“Avoid”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We ordered linguine. We got spaghetti. When brought to the attention of Michael, waiter, he said he forgot to tell us their linguine is really spaghetti! he suffered from hubris. The food was heavy with heavy sauce. Salt was the main taste of all dishes. We did not stay for dessert.

“Overpriced!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Giacamos has absolutly no ambiance, it is situated in the middle of a strip mall, the food is OK, it is overpriced for the flavor and presentation, It feels more like a place where you would grab a quick bite to eat for lunch, If you are looking for great italian food in the tucson area this is not it, Try Vivacies instead same price much better food and better ambiance.

“Not my cup of spagetti”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Food is average at best and over priced. I asked for a different kind of pasta than was described and was told the chef's (cook) recipes were not to be changed.
Not very friendly place.

“Terrible restaurant!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012 via mobile

We live in the neighborhood, and made a resvation for a nice Italian dinner. What a disppointment! I had a chicken dish with a sauce reminiscent of wallpaper paste. My wife had pasta with a sauce that was so spicy that it was inedible. Never again!
