2 | Giordano’s | The recipe for Giordano’s famous stuffed pizza has evolved for more than 200 years, first originating in a small northern town in Italy near Torino. From there, Italian immigrants moved to Chicago and started their own pizza business, introducing the stuffed pizza at the first Giordano’s in the historic south side. Today, true to their Windy City roots, they offer authentic deep-dish, stuffed pies and thin crust pies, each with zesty tomato sauce and flavorful, fresh, hand-selected ingredients. Aside from pizza, the menu also offers starters, salads and options for kiddos. Full-service dining is available, but we recommend taking advantage of the fact that they offer pizza delivery to all of the major resorts so that you can enjoy dinner delivered directly to your door. Convenience and Old World Italian deliciousness? Yes, please!
