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

The food was excellent however the service left something to be desired. We were a party of two, showed up on time for our reservation, were seated promptly but it ended there. The waiter asked what kind of water we wanted, we told him and he disappeared. Fifteen minutes later we had to flag down the "other" of two waiters who told us it wasn't his table but he'd bring us water. Upon coming back with the water he tells us he is now our waiter. Slow start but ultimately turned out ok.

You don't keep going back to the same restaurant if it isn't exceptional. Giorga does not disappoint. Some of our faves are the cod, the ridiculously good pork chop and the fusilli with shrimp and zucchini among many others. Service always friendly and on point. Food cooked to order. Real good spot.

The food is always excellent here! The long stemmed artichoke salad was very tasty, as were the cockles. I had the barramundi over escarole which was wonderful. So was the pork chop. The server opened outer wine and brought us our bottle of sparkling water, but didn’t pour either which was surprising and not up to par with service we are used to, but other than that was just ok on this occasion.

Mediterranean salad was wonderful to share. I had the pasta with calimari which was tasty and had a little kick from hot peppers. My husband had a seafood pasta dish with chick pea sauce and was very satisfied.

Always good here.

Tables are too close together making it almost impossible for us to leave the dining room. The man behind me was large and he kept his chair out making it tight for me. On the way out I had to ask a woman to pull her chair in so I could get by. Again. Tables are too close together for comfortable dining

Very disappointed. Had heard so many good things. Tried twice before to get a reservation so thought this place must be great. Finally got reservation through open table. Mentioned this was our sons 10th wedding anniversary. We arrived with six adults and two children as was stated in reservation. Tables were so packed together we could barely get into seats. Noise level was so high we could only speak to those next to us. We arrived at 6:30 and waited forever to even get bread and water. The waiter took our wine to open and forgot to bring it back til we finally asked for it. We asked to please bring something for children to eat or snack on. That never happened til our food finally arrived. The waiter never even acknowledged the anniversary in spite of my noting it as the reason for our being there; the champagne : card and gift. Dead giveaways. My dish was so salty I could not eat it and I noticed no one finished their dishes except the salmon which I’m told was delicious. This was doubly disappointing because our expectation were so high. Since we eat out five out of seven nights a week I realize one dish can easily go wrong. Or you can occasionally get a bad waiter. But to miss on so many levels......

I have been to Giorgia's many times and have never been disappointed. The menu is varied and the specials are "special". I had a dish of papardelle with shrimp and mushrooms in a lemon butter sauce that was outstanding. Also my appetizer of stuffed zucchini was as always a great choice. I am looking forward to returning to this restaurant.

We are never disappointed with this bring your own wine restaurant. The homemade cauliflower ravioli sampler is freshly made and so delicious. My husband enjoyed his juicy porkchop and I loved the lasagne. The layers were so thin with a nice meat sauce. Our server was friendly and so helpful when I was trying to decide which dinner to select. This continues to be a favorite restaurant of ours.
