I've eaten here several times since it opened last year and it is probably my favourite restaurant in Dublin. The food is amazing but what stands out more than anything is the service, the staff are fantastic.

Excellent meal - have had dinner and lunch in the last two weeks and both were excellent.
A little gem in the heart of Ranelagh - well done Giorgio and Giorgio

Amazing food and warm service. Best Italian in Dublin at the moment, authentic Italian food. Had the prawn linguini this time and it is off the charts. The quality of the ingredients and the skills in the kitchen really shines throughout the menu and the front of house staff will put a smile on your face.

Lovely small restaurant with excellent food. I took my elderly parents here and although they lived the food, service and general environment my hard of hearing father struggled with the noise of the restaurant, the acoustics were very poor. I’ll definitely be back, but probably not with my father.

Everything was great except the noise. Sometimes it was really loud so we couldn’t hear each other...
But the food was delicious and the staff wee really nice!

Can’t remember the last time I was this impressed trying a restaurant for the first time. Food was outstanding, so authentic and arguably the best you can get in Dublin.
Giorgio Senior exuded that great charm that the Italians excel at. A fantastic, casual, neighbourhood restaurant. Will be back over and over again.

Fantastic menu. Between the two of us we got 2 starters, 2 entrees and 1 dessert. Every dish was superb. The tables are close to each other and it can get a little loud but other than the noise I have nothing but good things to say about this place. A little taste of Italy in Dublin.

This is a super and authentic Italian run by a very experienced team. Excellent food, service, and wine list of gems if you like Italian wine. Only downside is the noise.

Gorgeous, really tasty true Italian food. Service was good but when it started to get busy you could see the staff was struggling slightly. However I would recommend and go back again.

Gigi is a real find. The food is spectacular with the mozzarella a particular stand out. Service is excellent (ask for recommendations) and there are interesting specials. Ignore people who carp about a small menu. It’s a small restaurant so couldn’t sustain a large menu of this quality. All around this restaurant deserves to do well.

It was like stepping back into Italy with being greeted in Italian at the door. The staff made us feel very welcome. Excellent charcuterie board with a large selection. The home made pasta was very good, not to mention the panna cotta and tiramisu. I have already recommended to friends and colleagues. My only slight complaint would be that the tables are too close together and it makes it very difficult to get to the back seat. When the people arrived at the table next to us they knocked over a glass of water on our table due to that, which could have landed in our guest's lap did he not respond so quickly.

Lovely menu and we really enjoyed what we ordered. Great wine list as well. Staff all friendly and nice. Tables very close to one another - at one stage a diner beside us pushed her table almost right up to ours which felt a little claustrophobic but otherwise fab evening here and I will definitely be back!

Very poor gluten free options with no gluten free pasta ! In addition when ordering a starter meat and cheese board which the menu clearly stated was coeliac adaptable there was no gluten free bread or crackers available !! Overall I thought poor value for money with very small portions. Seating was cramped with tables squeezed together. I got to hear more of the conversation from the table beside me then from my dining companions. Disappointing experience from such an experienced restauranteur.
