We had a superb experience
We had a superb experience at this restaurant. We were looking for something special for a small family celebration. Most of us were visiting from out-of-town. The restaurant exceeded our expectations. The owner suggested appetizers while we waited for some of our guests. The bruschetta was the best we've tasted. The menu was very complete with something for everyone. The lobster ravioli special was just delectable. The pacing of the courses was perfect and allowed plenty of time to visit, open presents, etc. All in all, a truly wonderful day was enhanced with this lovely dining experience!

This was our first visit to
This was our first visit to Giuseppe's and it was fabulous. From the moment we stepped in the door and were greeted by a very friendly and personable host to the time we walked out and were invited back. The service, food, wine was all superb. I had the salmon which was to die for and was the best I have ever eaten. If you want a fine waterfront dining experience with delicious Italian fare, Giuseppe's Al Porto is the place to go!

Excellent food and great service.
Excellent food and great service. Only drawback is that it can be rather noisy. When they were down on cornwall the atmosphere was much more intimate.

Easter Brunch at Giuseppe's
Easter Brunch at Giuseppe's was a delightful treat. The food was delicious, and the service was attentive and cheerful. Many thanks to everyone, especially Giuseppe, who
greeted all his guests personally.

World Class Brunch!!
An absolutely amazing Easter brunch at Giuseppe's! The food was exquisite with abundant choices. The service was inconspicuously thorough. And of course Giuseppe was there to greet diners and check in to insure that they were enjoying themselves. Outstanding!! Next brunch is Mother's Day -- don't miss it!!! Thank you, Giuseppe!!

I was beyond pleased with
I was beyond pleased with my time here. I am a vegetarian and my girlfriend cannot eat shellfish, so while we had more limited options than most couples would have, what we had was absolutely fantastic, We got seated looking right out over the water and got a nice corner table. They even gave us a dessert because it was our anniversary! I have already recommended Giuseppe's to my friends, and I can't wait to go back!

High standard top Italian
Consistent and great ambiance. One over site that made a difference, the duck was over cooked.
4/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
First time and it turned out great.
We went there for our five years aniversary.
Very friendly staff and good food. We were greeted and seated by the owner himself. Our food took a little bit long to arrive, or maybe we were just starved and they were very busy at the time. Overall, good service and good food. Price is on the high, as expected. Two glasses of their cheapest wine, one apitizer, and two dinners (rib eye steak and halibut) came out to about $100.
We may return for another special occasion, but definitely not a place for regular dinner unless you got a thick wallet.

great place to dine as a group
I have now used Giuseppi's for a pre sailing weekend Friday night dinner for the past two years.this staff and owner have gone out of their way to accommodate our group. Food always excellent. wait staff courteous and prompt taking care of our every need. Will definitely continue to come back to Giuseppi'swhen planning our weekend sails.

Phenomenal dining experience
Absolutely fantastic food, service was great, the happy hours I was cheap but didn't take away from the quality of food. Dining right on the water was incredibly romantic as well.

Fun nite out!
I had never been to Giuseppe's before, a few in our group had, so it was highly recommended. As a small group of friends/co-workers we decided to go out to dinner. We had the best time! The service was great, the food excellent, and the wine... dee-lish!
Giuseppe even came by and said hello, and made sure we were all happy. I don't think I've been out for dinner very often where I even knew who the owner was, let alone had him stop by the table. Was a genuine, personal touch and that went a long way.
This was the first as a group outing for us, and I'm pretty sure it won't be the last.
Thank you Giuseppe's , for a fun night out!
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Not what i expected
When reading reviews for Giuseppe's I was a little hesitant to go there, but that all changed when we sat down we had good service, good food and the bill was not over the top. no complaints at all we will be turning on our next trip down to Bellingham.
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Solid food experience
Went to Giuseppe's during a romantic weekend getaway to Bellingham. Excellent food, really good service and a great view complimented our romantic weekend beautifully. We will definitely return.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
A perfect meal on a perfect day!
We sat at an indoor table with a view of the harbor, while others enjoyed it from the veranda.
Our waiter was very sociable and knew the menu well. We thoroughly enjoyed the early bird
specials. The salmon was great, as were the Spaghetinni Pomo, We started with a great anti-pasta- Gambretti Funghi plus very good wines.
We highly recommend Giuseppe's Al Porto.
6/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
What more could you ask for?
It helps to have a perfect day, but when you combine that with great food and wine, you have a winning combination. Just the sight of sailboats in the harbor, puts you in the right mood.

