arrived at our table. The remaining dishes came out about 5 minutes apart and my husband had to ask 5 times for the side of non-gluten-free pasta that came with his chicken dish. After all the waiting and frustration, the GF pasta was delicious and the. GF pizza was ok.
