All reviews the butternut squash ravioli calamari homemade fusilli seafood frutti di mare fra diavolo ziti bread prosciutto salad cannoli worth the wait wait in line the north end italian food long line bring cash
I had a HORRIBLE experience with one of the servers today. I don’t usually write reviews but I felt really offended by her and it totally ruined my day. I came all the way from Canada and my friend recommened this place because she told...More
I can only assume this place has the number of high ratings it does because giddy tourists believe the toxically masculine, aggressive male servers' behavior is a relic of old Italy or is authentically Boston. I can assure you it is not authentically Boston; I've...More
We waited in line for about an hour to eat at Giacomo’s and it was worth the wait! I got the special that night which was half lobster and half spaghetti. I couldn’t decide on what sauce to get and the waitress recommended the Fracomo...More
Go early or try to time so you leave when the first seating leaves! We had a short wait - no list just stand in line.
The tables are small and in a tight space, but the food was delicious and worth the wait. Would...More
There will be a line.. probably hour to an hour and a half wait but it’s part of the experience! Meet some people in line and enjoy the experience! Small restaurant (hence the wait) but the food is delicious!!! Authentic Italian!! Very reasonably priced too!!
Excellent..worth the wait. Fresh ingredients, cozy atmosphere, great waitstaff. We (2 of us) waited about 20 minutes. Had the Burrata for an appetizer, lobster ravioli with a white gravy and Fontina ravioli with pancetta in a red gravy. I want to go back to try...More

A friend from Boston took me there 20 years ago and it was one of the most memorable meals of my life. I went back a few days ago and our waitress asked if we were first timers. I told her I ate at Giacomo's...More
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
