Great service but the chicken parm was so flat it was chewy. The shrimp scampi was divine!

We had wonderful service in a the beautiful space however the food was mediocre at best.
We had called numerous times to increase our party to two more people and we were repeatedly told the restaurant was totally booked. Upon arrival and through out the evening we saw a TOTALLY EMPTY RESTAURANT. Why would you discourage people from coming and not accepting a slightly larger group? I even mentioned this to the hostess who did not have an answer for me. Another incompetent!
Won't be back or recommend this restaurant.

The Vibe and design of the space was amazing. The food was good overall. Some dishes like Chicken Parm and asparagus were fantastic. Chicken Piccata was good missed expectations. I would try again as the place has a unique and vibrant feel and an amazing appearance.

The only negative, and it’s significant, is that the noise in the back dining room was ridiculously loud and uncomfortable. It was very difficult four our party of four to have a conversation. I’d never be seated in the back again and would only dine in the front open room.

We had a table of 4 around 8pm on a Friday night....I’m not sure if a bartender and a cook called out but it was the worst experience we’ve ever had. Our drinks took 20 minutes to come....in fact 3 of our appetizers came out before our drinks!! 3 out of 4 of our main courses came out but the 4th main course came out 15 minutes later so she had to eat alone or we had to let our food get cold. It was completely unacceptable. They comp’d our 4 entrees and have us a free dessert, but it still ruined our night out. We will not be back, at least on a busy night. This place has gone downhill.

Less than stellar meal. Food portions were small and could be seasoned better. For a mainstay Italian restaurant Veal Parm was small and bland and the pasta and sausage entree was also small for the price charged. Small plates were good and seasoned nicely but very small portions.
Waiter was nice but too scripted and very hard to hear also tried too hard to sell more food. Ambience is nice that was the best part of the meal. Otherwise was not worth the money spent.

I am originally from South Philly moved two years ago i been following you on instagram and couldnot wait to visit and have dinner. I met my sister for a birthday dinner and theater and our service was awesome our waiter was great with recommending we did the tasting. Everything was delicious and the manager made sure we enjoyed our meal and asked if we need anything. There is nothing like South Philly Italian cooking and our dessert a Cannoli was sooo good too.

I already told a bunch my friends they must go and do the tasting.

Best of luck with the restaurant.
Happy Easter.

It was good. They need a new management team quite honestly. The waitress was great. The drinks took forever. They forgot the app we ordered. My entree came out 20 minutes later than my dates. The manager was so aloof. Typically love this groups restaurants but his just was not good.

The house salad was crisp and the dressing light. The octopus in the appetizer was tender. The pasta special with the peas and asparagus was delicious. The gnocchi were like pillows. My friend ordered the swordfish and asked for the companata on the side. All requests were honored. The server was attentive. The bottles of wine were pricey. We would go back again, however.

They are quickly becoming my favorite restaurant in Center City. Impeccable service, cuisine and cocktails. The environment is so pretty and Although you are in a very large room they have designed the environment to feel like small dining environments. Do go!

Our experience at Giuseppe & Sons was amazing. We have enjoyed other Michael Schulson restaurants and heard great things about Giuseppe & Sons. First, they were extremely accommodating to our party running late, which we truly appreciated. Like other Schulson Collective restaurants, dining here was an experience and cannot be rushed. Our server, Lisa, was the best!! She knew the menu inside and out and could speak to everything. Based on her recommendations, we decided to do the chef's tasting, which was a great deal for the price. The food was impeccable - the cannoli at the end was the BEST part. We will definitely be back!

Too Much... too much salt in the food, overexuberant waiter, too dark in the dining room to the point that at many times people were looking at the menu with the light from their cell phones. Also, the room was too large and looked like dining room of a cruise ship. Honestly, the food was just fair. Many other places in Philadelphia with much better food and better value.
