Had late lunch

It was very good, we were sat fast and it was extremely busy, pizza came fast and we had lots of extra for leftovers... Pizzas true test is how good it is reheated and it was amazing the next day!

My kids (4 & 6), husband and I had dinner here. We all shared a small deep dish pizza with sausage and fresh garlic and garlic cheese bread. The garlic on the pizza was delicious! The food was good, but we liked Lou Malnati's pizza better.

Husband wanted to share a favorite, but the crust was just not tasty(plain, not enough salt) and the toppings were too soggy on the Chicago style pizza. If you are 2-4 people, one small pizza, maybe enough. The slices are huge. I had two and was stuffed. I liked the house salad. May try it again at a different restaurant... More

Crazy, crazy busy for lunch during Saturday, but totally worth it. I love Giordano's and it has always been my favorite deep dish. This experience was as good as past experiences. Nice location as well and good service. Great sauce and cheese and when you get veggies, they never water down the pie. We also had a great salad that... More

This place has excellent pizza, but is hard to find--tucked in an alley (not facing the official street address.) In spite of this, it is jam-packed much of the time. They've worked out a system, where you check in at the desk and get menus. This secures your place in terms of the seating order.+ While you are moving up... More

My husband and I ate at the Pulaski location on the evening of our arrival in Chicago. We were impressed by the balanced flavor and textures of this pizza. We did like the crust at Lou Malnati's better, but I feel this was the best of the two overall (one day we can try other deep dish restaurants in Chicago... More

I love pizza... any pizza...all pizza. Giordano's in an excellent example of a deep dish pie. We ordered the classic pizza that included pepperoni, peppers and onions. Although the pizza took over 30 minutes the veggies were still al dente. This is a very filling pie. A small was more than my wife and I could finish. While I personally... More

If you are visiting Chicago, you must eat at Giordano's, although once a visit is enough. The deep dish pizza is excellent!

Love the deep dish pizza. My family and I are repeat customers to Giordano's and glad to be. Give yourself plenty of time for your meal as they will tell you it takes about 45 min for your pizza to be ready after you order. We order entree house salad and garlic bread while we wait, however, don't fill up... More

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
