Hard to believe that an Italian restaurant can overcook pasta to a pasty mush and breaded veal to the rubbery consistency of high school cafeteria food, but Giuseppe's did just that. This was our second visit because we wanted to give the restaurant the benefit...More

A pure family Italian restaurant. The food was excellent, and the service was top notch. The place has a nice, homey atmosphere, but not overbearing.

We wanted some Italian food while staying in Williamsburg and Giuseppe's was the highest rated on Tripadvisor. The service was prompt and friendly. Living in north NJ, we are used to exceptional Italian food. This food was good, not great. It was not overly expensive...More

I am not sure of their policy or practice regarding rehearsal dinners or large groups. It would certainly be worth a call to the restaurant. It is a lovely setting and it has great food. Good luck arranging your event.
