Anyone know if Giovanni's pizza in West Seattle still around? Still good?

Anyone know if Giovanni's pizza in West Seattle still around? Still good? I heard this is the best thin-crust, most NYC style pizza in town. Thoughts? When I googled it, only found University district location and it says it's closed!

  1. Haven't heard about it. Where in W Sea was it?

    1. Correction? Could be Giannoni's in Westwood Village shopping center. Anyone been?

        Giannoni's is still around, and they make probably the most authentic New York slice I've eaten in Seattle. There's a review up on Slice if you want to read my take on it.

          If you mean Giannoni's, it is pretty much on the money for a NYC slice - but I still prefer Flying Squirrel for their better quality ingredients (and the fact they serve beer.)

          1. re: terrier

            Flying Squirrel does make a better pizza, yes, although it's not as authentically NY-style as Giannoni's (if anyone really cares).

              Transplanted New Yorker's care!

              Gianonni's(in Westwood Village) is THE closest you'll come to true
              NY pizza.The owner & wife are NY transplants too.

                Actually, I'm pretty sure they're California transplants. No matter, the pizza's authentic NY.

                  Actually,I do believe Quentin's wife Donna is from NY and thought he was also?

                    Interesting. I interviewed Donna for Serious Eats and she said they were from California. That said, she could have just neglected to mention that they had come from NY before California. *shrug*
