Best Italian restaurant in the area

This is certainly the best Italian restaurant that you can find in this area. Among all, I love their Arrabbiata sauce (spicy marinara). Right next to the restaurant, there is an authentic Italian market where they sell the prepared pasta, marinara sauce, and other Italian goodies.

We ordered Chicken Cacciatore and an antipasto salad to go. The pasta was a stuck together mess, small amount of chicken, negligible vegetables, and bland sauce. The salad was another big disappointment.

Turn right at the lights at the Shell and 7Eleven and you're there. This is classic Italian food made with love by a staff and an owner Guiseppe who is in the restaurant most of the time. I'm not Italian, but he is and I trust him. It's been gratifying to see the success of this restaurant, growing from a... More

My husband and I always make a trip to Giuseppe's every time we visit Newburyport. The lasagna, and stuffed shells are so good you just can't stop eating. The marinara sauce ,or gravy as some people call it, is tops on our list. Try it and you will soon be a fan.

Instead of bringing home fast food to your family on work nights, try this place for a change. Really homemade authentic Italian family meal trays.

A lot of folks ask where Giuseppe's is and how to get there. Yet, until recently, despite knowing where it is tucked away on Low Street, I had never stopped in to sample its menu.So, on a quiet night, after 8:30 PM I drove with Kit for a dinner out. The hostess greeted us cordially and said we could sit... More

Bring a date, bring your grandparents, bring the kids - I can't imagein there is anyone who couldn't find something to love at Giuseppes. I usually get take-out - more often than I should - but they have created a lovely little restaurant inside as well. The pasta is all homemade - a wide variety of shapes, sizes, all sorts... More

We went here for dinner on Friday at five. We are a family of five with a one year old. Real Italian food. The best around. Excellent atmosphere. Everyone finished all of their food (amazing for kids) plus delectable desserts. We had chicken parm. etc. Waitstaff was excellent. A new favorite. Very reasonably priced.

Hello Robert, my name is Giuseppe Masia and i am so thankful for your review ! I really apologize if i make my sauce too sweet for you! We only make 240 quarts of it a day, and my regulars compare that to they grandmothers... Our Eggplant is Parmigiana, and in my family, like all over Italy, don't use mozzarella,... More
