Best Italian in Bellingham

Discovered this restaurant when it was downtown and our son was at Western Washington University. Quickly became our brunch go to place.... and then discovered dinner. It is very very good. For us the most authentic in town try any of the meat sauces as they are notable.

The Customer is King! Without customers you would be out of business! My rant goes totally to the owner, you were horrific to me and my man. We came there on Thanksgiving it was really nice and we were looking forward to your place as becoming one of our new favorite restaurant to go to, so here we were on... More

I have eaten at Giuseppe's several times. The food is consistently excellent! May favorite dishes are the pork chop and duck with gnocchi. The bread service is good, and you can always ask for more. Desserts are yummy too. The service is attentive and helpful, but not intrusive.

Our experience of this restaurant has been consistently very good. Always a friendly greeting--good choice of tables--and a great view of the harbor. The food has been well-prepared and tasty. The service has been courteous and timely. A wise choice for tourist and newbies to Bellingham.

The view on the bay is absolutely wonderful! The food is upscale and comfort food all in one. Giuseppe himself treats everyone like best friends, and the servers are all happy campers. The restaurant is beautiful, and the kitchen is on display in an open concept where you can watch and see how clean and organized everything is. Definitely a... More

Nice setting, it's major selling point. Dined outdoors with my wife and enjoyed a beautiful sunset over the bay on an unseasonably warm September evening. Place was not crowded, with the patio being the busiest spot in a sprawling restaurant. The interior appeared warm and welcoming. Service was good. My wife was impressed. I was not. The food was nothing... More

Visiting the Bellingham area we found Guiseppes while walking around the Marina . It was a beautiful sunny day in Sept and the patio drew us in . The view of the marina and water was great. We had the $20. Special which included salad , entree and dessert . The good was very good and the service was wonderful.

The restaurant is in the marina area. It is a perfect place for a friendly family or romantic dinner. The sunset over the marina boats and the water was breathtaking. We ate outside with the nice view. The meal was excellent and tasty. The service was prompt and courteous. The price was reasonable for the quality of food, the attentive... More

We walked by this place late in the afternoon on a recent sunny Saturday and noticed a large crowd on the patio. We walked around to the restaurant entrance on the other side of the building to check out the menu. We ended up chatting to a man I am presuming was Giuseppe, who was out watering the flowers. We...

We've been to Giuseppe's many times and for many things. Not just drinks (which are pretty outstanding) but casual dinner, too. Our parents had their 50th wedding anniversary dinner here and Giuseppe's went out of their way to accommodate and make it a special evening. We had a room to ourselves and that allowed us to take as much time... More
