    A very nice restaurant that rivals italian eateries in NYC. Giuseppe and his staff do an excellent job at making you feel welcome with great food and service. A gem that has even gotten better with the expanded space.

    Giuseppes has been a favorite for a long time. We eat there whenever we visit New Jersey. But this time, it was even better than ever. There are new menu items along with old faves. When asked for a salad that was no longer on the menu, the waiter replied, "Of course! We'd be happy to make it for you!" Service is professional, unobtrusive, efficient, careful and respectful. . .better than ever. We love Giuseppe. It's one of the highlights of our trip to northern NJ

    Restaurant was fine BUT locals use it for a meeting place, a table of four next to us grew to four seated and four standing talking for a good 20 min not once but twice so you can imagine the noise from 8 people trying to out-do each other. It ruined our night out for a relaxing evening.

  • Very Good Food, But Not a BYO.
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 5/17/2012
    Their food is always very good, but we only go there when we are not drinking that night. So many other restaurants in the neighborhood are BYO we just can't see paying $12-15 a glass (including tax and tip) for wines similar to the $15 bottles we bring to the BYOs. Without windows, and a dark drab room, the ambiance is a bit depressing.

    We had a party of 10 as to which everyone arrived 30-45 min late except for my sister and I, the waiter took a while to ask if we wanted anything while we waited. Otherwise the service was pretty good. The place is in a strip mall which i wasn't thrilled with but the inside is very nice and cozy. Food was delicious, I ordered beef carpaccio for an appetizer which was great and salmon for the main course which was also delicious. Great place.

    The food and service is outstanding. Giuseppe Staino and his staff go out of their way to make your experience enjoyable. The menu always something new and his sauces are incredible - especially the Prince Edward Mussels sautéed with Little Neck Clams in "Arribbiata Sauce" appetizer.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 2/2/2012
    Giuseppes was offering Restaurant week specials--three course for $27.15. I took advantage of this offer and enjoyed the mesclun salad with mango, walnuts and goat cheese. The mango was not quite ripe enough, which was disappinting because a riper, sweeter mango is the perfect compliment to goat cheese. For my entree I passed on my usual Branzino (which is done to perfection here), and had the Salmon with prosecco and truffle oil. I couldn't pass it up, and it did not disappoint. For dessert I enjoyed my favorite: Zabaglione over strawberries. Wonderful dinner and great price!

    The menu had many interesting dishes &the food was good, but the Waiters were very slow & not very attentive.They didn't bring menus in a timely fashion, they didn't ask if we wanted cocktails after the first round, plates weren't cleared without asking- we had to keep flagging them down after waiting an unusually long time.There was a group of approx 12 men who arrived shortly after us & they seemed to be getting all the attention &service.There were only 3-4 waiters in the restaurant because it is small &they were all concentrating on working the group rather than on their previous seated tables.It was also odd to the Chef sitting at the bar surfing the Internet on his laptop.Specials were never read to us, but were read to others.

    Giuseppe's is a dream come true. Excellent Italian dining at reasonable prices. Our dinner was reminiscent of our trip to Italy several years ago. Perfect portions, a wide variety of favorites and some new dishes to try and delicious flavors. I highly recommend this restaurant. If you want to have food to remember, go to Giuseppe's, and you will not be disappointed. One last mention is the service. You cannot find better than Giuseppe's even in New York.

    Dined on 11/11/2011
    The food here was very fresh and well prepared. However, they use practically no garlic in their food preparations. They said this was the real Italian way of cooking. We definitely missed the garlic. The salad was superb, since we did not expect garlic in that anyway. The wine was also outstanding as was the cheese. If you do not care for garlic, we would highly recommend Nisi. It is a small, cozy, upscale restaurant with tables close together. Service is impeccable.

    Giuseppe's is not your typical,cookie-cutter Italian restaurant. The food is very fine and sophisticated,served in a lovely, warm and friendly environment. The very able staff is efficient without being intrusive. The Ahi-tuna and the filet mignon appetizers are not to be missed! Pastas are fresh and innovative, and the bolognese sauce is better than anywhere. Entrees are truly special,and the "specials" are always fabulous. I love the wonderful Bronzini fish, which is always done just right. The perfect final touch - a complimentary homemade biscotti with your coffee, espresso or cappuchino.

The antipasto appetizer was so yummy! It was marinated perfectly! Pastas were very good also but dessert was the big let down. We will definitely be back with friends!!

    Ambience, service, location, parking were good. The entrees - mixed results in preparation - veal tough, too much mozzarella (cheese thick, heavy, rubbery), sauce listless. Shrimp entree well done, nice choice of accompaning pasta/veggies. Scallops OK but a bit too spicey. Decent wine list. All in all quality not there - would not recommend.

    We enjoyed a great dinner at Giuseppe, from start to finish, everything was great. The waiters were all very helpful and gave great suggestions on house specialties as well as their favorites. We were both happy with the appetizers, main course and dessert! The olives & cheese at the beginning were a very nice touch! We never felt rushed even though there were people waiting for tables. We would definitely return. Overall, great experience!
