“More than worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Just getting back from Boston we seen this long line waiting for Giacomo's, I told myself no way it's a block long. So we went to another local establishment. What a mistake. Went back 2 days later to wait in that 45 min line. EXCELLENT FOOD! Everything was more then reasonably priced. This place is a must!

“Worth The Wait!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

There is a reason there is always a line outside Giacomo's. Food is delicious and reasonably priced. Excellent chicken parm. Excellent everything. VERY small dining room. Cash only. No reservations at this location. They do have another restaurant on Columbus (near Symphony Hall) with the same delicious food that does take reservations. Waitstaff very friendly. Will be back next time we are in Boston.

“There is a Wait For a Reason!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Please...PLEASE do not let the wait scare you off, you will not regret it! Best eggplant parm I have ever had. It is super small inside, but that just adds to the experience. The bottles of wine are only $17 and the food is to die for. I can't wait to go back!
