We stopped by this food truck restaurant for lunch on a busy Saturday in Haleiwa. THIS RESTAURANT DOES NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS. It came highly recommended. There was a long line, but the staff worked through it efficiently. The staff was not particularly friendly, but...More

Dropped by Giovanni’s during our drive to North Shore. My parents and I were not disappointed! The line was unsurprisingly long, but the staff moved pretty fast and I did not wait too long. Definitely get the scampi!

I had the garlic shrimp-scampi. It was really yummy and I went early so I didnt have to wait in the long lines there can be.

Went on a friend's recommendation and weren't disappointed. Line moves quickly, classic garlic butter was delicious as was the spicy version. Large portions, super fresh and piping hot when it came out. Loved it!

If you like garlic flavored food then you will love the shrimp here. I've tried several restaurants that offer garlic shrimp and this is one of the best. It has a long line but it goes by quick and it is totally worth the wait....More

We toured the north shore and stopped at Giovanni’s truck in Kahuku for lunch after hearing so much about it. We had scampi and it didn’t disappoint. The line up was long but worth the wait.

Our first stop at a shrimp truck, peel and eat. Very good! Also checked out a fresh cut fruit stand located in same area, good fruit and they had apple banana lumpia, yum!

We had the garlic shrimp and the hot shrimp. Let me say first, I love garlic and usually WAY over garlic for most people, but for both, there was plenty of spice, but it seemed to be more of a sauce on top rather than...More
