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.

The service was fantastic and so was the food. We ordered scallops and they were good, though not seared to our liking. The food is a bit overpriced compared to Belle Note and almost as good.

I am a bit biased on this, as it is also the place where we got engaged, but this has always been a great restaurant. The variety of dishes they have, and to pull them all off very well, is suited to be able to accommodate any discerning palate. I cannot point to a favorite dish, as each has different... More

We came down to Lexington to surprise our son and go see the UK football game against Mississippi State. We selected Giuseppe's because of availability because our lack of planning. We were so glad because the entire meal was fantastic - we will go back!
