Great Date Night

In trying to pick a spot for our office Christmas dinner several places came to mind so I shot those ideas out to the group. One employee asked about including Giuseppe's, her favorite place. What a great thought as it had been several years since I had been there but do remember liking it very much. So a reservation for... More

Although a Tuesday night the restaurant was crowded but given that we had a reservation (recommended) we were seated immediately. Our server Carissa was instantly at our table and proved to be a welcome enhancement to our dining experience. She was... More

We went because my wife had gone with a friend of hers. However, they didn't want any regular customers tonight October 31, 2015. The only price started at $100 per person. They stated it was due to Keeneland Breeder's cup. We turned around and left as I loudly proclaimed I guess they don't want any business tonight. It would probably... More

Went to Giuseppe's after a day at the races. Parking is a challenge as it was a busy night. Food was excellent! Lasagna was great and the garlic bread is to die for!!! My wife had a pasta dish with shrimp and she said it was great. They had an oyster appetizer that was fabulous. Service on this night was... More
