SUSHI CONFIDENTIAL AND GIORGIO’S ITALIAN GRILL & PIZZERIA COMING TO DOWNTOWN MORGAN HILL
Morgan Hill, CA (September 3, 2021): On September 1, 2021, the City Morgan Hill announced that Sushi Confidential had signed a lease at 17340 Monterey Rd., the former Prova Restaurant space, and Giorgio’s Italian Grill & Pizzeria had signed a lease at 17380 Monterey Rd. at the southeast corner of Monterey Road and Second Street.
Giorgio’s Italian Food is a family-owned business that started in 1959. The original “Giorgio’s” in the Foxworthy Shopping Center started in San Jose. The family has operated several restaurants over the years. Today, the D’Ambrosio family has restaurants in San Jose, Milpitas, and a new “Frankie, Johnnie & Luigi Too!” under construction on El Camino in Mountain View, which will be completed in 2023. The Morgan Hill unit will be called “Giorgio’s Italian Grill & Pizzeria” and will open in 2022.
Giorgio’s founding family also has a New York-style sausage factory in Sunnyvale that is the largest manufacturer of fresh Italian sausage on the West Coast. The company is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year, and their product can be found in most major retailers.
“The D’Ambrosio family has always admired Morgan Hill as a community and the downtown as one of the hidden gems in the Bay Area. Additionally, we believe this will be a good location as many of our long-time customers and supporters have moved to South County. We look forward to becoming engrained in the community, and the downtown,” Mike D’Ambrosio, Giorgio’s co-owner, said.
“Downtown Morgan Hill is flourishing with investment, new mixed-use projects, entertainment venues, a burgeoning restaurant scene, growing public art amenities, new parks, plazas, and trails,” said Matt Mahood, Economic Development Director for the City of Morgan Hill. “Even during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Downtown Morgan Hill has been able to remain a thriving district with regional and national recognition for offering the best outdoor dining space in the Bay Area and having one of the best vegan restaurants in the nation. We are excited to add Sushi Confidential and Giorgio’s to our culinary offerings,” he added.
