Great food

We have visited twice now while on our travels and really like the food and service. We'll definitely be back on our next visit to Lexington.

Along with nearby Bella Notte, this is a great Italian restaurant. Had two well drinks ("pear trees"), Giuseppe salad, veal saltimboca. My wife had the gorgonzola salad and chicken piccata. Our tab was $84.00 plus tip--very reasonable for such good fare. Pasta dishes are also great and a bit less expensive. The salads are particularly good, and portions, both salads... More

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 at the table ordered pasta or beef. Everyone... 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

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.
