                              The food was great and reasonably priced. The service was excellent. However, the place is really a sports bar (extremely noisy) and not a restaurant. Maybe we failed to realize this when we read about the place. If so, the fault lies with us. If it were me, I would get rid of the televisions or get rid of the live singer. The place is too busy with both.

                              Food was average, chicken was under cooked. One benefit if your hungry the food does come out fast.

                              Really good food. Service was great. Had a duo playing live music who were really good. With the high prices in and around Waikiki, this place was a refreshing change.

                              Service was good, music was good Good location Goor was terrible Linguini with chicken was dry and tasteless. I’ve had better from a Bertoli bag from freezer section of Safeway. Pizza (medium) was $25! Advertised as NY style pizza, delivered in a Roman Pizza box (thing Little Caesar) actually, the pizza pizza guy is much better in magnitudes of 10. Dinner for two at a over rated sub shop with one glass of wine was $100 with tip! Really??? Save your time & money…got to Pizza Hut Cheaper, and a hell Of a lot better value and taste

                              This is a sports bar, but the food and service are much better than most. The only problem is that they are still serving an abbreviated menu because of Covid, while they online menu still depicts the full non-Covid menu from a couple of years ago. The current menu still has a few deli sandwiches but is largely made up of pizza. Given that limitation, the food and service were very good and we will be back.

                              We've ordered pizza and wings from them before and they were great. This time it was awful. Wings were utterly flavorless. The Reuben had terrible proportions is pastrami to sauerkraut (weird for place called Giovanni PASTRAMI). And the servers seemed annoyed every second, even tho we asked for their attention barely at all. And instead of playing the big game, they showed an endless loop of charity commercials. Not going back.

                              A chaotic & not very enjoyable experience. The waitress was rather overwhelmed & not entirely in control. My husband’s first beer was off. Main course was brought out before our starters. The WORST bit however was when the vegetarian member of our group found meat in his salad. When we complained the waitress said it wasn’t her fault she didn’t make the salad…
