Excellent dinner and service.
My wife and I chose this for our anniversary dinner and couldn’t have been happier. It wasn’t nearly as busy as usual which was nice. The entire experience was great. The food and service was fantastic. Can’t wait to go back.
The food is great! We made a reservation and we had to wait for 30mins to get seated but overall it was a good experience.
Just great food a little crowed and noisesycalledca day earlier ask to sit down back by window but that did not happen
Best Italian food that you can get any place. Friendly staff, very clean restaurant. Great prices.
This is good food. Yes. Gnocchi with goat cheese is 100% yes I agree.
Food was awesome, service was great, waitress was friendly, had a great time.
It was just absolutely great all around.
We waited an hour after our reservation time for a table. Once seated they rushed the food out but it wasn't correct. We ordered veal and got chicken. They quickly exchanged it for the correct dish, but its a "turn and churn" type of place and not a good dining experience. If you're a foodie or experienced dinner, I would definitely not recommend it. For the less knowledgeable diner, it's okay but don't expect much. BTW, it was our anniversary (mentioned at the time of our reservation and when we arrived,) but no one even said "happy anniversary". As I said, turn and churn.
Had a lovely evening at Giacomo’s. Our waitress Natalie, although new, was very attentive and provided good customer service. Due to dietary restrictions I had to request my meal cooked without certain seasonings, etc. They accommodated accordingly and my meal was perfect and the food was delicious!
the food is authentic Italian, fabulous!! Highly recommend!
Amazing food and service! The value for what we ordered seemed much less than dining out in Boston. Great ambiance as well!
The food is excellent, but they don’t honor reservations. It was still basically first-come, first-served after we waited 30 minutes to be seated after our reservation time.
Although the pasta dish I had was delicious and flavorful and I asked for light sauce. There was way too much to really enjoy the dish .
Everything was outstanding! We made a reservation and were seated promptly! The food and wine were delicious.
Food was good! Service was excellent, Albert was great! Very attentive. We arrived a bit earlier than anticipated, made reservation assuming we would hit traffic out of Boston, but they were able to accommodate us early on a busy Friday night. Much appreciated.
Great food. Place is always packed
great food and good service light tasty italian food not too spicy
Great food, great service, nobody rushing us to leave. Very relaxing and enjoyable. We came early (5:00 p.m.) and stayed until about 7:00. Appetizer antipasto was excellent. Great menu.
Great food, great service. Lobster ravioli is to die for!
Food, service, ambiance all were great. Can’t wait to go back!
Delicious crab cakes and the best halibut I’ve ever had….very nice waiter as well…
As usual great food and service. Halibut special was outstanding! Fruitti di mare was excellent as always
As always food is delicious, our waiter was awesome, she provided great service
Hi tried to take my boyfriend her with our son for his birthday, I made a reservation and with our son we needed a booth which I specifically asked for when booking.
When we got there the host sat us a the smallest corner table possible I asked her to switch to the booth that was available she denied me.
Brought us charcoaled bread.
It was so loud in their I could even here my own thoughts.
Asked her to move again and then she was so overly rude to me so we up and left.
This was my first time at Giacomo’s
There portions were a good size. I got chicken, ziti, and penne which had no taste. Was not impressed. The bread given at the beginning was burnt on the bottom and no oil or butter was given to place on the bread. The prices are on the higher side for the quality of food being served.
Food, drinks, and service were great as always. Great prices. Large portions
We sat outside which is part of the parking lot but they have flower pots all around and string lights and umbrellas so it’s cute. Our waitress was a true professional and she knows the menu inside and out - efficient friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone that works here is pleasant cordial and you can tell they care about the clientele. And the food!!! The food is great. We had a shared chop salad for 2 but it’s really for 4 (or more)! My husband had Marsala and he loved it. He also had a side meatball (giant) which was delicious. That says a lot because he is Italian and his mom made meatballs. I had the Fracomo which was a combination of the Fra Diavolo and the Giacomo sauce - just the right amount of spicy. I had a half lobster clams and mussels but there are many seafood options. Excellent food. The sauce had such depth of flavor. Loved it and will go back to try the other selections that I didn’t get that night. It was quiet outside but noisy and cozy inside the restaurant and bar.
Always great food and service. Very pleasant waitstaff, fresh prepared food.
We were seated promptly at our reservation time.
Great Italian food with great menu options. The caesar salad was one of the best we ever had with lots of anchovies. We were all very happy with our meals, and don't forget the drink menu; awesome selections and the best wine pour in town!!!
Nick was the highlight of the dinner! Great service and friendly and professional!
We had drinks (total of 5 of them) and both had appetizers and then two meals so we knew the bill would be relatively high. But the quality of the food is very good and the service we had was outstanding! We sat outside, patio dining, and the ambiance was OK, but it was our choice to sit outside so I won't place fault on the restaurant. We both would go back and we enjoyed our visit a lot!
A fabulous restaurant. The Blueberry sparkler was amazing. Our server was spot on . The food was perfect, and dessert was awesome. The perfect night for friends to catch up and enjoy each other.
Our first time at Giacamo’s, but as our server said, ‘you may be rookies, but soon you’ll be regulars.’ We ate outside due to COVID, and both indoor and outdoor dining was full. Like many restaurants these days, they are short on staff, but our server did a great job being attentive and answering any questions we had.
The food is very good and portions are large. We especially enjoyed the lobster ravioli, chicken piccata, and swordfish special. Prices are very reasonable, and we plan to become regulars!
This is one of my favorite go-to places in Melrose. Staff is friendly and polite and in all the years I have been eating here, I have never been disappointed. Food is delicious and plentiful.
Wonderful meal as per usual
Delicious food as always!! Food was served prompt and hot! Even my mother enjoyed her meal!!
Staff was very accommodating. The portion sizes are generous enough that we are able to share an antipasto platter and a,fruit of the Sea and still have leftovers. The food and presentation are consistently well done. Giacomos is our new "go to" placem
