Has anyone been here? I always forget about this place when we go out!

Looks good.

    Yes, we've been 3 or 4 times. The pizzas are very good. All they serve are appetizers, salads & pizzas. There's only 1 size pizza, 6 slices & they're not exactly cheap, but very tasty. We had the diavolo pizza Saturday night & loved it.

      Been twice in the past month. The pizza is, by far, the best in the area. They have an interesting beer list, too. Wine list is adequate. They are not busy, which is too bad. It's worth the trip for the pizza.

      The service is not as attentive as it needs to be. The place is relatively small (and uncrowded), so I shouldn't have to flag down a server for another beer, or hot pepper, or water, or whatever. The servers do themselves a disservice by not asking if you want your beer or wine refilled.

        Sadly, it's been reported that Don Giovanni is closed or in the process of closing. It's a shame, because it took longer to get the place built than it lasted.

        Don Giovanni reopened about a month or so ago under new ownership. The pizza is actually better than under the original owners & they also sell slices & have a much larger menu than the previous owners.

          Just went there last Saturday, we had a ceasar salad, garlic knots and a grandma pie. All were excellent.

          My girls also shared a Mac & Cheese. I thought it was gross, a homemade version of kraft with a thin watery cheese sauce, but they couldn't eat it fast enough.
