Giuseppe's Ristorante Italiano
I always have a great experience here. Excellent service and food!
We made reservations for my mother’s 80th birthday. The cocktails were delicious as well as the appetizers- love the risotto balls! I had the French onion soup, my son had the white bean- both were very tasty! Our entrees were equally as delicious. Our server was outstanding. Overall, it was a great experience. One of our favorite places to dine.
From the drink at the bar served by our favorite bartender Norman to our wonderful server Ruby, our experience was great. The pasta with Italian sausage was delicious if you like authentic spicy sausage. My carbonara was delicious. We have had excellent meals and service with each visit. And we can actually hear each other talk! The ambiance is perfect for a dinner with friends at one of the best restaurants in Lexington.
Always a favorite! The saxophone music was a pleasant surprise.
Great Italian food in the Lexington market. The local entertainment is subdued for a quiet dinner.
Great service and food
We had the grouper and the salmon, both were tasteless. Very unsatisfied this time. However, last time my husband had Redfish and it was prepared very well, and I had the chicken dish with pesto cream sauce which was great. I think the fish dishes are not consistently good. Overall, food has been good but this was an expensive disappointment. We will be back though, so thank you for your willingness to make an effort to improve your menu.
Always superior! Never disappoints. Birthday dinner for 8. Added 2, 2 were trying to calm their baby so were in and out. Took it ALL in stride!
Sunday brunch was exceptional and a great value. The service and ambiance at Giuseppe's is always the best.
This is my second time at Giuseppe’s, although it has been several years. I was underwhelmed the first time and only came a second time because I received a gift certificate. Parking is very difficult, as it is mostly on the street. The food is mediocre and certainly not worth the price, in my opinion. My husband and I had Caesar salads; his had no dressing and mine had limp lettuce, and soggy bread crumbs. Our main course of pasta was good, but not worth $24 and $26 respectively. Dessert was the best part of the meal; chocolate lava cake and cannoli. Our bill was $80 and change. We did not drink or have appetizers. I have no desire to return to this restaurant a third time and instead will spend my money at another Lexington dining establishment.
Great place. Celebrating anniversary and birthday. Food, service, atmosphere was great. Music provided by David hall was icing on the cake, very nice adding to the ambiance, nice selection from jazz standards to pop. Highly recommend. We shall return!
Fantastic meal and service! Todd was excellent!!!
Giuseppe’s is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is excellent and the service outstanding. It is a quiet, intimate restaurant enhanced with soft jazz music, usually sax or trumpet live in the bar. It is a great atmosphere for a high quality, leisurely dining experience.
Food was, as always, great. I keep ordering the same dish because I would hate to leave without having it. Service was good and timely but not outstanding, as in very friendly. It was my wife's birthday and I'd requested as quiet a table as possible. Given the room size and how busy you were, that wish was accomplished. We will certainly be back and are always recommending others try you out.
Giuseppe’s never fails to deliver a GREAT dining experience! From the Gnocchi appetizer to the Carbonara entrees (American and Italian) the food was outstanding and served with 1st class service. The soft jazz sax was a perfect environment. Felt like a big time big city restaurant. Commit to frequent more often.
Fabulous food, ambience and service! Would highly recommend and I can’t wait to go back!
Favorite Italian restaurant-Interior needs to be updated.
I love the food and atmosphere, never disappoints. One of the very very best in Lexington!
Will be back soon!
The food was great. Service was excellent. Management was attentive, therefore, the celebration was superb! Chicken with thyme sauce was yummmmy and red fish excellent our compliments to the chef and staff!!!
Delicious food. Great service. Well worth the money!
It was my daughter’s anniversary dinner. She and my son-in-law loved their dinner!!
Food and serving size were excellent. Our server was absolutely fantatic, thank you again Devon!
Awesome service. Our meal was delicious and we had a great time. It was also half off a bottle of wine night.
Great food and drinks. We love Giuseppe's. Monday half price bottles of wine.
Everyone in our group had a wonderful time. Our server was attentive and his recommendations were awesome. Food was great from the appetizers to our entrees. Love, love the chocolate martinis.
It was great! Had never been for brunch and really enjoyed it.
Our server was MIA most of the evening. Too top it all off, we were seated in the bar area, complete with crappy music and a screaming little girl. So much for an enjoyable date night!
Food is amazing, tons of options, friendly service, great date location, I go for every yearly anniversary
I'm a hearing aid wearer and the noise level was a bit loud overall - but music played by a live musician was kept reasonable although hearing my wife sitting next to me became an issue with others in the restaurant being overtly loud and in my estimation obnoxious. Naturally Giuseppe's can't control that but perhaps next time we'll ask to be placed on the quieter side if possible. This WAS a bit loud until a couple of the tables finally got up and left. Noisy people, coupled with music and general close-space environment - plus with my hearing aids, which I could have turned down, was a bit too loud for me and if I HAD turned down my hearing aids then the conversations with my wife would have been harder to have. NOT restaurant's fault again however.
The food was very good! Chicken Marsala very good and came out Hot with hot plate!! Excellent, that is finer dining 101!!! Yeah!! Great job!! Salad bread & butter tasty!! Desert excellent! Keep up the great job! Pay your employees well they deserve it!!
Fabulous all around. Service was attentive without being intrusive, food was extraordinary. great wine and bourbon selection. Great music.
Excellent food and service. We eat there frequently and always enjoy the experience. They have live jazz music on the weekends.
We had our 1 year wedding anniversary dinner and it was excellent. The food was amazing, the service was great and the food was absolutely delicious! We will definitely be back!
Went on my birthday 🎂. Everything was great. Food was great,
Had a very enjoyable night out! Food and service were outstanding! Food was fresh and tasty!
Giuseppe’s is our favorite Italian restaurant in Lexington. For many years it has consistently been delicious. The wait staff has always been informative, attentive, and polite. Their standard menu offers are so good, but they also offer nightly specials that are interesting and unique. If you’re looking for a wonderful meal or apace for a special occasion, Giuseppe’s is the place to go!
Wonderful classic ambience, great chicken piccata and capers, excellent service, smooth delicious wine, free anniversary dessert....what are you waiting for? :) Just sorry we were too early for the saxophone player.
