Giuseppe's Ristorante Italiano
served in a roasted red pepper cream sauce with fontina and romano cheeses
chicken breasts lightly breaded, fried and stuffed with pepperoni and provolone, served over a bed of spaghetti with marinara
Awesome food and service!!
Great pasta (I had the steak and pasta, and my wife had some sort of manicotti dish), great looking appetizers, but a mediocre garden salad with some brown bits on the lettuce (among the least appetizing salads I've ever had at an Italian restaurant), but overall the food was pretty good. The service was sub-par, even on a relatively slow night. My wife and I decided to forego dessert (which we'd both planned to have) because we calculated that it would likely take one more hour. Again, the service was very slow (the support staff seemed more interested in finding the right ESPN channel behind the bar than helping our waitress).
Our waitress brought the bill out along with the dessert menu--and, to me, that's a sure sign that they'd rather you move along home. So we did! And sourced dessert someplace else.
The prices are really good, so no complaints there. The restaurant looks very clean and looks nice inside. There's ample seating on the patio too. Looks like they're taking Covid seriously, which is laudable.
Would we return? Ehhh, maybe? But we'd probably rather try something else.
Outstanding Italian food. Not just spaghetti and lasagna, real food. Reservations are highly recommended. We were there on a Wednesday evening and they were packed. Walkins might be possible after 8 pm.
We love the consistency of this restaurant, always good!!
Great as always. Excellent food, drinks and service. Our waiter Cory is the best.
Awesome meal on the patio
Great food and atmosphere!
Very nice. My companion was a first time customer and an ethnic Italian. She was impressed.
Food is fabulous as always. I love the Marsala Chicken. My husband got one of the Chef's Special, which he said was very savory. It was our anniversary and we got free desserts. The food and the people are always divine and lovely. Beautiful place for an anniversary or birthday.
We were visiting from Huntington WV which is a nice 2hour getaway for us. The food was great and the service was excellent. Very good atmosphere and friendly staff. We will definitely return to try more of the awesome items on the menu.
Amazing food, good service, and they gave us a free dessert since we were celebrating! Will definitely go back for special occasions.
Guiseppe’s is the place my husband and I go for any special reason. It is our absolute favorite. The service is always impeccable. The drinks from the bar are fantastic. And the food is always top notch. We both tried new things this time, I ordered the lobster ravioli and my husband ordered the pan fried grouper special and both were delicious. We’ve never been disappointed in anything we’ve ordered. We usually take desserts to go and they are always really good, whether we eat them the same day or the next.
Everything was good, Only thing I was disappointed in my ribeye and having to fight so many flies out on the patio
We were one of only two tables in the whole restaurant and for some reason it took forever to be attended to. Tea was disgusting. Prices were too high. Food was just okay.
Everything was excellent!! Even tho we are living through this damn pandemic, the staff was courteous and professional. Food was delicious! I have been going there for 30 years and it gets better every year!!! Love it and recommend it 👍.
Our party of 6 had a great time. We were served and everyone who worked with us was kind helpful and engaging. Great atmosphere!
Everything was delicious! The service was great! Thanks.
This is one of the favorite restaurants in Lexington for my wife and I. We have been there numerous times and have never been disappointed. We've recommended it to others and they were pleased as well.
Giuseppe’s is always great! You cannot go wrong with the service and the food is impeccable!!! One of our favorite places!!!
The service was excellent, food was great, parking was very tight. Was a little over priced in my opinion.
Great as always! Our go-to destination for every special occasion. Food and service was excellent and the social distanced tables made for a very relaxing and stress-free dinner.
Food was great, some of best pasta we have had! Service was great as well. Sat outside on balcony and enjoyed wonderful jazz music. Will definitely be back!
We celebrated my Girlfriend’s birthday. Food was great. Service was excellent. 10/10 recommend this for a quality dinner
I had heard a lot about the food at this restaurant being really good, and I have to say that I wasn't disappointed, this was one of the best Italian food restaurants I've eaten at! My wife and son will agree with me that everything we had from appetizers to entrée was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Giuseppe's to anyone looking for great atmosphere and amazing Italian food to go there! Oh I forgot to mention the bread, tasted like it just came out of the oven! Thank you Giuseppe's for the great meal and great service!
Great food and service!
The food, as always was excellent. Drinks were good. Service was good, perhaps somewhat tempered by the quarantine restrictions.
Went for a romantic birthday dinner and Giuseppes didn't disappoint. Neither of us had been before and we were both pleasantly surprised. I'm sure we will return in the future.
I’ve always loved this place and overall everything was great but the boloñesa is not very good and too liquid like.
Other than that great!!
Food and Service were great, I would recommend to anyone!
My favorite restaurant! Wonderful ambience, great dinner music and outstanding service.
I enjoy everything about the restaurant. It has an expansive menu of Italian classics as well as offering some local adaptations. The service is friendly and solicitous and the ambiance of the restaurant is both warm and welcoming. Everything I’ve had from the menu is prepared well. Particularly impressive is the tutti di mare. It had more seafood in it than pasta! Normally places cheat you on the seafood, not Guiseppes! They load it up. And the sauce is a perfect mix of creamy and spicy.
The only thing that could use a bit of improvement is the wine list. It’s more limited than you might expect for a restaurant of its kind. Other than that, I think it’s an excellent restaurant. Highly recommended!
Table, wine, food, service, dessert- It was all WONDERFUL. One of my favorite places in Lexington and each time is a new and pleasant experience
If you're in the mood for Italian and haven't tried this place, do yourself a favor and get there! The food is amazing, great atmosphere, always had great service and an overall good experience. Its not the cheapest Italian menu in town, but if you care about quality, its well worth alil extra. Its a great spot for a special date. I highly recommend it to everyone!
Loved sitting outside on the patio. Flies were persistent, but everything else was great!
Five stars on all categories should say it all. On top of 5-star ambiance and exceptional food, my twin granddaughters and I enjoyed excellent service from our waiter, Joey and an altogether wonderful evening. Giuseppe's is just plain classy. I would gladly give it 10 stars if that rating was available!
Awesome. From food to service
Even during a pandemic Giuseppes makes everything special. The service was perfect. The food was wonderful. Giuseppe’s is THE place to go for a wonderful experience.
