Giuseppe's Ristorante Italiano
Oven Roasted Sea Bass
with lobster chili butter sauce, over a bed of spaghetti or with the vegetable of the day
Our service was excellent, the food was a step above Olive Garden
The food was awesome!! Even gave us a free dessert for my husbands birthday! Always our favorite place to eat when we are in Lexington!
Food was good, but I expected it to taste a bit better. I hade the something Vincenzzo. The beef tips were good, pasta didn’t taste that fresh. Our server was great, quick and friendly. We sat in the covered patio, and it was warm at first, but as people left, it cooled too much and was cold. Overall a good place, just wasn’t the experience I expected from the previous times I was there.
Wish they had Fernets Italian after dinner drink, love that post a big meal!
We had a wonderful dinner. The food was hot and original. Our server was great!!! We would highly recommend this restaurant for a special dinner out!
Giuseppe's consistently had great food and service. Half price bottles of wine on Monday makes it pretty popular to start out the week! Never had an average meal there!
Always one of our favorite restaurants. Never disappoints.
Excellent food, excellent waitress, atmosphere was inviting. Loved sitting in the Lounge and listening to the jazz music.
Our favorite Italian restaurant, food and service are outstanding. Best lasagna I have ever had anywhere.
Always the best meal in Lexington
Food was excellent as always. Great atmosphere, music and food.
We are a regular. As always, great food and service.
Very nice place to eat. High quality food. Friendly staff.
This was our first experience with Giuseppe’s. We ordered an appetizer & two entrees. The appetizer had no flavor. One of the entrees was deliciously seasoned and flavorful and left us both wishing we had ordered it. The other entrée was a “House Favorite” and had zero flavor, was bland, as if no seasonings had been added at all. With the price of each entrée, we expected both dishes to be outstanding but only one left us wanting more. This experience alone and inconsistent seasoning/flavor leave us uninterested in ever trying it again. The service, however, was top notch! Just not enough to bring us back.
From start to finish our meal was excellent. You won't be disappointed!
The food was yummy but we were a little upset with the ambiance. The restaurant is very nice with jazz music and we were put on the outdoor patio. It was cold and you couldn’t hear the music. Definitely a mood killer for a date night occasion.
Also, ordered a salad with our appetizer only to find out when we ordered our entrees that our server said the entree included a salad. Would have been nice to have known that we didn’t need to order one if they came with the entrees.
Went there for a late holiday celebration. The live music was amazing and the food, service and ambience couldn’t have been better.
Great variety including daily selections
Our server was courteous and attentive. The food was excellent. I had the chicken pepperoni and my husband has shrimp scampi in lemon sauce. The chocolate lava cake with ice cream was just the right amount.
We will be coming back
We hadn’t eaten here in years, so we decided to give it a try. It was fantastic.
Food was excellent. We had fried oysters for an appetizer and it was more than enough for two.
Wine list is great. Server did an excellent job without hovering.
We were seated on what appeared to be an enclosed porch. For the full dining experience next time we’ll definitely ask for main dining room.
Absolutely fabulous! The food was wonderful and the service was great! Couldn’t have been a better experience … looking forward to our next visit!
Food was prepared and presented to perfection! Excellent recommendations and knowledge by our waiter. Probably the best meal eating out in 6 months. Ambiance was inviting and relaxing - smooth, live jazz music was perfect - not too loud but able to enjoy the music and conversation all at once. Definitely looking forward to going back in the future.
WE WERE GREETED VERY NICELY AND OUR TABLE LOCATION WE REQUESTED WAS PERFECT. THE MUSIC WAS GREAT AND THE FOOD WAS, AS ALWAYS, DELICIOUS,,, THIS WAS A VERY FINE EVENING AND WE WILL RETURN...KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK.
The food was amazing. The fruti de mar is was phenomenal!
Food and service were excellent.
Corey was an awesome server. He laughed at all our bad jokes! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Beat Italian food in Lexington! Our waitress Mel was awesome!
Service was great, was seated before our reservation, food was very good, and a free dessert for a birthday is very nice. Very happy with our dinner no complaints!
Had heard great things but not what I had expected for the price and the patio was dirty feeling just wasn’t good for first time but the drinks were awesome sauce no skimping on them
One of Lexington’s best Italian restaurants! Had multiple friends recommend this and they were spot on. Great service, food arrived fast and fresh. Will definitely be going back!
Excellent. Very pleased. Highly Recommended. Great experience.
As always, as delicious meal
And fantastic dining experience!
Always excellent food and service. Generous portions -- I always take home leftovers!
Best Italian restaurant in the area. Extensive menu and wine list. Full bar. Well informed and attentive wait staff. Traditional white table cloth approach. Booth was roomy, with good leg room, and permitted a measure of privacy. The culture of the area will not permit a dress code, so if you like to dress for dinner, be prepared for fellow diners in tee shirts, jeans, etc.
Local restaurant. Excellent food and service. We enjoyed our evening.
Everything was A+! I love leaving a restaurant completely satisfied and knowing I’ll be back! And I love the taste of tiramisu that lingered on my tongue and in my memory as the one of the best desserts I’ve ever had the pleasure to taste!
Reserve and go!
Always a great meal and wonderful cocktails. The espresso martini is so good.
The food was excellent and the service couldn’t have been any better.
The only thing I would try and change again is the location of our table.
I had read a review here that said the side room was cold so I requested by text to restaurant the day before that I did not wish to be seated in the side dining room because it is cold there.
Being in our 70’s I wanted to feel comfortable while eating such a nice dinner. My husband is also handicapped and I wanted him comfortable as well.
When being taken to our table, it was in the side room that i had requested not to be in and mentioned this to the young lady but she didn’t offer to seat us anywhere else.
Possibly that was the only place available, as well.
I had to wear my coat the whole time. My hands were cold, too but the thermostat on the wall units of each heater said 72 so it wasn’t terrible.
I’m easily chilled so I had to toughen up.
Other than that one small thing everything was perfect.
We ended taking our leftovers home.
Great food as always. Service on point as always. Can’t miss Italian food.
