Giorgio Brasserie serving quality Italian

The Italian restaurant scene in Sydney is continuously improving, with many quality options available making their own pasta. Giorgio Brasserie 580 George St, is another to add to the list.

 

Not only do they have fresh pasta, the menu is made to order. Giorgio’s use the freshest of ingredients, which are prepared as you place your order. This restaurant chooses quality over quantity. The menu is simple, but done well. The wait staff charismatic, looking to deliver service on par with the food. For Chef Mario Percuoco cooking is in the blood, being a third generation chef. Mario sets a high standard and looks to deliver quality to the table with every plate of food. The venue is licensed, why not enjoy a glass of wine to enhance the meal.

The Zucchini flowers are recommended for a starter. The batter nice and crisp, stuffed with a creamy ricotta and the basil providing the flavour. The grilled prawns another good starter to share, nice and simple. Shelled prawns with the tail on, grilled and served with some crisp grilled prosciutto.

It is hard to pass up the porchetta at any Italian restaurant. Being cooked for four hours, which not only makes for tender juicy pork it also intensifies the flavours top that with some crackling and you be left wanting more.
