Based upon the reviews, I expected more. The food was good but nothing special, the owners were friendly but the atmosphere so casual that service was second to socializing.

We ordered the lasagna and the rigatoni. I added sausage to my rigatoni and it was perfect. The atmosphere was quaint and inviting. The service was so friendly. Most of. the diners were repeat customers and they were welcomed by the staff. It was worth the stop for sure.

The setting is a series of smallish wallpapered rooms. We arrived 1/2 hour before closing so maybe the staff was tired. Service was awful - we had to get up to ask for a menu, the server forgot my wine, forgot the check. The food was pretty good - pasta & well cooked seafood. I'd give it another chance if... More

One of the best marinara sauces I ever have tasted. The homemade pasta is perfectly cooked. The garlic bread was Devine. Had some of the best red tomatoes in my salad that I have eaten in over ten years. Very homey and welcoming decor. Deserts amazing. Will be one of my regulars to visit. Definitely !!!!!

Visited this restaurant for the Eggplant Parmesan, which was excellent. This is a little restaurant that looks like it could be right at home in Italy. It is a small house converted into a restaurant with patio. Only seats about 42 people. Only open from 5-9 M-F and 5-10 on Sat. Lola & Giuseppe's Trattoria, Gahanna, Oh. Suburb of Columbus.... More

From Appetizer to Dessert we could feel and taste the care and love that goes into every aspect of the dining experience. Everything was prepared from scratch and stands the test of any 5 star chef. Italian comfort in the food and service. Chicken parm stands up to any we've had..amish chicken breast, tender and lightly breaded, baked to perfection.... More

One of our favorite places in Gahanna. They always make you feel like your family. Service was great. the red sauce is fantastic on the meat lasagna. Always something interesting on the menu.

Guiseppe's is our favorite Columbus Restaurant! Great Italian dishes, very good wine and superb service. This restaurant is in a residential area and has a wonderful local feel and vibe.
