Our family in Arizona told us about this place. Its a little restaurant with about 10 tables tucked away in a shopping center and was featured on Diners, Dives and Drive Ins. The food is why...we were very surprised at the quality of the homemade pasta and entrees. This is good stuff! The pasta and meatballs were excellent and so was the eggplant parm and butternut squash ravioli. If youre looking for elegance or a business power meal, this isnt the place to come. But for some of the best local italian food In town i'd highly recommend sneaking away to this little joint.

As I travel, I love to find these Triple D dives that deliver some good food. I remember seeing this Triple D location on TV, but did not know where it was. Thankfully, I ran into this little Italian dive by accident for a late lunch.

The size of the restaurant is tiny. It literally is a dive by most restaurant standards. With it being so small, they only had and need one waitress. She was very nice and helpful in selecting an entree from the menu. She recommended the Bolognese Ragu that was on Triple D.

I selected the Bolognese Ragu and I am glad that I did. The Bolognese Ragu was a flavorful, meaty concotion over homemade pasta. The ragu had a number of different meats, vegetables, and seasoning that provided a lot of different things to experience in your mouth. The pasta itself was homemade and had some substance to it that other pastas don't. The portion size was generous. People might raise an eye brow to the prices but I thought from the quality it was great.

The basket of bread tasted fresh as well.

Overall, do not let this little dive in a strip shopping center make the final determination to eating there or not. Guiseppe's delivers on service, quality food, and uniqueness. I was happy that I found this little Italian dive.

Glad I stopped,Very good Italian Kitchen,You walk in it is small and quaint,The menu is on overhead boards once you choose you place your order with the very friendly counter person and they give you fresh baked bread with butter,I had the meat ravioli with meat sauce it was very good,Would have again in a minute.I was dining alone for my meal and drink it was $16.94.It is a little pricey but worth it.They also have a sitting area outside on there patio so you can enjoy the beautiful weather.

While the place has a small, cozy feel to it, the food was just average. We had a calamari appetizer which I really did not care for. It was the first and last time I have ever had calamari prepared in any other manner than fried. One member of our party ordered the boar ragout and was quite pleased. I had the chicken parm, which was not that memorable. All in all, just a very average dining experience.

This restaurant is in a strip center and owned by a man from NJ. It was featured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. Lots of homemade pasta . Everything is excellent. No reservations so get there early( but don't take my table!). Mangia
