After a day at the beer festival we needed some pizza ! Giordano was recommended by a local we met. Take out window was BUSY. We ordered 2 pies. Plain and meatball. I was surprised at the cost- $35. But the pizza was tasty.

Great family restaurant. The BEST fried onion rings and clams EVER! During my visit to the Vineyard this past summer I went twice - the first experience sitting down inside, the second from the take out window and sitting outside. Although the service inside was great the experience of sitting outside watching the world go by was more enjoyable to... More

The food was fine but nothing exceptional for a restaurant and a "must visit" in MV. Atmosphere was fun and staff friendly enough. Wouldn't rush back as a couple but maybe good for families with kids

We stopped here for an early dinner before returning on the last ferry to falmouth. We wanted the veal parm dinner however it was too much food. For a good price, dinner comes with soup or salad dinner pasta and dessert. We chose the veal parm sandwich for only 12.99! The sandwich was huge and came with fries. Our server... More

I've been going to Giordano's since I was a teenager and that's was ages ago. Also have had friends who've worked their during our summer vacations back in the day. It is definitely a Vineyard landmark. Upon getting off the ferry, my first stop on the island is at Giodano's for a pint of fried clams -- confirmation that I've... More

Simplistic, fresh, uncannily good. The scallops and clams were the best fried seafood I've ever had, hands down. No frills take and eat, but worth every bite.

The pizza window is great if your looking for a slice on the go. If your looking for a sit down meal you can't beat the lasagna or the chicken Parmesan. The drinks here are great as well

I recently went to the restaurant for dinner with family. We ordered some of the baked specials, which we think are prepared ahead of time because some of the specials were cold in the middle. Outside of that the food is tasty and the waitress was very nice.
