Food was uninspired but good enough. Service was non-existent. Saw our server 3 times the whole evening, would look elsewhere before returning

Even if you had dinner somewhere else, this is a great place to end the night with drinks and a piano bar. I'm a local but certainly not biased. Nothing like it on the Cape . Joe at the piano is the Rain Man of pop music and amazingly knows the music and words to almost any song And if... More

I had the individual pizza .Very good. Good value, service, atmosphere and luckily the piano guy wasn't there. I love good piano playing but not in a restaurant. Sorry to the owners. Very rare that I would go back to a restaurant, I like always trying something new, but I would go back here.

We have a big group with a lot of little kids on our summer's out to Gloucester so it can be tough to accommodate us right off the bat. Giuseppe's used to be the old Blackburn Tavern which had the best fish sandwich in town, but wasn't the most traditional family spot, so we decided to give it a try.... More

Had a rollicking good time last night. All the staff couldn't be more friendly and inviting, you feel like you are being cared for by a family. The food is decent, we gobbled up our appetizers and everyone enjoyed their entrees. A few of us had the haddock special and the fish was fresh as can be and melted in... More

I first discovered Giuseppe's back when they opened about three years ago. Before then, we ate at Olive Garden for Italian food and thought they were the best. But Giuseppe's is the real deal!! The pizza is unique, unlike any other pizza we've had. The Alfredo dish is THE best ever, and the Arancini is simply incredible! Also, I might... More

We really enjoyed our meals here, warm, friendly service and wonderful seafood and pasta. We visited on a Saturday evening and really enjoyed the piano bar atmosphere. The owner/pianist was great and his ( soon to be) wife was a charming host and wonderful chef. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very friendly and watching and listening to the local... More
