Giuseppe's Ristorante Italiano
served in a roasted red pepper cream sauce with fontina and romano cheeses
Corey was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. Helped us celebrate my daughters 21st birthday.
Excellent food & service. Love Monday night half priced wine bottles! Great Martinis too.
Our entrees were fish and they were all over cooked. The drinks and appys were the best. Disappointed. 🥴 over $300 for 4 of us too. We did have a $45 bottle of wine. It was delicious.
Delicious food. Haven’t been here in quite a while but came for a birthday. Loved it.
Ate out on the patio and listen to some nice jazz.
We had such a perfect 40th Birthday celebration. The food was prepared perfectly even accommodating gluten free and vegan diners! Highly recommend!
Just a wonderful experience with amazing food!
Ambiance would have been 5 star but the location of our table for 8 was too dark. Several of us had to use phone light to read menu
Our waitress was great. Very laid back but very accommodating! My pasta was delicious!
Everything was wonderful including the service.
The menu is chock full of Italian classics, some with a local spin on them. There’s something to please everyone. My meal was excellent. The wine list expansive and appropriate to the cuisine. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Everything was excellently prepared, fresh, tasty, and well presented.
(One minor recommendation: if a patron asks for some wine tastes before deciding what to buy, just bring a small taste. Don’t tell the patron, “we don’t have a license for that.” It’s inelegant. Italian dining is about the bella figura. You don’t need a special license to share a very small taste of wine with a patron to help him or her decide what to buy. No one’s going to call the police or turn you in. You’ll sell more wine by making your wines easily accessible.)
Highly recommended in every way.
Always good food here, but was disappointed with my ribeye. There was no seasoning so it was just bland. I’ll stick to pasta dishes here in the future as they are always amazing.
Go once a year- never disappoints
Food, service and staff wonderful. We had three July birthdays amongst our group practicing distancing due to virus. We come every year to eat dinner. All of us appreciated that you took temperatures when arriving.
Service is always excellent. The food is amazing. We visit at least 3 or 4 times a year. This is one of our favorite restaurants. Lasagna and chicken piccata are wonderful dishes. Homemade cannoli’s and creme brûlée are to die for.
Our favorite place for date night... for the past 10 years.!
As soon as I took my first bite of steak I looked at my husband and said this was the best steak I have ever eaten. It was amazing!
Everything about the experience was excellent!
Food was excellent , we had the fruitti de mare. Service was great. Ambiance a little weird with the Covid restrictions but overall very nice.
Giuseppe's always delivers. Exceptional food and service. Quiet ambiance.
The food was uninspired - honestly I think most of it came from a can or the freezer. The salad dressings for instance were not made “in house” by any means the sauces were very salty and lumpy like gravy. The bread offering is as no better than Aldi $.99 loaf.
The service was terrible. First the silver was wrapped in cloth and Saran Wrap (fine I get being cautiously clean), but when the waiter comes to take the bread plate (which apparently doubles as an appetizer plate as well), he picks up my knife and fork “in case I need it later”. WTF, is washing the utensils a once per night activity that I can have clean ones for another course? Then the waiter made a mistake on my wife’s meal, (okay, fine people mess up - even me sometimes) but then he went about taking care of other tables for 15 minutes. By the time we saw him again (sans correct order) I was done eating my TV dinner. He “graciously” offered to box up the proper meal (which was “nearly ready”) but since we were traveling from out of town couldn’t really take it.
In the end, I paid $70 for one appetizer, 1 entree, and a glass of wine. Won’t be going back again for sure.
Easy online reservation, warm welcoming upon arrival a restaurant, and food delicious as always.
Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The ambiance was delightful. We will be back soon.
Very nice and enjoyable. Our server was excellent. I believe his name was Devin. The food was outstanding!
Wonderful service, amazing food, range of prices, great by the glass list of wine.
Experience, food, employees were all great
The service was excellent. The food was deciduous & the jazz player did a wonderful job.
Amazing! Our waiter, Cory I believe was his name was prompt and patient and great knowledge of menu! Also extremely safe atmosphere! Bueno!
My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary choosing a restaurant that we had never visited together. Under the circumstances with the current safety precautions the staff and restaurant did an amazing job. The food was excellent and the service was amazing. We can't wait until our future date nights so we can eat here again.
This is definitely our favorite restaurant in Lexington. Food is delicious and service is always excellent.
Very enjoyable even during Covid. Service was great!
One of the best spots in Lexington. Period.
We hadn't been to Giuseppe's for a while and it was even better than we remembered. I had Carbonara Italianoh was one of the best I have ever had. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass and the citrus cream sauce was phenomenal. Make reservations early they are always busy.
You drive up and think this can't be the restaurant you wanted. Then you walk inside. Place is amazing. Great for date night, anniversary, or just because. Had the real saltimbocca. It was awesome. The scallops with risotto appetizer is incredible. Scallops tasted like the were fresh from the ocean. Don't forget the desserts. This place is a must.
Awesome food and wine
Enjoyed a wonder birthday dinner with friends for 2 hours. Our server Todd gave us space but always showed us just at the right time. The food was excellent as always.
Felt very safe with the Covid 19 restrictions eating inside a restaurant. Food was awesome. Service wonderful. Recommend to anyone.
52 nd wedding anniversary. A favorite place to go to for a good meal and service!
Fantastic food and service, as always. The wine was great, pasta is always amazing, and server was friendly. Good precautions in place for Covid