Overall, dinner was fabulous.
Overall, dinner was fabulous. My girlfriend and I ordered the chicken parmesan and were both surprised to see two chicken breasts per plate! That's a good thing, though. Service was fantastic and view was very beautiful. It's a very pleasant restaurant to be in, with the interior decoration being suitable and quaint.
Highly recommend for a night out with someone special.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a great meal
I frequent Giuseppe's restaurant because I can always depend on having a great meal and a wonderful experience from the staff and the owner.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place to eat!
We had the early dinner deal and were quite happy with the food. The wine list was extensive and we were sitting at the patio on a sunny day sipping wine, enjoying the food and the spectacle view. Our server was very attentive and the service was excellent. We would definitely return to this restaurant whenever we are in Bellingham.
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Looked for a special place for grad night and it fit the bill. Noise level a bit high for much conversation, but food was great. Was glad we'd made the online reservations, for we were able to walk right in, no waiting for our table.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistently high standards
I dine here frequently and I'm seldom disappointed with either the standard of food or service. This has been a very successful transition for Giuseppe from his previous downtown location.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
It's pricy enough that we only go once or twice a year, but you can't go wrong dining at Guiseppe's,. It's wort the little extra cost for a fantastic meal a exceptional service. They do it right!
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was spot on - service ,attendance ,ambiance, food choices, view, Guiseppe was gracious,wine options,and the quality of
the food . We will go back soon.
7/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
SERVICE, SERVICE, SERVICE
The food creations are top notch, but what separates this Restaurant from so many others is "Service, Service, Service"! Giuseppe's staff are trained well, and are attentive, professional and polite at all times!
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another terrific dining experience
Another terrific dining experience (my 3rd) and my first-time guests loved it as well. We look forward to returning and highly recommend Giuseppe's
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
One our favorite secrets !
We have been going to this Italian restaurant since it was located on Commercial. You won't be disappointment. The food is fresh, local and well prepared. The wait staff knows their stuff and is willing to get you the meal the way you want it. The patio int he summer with its view of the harbor is fantastic.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Giuseppe's for lovers
Friday night date with my wife and we had a delightful evening. Giuseppe always makes us feel welcome like we just walked into his home for dinner. Gina our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. The food was fresh, nicely presented and delicious. Good wine selection and moderately priced. We had a 6:00 reservation and got seated right away. Three hours later we left having had a great evening.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place, amazing food!
Very flavorful, reasonable priced Seafood! Amazing Patio overlooking marina and bay.
They happily met special diet requirements and made to dish so tasty and appealing within the diet restrictions.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great location for outdoor dining - overlooking marina. Service very good and friendly owner always around to assist.
The pasta dishes were especially good!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Choice Anytime
You come for the food and are wowed by the service. It is always a pleasant experience to dine at Giuseppe's. We have never been disappointed by the food or the staff. You are always made to feel welcomed, no matter if you are just stopping in for dessert or a meal. A touch that I especially like is that Giuseppe comes by and greets everybody that comes to his restaurant. He is genuinely happy to see them and shows them a hospitality that you would normally only find at someone's home.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Visiting my aunt in Bellingham gave us the opportunity to visit this lovely fem of a restaurant. The food and service were excellent. The view was lovely. I especially appreciated the fact that it was quite which facilitated leisurely dining and conversaton
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Giuseppe's food and "service" are always "on". The owner Giuseppe is always "hands-on" to ensure that firstly the food is first class and that the service is always smooth, pleasent and efficient. Thanks Giuseppe, we will be back very shortly.
Keep up the high standards and tradition of great food!
8/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Friday night dinner
Went Friday evening & sat outside since the weather was nice. Great view of the marina and enjoyed the sunset. The food was terrific as usual. Had the swordfish special which was fantastic. Wife had the lasagna which is a generous portion and tasted great. They have a good variety of wines so ask the waiter for a recommendation. We get the house Barberra wine almost time. Please check it out. It's a little on the pricey side but the food is worth it.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't wait to go back!
