Date of Visit: Wednesday, June 4, 2014
Six friends gathered. Two were locals and knew. Four were visitors and hadn't a clue. Two Stuffed Pizza Pies were ordered: One Chicago Classic and one Special.
Most of us had eaten "Chicago Style" pizza before but never before have we enjoyed so delicious a pie. It is one thing to have a mostly-crust, slightly filled pizza with so-so flavor. It is altogether another thing of culinary magnificence to savor a thin-bottomed, stuffed-full, flavor-filled gastronomic delight from Giordano's!
Our local friends suggested the Hyde Park location was among the best and we cannot disagree. The pizza was fantastic and although we took some home it didn't last long! As a starter we enjoyed the House Salad, which was fresh and flavorful.
The decor' was bright and fun. The service was prompt and friendly. And much to the surprise of we out-of-town visitors, although Giordano's doesn't serve chilled adult beverages, the restaurant is BYOB and there is a nearby liquor store for those who so want a cold one with their pie. Home run!
Giordano's served some of the very best stuffed, "Chicago Style" pizza any of us had ever tasted. We will return again and again...
