"I learned an original style of cooking; a combination from my grandmother, mother, school, and the trade."
Giorgio Todisco was born in Bergamo Italy, and has 26 years experience in the restaurant business. His earliest influences began in the kitchen watching his mother and grandmother prepare many meals and celebrations for family and friends. He attended the "Institute Professional for Hotels" (“Scuola Alberghiera”) in San Pellegrino. He has worked in restaurants in Bergamo, Switzerland, and the Florida Keys as well as Greenville. Before returning to Greenville to open "Trattoria Giorgio", Giorgio was chef and part owner of "La Cantina", a restaurant in Bergamo.
Open for more than a decade, Trattoria Giorgio enjoys a friendly experienced staff, several of whom have been with the restaurant since the beginning. We are committed to the highest food quality. We serve only the finest meats available and use the best authentic Italian ingredients where possible.
When asked about what Giorgio likes best about the restaurant business:
"I enjoy bringing hospitality to people. When you see people in the restaurant listening to good music, eating good food, enjoying the atmosphere.. that makes for a special event anytime."
"We just spent my wife's birthday here. I gotta agree with previous review that this place is a true hidden gem in Greenville. Very small, cozy & romantic. The food will be some of the best food you will have had in your lifetime. Everything is amazing from the bread to the mootz to the entrees. " John - 5 Stars
