Met expectations...

Stopped in for lunch - we were seated immediately. Service was great, pizza was delicious. Not the BEST deep dish I've ever had, but it satisfies the craving for authentic Chicago pizza. Didn't care for the ambiance of the restaurant... kinda felt like an Applebee's or something.

Was easily the heaviest pizza I've ever had. Truly a Chicago delicacy. Could have a bit more taste. I had the veggie pizza but it was just too cheesy, one could easily make 2 more pizzas with that much cheese. The price is on the higher side as a large veg pizza cost me $43!!! It was an amazing experience... More

ok, so as a jersey boy I am passionate about my NY & NJ style pizza. I have to say, regardless of what this is or is not in comparison with what I grew up with on every corner, this stuff is GOOD. There, I said it. I can't hate. It's different but it's damn good

Less than remarkable. Service was horrible, pizza was ok. Waited for more than 20 minutes for a deep dish pizza that was microwaved. Disappointing.

Deep dish and stuffed pizza that is worth the wait. Their crust is just the right texture and flavor to mix with the mouth watering sauces, abundant cheese, and your choice of other ingredients. Their thin crust pizzas are awesome for those who dont want Chicago Style, but why waste a trip. Try their other dishes, but you will come... More

Get ready to wait. Nearly 2 hours for a party of 3. Fortunately, there is a bar in the waiting area and 30 minutes before being seated, you can place your pizza order. The pizza is delicious, tasty, and worth the hype. Enjoy this landmark!!

Great service, friendly server. Couple other servers were getting into in front of everyone; which is wrong! But it was nice to sit outside we had a big group and enjoy some strong drinks and wonderful pizza!!

Coming from NY we definitely see Chicago pizza differently!! Once we accepted that it's not what we are used to , we would recommend Giordano's! 100%. It is very fresh , good sauce with a good crust!

We waited 1.5 hours on the crowded street to be seated. The pizza was delivered quickly however. The pizza was just OK nothing spectacular. Needed more flavor.

The 5 of us bought one small and one medium pie and still had 2 slices left over. Super delicious pizza, chicago-style with the sauce on top and layer after layer of yummy dough, cheese and toppings. Service was good. Only drawback is that the pizzas took 45-min HOWEVER it says it right on the menu that it takes that... More
