Had the steak special that was cooked to perfection. Would definitely return to try more items. Could become my favorite Italian eatery!

Bustling little taste of Italy on the waterfront. Local ingredients integrated into a classic Italian bistro.

Preparation and flavors generally okay but the high prices are out of line for the quality of the food which is only slightly above average. That is, the ingredients aren't as good as they could be. For instance, the menu promised a caprese salad made with "seasonal tomatoes". In late August, that should be something other than flavorless supermarket Roma's... More

My wife and I were in Bellingham for a few days just to get away and relax from everything. Giuseppe's was recommended to us by Betty Cribbs(Viewmont Manor B and B). It was chilly the night we were there so we choose to eat inside. Our waiter was very good. My wife who has a wheat allergy ordered a gluten... More

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at Giuseppe's in early August. The meal was excellent. Steak was perfect, salad was very tasty, and the gentleman serving us did a great job. Very attentive service. Giuseppe came by our table to see how we were doing. We would recommend the restaurant, and we will certainly be back.

We went to Giuseppe's on Saturday to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday and everything was outstanding. Our family came up from San Diego to help us celebrate. We have been going to Giuseppe's for three years and have never been disappointed. Giuseppe's is always there to greet you and will stop by your table during dinner to say hello. Service... More

We attended a celebratory business dinner in a reserved room. The food very good, but it was the service that made our dinner exceptional. The owner stopped by each table and seemed genuinely interested in making sure everything was to our satisfaction. The Ravioli D'Aragosta was a very delicious and rich meal. We would love to visit again...this time on... More

Happy hour and the early dinner menu starts at 3pm. The deck outside was so nice. Easily seated, the very attentive waiters were awesome. John was our waiter and very familiar with the wine list. Juiien was second and covered very well. Watched how they treated the others and caring is the best word to describe. The mussels and calamari... More

We went for happy hour and an early dinner. The early dinner menu was varied and all four meals were excellent. Lots of wine choices for happy hour. Lovely patio as well. I tasted the cheese ravioli and the salmon - both we're fantastic.
