Most Unorganized Restaurant. After taking a 30 minute cab ride to the middle of nowhere, one would think that this restaurant would have your table waiting, if you made a reservation. Well that is just no true. They clearly overbook, so in essence they drag you down there thinking they will honor your reservation, but in fact the reservation is meaningless. It seems that our party and several others were all waiting for at least an hour for their tables too. They probably do the same drill every week. After an hour we left, and I would never come back again. 1 our is just too much to wait especially in NYC with thousand of other resturants that have good service!
Octopus lover rates octopus (grilled) as best ever. Complementing great wine, unpretentious yet attentive service, nice ambiance and generally wonderful, fresh-tasting food, we savored an amazing octopus. We have travelled the world eating at top restaurants, even travelling to the world capital of octopus, Gytheon, Greece. However, we have never had better than the tender, char-grilled octopus at Giorgione. Its only been a few weeks since, but we're thinking of going back tomorrow!
A Workday Oasis. I've dined here for lunch with clients numerous times, and it has never disappointed. While I'm not partial to precious-sized pizzas, theirs make a perfect appetizer for a small group. Very tasty. It's the risotto that keeps me coming back, although my friends tell me other dishes are very good, as well. Desserts? Divine. And with a very good cup of coffee, you'll trip out of there feeling like something special.
Great time. Had a surprised birthday dinner here for a friend and it was great from the get go. Great wine list and the seafood platter was superb. The thin crust pizzas were also fantastic. Definately everyone had a good time and will be a return customer!
Perfection!. One of the best meals ever. The restaurant is cool but has the warm feel of a neighborhood restuarant. The waitstaff could not have been more friendly. Listen to their reccomendations! The food is TO DIE FOR! The raw bar selection combination was great! Nice presenttation of raw oysters,clams,and crab. Beautiful and delicious. Now, they encouraged me to have the octopus appetizer with olive oil and lemon. I was wary. I never eat octopus. But, It is NOT to be missed. It was tender not chewy and tasty as anything i've ever had. Still dreaming about it. And, the pizzas! Incredible thin crust pizzas. Had the 4 cheese and it was amazing. Also, for entree dont miss the meatballs. Served alone in red sauce and are the tastiest meatballs i've ever had. The desserts are great and order the espresso coffee with scoop of vailla ice cream. Perfect ending!
I give it a 8!. Went to this restaurant to have a Holiday dinner. We were a group of 15. We were greeted promply upon arrival. We hanged out at the bar and drank a delicious red wine which the bartender recommended (He said it was from his home town). Then we sat at the table and had margarita pizza which I thought was average. Nothing out of the ordinary. The green salad was good and I enjoyed the bread but which it was warm. I had the meatballs which were to amazing. I almost liked my plate. Overall I enjoyed here and would go back.
TAKE IT TO GO!. On the night of election tuesday, I decided to distract myself by going out to dinner with my partner. I had read earlier that Giorgio Armani had recomended "Girgione" because of it's true italian food, so we gave it a try. We were greatly disapointed. The food was good, and that was all. We sat next to a fireplace that had no fire. Our waiter stayed at the bar all night and ignored us. He was very audibly having a better time than we were! We felt bad to interupt him for a drink. When I asked about a manager, I was told he could not be found?!? Mabey we'd be treated respectively if we were as famous as Armani?
Now this is a recipe for success. Step one foot in this restaurant and you'll be glad you decided to trek all the way down to Tribeca. The sheer smell of a wood burning stove in the front of the restaurant was enough to put a smile on my face, but the night only got better. Service was attentive and curteous, decor was simple but chic (without trying to be), and the food was near perfect. Take it from an Italian -- THIS food is worth it. Great wine selection. I recommend the pasta with duck and chestnut sauce, and the pumpkin risotto, as well as the pizzas -- you will not be disappointed. One downside: a bit noisy if you have more than 4 people in your party. Mr. DeLuca sure knows what he's doing - this restaurant is a gem.
Great experience. One of the most beautiful restaurants in the city! Great atmosphere, makes you never wanna leave! The food is fantastic, and the waitstaff and management dedicated and entertaining. Makes you feel at home immediately. Not only good for dinner, but also bruch and parties. Do yourself a favor and go there ASAP!
