“Gratifying Giorgio's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Our first visit to this restaurant was entirely favourable, the friendly efficient staff, the tasty food in good sized portions all added up to a delightful meal. My wife Eileen was more than satisfied with her tasty scallops and sizeable fillet of sea bass that I helped to eat. My sardine starter was attractively presented with them being beheaded, boned and butterflied, and the Dover sole cooked to perfection. Only one of us had room for a dessert, no guessing who !!!! We will certainly return

“Really Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

A great Italian restaurant with excellent food, friendly staff and good service. It's a little pricey but on par with what you'd pay for a decent lunch in the Square Mile. Although it's a basement restaurant it's surprisingly well lit and the acoustics are pretty good so you don't have to shout at your lunch companions to be heard!

“Lovely people...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

A small non pretentious Italian eatery in the heart of the city. The mozzarella and tomato starter was to die for, the chicken pie was great the lovely Waiters attentive and the lemon cello you finish off with takes you to the south of Italy. A lovely spot.... But quite pricey.

“Expensive but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

The walk down to the subterranean restaurant is not particularly appealing or inviting but when you get there its fine. I went for a business lunch and was impressed by the service, albeit the restaurant was pretty quiet at 1215ish on a Thursday. I had scallops to start and grilled sea bass main. My companion had fried mozzarella and cod. I fully approved. But just as well it was a business lunch as it was far too expensively priced for personal account.

“Once a regular always a regular.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

I am assessing the restaurant for what it is, a small Italian in the heart of the City of London catering for the business fraternity, hence my five stars. It has no pretensions as a rival to the ‘Ivy’ or other such grand restaurants, it is there to offer Italian cuisine to businessman and their colleagues who want a place to talk business and have large meals with lots of wine available; Giorgio’s delivers just that. The more you visit and get to know the personnel, the more you will want to return as nothing is too much trouble and if it not on the menu, Giorgio will ‘try’ to produce it for you. Of course it is not cheap, given its location and clientele it is catering for a substantial business account market and it tries to balance that with large helpings of whatever you order; I doubt anyone has ever left the restaurant hungry! Giorgio’s makes a refreshing change from the chain restaurants in the area where the ‘personal touch’ is definitely never on the menu.
