Amazing!

My husband and I visited this restaurant on the last night of our vacation. I have to say the meal I had was one of my top 5 ever! The special that evening was a Halibut dish cooked italian style. Sooo good and fresh tasting. The piece of fish sat on top of roasted potatoes that were surrounded... read more

Giuseppe's offers a variety of nice dishes from classic pasta to specials including fish cooked in parchment. Often, when I don't have a big appetite I love to make a meal of their famous Lentil Soup and Fresh Arugula and Sirloin Steak salad. The fig balsamic on the salad is a nice touch. Blackboard specials typically take advantage of seasonally-available... More

Eggplant parmigiana was excellent. The spaghetti and meatballs was good, but not hot and the pasta not al dented. Service was incredibly rushed which made the dining experience less enjoyable.

Visited here ten days ago with my family. This was our second visit in two years because we wanted to give it a second chance due to the reviews. The vegetable medley and lentil soup are good but nothing else stands out. With Italian being our favorite cuisine, Giuseppe's does not stand out from the crowd and we will not... More

After a long day at the water park, we were dying for some great italian food and definately found it at Giuseppe's! Great atmosphere, great food- I had the Chicken Parm and it was excellent! The service was great and the owner was very friendly and accommodating- great overall experience!! We'll definately be back.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local resident we met at the brew pub up the road. It turned out to be just what we wanted - a warm, friendly atmosphere with traditional Italian offerings at a good price. We were seated promptly and served quickly but lingered after eating to enjoy the atmosphere. It was a quiet... More

We selected this restaurant after exploring reviews on TA. WOW we were not disappointed. The host and staff are very welcoming, and high touch service that is very rare these days. He also kept coming by to check on us, and other guests, to ensure all was well. It's that kind of personal touch that I miss in NYC. The... More

If you are wondering if you should eat here, stop wondering and do it! Start off with a glass of wine, which my wife kept commenting that it was a "very generous pour." Be sure to order the award winning Lentil Soup. We had and loved the Veal Saltimbocca and Pork Marsala. The waiter was great and checked on us... More

Food and service were excellent! The grilled swordfish with lobster meat, asparagus and roasted potatoes special was amazing! My kids really enjoyed the meatballs and Pasta bolangnese dishes.

Great food, great service, great hospitality. Try the cannoli, tiramisu, and creme brûlée. They are all phenomenal! The owner kept us informed about the status of our table while we waited. From the beginning his priority was making sure we were taken care of. We had an expecting mother with us and he even asked if he could bring her... More
