My wife and I visited Giacomo's last night to celebrate my birthday. The place was surprisingly crowded for a Tuesday night, but we were shown to our table very quickly. While perusing the menu we enjoyed some bread with olive oil and an excellant cheese...More

Small, intimate restaurant with excellent Italian dishes, masterfully prepared. The pasta is homemade, and all the dishes are prepared with love!

White table cloth restaurant, food excellent. We sat outside in front and were the only people there. Our first dinning experience found service excellent, food good but menu prices a bit high for our taste.

Giacomo's is good overall. Good food, decent prices. Nothing really spectacular. Although they strive to have excellent service, when there are people (owners?) following up on servers constantly, it seems to be a little micro-managed.

Giacomo is the chef and his wife Anna Maria is the hostess. He will prepare any meal you desire with just the way you want it. They can't be more accomodating including the wait staff, especially Linda and Mary Jo. Phone number 847/390-7330

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.
