If you been to a restaurant in Tuscany, you'll recognize this place. The chef (all the dishes) and his mom (desserts, Sunday sauce and occasionally specials) never fail in their selection and the delivery- taste, presentation and service. Friendly place with lots of locals. Highly recommend it- been going there with friends and family since it opened.

Celebrating two birthdays. Found this place through Open Table. Our server Steve was great and knew the menu very well. Everyone enjoyed their meals and commented on how fresh the pasta and sauces were. Will try and come back when we are in the area.

Showed up for a 730 resi at 750. Totally get it. We were late however 4 or 5 tables were empty and we stood for 30 min while we were told they were waiting for another table to get up. After 40 min I asked what was wrong with the empty
Tables and the waiter said oh I didn’t know they were available. As the waiter promptly brought us to our 40 min later table that was empty the entire time we passed the owners of the restaurant that couldn’t smile it say hello as We passed them. The food isn’t that good for the attitude of the staff and needless to say we won’t be going back. Undici while more expensive makes me feel better about dropping a $30 pasta. Cheers. No wonder why you can’t move past the kids gymnasium. Total pass.

By far the best veal saltimbocca I have ever had. All of our food was fantastic. Our waiter was not great, but the food was outstanding and we will go back. It does take some time for the meals to arrive, but SO worth the wait!!

My wife and I enjoyed it immensely. Some of the best food we've had. Fresh and perfectly cooked. Attentive service. A bit loud but we've seen much worse. Small and somewhat intimate. Would go again many times!

This place never fails. The service was right on but not overbearing and the food was great. They have a printed menu but I think their specials come close to numbering the items on the menu.

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.
