About Us

A part of the Hanover Community since 2010

Giovanni’s Pizza is owned and operated by Giovanni Farone, who was raised in Sicily and brought his family’s old world recipes to Hanover PA. Giovanni came to Pennsylvania in 2000 to carve out a better future for himself.



He went to work for family members, who had already made their home in York County. In 2010, he realized his dream of opening his own restaurant, and Giovanni’s Pizza was introduced to the Hanover area.

Everything is always homemade at Giovanni’s as the fresh taste of authentic Italian cooking is evident in every dish. Giovanni is confident in his cooking and also cares a great deal about his customers. That is why there is a tremendous amount of care put into every aspect of service at Giovanni’s Pizza.

Giovanni is also a permanent fixture at the restaurant and can be found there daily, cooking, managing and overseeing the operation to ensure an excellent overall customer experience

It is important to love what you do

“I like everything about it,” Giovanni said. “Sometimes running the business can be stressful, but I put in a lot of hours to make sure everything is always done right. You have to work hard for what you want and nothing is easy. I am always here at Giovanni’s and I care about all the food we put out. I take care of the customers like family.”
