    The chopped salad was enough for 3 people! Salmon special was great but the veal marsala had hardly any veal...and the bolognese which I had with fettucine was good but not great. Noise/music was loud, and we had a hard time hearing each other.

    Started off with signature cocktails while we decided on what to eat. First course was the Chopped Salad, one of our all-time favorites, and sausage arancini. Entrees were Lemon fettuccini with shrimp in a scampi sauce (fabulous) and grilled salmon on a bed of risotto (extra fabulous). We topped it off with Molten Chocolate Cake (to die for) and yummy cannoli martinis. We are never disappointed when we dine here. We'll be back for sure.

    The only complaint I have is that we sat directly across from the back door so every time someone came in, our party of 6 would get the draft. Most of us dined with our coats on because of that. Everything else was great.

    A hidden gem in Melrose! The service was wonderful, the selections were enticing, the value was superb. It is a bit noisy, even on a slow night but otherwise an overall well worthwhile experience I’d recommend and return again.

    I ordered the swordfish which was good, but small. It came with a small potato cake and a mix of green and red peppers. I think what could have made it better would have been a vegetable instead the peppers. And two potato cakes since red the piece of fish was small. My husband had veal Marsala with pasta which was very good. Dessert was hazelnut cake. A little skimpy on the initial bread basket… 3 slices of Italian bread… we asked for more. All in all it as good

    Even with a reservation we had to wait 50 min for a table for two. And the host really didn’t even know how long the wait would be. The whole situation was mismanaged and the reservations ahead of us (also had to wait at least 30min) were all frustrated. .

    Top-notch wait staff! It's probably the best I've ever had! Authentic Italian food that's been carefully prepared to perfection. My only concern was that it was a little difficult for my disabled son to walk down the narrow, one-person aisle that was slanted. Next time, I would inform the restaurant beforehand and request the "flat floor" as you enter the door. This place is superb!

    Went to Giacomo's to celebrate my sister's birthday. Made a reservation online easily, even able to let them know we'd like a window seat. Our cocktails were not only pleasing to the eye but delicious! Our meals were generous with enough to bring home leftovers. The lemonciello cake was amazing and so was the cappucino.
