“Great sauce, steak and atmosphere!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Ordered the steak, and it was seasoned to perfection. It literally melted in my mouth! At first, this seemed a bit pricey, but the price included house salad, garlic bread, two homemade ravioli, spaghetti, meatballs, a relish plate, AND the steak. Two folks could easily order one plate,but we preferred to take some home and try more than one thing. The fettuccine was also great! The sauce for the spaghetti was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was romantic. Sure, the building is old, but it was clean and well kept. Then we tried the Turtle Cheesecake and coffee, and it was a winner too! Service was fine, and the food was excellent.

“THE BEST SAUCE IN TOWN!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Although the place is dated, the food is good. There are 5 Italian restaurants in the area and Giacomo's has the best sauce.

“awful”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Absolutely the worst restaurant meal we ever had. It smells kind of dank and mildewy. An italian place should smell like garic and great cooking. Obviously hasn't been updated in many years. The food was truly awful...tasted canned and the ravioli was inedible...filling almost nonexistant and the dough was very heavy, dense and grainy.
There is no wine served. They serve a lot of food but most of it is so awful, they would be much smarter to serve less food and try to have a modicum of quality to what is offered up laughably as italian.
