“Very Satisfied With The Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Hubby and I came for an early dinner. Service was excellent, but then there was only one other couple in the restaurant. We were seated by the window. Beautiful view of the harbor. Bread was dense and warm. The Italian dip was very good. I had cioppino, hubby had linguini and clams. My dish was wonderful, seafood cooked to perfection, fresh tasting with a wonderful tomato broth that was very lite but flavorful. Hubby's pasta was cooked to perfection and the clams were tender with flavorful sauce. He wasn't fond of the pancetta chunks but still enjoyed the dish. We had the flourless cake which was good but not great. Although the food was good, it was higher end pricing than we thought necessary. Only draw back for us were the uncomfortable chairs making us not want to sit and linger. Not a plus at these prices.

“Giuseppe's is a great place to dine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

My wife and I have gone to Italy many times. Giuseppe runs a restaurant that makes you feel like you are in Italy. He came over from Taormina, one of the prettiest places in Sicily. His restaurant is right down by the water front and, on a warm day, his outside dining cannot be beat. Any time of the year, the food and service will be excellent. Giuseppe is very hands on and in charge. Great host and restaurant owner. If you go in a few times he will recognize you and he is always courteous.

“Italian lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I had not been to the location on the waterfront. The restaurant is large, open done in Golds and cream. The view just makes the setting nice. I had vongole, the dish was tasty and we'll presented. Service was friendly and attentive.

“Delicious Meals, Good Wine/Beer, Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

One of the best places to eat in Bellingham. Not cheap, but not bad for the atmosphere, either. Giuseppe is a very "hands on" owner, helping with the seating, assisting wait staff, talking to customers, etc. My salmon dish was prepared very well and was delicious. Ditto for the seafood and pasta that my partner had. It is very apparent to me that Giuseppe watches over every detail of his business, zipping around the restaurant constantly. Keep it up Giuseppe! I will be back for that special occasion.
