La Famiglia Giorgio’s – North End, Boston, MA


Among all of the Italian restaurants located in the North End, La Famiglia Giorgio’s might just be one of the best. Known for their giant portions, it’s a prime spot to have a full-fledged Italian feast with family or a nice date spot. It’s also a prime spot to have a meal before a Celtics or Bruins game, as it’s only a 10-minute walk to the TD Garden.

We went to La Famiglia Giorgio’s on a recent Tuesday. Upon arriving, we were able to get seated right away upstairs. La Famiglia Giorgio’s has tons of open seating which spans two floors. The ambiance resembles what you might find in old Tuscany Italy, it’s that authentic.

Two things that make La Famiglia Giorgio’s a great Italian restaurant is their attentive service and the quality of food. Our waitress was so attentive that we literally never had an empty glass of water! And the food we ordered was delicious, and “as good as what mom makes”, or so they say. We started by splitting a Caesar salad which was good, but instead of using freshly grated parmesan, there was powdered parmesan which was noticeable.

Our orders arrived shortly after. Samantha ended up going with the pumpkin ravioli – homemade ravioli stuffed with pumpkin and cinnamon sautéed in sweet and creamy marsala sauce. I ended up going with the Veal Saltimbocca with mushrooms which were covered in plenty of buttery goodness in the form of butter wine sage sauce topped with prosciutto and melted mozzarella. As I mentioned, the portions are huge, so we each got about halfway through before calling it quits for the night. The good news is we had delicious leftovers for the next few days.

If you are looking for a nice Italian restaurant in the North End, La Famiglia Giorgio’s is worth consideration. Go check it out for yourself!
