THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Giordano's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: There is as much controversy in this city over who originated stuffed pizza as there is about the latest political brouhaha. We have our own opinion about the birth of stuffed pizza, but the story is too long to recount here. Suffice it to say, then, that Giordano’s got rolling some twenty years ago, and for a long time the only pizza it made (and some say brought to perfection) was stuffed. Today it also serves thin-crust pizza, but it isn’t half as interesting as the stuffed version, which is filled with plenty of choice ingredients, from vegetables and sausage to shrimp and beyond. It’s well-made pizza, but sometimes the consistency of the sauce varies from one location to another. But Giordano’s never misses on the crust---it’s consistently good, the texture exactly what it should be. Call for other locations.
