For Giordano’s it began in a small northern Italian town near Torino. Mama Giordano was famous around town for her exquisite cooking. Of all her renowned dishes, her most beloved meal was her “Italian Easter Pie”. Mama Giordano would serve this double-crusted, ricotta cheese stuffed masterpiece every year for Easter. This pizza pie became a sacred tradition in the Giordano family and a legend in the town of Torino.
Years later, original owners and Italian immigrants Efren and Joseph Boglio moved to Chicago to start their own pizza business. Discouraged by the lack of authentic pizza available in the city, the brothers introduced their Mama’s recipe for stuffed pizza. In 1974, on Chicago’s historic south side, Efren and Joseph opened the first Giordano’s.
Over the next 35 years, hundreds of critics announced Giordano’s as Chicago’s “best” stuffed pizza! Giordano’s has been acclaimed “Chicago’s Best Pizza” by NBC, CBS Chicago, New York Times, Chicago Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Eater, Home & Garden Magazine, Concierge Preferred and many others.
