Somewhere for visitors to enjoy Chicago pizza

This isn't fine dining unless you consider the pursuit of the finest pizza to be a worthwhile goal. The layout and furnishings here are spartan but functional, all of which serves to focus the mind on the food. Unlike European-style thin-crust pizza, these really are "pizza pies" (you can buy pies... read more

My very first Chicago Deep Dish pizza was had here. Arrived on a Saturday night, the line was long. We were told 1.5 hour wait and were handed menus to pre order our pizza as it takes about that long to make. We ordered our pizza, went to the bar, ordered some drinks and it was shortly after this we... More

The so called famous pizza is not worth the 2hours waiting time plus rudes employees. I do not recommend it....it is better for you to spend this time visiting things more interesting in Chicago

I love the deep dish pizza, can't have enough of it! It looks small but it is extremely rich, creamy, cheesy, and stuffy..a great deal!

"Yes," in a word. The atmosphere, culinary speciality and their signature drinks helped the time pass by. When you give your name to the host/hostess, they tell you it will take 45 minutes to an hour, to prepare your pizza. They provide you with a menu and will submit your pizza order to the kitchen before your table is ready... More

We wanted to experience deep dish pizza. The pizza was good, but not the best I have ever had. We were not forewarned that the pizzas take an hour to cook, but they took our order while we were waiting for a table so our wait was shorter once we were actually seated. Great service.

My husband and I tried Giordano's deep dish pizza based on recommendations from friends, as it was our first time visiting Chicago. We were not disappointed!!!! It was soooo delicious and yummy, and extremely filling! We just ordered a small cheese and we added chicken to it. It was more than enough for us! The waiter was very nice and... 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.
