  • Oh my goodness. They hand you a piece of chocolate when you walk in the door. Tell you where they are selling the "seconds", then point out the restaurant. Had a brownie sundae. They do not skip on po...  more »

  • If you've never been to one of these shops before you should go. The chocolate, ice cream, hot chocolate and chocolate desserts are all quite good. When I saw this location, I practically ran to it. U...  more »

  • Beautiful place for chocolate lovers.. large variety of chocolate assortments.. plus amazing ice cream and beverages you get here.. on top free ghirardelli chocolate square on entry sure brings you back here.. :p ..
  • This is it. Right here. The one, the only. The best! Giordano's is the best. Now granted, if you are from Chicago then the best pizza that you know of is your neighborhood pizza place. That's just how it goes. However, Giordano's is a local chain. And there's usually one nearby. Chicago is obviously known for deep dish pizza. But, what most people don't realize, is that people from Chicago rarely eat the deep dish pizza. Chicagoans like thin crust pizza. Fact. The deep dish is good as a treat once in a while, but you're always going to get a thin crust. My personal favorite, and the only thing I ever order from Giordano's, thin crust sausage and green pepper. Nothing fancy. That's it. Perfection. Like I said, Giordano's does do a good stuffed deep dish. A very good stuffed deep dish. On the rare occasion that I do get it, I typically get sausage and spinach. Can't go wrong with that either. Would I go back? Yes. I always do. In fact a few locations have popped up in a few different cities around the country and I seek them out too. Giordano's is one of two places that I need to hit every time I'm in Chicago. It'll never let you down. And no matter what location you go to, you're still getting the same high quality Pizza. You will not be disappointed.
  • Believe the hype: delicious ice cream and tasty chocolate samples when you walk in. The customer service is great, which is even more impressive when it's very busy (which it usually is). There are a lot of touristy restaurants downtown that do well despite not being special, but this place has substance that lives up to its popularity.
  • It's an ice cream paradise for the ice cream connoisseurs. Full of many ice cream options to satisfy your dairy cravings. Good size portions at reasonable prices. Definitely check this place out when in the area.
  • Beautiful store with sublime treats. Try the chocolate dipped waffle cone, it's memorably good! Service was grumpy, but not even they could bring down the charming atmosphere.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
