“Best Italian Restaurant in Sarasota!”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

If you’re lucky enough to visit Sarasota, or better yet, live here, you deserve to experience Giuseppe’s. It’s unique, unlike any restaurant in town. All of your senses will be awakened—especially your sense of pleasure! Hands down the best restaurant in Sarasota! Giuseppe’s authentic Italian, fresh-as-it-gets fare is unforgettable. Everyone leaves with a smile.

Chef Eduardo is a true master. You can actually taste the love, and therefore the deliciousness, in every dish. Giuseppe’s is developing quite a fan club—and with good reason. The meals are simply glorious. The tiramisu should have it’s own following.

Guiseppe’s Gnocchi is easily a top contender for the best I have ever tasted—even while traveling in Italy. It melts in your mouth, and all you can do is close your eyes and moan. Absolute heaven.

The homemade Limoncello will blow your mind. It’s that good. I don’t even usually like Limoncello, but this is just irresistible.

The chef is consistent, and each time I order the Salmone Livornese I’m thrilled that it has exactly the same sauce, is ultra fresh and moist and cooked to perfection in a light marinara sauce with black olives, capers, garlic and olive oil.

Friends ordered beautiful dishes of Veal Medallian Al Marsala, Lasagna (with meat sauce and béchamel sauce), and homemade gluten-free pasta dishes with flavorful sauces and satisfying generous portions. Every time we come, we all agree—this is the best meal any of us has enjoyed since moving to Florida.

Everything about Giuseppe’s makes it an experience to remember. Guiseppe’s is charming and cozy and feels both homey and special—the kind of place you want to linger in for hours.

This is most genuine and delicious meal you could have right here in Sarasota. Attentive staff, a friendly visit from the owner to make sure you’re satisfied in every way, and cuisine to remember. This is what food is supposed to be. Save yourself the jet lag and the ticket to Italy. Go to Giuseppe’s.

“Enjoyed our lunch”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Our group of four gathers periodically at a dining spot in downtown Sarasota. This time, we enjoyed lunch at Giuseppe's. Our meals were delicious. Spaghetti Alla Pescatore was beautifully assembled, an artful combination of calamari, shrimp, clams and scallops. Polla Alla Fiorentina was a moist chicken breast with provalone cheese and spinach. Our half-salads were just right at lunchtime. Their red wine by the glass was well chosen and reasonably priced. Profitterols with fresh strawberry sauce....yum! We'll be back soon.
