While going to the Burlington Coat Factory in Coral Springs the other day, I noticed that Giovanni’s opened up in the same plaza.  Apparently it has been there for a while, but since I seldom make it down those ways, I had no idea that they had another location even. The Giovanni’s Pizza I had in Boca Raton, although not a town favorite, had a deep dish pie that I liked. I didn’t like it because it was extraordinary, but liked it because it was different and a nice change of pace when I wanted to try some Chicago Style Pizza.

Since I was there with my family we ordered one slice, just for test purposes, and had it cut into fours before I could take a photo, so please excuse the way the slice looks here.  It shouldn’t be judged by the photo. I tried to make some idle chit chat with the pizza maker, but he didn’t seem to friendly, or want to discuss any relationship to the other Giovanni’s Pizza places around South Florida. A simple Google search of Giovanni’s Pizza Coral Springs, reveals three places nearby, and I just wanted to get an idea if they were related. I am still left wondering.

The slice came out insanely hot and crispy. The way the slice held up seemed promising, and for a second there, I thought I might be having an incredible slice. My dreams were quickly squashed when I bit into the slice. The crust is certainly the best part of the pie here, and hopefully all their pizzas come out this crispy, with the ability to hold up as well as this slice did. What I liked the least about this slice was the sauce. It was average at best. Not sure what ingredients they are using in the sauce here, but it could benefit from a bit of recipe altering. The cheese seemed ok, not the worst, but not the best.

Perhaps I should have just ordered a Deep Dish Pizza, but since I couldn’t get an answer if it was the same owners as the one in Boca Raton, I didn’t want to chance it. If it is the same owners, then I will definitely go back and try their Deep Dish Pizza to see how that rates.

I wouldn’t stay away from from Giovanni’s, but I am not going to go out of my way to get it again.

Giovanni’s Pizza gets 4 out of 8 slices.

    I tried Giovanni’s before. We ordered a whole pie and it was freshly prepared. It was a waste of pizza calories, average at best. Nothing tasted particularly good and the sauce…..I won’t be back. The restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday afternoon: just two other tables besides us. I guess people in the area also aren’t too fond of Giovanni’s.

    I had there Deep dish (stuffed) pizza last weekend. Never had it before, so i wanted to try it. It was ok, not worth it for the price ($19 for the smallest 10″ cheese). It was greasy, but it reheated well.
    Maybe the meat ones are good, but I can’t see myself spending $35 for a pizza.
    For what I spent on the small one, I coulda bought a whole rack of ribs elswhere

    Last night ordered a deep dish large pizza from this restaurant, sausage, pepperoni, mushroom, and asked to please cook a minute longer to crisp it up, you’d figure for over $30 with tip on delivery that it should have been like Wolfgang Puck had made it for you!  My first bite was of the crust which was remotely crispy, not a good sign of things to come…  asked for it unsliced, as recommended by the voice on the phone, it came sliced. 
    I reached for a slice, and as I lifted it, it was like a wet sponge, with slimy layer of grease between the bottom crust and already soaked pizza box.  It had as much staying power as my 92 year old grandfather without viagra.  It was utter mush with a back of the palate rancidness that rivald, well, I can’t think of anything that it rivald other than things I’ve never eaten.
    Do yourself a favor, if it’s delivery you’re after,… and you don’t have a car, it’s worth calling a cab, and going somewhere else.  Thank goodness it was on Amex…

    We drove from Lake Worth to Coral Springs for the “Chicago style” pizza. What a waste of time, gas and calories. It was so soggy and greasy. We had onion, pepperoni and sausage. Everything was so bland tasting. We ordered a large stuffed for two of us. We were going to take the leftovers home. We each barely had one full piece and we left the rest of the pizza behind. Paid over $50 plus tip. Never again!
