Giorgio's Restaurant Review

: Owner Giorgio Kawas grew up in Northern Italy and that region's culinary heritage is the foundation of his namesake establishment, along with French and Northwest influences. The quiet, sophisticated dining room with black and white floors and butter-colored walls, is both comforting and elegant. Starters may include a version of Caesar salad made with romaine, bottarga and Parmesan, or braised artichokes with buffalo mozzarella and pistachio oil. Try any of the pastas, all handmade daily, such as beet ravioli with watercress and smoked ricotta salata, or garganelli with caramelized garlic, asparagus and forest mushrooms. We also suggest the lamb, chicken and fish dishes. A favorite is black bass with a lemony artichoke purée, sunchokes and nettles. For dessert, sample the cinnamon donuts with homemade ice cream. The 75-bottle wine list features vintages from France, Italy and Oregon. Pearl District shoppers and art viewers will be tempted by the late-afternoon bar menu with its tasty bites at reasonable prices. Service is professional and personal.
