What a great find this is. This is real Italian food for everyone's taste. The seafood dishes are fantastic and the service is outstanding. Everything on our table was the best since I was in Venice.

We're late diners so a lot of the place was closed but our table in the bar featured a super view out to the harbor, spectacular sunset included. The bartender was actually our waiter and could not have been more accommodating. He was obviously knowledgeable about the wine list and made a really nice recommendation. We feasted on calamari (adequate... More

First time there from Pitt Meadows, British Columbia. Wow, the atmosphere was so delightful, the food was served very fast and was the best seafood I've eaten. The ribs were so tender and between the two of us we had to take some ribs home as the amount of meat on them was so much. We will be back as... More

We were visiting Bellingham for the first time and Giuseppe's was regularly recommended as one of if not the best restaurants in town. It did not disappoint. Our salmon was exquisite, the presentation artful, and the ambiance, overlooking the marina beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This is my favorite place to eat here in town, but it is a bit pricey, so we don't get there as often as I'd like. The food is soooo good and there is a nice ambiance to it as well. We went there for Mother's Day Brunch and everything was so delicious. It's also nice that it's located near... More

We've been there for Mother's Day brunch. It was a buffet but I could easily see from the food that they are authentic Italian. Decor is elegant but not too formal. Service is very good. Good location too, easy parking. One thing that I don't like is that tips (20%) were automatically added to my check (table of 3) without... More

Great setting, overlooking the marina in Bellwether Way. We thought the outside patio might be a little cool, so were seated at dining tables in the bar area. Would have preferred the main dining room, but it was OK, not loud at all. Amy was a great, attentive, but not intrusive server. My wife enjoyed her Caprese salad, and I... More

Giuseppe runs an authentic, upscale Italian restaurant like you'd expect to find in the classier sections of Rome, Milan, or other cosmopolitan centers in Italy. He will greet you warmly upon arrival, and check in with you during your meal. The hands-on approach is welcome and sincere. He runs the restaurant with a sharp eye for quality, service, and reliability.... More
