The value was not up to the food quality and test. The mean was over spacy and not pleasant.

We had a superb meal at Giorgio's last weekend. We all started with the kale Ceaser salad, which consisted of baby kale that must have been massaged until it was tender and covered in very good parmesan cheese and a great Ceaser dressing. I could have eaten three of them
Two of us had the Halibut special. The fish was cooked to perfection, as was the risotto it was served with. Our guest had the scallops, which were also excellent. They were nicely browned but tender and not overcooked on the inside.
We all wanted different wines so we just did wines by the glass. The selections were not numerous, but they were all very good.
We just shared one dessert and it was a very good panna cotta.
We look forward to returning soon.

Lovely dinner for two. Our favorite romantic evening. Eating at this restaurant for over 13 years and never a bad meal or experience. Food is fabulous and wait staff attentive and caring. Go! You won’t be disappointed!

The food is delicious at Giorgio. We had a 7pm reservation and, unfortunately the special was already sold out. It was very cold in the restaurant, so we had to keep our coats over our shoulders. Also, it was dark, so candles would have been pretty. We saw others using their phone flashlights to read the menus. So, although the food was delicious, the service was scattered and we were cold 😞

This was our first time in and we had a great experience! We’ve walked by and wondered why they were never busy, and after trying still wondering why they aren’t busier! A hidden gem that we’re glad we found!

My girlfriends and I stopped by here for dinner after a great weekend in Oregon wine country. The food was phenomenal the service was fantastic and the ambience was great. The only downside, and this is a very small downside, was that my food was warm around the edges and cool or almost a little cold in the center. I ate most of it and told the waiter I wasn’t mad. But I did want to let the management know that it was cool in the middle. I would definitely go back to this restaurant but I would double check to make sure the temperature was good.

We were extremely disappointed as this was a Valentines Day date, I checked Giorgio’s website to see if there was a special Valentine’s Day menu, and there was nothing posted. Even the menu page on the website showed amazing photos of plates of food, but no menu posted. I elected to assume that they would have the full menu available.

When we showed up we were greeted at the door by who I assume was the owner, and seated at a table which was placed in a position on the floor that wasn’t ordinary to the normal restaurant’s daily operation, thus I wasn’t able to sit across from my wife.
The table wobbled badly and spilled water all over.


The waiter was kinda creepy and weird in his mannerisms.

We had already ordered a glass of wine when my wife looked at the menu and noticed that it WAS in fact a special menu with a price of $75 per plate.

I had budgeted for a typical formal dining that we normally do of around $100 (not including tip), but not $150 plus tip.

One of the most flavorful means we've had in a long time. Giorgio himself oversees service and makes each customer feel most welcomed in his fine restaurant. The Caesar salad, thoughtfully made with butter lettuce rather than romaine, had multiple delightful flavors: so very different from the run-of-the mill Caesar salads. They make all of the their own pasta and it really shows: what a difference! Giorgio's will surely be on our "must" list when we next return to Portland.

Giorgio's has been around the Pearl District for 20 years and remains one of our favorites for creative and well-prepared Northern Italian cuisine. It's a wonderful dining experience.

I hope this place continues to stay open because it is cozy, well located, service is great, and the food is really tasty. The only problem is that its pricey. We spent $150 for 3 and all we had was pasta and salads- no alcohol!

I have eaten at Giorgio's numerous times and each time the quality of the food was outstanding. Most recently I ate the Lamb Osso Buco, a great winter dish. Their pasta dishes are also superb, and I have sampled most of them. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The service from our waitress was great. The food was just okay, mostly underseasoned (specifically the pappardelle was very underwhelming, slightly watered down and was not salted enough). Note that there is a sharing cost per plate. It didn't quite make sense at the time, considering we were two people and had ordered two appetizers and two mains. To keep things simple, we did tell the waitress to forget about sharing. The menu listed on Open Table is not representative of actual menu.

Giorgio's is always outstanding. Every dish is creative, they use locally sourced food, and always have seasonal specials. The service is meticulous, and all of the food is always terrific. The atmosphere is vaguely European, and it's a quiet enough space that you can have an actual conversation while dining! Giorgio himself is the host and head waiter. Authentic Italian, both owner and restaurant.

I brought a group of 13 people to Giorgio‘s for a business dinner and couldn’t be more pleased. The owner himself took special care to make sure all of our needs were met. The food was excellent. Several of my guests commented how flavorful their entrées were. I would definitely come here again individually or with a group.The noise level was low which made it easy to carry on detailed conversations.

For us, Giorgio’s best combines comfort with cuisine of the many Italian restaurants we’ve tried in Portland. It is utterly reliable, by which I mean that we always have a good, true Italian meal with solicitous service. The owner is unfailingly gracious. Each time we return, we wonder why we have bothered with other restaurants which are enjoying a current buzz.

We went for a birthday celebration! The calamari appetizer was amazing and the pasta very fresh and authentic. Farm to table salads and veggies. Good quality and nice atmosphere.