Great restaurant for a romantic dinner or special occasion. Outstanding service and delicious food!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Italian place in Bellingham W
On several occasions past few months, we found a consistently very good Italian kitchen here. Good service. Scenic setting. Easy parking. Pleasant small bar. We are very particular about pasta, desserts and service; we were never disappointed (after Giuseppe moved his restaurant to this location from Downtown Bellingham).
Certainly best Italian restaurant in and around Bellingham. Prices typical, but less than comparable places in Vancouver BC.
We'll be back soon!
8/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
A Mixed Reaction
My wife and I chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The location is ideal, along the waterfront with a view of adjacent boat slips. The menu and food was very good, but we were disappointed in the service, that suffered when large groups were being served, making it less satisfactory for a couple seeking a well paced meal.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superb attention and Food
I came to town with little notice for the Skagit Flats marathon. Needed a good last meal on the Saturday night before the race. The staff was helpful, well trained, friendly and made great suggestions. The food was exactly what I was looking for but even better than I was expecting. Flavorful, moist, brilliant. Giuseppe himself came by and effusively greeted me personally as if I was his oldest and most favorite "regular" customer. But it seems he does this for nearly everyone.
Thanks for a wonderful experience and meal. Also, I ran FAST today!! That's a perfect experience in my book. Thanks again.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The chicken parmagiana and Caesar salad were as good as any I have had locally. Highly recommend.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time worth repeating
From the moment we entered, we were immediately greeted by a staff member and then escorted by a business casually dressed gentlemen to our table. Then he introduced himself as Giuseppe, the owner, and we were elated to have been sat by him personally. Nice touch as that's not the norm at other restaurants. The restaurant has separate sections for outdoor, indoor and private dining reserved for groups and events. The menu was generous and the wine list was appropriate and catered for the meals at hand. We were waited upon promptly and our food came hot and ready to eat. The presentation on the table was Devine complete with a glowing candle, small vase with some flowers and a lovely flower arrangement in the backdrop. The ambiance is A++
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our favorite italian place !
title says it all, the happy hour menu and pricing is perfect for those on a budget
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great location, wonderful food, and pleasant service. I definitely recommend this restaurant, and if you're on a budget their "early dinner" is fantastic :)
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
I keep coming back!
The majority of my family live a few hours south of Bellingham, and whenever someone comes up for an evening to visit we usually decide to go out, and almost regularly to Guiseppe's. As a pescatarian, I usually order their seafood dishes. Their balsamic glazed salmon melts in your mouth, and I highly recommend it. I've had family dinners at other nice restaurants around Bellingham, but this one stands out to me. The service has always earned their tip, and between the menu selections and specials I've always felt I have ample delicious options to choose from at Guiseppe's, even as a pescatarian. And leave room for dessert!
I like trying new things, but I make an exception for Guiseppe's as my go-to special occasion restaurant.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
As always, the service, the food and the ambience was perfect. Love coming here.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, great service, and a passionate and personable proprietor. Awesome spot in Bellingham.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there, recommended
First time there, recommended by neighbour in White Rock, great location, food and service, can't wait to try patio in warmer weather, everyone enjoyed it, will be back for sure

Dining out with a granddaughter
This restaurant was recommended to us by friends who had a student at WWU. It was as represented, good food at a fair price.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great date night
This was our second visit, great authentic Sicilian food, friendly service. Beautiful view of Bellingham Bay.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Giuseppe's continues to a favorite
Love the cuisine and service. Giuseppe shows he cares through the evening, stopping by the tables and supporting his staff, too. We keep coming back.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was slightly slow which could be the result of the time we arrived and it was fairly full for a Tuesday
When our bill came I noticed we had been charged for an entree we had not ordered
It was quickly corrected
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Mom and I dined in your restaurant on Thanksgiving Day. The food was very fresh, nice and hot, and tasted very good to both of us! The wait staff was very attentive to everyone and the whole room was buzzing with good vibes and energy. We will be back and will recommend Giuseppe's Al Porto to others, too!
