Enjoyed our meal

We ate dinner here after the University of Kentucky Graduation. There were 10 of us and we were a bit crammed into 2 tables pushed together. The bread was wonderful...good crusty Italian bread with butter. I ate salmon with a side of zucchini. Nicely flavor and thick juicy piece of fish. Others... read more

A nice restaurant with good food and great atmosphere. The entertainment was great with a one person band who played every instrument you could image.

We drove by the little drive that leads to the restaurant twice (Siri didn't quite find it exactly). Keep a sharp eye out for the sign - small and hidden by the trees - you will not see Giuseppe's from Nicholasville Rd. KEEP LOOKING! The food was excellent. This will become our go-to place when we travel to Lexington. You... More

There is nothing great about this place. The food is mediocre at best. They boast about hearing the music throughout. False I heard conversations of the guests. Unfortunately my girlfriend didn't get reservations. Maybe I could say the music was good. The food was not worth the price. You could get just as good quality at a Fazoli's. So if... More

This restaurant is always consistently good. Food is always great and service is always attentive. I enjoy the music as well. Great varied items on the menu, so something for everyone

Giuseppe's is a great location for a special dinner. The ambiance is very romantic and the service is top-notch. The food is clearly prepared by a chef with lots of care and attention to detail. The wine list is great, and the desserts are wonderful. All is all, you will have a great experience at Giuseppe's.

On 12/18/14, my husband and I hosted a party if 19 at Guisseppe's. As usual, the food was delicious and the server, attentative. From a constructive standpoint, I would note the following: 1). For a party of 19, we should have been assigned more than one dedicated,server. Granted, she did a good job but the plating and sequence of drinks....appetizers...entree...dessert... More

The food was very good but parking can be a bit dicey. The staff was helpful and very attentive. We love a good Garlic pasta so we are easy to please.

We drove in from the north to meet out in laws here. Had a martini. Wasn't great. (Bad start). I ended up getting spaghetti and meatballs. It was good but what can you do with spaghetti and meatballs? My husband and I have been here twice. Both times we left unimpressed. Overall, it's not bad but it's not a dining... More

The go-to restaurant for Italian food in Lexington. I have had so many different menu items and have never been disappointed. The baked shells stuffed with chicken were excellent on this visit. The fried ravioli appetizer was also great. Service was impeccable as usual. I can't wait to return. My only complaint: it's a little expensive for Italian food.
