There’s a quiet country road hiding near one of Lexington’s busiest intersections. Tucked down the lane in a tree-lined cove, Giuseppe’s has been serving great Italian cuisine serenaded by live music for the last 25 years. Renowned for its fresh fish and seafood, hand-cut steaks, traditional and contemporary pasta dishes, homemade desserts and extensive wine list, Giuseppe’s captures its guests with the ambiance of candlelight, easy sounds of slow jazz and a taste of passion which flows from your fork, making every dish its own invitation to return. Whether you prefer a table in the main dining room, the lounge, or the patio, Giuseppe’s is the perfect romantic spot for dates and anniversaries, and it’s also a favorite for large gatherings of family and friends. Giuseppe’s Private Dining Room provides a relaxed, intimate venue for business and social events. That is how something so hidden still stands out, and that is why those who find us return again and again.

Service was rushed, and the entrees seemed more formulaic. Alfredo sauce was thin and runny. Other entrees were delighted with their choices. Still a lovely place to visit, but more crowded and less romantic than we recall. Still a fine place for Italian in Lexington.

The noise level was so loud I couldn’t hear the live jazz…and I was about 10-15 ft away. Took 20 min for our waitress to offer to get us drinks. The food was good but a bit over priced. Drinks were good and standard lunch priced. Overall pretty good. Just won’t be a place I choose first but will go with friends if they chose it.

The setting was not as nice as I had hoped for an anniversary dinner. I think it is the giant TV's and the sports bar feel that took away some of the ambiance of the jazz music playing in the background. I will definitely go back, but for a more casual occasion to listen to the live music and enjoy the fantastic food.

Could not eat them. But we was refunded for the steaks so it turned out ok. Always have a great time there. Love the staff 💕👍🏻

Our waitress was wonderful, smiled, was pleasant, suggested a wine. The food, app, and dessert were delicious! Portions are large. Salad was amazing. The only negative was lighting was little too low for a few of us. Otherwise amazing experience.

The only issue we had was our table on the "patio." If we had known they were seating people in the recently converted outdoor area we would have requested an indoor table. We felt like we were dining at a seafood shack in FL. Everything else was excellent.
