I went here with a few clients and had arguably the best lobster ravioli never actually had chunks of lobster in at the appetizer great the wine selection is also great as well. The only reason this isn't five-star restaurant is that it is geared for the casual diner.

Had fried mozzerella with wonderful marenara, Guiseppi salad, veal saltimbocca with angel hair, and my wife had shrimp with penne. Dinner, 2 martini's plus tip ran us $153.00. Food was very good, service was good and atmosphere very good. Would go again soon and would recommend to friends and family.

Holy cow was the halibut amazing! It had a lobster cream sauce with huge chunks of lobster. I was impressed with all of it, the flavor and the cook on it were perfect. I'll be back!!!

I come to Lexington often. During the Spring or Fall Meet, I'll always eat at Giuseppe's the night before the races. Not only is it lucky for me, but I love the food and staff. Never disappoints.

Noticed an ad for this restaurant and decided to take a chance. We were looking for an alternative to Malone's. Were we surprised when we arrived, the number of people waiting for the restaurant to open at 5PM. After our dinner, we gave it the top rating of all 16 restaurants that we ate in while traveling for one month... More

It's been several years since I've been back to Giuseppe's. My experience tonight was no less perfect then it was the last time. The atmosphere is exactly the same, the wait staff prompt and professional and it appears that items have been added to the menu. There's something to be said for change, sometimes it's best to leave a good... More

In trying to pick a spot for our office Christmas dinner several places came to mind so I shot those ideas out to the group. One employee asked about including Giuseppe's, her favorite place. What a great thought as it had been several years since I had been there but do remember liking it very much. So a reservation for... More
