In a town such as Lexington, where there is a wide range restaurants -- including a surprisingly diverse ethnic selection -- it's sad to note that Italian choices are few and far between! The northside has had two failures, one excellent and the other good, and only one so-so choice at present. The southside has nothing to speak of. In... More

We requested an appetizer size of the TORTELLINI ALLA PANNA E PESTO - very good, but not much asparagus. My wife had veal piccata - she enjoyed it and was pleased with the quantity. I had the scallops over penne special - I really enjoyed it - got 4 large scallops and the pasta and lemon sauce was very nice.... More

We were extremely impressed with the food. I think that's a given and nearly everyone who dines here will tell you that much. There were so many things on the menu that sounded good, we had a hard time choosing our orders. So we had to end up passing our plates around the table to sample everyone else's dishes! The... More

Had not eaten at Giuseppe's in Lexington, Ky in a while and had dinner recently. What a shame!!!!!! Used to be an excellent Italian restaurant. The service was fine but the food has really slipped. Panko halibut... no panko crumbs and dry halibut. Ordered caprese salad and received a pile of greens with a few small squares of mozzarella just... More

Giuseppe's has been in Lexington, for as long as I remember. It has always been seen as one of those restaurants, that if you like good food, would be on your regular radar. And still today the food is great, the service was pleasant, and food prepared in a reasonable amount of time for good food. However the complaint I... More

A delightful hidden treasure just off Nicholasville Rd. Outstanding menu and the food is marvelous. Our server, Jessica made the evening so very perfect with her timing. The food quality, quantity and appearance is fantastic. A place for the entire family or a great romantic retreat.

We ventured to this restaurant for our sixth anniversary based on tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We did not have a reservation, so started out in the bar. The bartender was not very attentive, so we were concerned about the evening, but once we were moved to the dining room with Tina as our server, everything went very well.... More

The food and service was excellent overall. The dining areas provide a "calm" dining experience without the hustle and bustle one sometimes experiences with "chains". There is a dining area outside which would be a good experience during the spring and fall seasons. The location is on a major highway, however it can be hard to find if you are... More

What a fantastic experience! We had a great waiter, Norman, who helped us right off the bat by telling us about the special that runs before 7pm giving you a discount on several of the appetizers (we were wavering between getting a big dish each or sharing a bunch of little dishes) That decided us and we ordered quickly to...

I have been dining at Giuseppe's off and on for 20 years. It is either on or off as far as a dining experience. Tonight it was an off experience. The veal piccata was good but the chicken buona vita was not good. Dry, over salty, a total turn off. The salad was over powered by the dressing. The chocolate... More
