“A bit hit and miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

HITS: Attentive staff, without being intrusive
Decent varied menu choice.
General quality of the food was well above average (a couple of exceptions)
Good atmosphere
Standard prices

MISS: Really poor layout. Huge bar area in the middle of the restaurant, which no-one uses so some tables very close to kitchen and toilets, overheard couple next to us not happy seated next to toilets!
Portion sizes: Where were the veg? Large steak / veal / chicken / sea bass with barely any potatoes or veg
Aerosol cream as standard with desserts, apparently run out of pouring cream, despite many items on the menu being cream sauce-based.

“Birthday Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Me and my husband decided to try Don Guiseppe's for a birthday meal on 23 September 2012. We had not been before and were hoping that it would be a good night as it was a special occasion. We were not disappointed! For starters we had brushetta and prawn cocktail (Italian style). These were good portions and well presented. For mains we both had chicken - Pollo Solpresa was a dish that included cream and the other was cooked in white wine etc. Again well presented and good portions with vegetables. When you read the write up about the restaurant and its name the decor comes as no surprise!! Our waiter was very good and provided a first class service.
To sum up - two very satisfied customers who enjoyed well cooked, delicious quality food and will definitely be visiting this restaurant again.

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

First time visit 25/08/2012, celebrating our Anniversary, upon arrival we were greeted by very polite attentative staff, shown promptly to our seats, the decor is definately Italian Godfather theme, Black and Red, the menu is varied to suit different purses, excellent choices of starters and main meals, the menu was explained by the Waiter in regards to sauces, The House red wine was very palatable (£11.95), Food arrived hot and very tasty. would I recommend "ABSOLUTELY" will I be returning "CANT WAIT", served by different staff but all gave excellent service, nothing too much trouble.

Went to Don Guiseppe's as a big group, there were 15 of us in total. The food was spot on everyone enjoyed their meals, varying from Steak to Calzone, Lasagne and Fish! It was such a great night and the staff were excellent and attentive to everything we ordered or needed! We will be back again! :-)

“Brilliant service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012 via mobile

Great food, great service but the layout and decor really need changing beacuse its like a spotty teens bedroom in the 80s. The price of the menu doesn't match the surroundings.
