No need to fly to Italy when Giacomo's is so near. The menu is designed to appeal to a variety of palates and the prices are affordable. Reservations are suggested and adviseable as the house is not huge. Parking is on site.

Excellent meat sauce on pasta. Great flavor with the perfect acidic edge. I have no idea how they make their veggies, but they are amazing. Eminent chicken was perfection. Service was outstanding

The atmosphere in this restaurant is unusual - everyone one was friendly and welcoming - like they were so happy you came. The food was good/average with nice size portions. I had the pasta with shrimp and broccoli - pasta was not homemade. My husband had the cavitelli - that pasta was homemade and much better. Tables are very close... More

We loved this place. Friendly server and hostess with above average southern Italian food. The fried seafood appetizer is a bargain, and huge, with perfectly cooked calamari, 4 jumbo shrimp and their excellent baked clams. Our entrees were all great. Also had a nice bottle of Chianti for a reasonable price. Great value for quantity and quality. Busy place, but... More

Had a family get together and Giacomo's. You are greeted by the staff the minute you enter the restaurant. They always have a smile on their faces. The food is delicious. Large helpings. You may have to bring some home. Worry not. It reheats just fine. Everything we've had their is good. Recommend stopping in for some great food.

I don't eat Italian food out very often. My mom is the best Italian cook. HOWEVER, Giacomo's has won me over. Jack's lasagna is only 2nd to my mothers. I don't ever order lasagna out, but I get Jack's on a regular basis. I have never had a bad meal here. The staff is amazing and friendly. This place is... More

Wonderful meal, followed by great dessert. Have gone there 2x this month. My goal to try everything, that's how good it is.

And all of us were frankly underwhelmed. I can't remember what I had.... this was three months ago..... but it was not a memorable experience in any respect for any of us and the waitress I felt was a bit condescending which was amazing because we introduced our friend as a visitor from Italy.
