San Giorgio Bigarello, until 2018 as San Giorgio di Mantova (Mantovano: San Sòrs) is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Mantua in the Italian region Lombardy, located about 130 kilometres (81 mi) east of Milan and about 3 kilometres (2 mi) east of Mantua.

The municipality of San Giorgio di Mantova contains the frazioni of Caselle, Casette, Ghisiolo, Mottella (which is the municipality seat), Tripoli, Villanova De Bellis, and Villanova Maiardina. The commune's name refers to an older borough which, during the Napoleonic Wars, was destroyed to make room to fortifications defending Mantua.
