On this week's episode of Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine and his crew are in Sylacauga, Alabama to makeover Giovanni's Italian Restaurant. Giovanni's Italian Restaurant is owned by Chrissy who is struggling to keep the family restaurant open after the sudden death of her sister.  The restaurant is outdated and Robert Irvine will need to help Chrissy rediscover her passion to help turn the Giovanni's around.



As I normally do with Restaurant: Impossible episodes, I searched around the Internet to read stories, comments and reviews about Giovanni's Italian Restaurant to get an idea of how the restaurant is doing since Robert Irvine visited, and here is what I found (note - all reviews are post Restaurant: Impossible):

Moondoggy's Pizza & Pub - Restaurant Impossible Update

On this week's episode of Restaurant: Impossible, Robert Irvine and his crew are in Brunswick, Georgia to makeover Moondoggy's Pizza & Pub.  Moondoggy's Pizza is owned by two best friends, Renesha and Brandy, who have no idea how to run their restaurant.  Renesha feels disrespected by staff and customers while Brandy is failing to be a leader and communicate.  This is putting the restaurant deeper in debt and in danger of closing.  Robert will need to teach them the basics of running a restaurant and how to build better culture among the staff.
