Really bad service. Reservation for 7PM but didn’t get seated for 25 minutes even though two groups coming after us did. Then didn’t see our waiter for another 15. Then the waiter was off drinking wine while we were waiting for our check?! They did try to make it up with a complimentary “amuse Bouche” aka ravioli of day when we were seated but not enough to make amends for the service we received after we were finally seated.

They have a limited menu, food was very good. It took some time to be served, which I think was a mix of the kitchen and server. It was very good, not sure it we will go back.

I really don’t want to tell too many people about it . Love the charming ambience - it’s not gorgeous and it’s not updated . The food is the star of the show .
Enjoyed our fish and pasta entrees immensely
Appetizers were creative and beautiful to admire and to eat
Desserts delicious

Disappointed in the service-and the angle Hair shrimp special of the day was not very good- we could never get our servers attention, others helped , but it was annoying- and he rudely dropped off our check as we received our dessert, so we felt rushed- paid, finished and as we left no one even said goodbye or thank you- I do not think we complained or were rude or demanding so not sure why the staff was not friendlier. We didn’t even say anything when the busboy bumped my sons chair so hard he visibly bolted forward- so excuse me, sorry or acknowledgement- very off evening !!

Everything was perfect! Our server Colin, who has waited on us before, is knowledgeable and outstanding! Attentive without being there too much! Food is excellent! We love the fact that you can get small portions of pasta. Not being People who eat large amounts of food, we can get an appetizer plus a portion of pasta that was more than enough and delicious! Love it!

Really enjoyed the food but found it a bit over priced for what we got (4 raviolis for $20+). Also, there were 8 of us and had very little elbow room.

Been here many times, first time I was disappointed. Had the paparedelle with sausage and squash.. pasta was over cooked and tasteless, the squash was mush, sausage was the best part but was the only thing that stood out for taste in the dish. Had the suffed tomatoe with risotto for an app, and the arugula and pear salad, both adequate but not outstanding. My friends had chicken cacciatore and the other cannelloni with veal and spinach which they both said were good.
We went on a Monday night, it was quiet so I guess the chef was not in top form. Will try again, just hope it's not a trend for Georgia!

We went with friends and everybody enjoyed the food and the service. The printed menu is great but I think the list of specials is probably just as long and very inventive and changes at the whim of the chef/owner.

Food wise one of the best in the area. Everything we had was superb. If you're in a hurry you should consider someplace else, that said the food made up for the wait. The place only has 12 tables and reservations need to be made well in advanced.

Giorgia is one of the few good restaurants in our area that is open on Mondays and my wife and I take advantage of that fact whenever we can. This past Monday we enjoyed a wonderful meal there. I tried a delicious stuffed zucchini as an appetizer while my wife had a special salad which was also excellent. My veal dish and my wife's monk fish special were both terrific as were our desserts. The service was very professional and extremely courteous. We highly recommend Giorgias.

The food was excellent as always. We do not live near this restaurant but when we are in the area we go here for dinner. This time we brought friends who had never been to Giorgia before and they loved it. The veal stuffed eggplant appetizer (a special) was delicious, as was my entree of mixed shell fish over home made spaghetti. My friend had the papardella with chopped shrimp, shitake mushrooms, and gorganzola which was excellent. I will continue to go to this restaurant anytime I am in the vicinity.

First time eating at Giorgia. The restaurant is adorable with only 12 tables. The wait staff was extremely friendly and helpful. There were several specials with a wide variety. We chose a calamari appetizer which was excellent. The entrees were equally delicious and plentiful. We would definitely return and would recommend it to our friends.

The restaurant is very good and one of the best in and around Monmouth County. It's not NYC, but no restaurant in this area is NYC. That said, the menu (very creative) and the food (always very good) were way above standard. Go to this restaurant, you will not be disappointed - promise!
