Giordanos Pizza Orlando LAKE BUENA VISTA

We are staying in a timeshare near LAKE BUENA VISTA. We decided to try out Giordanos and it turned out to be a fabulous choice. Our waiter was attentive and charming, pizza was delicious, and the blue cheese pear salad...oh so fresh! We had a very entertaining balloon artist make us Santa hats and we all left smiling and laughing. Highly recommend this off site restaurant!

I can't wait to try it this year. We have a restaurant.com certificate for the one in Kissimmee. I am so glad restaurant.com certificates do not have an expiration date. We didnt get around to going to Giordanos last year, so I intend to use it this year.

I friend of ours makes balloons at restaurants in Tampa. His preteen daughter now comes along and makes balloons too! It's such a fun thing to do. But you won't believe how many people do not tip them and do not realize that they do not work for the restaurant. I believe the restaurant gives them a small amount to show up, but they make their money from the tips. All ages get smiles from balloons!

I can't answer that but I will say we got a medium and it was too much for the 5 of my family and we are 2 adults and 3 teenage daughters. We had leftovers for a few days!! .

that sounds great, there are 4 of us,but my Dsis has 5, so sounds like 2 med. would be perfect!

The one on 192 would be closest to AKL. From AKL take a right on Sherberth Rd and follow it out to 192, take a right on 192 and Giordanos will be on your left a short way down.

BUT color me unimpressed. We ate there last month, we had a thin crust cheese pizza and it wasn't anything to write home about, the crust had that "frozen" taste to it and the sauce was blah! I've had better pizza from Pizza Hut in my opinion!

But to each their own.

I just posted on another topic about our trip a few days ago. They changed the menu and took off everything I liked. I don't eat pizza because I can't eat bread dough so I went for eggplant parm. It is not on the menu.
I had ravioli and it was the frozen kind and they cooked it aldente. I like my pasta cooked till mushy.

Their claim to fame is their stuffed pizza. I wouldn't order the thin crust from them. I can get a thin crust pizza anywhere.

Loved the stuffed pizza I ordered from them. Got a salad with it and had leftovers for two additional nights.

didn't want to start another thread so thought I'd ask here. Personally my restaraunt.com gift cert. says dine in only, which we enjoy, my question is can you call your order in and tell them you have the gift. cert. that we will be dining in,but just want to order so it is almost done when we get there??

Great question! If they will allow this, I would probably do it for our next trip .
