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!

What a hidden jewel. Delicious food. Excellent Italian wine selection. We had the Ruin Chianti Reserve. We ordered veal in the Piccata and Milanese and we loved them. The ambiance is a bit aged but I think it contributes to the experience rather than being a distraction. Forgot something and called past midnight. They answered the phone, confirmed that item...

We had an 8:30 reservation. We were seated immediately upon arrival at the appointed time. Our waitress, Chaz, was there immediately for drink orders and when she brought them back asked if there were any menu questions and if we wanted the hear about the specials. Three specials that she had good detail on. Very broad menu selection of both... More

Went to celebrate friend's birthday - once the waitress took our order -> it was over 2-hours before we were served. Four starved folks found food fine, but the wait was difficult to abide - almost walked out. The wine list matched the poor tasting wine ... poor. The waitress was pleasant and the manager gave us an extra glass... More

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
