A superb dining experience! Chef Richie selected several courses for us to sample as we celebrated our 10th anniversary. Each course was a explosion of flavors: sauteed greens with shrimp and scallops, perfectly cooked calamari with homemade tartar sauce,squash ravioli and rare tuna steak with a red wine, black truffle sauce. All was complimented by an excellent bottle of wine and superb service. The Chef is one of the best and most creative we have enjoyed!

I have been to this Giacomos a few times now, I recently went there on a first date and had a great time. Limited seating is an issue, but spending time on the sidewalk in the NorthEnd with somebody special isn't so bad. You WILL have a great meal. Try the butternut squash ravioli!!

While I was having dinner I heard the owner yelling in the kitchen; probably at the staff as I have heard him do on many occasions. Management seems to be very abusive to the staff; even the hostess/greeter seemed miserable when we walked in the res ...

Beautiful restaurant with delicious food! To be honest, when I went to this restaurant I didn't even know where Sardinia was, much less what kind of food they ate. I had just heard good things about the place and I thought it was worth giving it a tr ...

Amazing buffalo chicken pizza! I love a good buffalo chicken pizza and it can be tough to find one. I'm picky about it, and a lot of places make it with too much sauce or not enough chicken, and it's very easy for it to become pretty lousy. I gave Pa ...

My favorite place to eat! The only draw back is the limited seating and the potential line, get there early!!!

I visted this small, intimate restaurant with my husband and daughter and the service was superb and the food exquisite. The only problem is the very limted seating and long wait if you do not hit it early. It is worth the wait, however! JMN
