As a local, I have eaten here quite a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable. A visit to the table by the owner shows that he cares about his patrons and if they are happy. I usually try the special of the night if it is something that I... read more

Always promptly greeted by the owner or hostess at this non chain local long time restaurant. White table cloths and silver, at Olive Garden prices. The menu items are creative and excellently prepared, including all the traditional Italian items, including gourmet pizza options. Wait staff is well trained and attentive. A little off the normal tourist path (unless you are... More

Nothing at this restaurant was disappointing from the personal greeting by the owner to the service we received and the outstanding meals.

We always make sure to have a dinner at Giuseppe's each year while at our timeshare in Williamsburg. The food is always great, and the staff are always helpful and friendly.

Naturally, I started with the Lentil soup. This is not a normal lentil soup and is full of sausage and the taste is extraordinary. Do not go without trying a soup. At this visit, I had the steak sandwich. The steak was tender and delicious and it came with a pasta salad (not remarkable but ok). The wait staff was... More

If you're craving the typical spaghetti, lasagna or pizza, go elsewhere. Check the menu (http://www.giuseppes.com/dinner-menu) and you'll see what I mean. My wife had "Homemade Meatballs" and I had "Fettuccine Alfredo". Both were excellent and reasonably priced (as was the entire menu, IMHO). Wine cost was on-par with "nicer" restaurants, and they have a reasonable selection of by-the-glass choices. I... More

We sat at the bar and ordered scallops wrapped in prosciutto and individual pizzas. The scallops were overlooked and the prosciutto was totally dried out. The pizza crust was the weirdest thing I'd ever been served masquerading as pizza crust. It was completely flat and dry and had the appearance of Pillsbury premade pie dough. It wasn't thin crust with... More

We just happened to stop by Giuseppe's on a trip to Williamsburg, and were so pleased with the food and the service that we went back a second time.

Great tasting Italian food served in a casual style. Their authentic gnocchi and risotto were well prepared and generously served. We'll be back whenever we're in the area.
