This place was an absolute delight, quaint and homely inside with some of the freshest seafood on display as you enter the restaurant. We started with a mixed seafood platter to start with and were provided with 8 different starters, reminded me of Tapas from Spain, all were fantastic, our waiter matched this up with some fantastic wine which was...

Fritto misto (fried seafood and small fish) was excellent. The anti-pasti is so varied and prepared for the day. Very friendly atmosphere, family run business since generations. The restaurant dates from the sixties.

This was our second trip to Carnival and our second visit to Giorgio. In a town full of gastronomic delights this restaurant is a must if you like fish.The menu is varied and the local prawn dish is superb. The first courses are huge beware!The white wine we chose again and again was unbeatable. Make sure you have a reservation... More

Viareggio is not at its most popular but in May, the lunch at Giorgio's was elegant and uncrowded. The dishes were attractive, the wine crisp and service most attentive. The restaurant is only a couple of blocks from the sea and easy to include during a 2 or 3 hour stroll around the town.

Went here recently and simply loved the food. The seafood antipasti were wonderful - thin slices of raw fish, raw sweet shrimp, and lots of other inventive delicacies. The pasta was perfect and we had some little fried fish and octopus to end with. Many reviewers seemed to be upset about the service. Our service was just fine. I did... More

First, let me start by saying that I have read the other reviews and have to explain why some customers may have felt slighted. In Italy, restaurants require reservations. Especially a place of this level, not to have their customers experience being turned away, insists on reservations. So if you show up unexpected not only will you be disappointed but... More

We were disappointed in this restaurant- service was far too slow to start and far too brusque in its delivery. Waiters were arrogant , rushed and impatient and did nothing to create good atmosphere. Fish was totally fresh and we were served a nice starter but neither of us enjoyed our main courses. Desert consisted of a pear a not... More

Ok, get away from those other places that taper to American tourists (and their palettes) who think they're Italian, and go to Giorgio. They suffer no fools here and, having no reservation, we were granted a table only on agreeing to come back at 10:30pm. The food was exquisite, the service familiar - as it seems that most customers have... More
