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

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.

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
