Named after the son of the owner, Georgio’s Pizzeria and Bar is Bangor’s best kept secret hidden away at 12-14 Holyhead Road; behind The Vintage Shop and Kai’s Barbershop. Georgio’s is the newest restaurant on the block, upper Bangor’s own mini Portmeirion is back! Opening hours are typically from 9am – 11pm, yet this may be due to change so remember to keep your eyes peeled. For now it’s time to escape, sit back and relax in this glorious setting.
Owners Richard and Sarah have transformed this space into a glorious Italian restaurant which they hope to expand into a part of the community. Speaking with Sarah, the obvious elements of a family restaurant are present, yet that’s not all they offer! As previous owners and creators of Cocktails on Wheels, behind the bar is their usual scene with thoughts of combining the two.
Also in the foreseeable future, they’ll be opening up the courtyard to make a mellow area, perfect for those who wish to relax or do work, WiFi equipped and their coffee machine at the ready. There is also talk of opening their services to delivery while also looking into Deliveroo aspects. Looking forward to events nights and catering some too, the owners are excited at the prospects ahead. As of 22nd November, open mic nights will begin to get involved message the Facebook page or talk to them directly!
Their menu at this time consists of a selection of authentic classic thin crust pizzas cooked in a stone base gas pizza cooker, perfection. The pepperoni is a beautiful blend of authentic pepperoni, a selection of cheeses elegantly melted with a sprinkling of oregano. Together this presented a melt in your mouth experience and I can personally guarantee you will not be disappointed! The only advice I can give is as these pizzas are made to order, try not to burn your mouth as all these pizzas are served fresh out the oven!
The 4 cheese was also a personal highlight as despite drowning in the cheese, it was balanced accordingly as the blue cheese added a real kick of flavour while complimenting the base sauce. The addition of the saltiness from the ricotta was extremely pleasing to the taste buds, which is not always traditionally seen in UK pizzas.
Their offer currently of Pizza and a Pint for £8 is not to be missed so be sure to pop on down. A dessert menu filled with some enchanting sweet treats tempts the sweet tooth to finish the meal of. Judging by the dedication and hard work Sarah and Richard have already put into the place, it will become extremely popular addition to the community and surrounding areas.
