    What a great find. A quaint converted old South Orange home family owned and operated. Tremendous service with a smile from the owners daughter and delicious food from the soup special to creative appetizers to large portion perfectly prepared entrees. A creamy delicious Cappuccino with wonderful Italian desserts capped off a wonderful dining experience. Not to mention very reasonably priced and BYOB. Would highly recommend!! Will definitely be returning.

    This was our first visit to Giorgio’s and it did not disappoint. The courses were served in a timely manner - not too slowly but def not rushed. The grilled squid was favorable and done just right. My entree of lamb chops in a merlot sauce was very tasty and sooo many chops I was shocked. My husbands dish of tortelloni with porcini in a cream sauce was also very good. We are sure to visit the next time we attend a show at SOPAC. Thank you the hostess who was quite pleasant and accommodating!

    The calamari and mushroom appetizers were very good. Our friends linguine with white clam sauce was very good. Our other 3 entrees were just ok. A little disappointed from our previous trips. We do enjoy your restaurant very much but this time not up to par. Mary and Anthony are both very nice.

    The service was very good. The food was very good. We were not rushed. However, I did ask to substitute pasta instead of rice that came with my dish. I asked the waiter if I can do that, he said "sure, no problem". The waiter never told me it was $10 for a side of pasta. I asked if I could change aka substitute. I never ordered a SMALL side of pasta for $10. The dishes are not cheap but the portions are good, fresh and full of flavor. I was with other people so I didn't want to make a fuss about being charged the $10. Because of this, I will not be back.

    EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT!!! We cannot say enough good things about this restaurant, the owners and the food!!! The called us right before we left to go to the restaurant to tell us they had a sudden issue come up and the menu would be a fixed menu because of the issue. They were kind enough to call us and let us know. We were a little worried as we do not like a fixed menu, but we were meeting our family so we just said what the heck. If what the multiple selection of AMAZING FOOD from start to finish was a fixed menu, we would eat there EVERY SINGLE DAY! Thank you to the owners you are always kind and gracious! We feel like we are home with family!

    Had been here many years ago and now I know why I hadn’t returned. Service was lackluster and poor. Food was mediocre at best. My husband got a steak which he requested medium and it was well done. We advised the staff and they could care less. Was nice sitting outside but very noisy with other patrons speaking and shouting. Tables are old and wobbly. Would not recommend or return.

    Although the food in general was tasty, the service was slow and uneven. Our group got their plates at substantially different times with long waits. We had difficulty getting anyone waitstaffs attention for followup help, even for the simple request of more bread or water.

    If you want to dine in an intimate, peaceful environment reserve your table at Georgio’s today. The food is always delicious and the servers and friendly. There is no alcohol served however you may bring your own bottle of cheer. Two thumbs up!

    I get it was Valentine’s Day and restaurants are over burdened. But we waited 15 mins for a waiter after we were seated to give even bring us water, who explained to us that he was “in the bathroom”. Price Fixe me u. Shrimp cocktail was three small shrimp. Mozz and tomato salad was awful. Tomato was so unripe it was very pink and hard to cut with a knife. Short ribs over risotto was an overcooked fatty mess over white rice. Veal chop was thin and tough. Even the coffee they served tasted like it was 3 hours old. All for $60 a person plus tax and gratuity. Total rip off. Don’t go near this place. It’s horrible.

    I’ve been dining at Giorgio’s for a number of years. The food is always top notch and the service is always friendly and professional. The restaurant is also very beautiful inside; you have the feeling you are inside a spacious dining room in someone’s home. I have taken many family members and friends here for lunch or dinner, and they always ask to go back again. They always remember their experience at Giorgio’s.
