The food was very tasty. They were out of some staples in their menu--broccoli rabe, asparagus--and changing anything seemed to be a problem. Overall a nice evening.

This BYOB is a very good restaurant. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant was not busy and therefore quiet. The Salmon was fresh and delicious as were the chicken dishes. Parking is easy and they honor reservations

Casual dining in a classic restaurant setting.
The food and service are EXCELLENT! And, at very reasonable prices.
Every dish is a delight. No one makes veal like Giorgio's, and don't forget the made in restaurant home style ricotta Italian cheese cake for desert!
This is why we have dined here regularly for many years----

Two in our party had the crusted hazelnut salmon and loved it. Cooked perfectly with a lovely side of potatoes. Highly recommend. It had a great presentation and filled both of them up. Unfortunately, the same could not be said for the shrimp sugoloso I had. The presentation was fine but the taste was horrific. The dish is supposed to be a pesto dish with sun dried tomatoes. All of this happened except the dish was bland and watered down. It was as if the chef forgot to drain the pasta before adding the pesto. Cordon blue Academy 101. I’m not sure where the chef went wrong, but if this is how it is supposed to be, I would not recommend ordering it. I would have sent it back but I did not want to ruin the birthday we were celebrating.

Went here before a show at SOPAC. Easy walking distance. Food was delicious, and service attentive. Good menu selection. Relaxed atmosphere - restaurant is in a house, so not your usual big loud dining rooms. Will go back.

Service and food. excellent. They start you off with a small cup of spices to add to olive oil and bread.
We split a tri color salad, more than enough, and dinner was angel hair pasta with sun dried tomatoes, broccoli rabe garlic and salmon chunks. We had a nice plate of biscottis for dessert.

pros : nice ambience, quiet and cozy great service, the prime rib and veal chop was cooked just right cut like butter !
Cons : BYOB , If you don't mind ice cold butter totally unspreadable, for your room temperature bread , TAP WATER, no Pellegrino or bottled water was offered. Someone in my party had a pasta dish that was so dry and tasteless they couldn't eat it.
Might try the restaurant again but something different on the menu but not going to run to it 😒

Chicken and shrimp dishes were delicious though temperature of sides was uneven. No water served throughout dinner. We were unaware of BYOB and so were unprepared.
Staff polite.

The ambiance is fairly elegant, with tables nicely spaced. The menu has a good variety and our food came out very hot and attractively presented. Prices are not excessive, especially since you can bring you own wine. Definitely one of the better restaurants in the area.

This was an outing for my Wife birthday. This place and the few friends that dined with me and my wife made it memorable night, especially for her. Everything was perfect, from the request, food and the service. The ambience was exactly what I was going for, nice and elegant. Food was amazing, everyone who ordered was not disappointed with their dish. I applaud the authenticity of each dish. Will return soon.

We recently added Giorgio's to our "Favorites" list. We live in Morris County but discovered this neighborhood gem in South Orange when we were looking for a place to have dinner prior to seeing a play at the nearby Luna Stage in West Orange. The room is attractive, the staff is very pleasant and accommodating, and we've had fantastic meals in each of our three visits. We'll be back.
