My wife and I are from the coast of Southern Maine and these are the best scallops we've ever had. The clam strips were also really good. Decent fries and slaw. Fair prices and a good amount of food. We did the take out window so can't speak to restaurant side.

I love this place when I visit MV we go every time they are open. The pizza is very good for MV, most pizza in Marthas Vineyard is gross. The fried clams are great, the batter is super ready and crispy. NOT whole belly clams if you prefer whole belly. I do not like the while belly clams they are... More

As it turned out, they were closing for the season a week after we were there, so maybe they were just "done" with the season. It was raining heavily and the water was leaking into the restaurant from the ceiling near our table. They kept trying to seat people at a table under the leak! Food was just so-so. Will... More

After a day at the beer festival we needed some pizza ! Giordano was recommended by a local we met. Take out window was BUSY. We ordered 2 pies. Plain and meatball. I was surprised at the cost- $35. But the pizza was tasty.

Great family restaurant. The BEST fried onion rings and clams EVER! During my visit to the Vineyard this past summer I went twice - the first experience sitting down inside, the second from the take out window and sitting outside. Although the service inside was great the experience of sitting outside watching the world go by was more enjoyable to... More

Walked out of another place and stumbled on Giordano's. Shrimp and scallops pesto was great. And the dessert with my wife's fried clams--blueberry bread pudding was perfect. Great service

The food was fine but nothing exceptional for a restaurant and a "must visit" in MV. Atmosphere was fun and staff friendly enough. Wouldn't rush back as a couple but maybe good for families with kids

We stopped here for an early dinner before returning on the last ferry to falmouth. We wanted the veal parm dinner however it was too much food. For a good price, dinner comes with soup or salad dinner pasta and dessert. We chose the veal parm sandwich for only 12.99! The sandwich was huge and came with fries. Our server... More

I've been going to Giordano's since I was a teenager and that's was ages ago. Also have had friends who've worked their during our summer vacations back in the day. It is definitely a Vineyard landmark. Upon getting off the ferry, my first stop on the island is at Giodano's for a pint of fried clams -- confirmation that I've... More
