“Fine dining without "froufrou"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Beautiful Restaurant with a great outdoor seating area...one for families and one for the bar eligible. Excellent Italian food, great wine list, great smiling happy staff, much ambience...on the water, romantic, prices for happy hour wonderful and a thoughtful grouping of early bird dinners at reduced prices. We enjoyed a beautiful cold Washington Pinot Gris, three separate appetizers and shared a yummy desert for $55..... (ok, I lied) I gave a fantastic waiter ten bucks) My Bad!

“Great meal. We will go again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

My wife and I had our anniversary dinner at Giuseppe's in early August. The meal was excellent. Steak was perfect, salad was very tasty, and the gentleman serving us did a great job. Very attentive service. Giuseppe came by our table to see how we were doing. We would recommend the restaurant, and we will certainly be back.

“Just Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

We went to Giuseppe's on Saturday to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday and everything was outstanding. Our family came up from San Diego to help us celebrate. We have been going to Giuseppe's for three years and have never been disappointed. Giuseppe's is always there to greet you and will stop by your table during dinner to say hello. Service is consistently top-notch. Knowledgeable,friendly and unobtrusive. The food is consistently well prepared. Our pasta dishes and seafood were amazing. I had the Muscovey duck breast and it was one of the best preparations I have had. They also have a great Happy Hour. Unwind on the patio with a glass of wine and enjoy the view of the marina. Highly recommended.

“Excellent food, terrific service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We attended a celebratory business dinner in a reserved room. The food very good, but it was the service that made our dinner exceptional. The owner stopped by each table and seemed genuinely interested in making sure everything was to our satisfaction. The Ravioli D'Aragosta was a very delicious and rich meal. We would love to visit again...this time on a romantic date.

“Great service, great happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Happy hour and the early dinner menu starts at 3pm. The deck outside was so nice. Easily seated, the very attentive waiters were awesome. John was our waiter and very familiar with the wine list. Juiien was second and covered very well. Watched how they treated the others and caring is the best word to describe. The mussels and calamari are great appys. $5 glasses of wine! Enjoy
