The food was wonderful, as usual. The stuffed pizza was amazing and extremely filling. Our party of 7 shared a large and a family size salad and were stuffed. Our waitress was very helpful and considerate. The outside seating was great!

We came in about 2pm on a Tuesday. We were seated quickly. This is not a quick place to eat, unless you order a lunch special. If you order a whole pizza it takes 45-50 minutes to cook. Worth the wait. Very good pizza. Nice outdoor eating area and the weather was great! Great service!

A 30 minute wait to even put in your name at 8 pm on a Sunday night? Seemed very odd that there were plenty of seats but such a back up... I love pizza and was looking forward to trying this place but concluded that the service must be horrible or very mismanaged to create such a mess. Not for... More

This place is always packed but it's worth the wait. Just order a glass of wine while your table is ready. Must go and enjoy the great food. They have a good selection of Italian dishes and thin crust pizza if you don't like deep dish. Deep dish is full of ingredients not dough. Share and enjoy

We went a Tuesday night for famous dip dish pizza and even though the place was not packed they made us wait around 15 min for a table. Table was messy and dirty and even though we asked the waiter to please clean it or ait us at a different table, he answered rudely and we ended up cleaning it... More

I prefer thin, crispy crusts with my pizza so I was skeptical. I am now a believer in "upside down" pizza. The wait -35 minutes- was long (we were tired) but the ability to order your pizza so it cooks while you wait is amazing! Once we were seated we waited 10 minutes before cheesy goodness arrived. Make sure to... More

During our recent trip to Chicago we decided to sample some of the top rated pizza spots. See my other reviews of Lou Malnati's and Pizzeria Due. Giordano's was definitely the best. Their crust is both very crispy, but also stuffed with cheese. The sauce had lots of tomatoes and the meats were excellent in both quantity and quality. There... More

LOVED the pizza here! First time to Chicago, and I wanted to try deep dish pizza. Asked many people, and it seemed that it was between Uno's and Giordano's. The Giordano's proponents seemed more passionate about their choice, so we tried theirs. We were not disappointed! A bit of a wait (seemed that all Giordano's had a line - which... More

I'm never disappointed when I eat here! Expect to wait to be seated plus another hour for your pizza, but it's worth the wait!

Highly recommend!!! We visited as a group of 4 teens & 3 adults. We all loved the crisp crust & just the right amount of all ingredients. Sauce was amazing!! We were so happy we returned on our last day for 3 pies to go and took them back to Indianapolis with us (from another location, not as good). There... More
