Famiglia Giorgio (la)
Famiglia Giorgio (La) restaurant in the North End draws a huge crowd; it is common to see lines outside on weekends. The decor in this small restaurant is sparse with tables are packed together. But the portions are plentiful, with plates piled high with pasta at inexpensive prices. This restaurant offers the standard Italian fare with pasta, Chicken Parmesan and seafood. There is also a Newbury Street location. The restaurant serves beer, wine and cordials.
LOVE THIS PLACE! Have been going there since I moved to the Boston area from Pittsburgh 19 years ago. Have always had great service, excellent food, awesome bar menu drinks and great prices for a ton of food! I bring my friends and relatives there when they visit and they ask to return when they come. They recently remodeled and it has become even more cozy! Love the atmosphere, wall painting and the authentic feel of the restuarant. Their lunch specials are inexpensive and plentiful! Just celebrated my wedding there last week with my mother and bride! No complaints! Thanks La Famiglia Giorgio, see ya in a September!
Ask our cab drive to recommend a restaurant in the North End. He took us to La Famiglia and told you is was the best place where the locals go. The food was the best Italian we have ever had. Awesome place that we look forward to going back to.
Monday thru Friday there is a lunch special for $5.95. The specials change daily, I had a combo of 5 Italian dishes which included tortolini alfredo, spinich lasagna, ziti with meat sauce, eggplant parm and a boneless chicken. I've eaten plenty of Italian through the years and found this place to be delightful for the price. The sauce was very good and there was not scimping on the cheesy ingredients. When I come back to Boston to visit my son, I will definitely be visiting La Familiglia's.
We ate there during the recent St Anthony's feast since it was too hot and uncomfortable to eat outside.
The meal took forever to show up and I now know why! Ther were busy overcooking the pasta and the calamari! I had the Frutti deMari and they did a nice job on the garlic and oil (though a little salty) but they completely blew it on the pasta and the calamari. They were both extremely overcooked. The calamari was not edible and like eating rubberbands. As for the pasta, they do a better job in in elementary school cafeteria. They should be ashamed of the way they cook pasta. There is no way that they are italian! The pasta served with the other dishes were overcooked the same as mine even though we all had different types of pasta. I would not send my worst enemy there. This place would be panned if it was in a mall food court so I do not understand how it survives here.
DO NOT EAT THERE!
I'm not sure what all the negative reviewers are talking about. This place was awesome! Having dined at all the Boston dives and fancy-shmancy ristorantes, I find La Famiglia to stand on its own as a no-frills, good food, better bargain place. Try the lobster ravioli with pancetta in a cream sauce or the Frutti Di Mare seafood over linguine with olive oil and garlic. The tirimisu is a satisfying finish and the house wine was good as well. The wait staff, despite everyone else's reviews, were phenomenol -- engaging, hysterically funny, and responsive. We had no complaints whatsoever. Go in with reasonable expectations of what a family-style, good bargain ristorante is, and you won't be disappointed. Not at all. Five stars, here.
As a vegetarian it's difficult to go out to eat, fortunately MOST italian choices can be served in a vegetarian manner - but it's rare that you actually find options that are catered for a veggie... the eggplant is melt in your mouth delicious, the portions are hysterical - but make for excellent left overs the next day. I love everything there, soup to nuts!
My partner & I decided to try this restaurant last Sunday, July 9. The veal saltimbocca we both ordered was good, with a very tasty wine and butter sauce. The veal medallions were tender. The servings, however, were heavy on the pasta. The pasta was probably about 80% of the dish!!! The pino grigio I had was a rip-off for $6 a glass (by gawd, one can get a decent bottle of table wine for $8); it was watery!
Similar to the experience of one reviewer from another website, the waitress we had was rude and nasty. The restaurant advertises that they give 20% discount for students and teachers with ID. I showed my teacher's ID after we got the bill and the waitress told me in a very abrasive manner that I should have shown it to her before we ordered. NOW, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT I HAVE TO DO THIS WHEN THERE IS NOTHING INSIDE THAT RESTAURANT, EVEN IN THE MENU, THAT TELLS ME I SHOULD DO THAT. To make matters worse, the discount I got was only 6% of the total bill, WAY, WAY BELOW what they claim to be offering.
So, we are not going back to this restaurant. To La Famiglia Giorgio: you just lost a pair of customers who dine out at least twice a week. (We will reconsider if you get rid of that nasty waitress.) And I would like to let you know that our World Cup experience at the North End was tainted by our experience at your place.
