We arrived at Giacomo's on a weekday around 5:00 pm, already anticipating the wait to get into the restaurant. After 45 minutes, we were seated in the cramped dining area. Based on previous reviews, we ordered the Calamari which was piping hot and absolutely scrumptious. For our entrees, I ordered the Lobster Ravioli and my husband had the Homemade Fusilli w/ Lobster and Shrimp. Both entrees were delicious and also reasonably priced. The fast-pace and bustle of the restaurant didn't bother us Chicagoans as we are used to moving quickly and a more tense atmosphere. Remember to bring cash with you as the restaurant does not accept credit cards or checks. The family next to us had to leave a pair of sunglasses on the table while they traveled across the street to get cash at the ATM. The restaurant is also at a good location on Hanover Street-- afterwards we visited the coveted Mike's Pastry and then saw a show at Improv Asylum. Overall, Giacomo's is a rushed, yet enjoyable dining experience that was reasonably priced and left us feeling satisfied.
