Great Value....Traditional Italian

We stopped into Giordano's Restaurant on Martha's Vineyard for a late lunch/early dinner and were very happy with our choice. Giordano's is a very traditional Italian restaurant and what you would expect it to be is exactly what it is. This is not trendy, inventive food but there is a good reason... read more

The lump crab roll was amazing, something different after all of the lobster options. Great drinks too, try the Beach House!

On what has to be one of their busiest nights of the year, Illumination Night, our pasta meals were delicious and served in a very reasonably amount of time. I couldn't believe it. Would definitely go back.

Food was great, but the place is noisy, but very good for families. Love the fact that it is on it's 5th generation (I think it is) of operation. A lot of food, way more than we could eat. Next time would consider sharing an entrée and we could still have leftovers.

The pizza was good. Being from Jersey and spoiled with the best pizza in the country, this place has average "tomato pie." It's not a bad place for a quick lunch but if you're looking for traditional Italian food, you're better off looking off the island.

I eat Italian food on Staten Island... so it's really hard to eat Italian anywhere else. The service was good and my friends enjoyed their meals... I had the spaghetti & meatballs... it was okay, not the best. Seems like the shrimp parmesan and the clam sauce was the way to go.

My girlfriend and I could have eaten here every night . First night I ordered the Fried whole belly clams, which are my favorite when in New England. Best I've ever had. My girlfriend ordered fried shrimp which were equally as good. Both were dropped to order, hot and fresh. Stopped by later that evening for a pizza slice that... More

This place is a staple in oak bluffs offering both a take out a window and sit down dining. The food is good and it has a very family friendly atmosphere. We eat here everytime we visit the island!!

Pizza's are absolutely enormous, as are the pasta dishes. No stand out dish. The floor was really dirty under our table and the table was sticky. So despite the long history and great recommendations this place comes with, they need to pay a bit more attention to detail and perhaps rush things a little less! Some seating area in the... More
