Description: Welcome to Palazzo Giuseppe’s, downtown San Luis Obispo! Our Italian regional specialties are indicative to the Pugliese region in Italy, particularly Bari, a seaport on the Adriatic Sea from which most of our recipes originate. We hope you will enjoy and appreciate our great loyalty to the distinctive dishes, all of which we prepare with genuine and natural ingredients and methods. Our bread is baked from scratch every day in a wood-burning oven imported from Italy. Each loaf is made by hand, allowed to rise four times and slow-cooked to achieve the truly rustic appearance and taste you would find in a Baresi seaside village. DiFronzo is dedicated to producing & growing as many heirloom, organic vegetables, & fruits from his family farm as possible. Gelato, pizzas, & specialties including his estate grown Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, & Syrah. All of this takes time but to us it is an art and a labor of love. We are truly committed to bringing you "cucina genuina."

“Good Italian Food in SLO”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great service. Good food. Good wine list. A step up from the fatty, fried college food in SLO. Nice, covered outdoor seating.

“I eat here everytime I visit SLO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I love this place. The food is consistently amazing. The staff has always been wonderful, whether I am in the bar area or at a table. The winelist is great, my sister and I have found our favorite local wineries from wines on their list. Highly recommend any glass or bottle from Baileyana or Treana.

“Perhaps we ordered the wrong entrees”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We tried dinner on the recommendation of a winery. Unfortunately our skirt steak entrees were subpar. Dry and drenched in a marinade or sauce served with shriveled potatoes. Not appetizing or worth the price. Appetizer salad with pears and beets was ok and my husbands clam chowder was average. The desserts were good but overall, the food did not measure up to the warm ambiance. I suppose we would have had better luck had we ordered pasta. But, we did ask the server if the steak was worth ordering and she said it was. She should have been honest.

“Authentic Italian Food in a welcoming restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We enjoyed a wonderful meal of salad, and pizza. It was authentic, just like we recently enjoyed in Florence, Italy! The server was attentive and charming, and the atmosphere welcoming and warm, on a drizzly evening. The owner made rounds through the restaurant sending leftover bread bread home with the diners, a nice touch! We ate there mid week, and although the restaurant was busy, it wasn't loud or crowded. Baseball fans enjoyed a play off game in the restaurant's bar area, creating a lively atmosphere. A great meal!
