I like Giovanni Pastrami mainly because they serve Round Table Pizza which I think is the best pizza you can find in Waikiki.  Other than the pizza, Giovanni Pastrami serves up huge breakfast, lunch and dinner menus filled with everything you can imagine in a Deli/Sports Bar.  The restaurant features dozens of flat screen tv's playing everything sports.  On this visit College Basketball, Nascar and Golf were showing on the screens.  The restaurant has two levels with the upper level being the Sports Bar.  There is a large bar in the middle with tables and booths all around.  Every seat in the house has a view of a flatscreen or two, or three.  Service was pretty good on this visit with the waitress approaching our table quickly and taking our drink order within seconds of sitting down.  My daughter saw the picture of Reuben Sandwiches and immediately said she wanted a Reuben.  She ordered the Reuben Bites ($15) with Pastrami.  These little mini sandwiches include your choice of Pastrami, Corned Beef or Turkey Breast and include Swiss Cheese, Sauerkraut and Russian Dressing on toasted Rye Bread.  My Daughter loved the sandwich and the French Fries.  The Fries were crispy and very good.  I tried the Reuben Bites and thought they were delicious.  I too loved the French Fries.  I ordered the Chelsea's Treat ($17) with Cole Slaw.  Hot Corned Beef, Pastrami, Swiss Cheese, Tomato and Russian Dressing.  I liked the flavor of the meat but could not really taste the Swiss Cheese, Tomato or Russian Dressing.  Just was not enough of these items in the sandwich to make the flavor pop.  For $17, I would expect something much better.  The worst part of the sandwich was the bread.  Thin and tasteless.  The bread tore apart as soon as I picked up the sandwich.  Added absolutely nothing to the sandwich and in fact made it worse.  I would still come back to Giovanni Pastrami for the Pizza and other items on the menu.  This is a decent place in Waikiki and I am sure the prices reflect the high rent they pay being in the Beach Walk area on Lewers Street.  Still think this is a great place to grab something to eat, drink a beer and watch some sporting events.

THE BEACH WALK DEVELOPMENT ON LEWERS STREET IS BEAUTIFUL AREA IN WAIKIKI
