Simply the best Italian found around. All fresh ingredients, excellent variety, and wonderful authentic dishes. Family run business that warmly greets you when you step through the door. Reasonably priced dishes. Dinners are splendid and their lunch specials are amazing at an amazing price.

Every time we come to Chicago we make a point of having dinner at Giacomos. This is an old style Italian restaurant with really great food. This time I opted for grilled salmon and my spouse had manicotti. Salmon is tough to cook well, it's often overdone but this was perfect. Lots of accompaniments- steamed vegetables and best with the... More

Had the Lobster and Shrimp Ravioli for dinner and a cannoli for dessert. Both were to die for! Came here to celebrate two birthdays and the server brought out 2 pieces of tiramisu with candles! Nice personal touch to... More

Super convenient to the business hotels and casino. Nice patio seating with multiple TVs around the perimeter serving great Chicago style deep dish pizza. Service was good and the beer was cold. Great place to enjoy the cool summer evenings.

My wife, son and I went to this restaurant on 25 July, when we arrived in Northbrook. Dishes are well served. We ordered the Cavatelle with Picky-Packy sauce (fresh tomato, basil, garlic and onion) and a Penne with Marinara sauce and meatballs. They were delicious! For dessert, my son had a Gelato, and my wife and I shared a Tiramisu... More
