Every meal we’ve had at Ristorante Georgia has been outstanding! My personal favorite is the swordfish which is not on the menu, but frequently offered as a special. The long stemmed artichoke salad is excellent! So many delicious menu items, and we have never been disappointed with the quality, presentation and taste. The worst thing that ever happened was that they were fully booked one night and we couldn’t get a reservation! Can’t wait to go back.

We’ve lived 2 miles from this place for 5 years and didn’t know it was there. What a gem! Great food. So glad we went. Perfectly done swordfish in a lemon butter sauce. Great pasta. Great salads. And even great cannoli and tartufo. Will be a regular now.

The food is excellent! We love the cannellini bean appetizer is wonderful. Our meals were fresh and delicious.
It was very hot outside so the restaurant was a little warm.
I do wish the servers would pour the first glass of wine. That is something I wish they would do.
Overall, the quality of the food is excellent.

this is restaurant food at its best . I like to go early because the noise level then is not a problem It is one large room with many tables fairly close to each other and when the room is filled it is very noisy I go at five when they open. By six it is pretty much filled on a weekend and noisy. Plain and simple, this is just superb food.

If you got the time this places is in my opinion one of the 2 or 3 best restaurants in the area. The service is great but the food is outstanding. If your looking for a quick meal this is not the
place. Everything is cooked to order and cooked to perfection.

Terrible service. Our waiter chatted on the phone for 20 minutes before he came to take our order. We arrived at 6:30 and didn’t get our entree until 8:16. Compliments to the chef: the food was delicious. People who arrived after us were served and finished before our waiter finally got around to us. He should be fired. A free dessert didn’t make up for the lack of attention.

We actually tried this place because I read the owner was from the same town in Italy that my grandfather was born in and wanted to see what the food was like. What a great surprise. The specials alone were overwhelming and Alfred or waiter described them perfectly. We ordered all specials. The sausage and swiss chard was perfect as was our artichoke heart salad. Gnocci with cream sauce and linguine with shrimp and shitake mushrooms were superb. I remarked how the flavors all jumped out on our tongues so wonderfully that we were disappointed when our plates were done. We always try to go to different restaurants weekly, but it's going to be hard not to go back to this one.

We received a gift certificate from a friend and decided to take the family for our daughter's 22nd birthday. The food was fantastic and we all enjoyed our choices. The ambience was very old world Italian rustic and our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The only downside was that it is very pricey. Definitely a special occasion destination only. Highly recommend reservations as the restaurant is small with only a few tables.

I've been to RG a few times..this time was not a stand out..a white bean appetizer was lacking in flavor, as was the cauliflower ravioli special that I ordered..on the flip side, dining companions' arrugula salad was outstanding, as was a salmon entrée and stuffed tomato appetizer...bread was delicious..waiter was terrific, handling the entire dining room on a Monday night (6-7 tables) very capably

Love the food! However, I don’t understand why the service is so slow and inattentive.
Waited 20 minutes for a waiter to take our order. Took 90 minutes for entrees to arrive.

The food is always great here - thoughtful combinations artfully prepared. "Cozy" space means tables are close to each other, but the noise level remains moderate. Service is attentive with occasional minor lapses (e.g. our table was set without salt or oil which we had to ask for). This was our third meal here and we will certainly be back for more.

The food is fabulous, everything tastes fresh and homemade.
Service isn’t the best , extremely slow and I find unless you are a regular there they tend to ignore you but if you hours to linger over dinner I highly suggest it mainly since the food is fabulous

I ordered the special that was described differently by the waiter and when I received it and questioned him he said that I was wrong- thought I was getting a white Sauce but it was in a marinara sauce- wouldn’t have ordered it if it was a red sauce- so it was disappointing
