Giacomo's offers a wonderful menu of Italian favorites and individual specialties. The Pumpkin Tortellini is one of the best dishes you will ever experience. What a perfect warm treat during the cool fall season!

And how could you visit Boston without trying a wonderful Lobster based entree? Giacomo's signature Lobster Ravioli is a unique treat, one that any seafood lover will approve.

Other dinner specialties include: Butternut Squash Ravioli with mascarpone cream, Chicken or Veal Marsala, and Pan Roasted Cod Loin. A full wine selection is available to complement your meal.


Service is wonderful and accommodating. Substitutions can be made with no problem. Fortunately, the crowded atmosphere does not transfer over into the service department. Waiters are professional and friendly, never rushing anyone.


There are 2 locations to choose from, both on the Northern and Southern End. Try out the Boston Common location for a less crowded atmosphere. There is often no wait on less crowded weekdays. You also get the advantage of being within close proximity to Boston Common. Take a refreshing walk before your meal. The indoor setting is a bit crowded and noisy, nevertheless, it still maintains a charming, local feel.
