Italian
It’s the shape that strikes you first, a series of tall alcoves in the basement of historic Leadenhall Market in the City of London. Yet it’s anything but dark. Smooth white walls, matching table linen and spotlighting create a bright, private space well-suited to confidential high-powered lunches. The menu’s Italian, a skillful combination of simple modern Italian and traditional regional recipes, to be precise. Specials change every few days, but the pasta is always homemade. Excellent fish dishes. Diverse wine list, in both price and character. Professional service.

A great authentic Italian in the heart of the City. I used to go there on business and chose it for a pre Christmas family get together this year.

Quality is great, service is friendly and informed. Can be a bit pricey but that goes with the location and food quality.

12 December. Booked for 11 people attending a work's team event.

A great selection of beautifully cooked and presented food.

Would certainly recommend and would certainly return for a further evening of delicious Italian food.

I have used Georgio's a number of times to bring business associates there and they have never let me down. The service, food and ambiance are all very good and I am comfortable with taking people there.

I love coming here! Each time I am in London, for business or otherwise, I make it a point to eat here. The burrata appetizer is my all-time favourite! Everything else on the menu is pretty good, but you should give the daily special "presented" as you walk by, a try. The staff is friendly and attentive. The owner is warm and welcoming! Make sure you stop in!

Great find - very authentic Italian restaurant, good service, good prices and good food. Nice and quiet on a Friday evening when everyone else has left the City - I suspect it does a busy lunch trade! Will certainly be returning.

A lovely little Italian that serves all the usual favourites that you would expect. Service was excellent and food was good. I also recommended it to the in-laws for a gathering with their friends they really enjoyed it too.

Love this restaurant. It has a nice relaxed atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food and service are excellent. The Smoked Salmon starter was delicious as was the Veal Milanese main course. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone and I've already booked my next visit!

I booked this restaurant for a recent business lunch for four people.

The menu is excellent, a great showcase of Italian food. The service was great, very prompt and good recommendations. I had the lobster linguine which was delicious, there are a great range of seafood pasta options. My colleague had duck, which looked great.

We would definitely recommend this restaurant and the meal ended with lemon cello as any good meal should.

The food is just great! The atmosphere is like in Italy. In terms of price around £35 pp (starter, main, desert) excluding wine. The portion are good, for me main + desert were more then enough. I would definitely come back!

Had many good meals at Giorgios, and couldn’t fault the food this time. Only slight issue we had is we were seated in an area with a low ceiling and the acoustics were such that it was very loud and we struggled a bit to hear each other over a business lunch. Not the staffs fault but still was difficult to hold a business meeting in that spot. Table was on the right hand seating area as you enter the main restaurant. Otherwise great food as usual.

Really genuine and friendly welcome with a 'glint in the eye' but v professional. Recommendations right from the start and seated warmly with immediate attention from the service waiters. Food great. Simple - eg not too mucked about with being fine ingredients. Italian experience at its best.

Open all day so not rushed. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting very good Italian food with Italian, proud but polite, people and the ambience and 'buzz' of the restaurant is an attraction in itself.

Fantastic and whilst I don't live in London, will definitely be returning. Giorgio is now on my restaurants 'top list'...

Good food, but we were seated near the corridor, so quite noisy and busy.

The quality of the food is good, if a little overpriced. £11 for 5 stems of asparagus with some cheese on is a bit steep.

Service was brisk and slightly uncomfortable, as if we were putting the waiting staff out.

Overall I'd recommend for business meals, but not for a romantic or intimate dinner.
