Reasonable prices. Cash only. Real Italian. Delicious pasta. Very good tiramisu. Too noisy since the acoustics is horrible. We were curious about this place since people are always waiting outside (and no reservations are taken).

Giacomo’s offers traditional Italian food in a nice, unpretentious setting. The food is excellent, with meat, fish and vegetarian options, and so too is the service. Prices are modest: Dinner for four, with wine, was roughly $140.

Two tips:

1. Make a reservation. This is a small restaurant.

2. Bring cash. No credit cards are accepted.

Stayed in Boston for one night on a stop over from NYC to Gloucester and came here for dinner. It was only a ten minute walk from the hotel we stayed at.

There was a really nice vibrant atmosphere in the restaurant and the staff were very helpful when asking opinions/advice for stuff on the menu. Portions were absolutely massive take note! My partner forgot to order his starter as we got chatting to the waiter so we shared my breaded mozzarella (it was huge) then I had the seafood spaghetti which was a massive portion as was my partners chicken Parma. We are both big eaters but couldn’t even finish what we had as the portions were so big. Wine was lovely too we had a bottle of red.

All over amazing food, great atmosphere, friendly staff, generous portions and very reasonably priced! Would come back when visiting Boston again!
