We had the anti-pasti salad, house salad and a medium stuffed pepperoni/spinach pizza. The salads were incredible. The house had a light lemony dressing and the anti-pasti had an Italian red wine vinaigrette dressing. The pizza was very filling. Two of us could only eat one piece and the other ate two pieces. Very much worth the money.

The deep dish stuffed crust pizza may well be the best pizza I have ever had. Already planning to have it again on the first night of my next visit!

When my husband and I travel to Chicago to visit friends, we ALWAYS go to the Giordano's on Van Buren at least once. It was the first one we tried more than 15 years ago, and it's the one we always start our 4th of July vacation with! We eat at other Giordano's but this is our favorite! Yet, with... More

It's a very nice place. It's not very expressive and the pizza was amazing! All the products was fresh. The waitress was very friendly And very nice. It's a good restaurant to go with Friends.

We live 3 hours south of Chicago and are die hard Cub fans so we make the trip up north several times a year. We spent Mother's Day at Wrigley this year, which turned into a 13 inning game. It was late on a Sunday and we wanted Giordano's for dinner. We did a search and found this one was... More

Giordano’s is our favorite Chicago style deep dish. We always get pepperoni. This was our first deep dish in over a year and a half and it couldn’t have tasted any better. Good location close to the metro without a wait. For more information and pictures check out our site : thegreatcubeescape.com

Based on tv shows and online reviews I made a chance on eating at this place here in Chicago.For this review I'll start with the most obvious, the food. The food is just ok. Middle of the pack kind of pizza. There are hundreds of others like this around, the Philippines alone and non Italian countries have better pizza than... More

I attended a small event at this restaurant and I was dreading it because, I don't really like pizza that much. Was I surprised! The served deep dish and thin crust, a great pasta, a veal in a red gravy, chicken lemon, their special bread, great desserts and a selection of wine, beer and cocktails. I tasted almost everything and... More

Seems like when I am there , there are always huge parties which was they same this time. Decent parking in the vicinity. Gives diners a choice of something other than Greek food. Decent service and good pizza
