A new Italian restaurant hailing from Mexico City will make its way to Miami next week.

Giorgina is the work of Grupo Mandolina, which will deliver a stateside outpost of its Mexico City establishment, Mandolina, to Wynwood. The restaurant is set to open on Tuesday, November 21.

A popular dining destination since its opening in 2020, Mandolina — and its new sister establishment — aim to take diners on a sensory journey to the shores of Italy's Amalfi Coast. In Wynwood, that means a roaming, open-air space with a citrus-toned color palette and foliage-covered ceiling displaying more than 5,000 lemons on vines.

The menu, under the helm of executive chef Hector Caspio and chef consultant Federico Tischler, uses coastal Italian classics, with a few contemporary twists, as inspiration.

Dishes begin with crudo options and appetizers like grilled octopus served over cannellini beans and continue with pasta like the eponymous "Pasta Giorgina" spaghettini in a fresh lemon sauce. Entrées range from whole roasted orata (Mediterranean bream) topped with garlic confit to veal scalloppini served over basmati rice on custom china plates by Adriana Castro.

Signature salads, pizzettes, and housemade desserts round out the menu, but guests can also expect to find dedicated brunch items served on Saturday and Sunday that spotlight coffees and pastries alongside breakfast-only staples like a croissant egg Benedict over pastrami and chilaquiles.

Giorgina. 2700 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 786-542-5185; Monday through Sunday 5 to 11 p.m., and brunch service Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
