Great deep-dish pizza.

We visited Chicago at a busy time, and showed up at this restaurant without a reservation, so had to wait close to an hour for a table. The staff are very good - they take your cell number and phone you when your table is ready. We ordered our food when we arrived at the restaurant, so got our... read more

It was awesome! Server was super friendly and enthusiastic. Pizza took 45 minutes to get after orderand the server told us a head of time. We had a great experience for lunch! Loved it. Pizza was a small to feed 2, we were more than full with one piece left over. So very good!

First time visit to Chicago - My friend whose daughter lives in Chicago recommended this restaurant. My husband and I spent the day walking and decided to stay in the area where our Wendell tour was taking place. I found Giordano's on trip advisor and decided to to there. Very enjoyable and reasonably priced. We are from San Francisco and... More

Hey, sitting outside on patio. Having a pitcher of beer with friends. Nice small breeze, WI gs waiting on pizza. It really doesn't get any better than this.

Short wait for a table on a Saturday evening. Not bad at all. System seems to work well. Classic menu. HUGE pizzas and Chicago deep pan pizza pies. Food exactly as you'd expect. Tasty not gourmet. Long wait for food. Service dismal. Cutlery, plates and wine arrived after starters. As my 6-year old was by this stage flagging with jet... More

Great pizza. I can have this deep dish everyday. The only thing is waiting for a table, minimum wait is about 30 to 45 minutes but when you get to seat and the pizza arrives you'll forget about the wait.

The deep dish pizza was delicious, however had an awkward system to order and be seated. We waited 60 minutes for our pizza, but the staff were extremely apologetic and gave us the pizza on the house. We also got two free pizzas to go. Mistakes happen!

This is my favorite spot for Chicago-style pizza. The pizzas are giant, stuffed with cheese, and absolutely delicious. I've found that the pizzas here are larger than at the other chains, so order accordingly. The Harvest Salad is incredibly delicious as well. It can get crowded here and pizzas can take up to an hour to prepare, so call ahead... More

Is it pizza? No it's not. Was it good? Yes it was......having said that I do not know how to evaluate such a mix of slow and poor service, not very clean table and chairs, and a so called pizza which is not bad but far away from a real pizza. Let's say "average" and that's all

We waited a really long time, but I think that's par for the course in Chicago. They had the Wisconsin game on the TV, and the pizza was delectable. Yes, that's right, I said 'delectable.'

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.
