Went there for the first time on our 42nd anniversary. Not disappointed. Great service and Food. Small place. a bit romantic. Italian delights. Tried new items. Certainly not like Olive Garden......Very good stuff.

Have dined three times at Giordano's and overall slightly above average. Service mirrors the food.....slightly above average. Not much more to say.....we will return, not frequently. The restaurant lacks personality, not a dining experience you would recommend to friends.

We saw some good reviews so we made a reservation and dropped in for dinner. My son ordered chicken parm which was awful. I love chicken Marsala which was awful. The Marsala sauce was more like chicken gravy from a powder. I am sure the buns were warmed in a microwave. I looked and otehr dishes looked to be nuked... More

Thanks for your review, and I am sorry that you did not enjoy your meals. I wish that you would have brought it to the server's attention so we could have rectified the matter. Everything that is prepared here is made from scratch, no powder gravies and please note that we nuke NOTHING. The buns are a real favorite of... More

A restaurant review should answer the question: "Does this place deliver on the expectations it sets up?" Giordano's does deliver very well. Everything about the place says "traditional American Italian" even though this is typically associated with the Northeast, it is in fact national. Here's what I mean: Frank Sinatra sings in the background. The aroma of garlic and herbs... More

Being from Boston we were not too sure if an Italian restaurant in AZ would be up to our standards. Happily the food tasted just as it should. Portions are not huge but just enough. It's the marinara which has to meet the true test and it did. Service was attentive even on a busy night. Very glad we found... More

Disappointing preparation, but good service. Background: I was raised in an Italian East coast household (Rome/Sicilian) and I was taught and enjoy preparing meals from my Nanny’s teachings and maybe my standards and preparation are different. I prepare Italian meals for my wife and my mother in law (not Italian) constantly. My wife saw the reviews and the family decided... More

Locals suggested this restaurant and we were glad to have followed their advice. Good waitress and other serves, food was served hot and was delicious. Pretty decor and the tables were nicely spaced. Not huge portions but rather quality ingredients. I did make a reservation.

As a European with a father from Greece and having been in Italy many times I enjoyed the food here very much. It made me feel at home. Make sure you make an reservation as this place is very busy

Let me mention the homemade rolls fresh and hot from the oven with awesome olive oil to start our wonderful night! For our first visit and most certainly not our last, we all loved our meal and send thanks to Adele the Proprietor for a wonderful dinner!
