I have reviewed Giuseppe's a couple of times and all my good reviews still stand, however, having just been back again I HAVE to recommend you try the Fish. I usually don't bother with fish but this time I tried the Fishcake starter. What a tremendous thing that is. Honestly the best fishcakes I... read more

We were quite disappointed and perplexed by this restaurant. Only one pasta dish on the menu and that proved to be very, very average. Very mundane menu. I have read the other reviews which mainly seem to like this place, but I found it nothing special.

Delicious fresh food - wonderful choice of freshly-caught fish cooked simply and unpretentiously. Will definitely return and recommend this restaurant to others.

Giuseppe and his staff, have once again made an evening out into a warm friendly and tasty experience. From the time you enter ( we were actually greeted like old friends as we approached ), through the pre-meal drinks and on through the evening ( this is NOT and in, eat and out type restaurant ),you need to put aside...

This was not the restaurant I expected from reviews. The food was fine and the service was good but it didn't excite us and the menu was a bit predictable. Nothing really wrong but didn't really light our fire.

At last. I've been searching and searching for a neighbourhood Italian restaurant for... for.... decades (seemingly). I have a favourite in New Jersey (too far to go on a Friday night) but mostly I am forced to endure the horror that is the chain Italian restaurant - the main culprits being Zizis, Pizza Express and Ask. Having lived in Falmouth... More

Visited Giuseppe's restaurant at the beginning of our stay in Mawnan Smith, and couldn't wait to return, which we duly did, to experience more of his wonderful cooking and the friendly, relaxed atmosphere. If you think that Italian cuisine is all pasta and pizza, a visit here will really open up new horizons for you, Giuseppe is a master of... More

My wife and I visited for evening dinner whilst staying in the area. All our courses were well cooked, well presented and delicious. The waitress was most attentive and helpful and the owner was very pleasant.

Before I start This is a must if you are in the Area. This is a traditional Italian none of this chain nonsense here. We had a first class greeting by the chef and his family and staff and nothing was too much trouble. We all enjoyed the night the food was 1st class and homemade .....ben fatto molte grazie.
