Reviews by the General Public

try 4 yourself
Reviewer: Tim from Santa Barbara, CA
The place is very clean. The pizza crust is very tough and the cheese is very sticky and wants to pull all off. The lettuce for the salad is all iceburg.

Reviewer: Detroit local from Santa Barbara, CA
Awesome salad! pizza was too chewy!

Favorite Pizza Joint
Reviewer: Tracy from Santa Barbara, CA
We come to Giovanni's probably 3 times/month and usually on a Friday night. The employees remember us and our order and we love that. We are pretty specific with our likings: extra sauce, extra cheese, extra crispy. My experience is that most restaurants ignore these requests, but Giovanni's gets it right every time. They also offer a thinner crust which we really like. Their ranch is some of the best too!

Twice a month!
Reviewer: Foodie Dan from Santa Barbara, CA
My family gets pizza and salads from this location at least twice a month. Last week I called in a "to go" order and when I arrived there were two people hand pressing dough into the pans.! We think this is the best pizza on the mesa!

Frozen dough, mediocre toppings
Reviewer: D C from Santa Barbara, CA
The pizza was obviously made from frozen dough - I have no idea how this place has such great reviews. If you're going to splurge on some carbs, do it somewhere else. The people are pleasant enough, but wow, the pizza was not better than a Hot-N-Ready...

Good Pizza
Reviewer: Cindy from Santa Barbara, CA
First time ordering Giovanni's pizza to go and found it to be MUCH better than their neighbor Mesa Pizza Co.

Best Restaurant Experience Ever!
Reviewer: Colleen from Santa Barbara, CA
My order is always made exactly to my liking. The atmosphere of this restaurant is very relaxed and comfortable. The friendliness of the employees was outstanding, a male employee with red hair went out of his way to make sure our party was taken care of to the fullest. I've had almost everything on the menu, and it's all worth every bite. If you are ever in town, or near the mesa, don't hesitate to stop by the best pizza restaurant in town!

A great pizza and wonderful service
Reviewer: Tonie from Santa Barbara, CA
I recently visited Giovanni's with my family and had a wonderful time. We ordered two pizza's and they were great. Try the sausage, onion, black pepper. Loaded with toppings. I will definately go back soon. The service was much better than previous visits. Keep up the great work!

Fantastic pizza, great atmosphere
Reviewer: Cregans from Ireland
First time in Giovanni's as we are on vacation from Ireland, loved the whole experience, fantastic pizza, great atmosphere, really friendly staff, we'll definitely be back.

The best meal around
Reviewer: Rob from Santa Barbara, CA
Due to finances, I rarely eat out nowadays. But I indulge myself at least once a week at Giovanni's on the Mesa. It really is the only restaurant that I go to on a regular basis. The pasta is great (especially with meatballs), the sandwiches are outstanding, the salads are delicious, and the service is phenominal. That's not to mention the out-of-this-world pizzas. My mouth is watering just thinking of my next Gio's visit. You order at the counter and sometimes (not usually) have to go to the counter to pick up your own food (esp if they're busy), but it's a pizza joint, not the Ritz. If you want to be "serviced" (sit down at the table and have someone wait on you), do NOT go to a pizza place.
