We went on Halloween night so it was not crowded. Wonderful atmosphere & lighting. The “454” martini very good & the Puttanesca was delicious. A word of caution: my friend lives in Melrose and she says our visit was an anomaly as the place is...More

We've been to Giacomo's several times and have been overall satisfied with the food quality and level of service. The pasta dishes are very good and the frutta di mare is one of the highlights. My only suggestion is to bring in some outside perspectives...More

The food was good, but not great. I had expected fantastic and was a little let down. The menu is missing some expected items. Their version of an antipasto is no where like a true antipasto. I also expected good Italian crusty bread with dipping...More

Give it a 3.5 stars. We had a large party of 13 people and they don't reserved a group that big. However, they were kind enough to host us. It is pretty busy Friday, but it somewhat slowed down about 8:30 if you have a...More

Was really hoping for a good local Italian option for dining - either for fine dining or just a good go-to place for good food. This was neither. I went for the most expensive lunch because I love lobster ravioli - this was so so...More

Since we love Giacomo's in the North End, we decided to give the one in Melrose a try. We arrived around 6:30 PM on a Friday evening and were seated right away, which was great since they don't take reservations. We ordered drinks and asked...More

Had a gift card and decided to use it ! Very impressed. The food was excellent. Ordered chicken, shrimp and ziti in a pesto sauce. My sister had the swordfish special. Didn’t disappoint. Excellent

This place has it all. Free parking in the back. Nick the waiter was the best. The food could not have been any better. Portions and pricing can not be beat. Some of us had seafood while others went with chicken and everyone raved about...More

The food is great! Excellent service. The atmosphere is a loud and lively Italian family diner on a busy night. Located on Main Street, but there’s a rear entrance that leads into a full-service bar and small dining area. Also where the parking lot is....More

The only way to avoid the long lines is to show up for an early dinner, which is what we have done several times. They open at 4 p.m., and it doesn't get filled up until after 5. If you need to eat later then unfortunately I... More
