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.

Excellent meat sauce on pasta. Great flavor with the perfect acidic edge. I have no idea how they make their veggies, but they are amazing. Eminent chicken was perfection. Service was outstanding

We loved this place. Friendly server and hostess with above average southern Italian food. The fried seafood appetizer is a bargain, and huge, with perfectly cooked calamari, 4 jumbo shrimp and their excellent baked clams. Our entrees were all great. Also had a nice bottle...More
