Busy place with great pizza

Bring a big appetite for pizza. The pizza is terrific and there is a lot of it. Because Giordano’s is a Chicago classic, it is crowded. When you put your name in for a table you are asked to order you pizza since it takes at least 30 minutes or longer to prepare it. Because Giordano’s is so... read more

Our family cannot imagine visiting Chicago without at least one meal at Giordano's. The classic Chicago Deep Dish Pizza originated in Torino in Italy as the Easter Pie. It takes about 45 minutes to bake, so be prepared for a wait. As far as our family is concerned, the wait is worth it. Do not get into an argument about... More

My husband and I ate here on our last night in Chicago. It's in a great location near Michigan Ave and the park. The food was fantastic and reasonable as well. Service was a little on the slow side- but they do warn you about your deep dish taking 45 minutes so we were fine with that. If you want... More

Order in advance! Knowing they're always busy, we called for delivery to our downtown hotel and were told it would be 2+ hours. Pizza is amazing... a small feeds a family of 2 adults and 2 little kids. Great value and a fun dinner for the family. And the pizza is really, really good.

When you go to Chicago you must get a Giordano's stuffed crust pizza. 🍕The first thing the waitress will tell you it takes 40 minutes. Believe me, it's worth the wait. Order a pitcher of beer and your life is perfect. The beer was COLD COLD. Since your in the 312 choose that as your beer. You will not be... More

Giordano's pizza was very good but I wouldn't say it was worth the hour and a half wait or the cost. This is definitely a place tourists frequent and it gets a bit crowded! There was very little room to move. To get the deep dish pizza they ask that you give them at least 45 minutes to cook it... More

Amazing pizza! We go there every time we are in town. We loved the mozzarella cheese appetizer. My wife has started asking if they ship that too. We will be back every visit! Long wait on a Friday night, but that was expected and worth it.

Best deep dish pizza ever! Perfect crust, tons of cheese, the pizza was everything a deep-dish pizza should be and more. The pizza took awhile to come out, but the wait was worth it. Be prepared to wait, to be seated and for the pizza to arrive, but expect to be served the best deep dish in Chicago!

We stopped for lunch at the Navy Pier location. We chose to sit outside, but had to request a table in the shade. The hostess was going to put us smack in the middle of the patio at a table with no umbrella when there were several tables with umbrellas and shade. Our server seemed pretty bored having to be...

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.
