Located next to the Cottage Road Cinema a few minutes’ walk from Leeds Metropolitan University is Giorgio’s, the latest offering from George and Vasoulla Psarias, owners of the well-reputed and award-winning Olive Tree Restaurants across Leeds.
The restaurant is a modern and contemporary dining space with crisp neutrals and bright zings of colour that creates a comfortable and fresh place to enjoy the Italian cuisine on offer. The restaurant offers a lounge area incorporating a bar, a larger main dining room and smaller dining room to the rear perfect for work or family celebrations. Adorning the walls are notes to Italy, with pictures and Italian artefacts that capture the essence of the beautiful country.
The food on offer is typically Mediterranean and with the knowledge gained from years of restaurant experience, the team at Giorgio’s understand what makes for an Italian meal as well as having great knowledge of their own dishes, flavours and textures. There is plenty of choice at Giorgio’s with a variety of pizza, pasta and specials as well as catering well for vegetarians. Fish lovers are also in good company and the Smoked Fish Platter from the chef’s specials menu is a great starter and is perfectly accompanied with bread and dipping oils. For mains, classic dishes such as pizza and pastas are perfectly executed with the Rustica Pizza and Ricotta Cannelloni Fiorentina taking pride of place.
Deserts sit in a strategically inviting place in a glass refrigerated unit with classics such as Tiramisu and Gooey chocolate inviting guests to go that one course further.
