A dining experience like I’ve never had—friendly and knowledgeable staff from the moment you walk in, intimate atmosphere, phenomenal happy hour menu. It was our first time at Giuseppe’s, and our server made us feel right at home. We decided to try many of her recommendations—cocktails (Palma Fizz!!!), calamari, gnocchi, and meatballs. ALL DELICIOUS. Thank you, Britney G! We will be back!!!

My only complaint was that my fish was served over "room temperature" vegetables. They were cold vegetables, and when the fish was placed on top of them, I was eating hot fish with cold potatoes. The fish and vegetables were delicious but the cold and hot together was very disappointing. Our server, Travis, was such a great guy and extremely informative about the menu that he made up for the chef's error in making an incorrect combo of different temperatures for my meal. The room is absolutely beautiful and arranged very nicely.

We were seated in a tiny area above floor level and over a large space below floor level. I started sniffling. We ordered an appetizer and two entrees, all served at once. Food was good. I’m now coughing and sniffling. Needed to try the Termini dessert, so we split an order of tiramisu. A white layer cake arrived. This was nothing like tiramisu ... not a smidge of chocolate dust. At the next table was a full serving of fake “tiramisu”. We won’t be fooled next time since there won’t be a next time. A staff member escorted us to the hidden elevator telling us to eat more next time. Outside, the sniffling and coughing stopped immediately.

My experience was excellent! My friend and I chose to do the chefs tasting for $45 per person and it was well worth it. You get an ample amount of shareable plates. Everything was delicious and even our waiter made a great mocktail for me as I am pregnant. Nothing but good things to say about this place!

An almost perfect experience. The bar is beautiful. The room is so fantastic. They met my request for a booth and great table.
The food is delicious and plentiful. My only criticisms is the way the food comes out.
As soon as we got our pasta course, all are main dishes arrived. There wasn't enough room on the table for everything. Also never received any bread, even after asking for it twice.
No big deal we will be back. It's an awesome place.

Gorgeous space, awful service. Two visits, same experience. The waiter mispronounced items on the menu and talked us into over ordering, stressing their sharing concept. Waited so long for grated cheese to top off our pasta that we had to begin eating so it wouldn't get cold. The table should have been cleaned of crumbs and small spills before the desert menus were put down. Not sure I understand why sides are brought out with the appetizers when a serving of broccoli rabe is clearly meant to be eaten with the entree. That said, the downstairs room is an amazing space, the food is quite good, not as good as the hype. After two tries, not looking to return so quickly. Really wanted to like this place more than we did.

The food and service was terrific. We came at 5:30 and the hostess want to seat us at a small table. We asked for a booth and she was reluctant ( we have reservations she said but the restaurant was empty and huge) the waiter said yes no problem. Thank goodness he did because there was so much food! There would have been no place to put it on a small table!
The food was out of this world. My daughter had the clams and I had the chicken Milanese. Service was top notch.
The only feed back I would give the owners is get bigger tables for your two tops.

We have dined here before and loved it. Now Anthony Santini is the General Mgr and what a great fit. The place just reached the next level. Anthony will make you feel like you are family,his hospitality is what a joint like this needs. The food was as before excellent. The only sad thing was no more braciole on the menu. The veal chop parm melts in your mouth and the scallops were off the hook! This is real Italian food with a great wine list too. With the addition of Mr. Santini Giuseppe & Sons has moved into our #1 Philly spot. A great spot just got better! Kudos to Schulson's for a great hire.

We went to Giuseppe & Sons for the first time for both my and my friend's birthdays. The environment was amazing. Loved the layout and setup! Our server, Malaya, was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and offered recommendations. She had great timing and was super helpful. Our food was delicious! Malaya recommended doing 2-3 plates per person and sharing, if we were not doing the $45 price fix. We did a la carte. For appetizers we all split the meatballs, arancini, burrata and shrimp scampi. One person got a caesar salad as well. For entrees we had linguine with clams, salmon with asaparagus and the gnocci. Then for dessert we split a slice of cake, which they brought out with a sparkler for our birthdays. We discovered at the end of the night that it was Malaya's first night working there. We would have never known. I would HIGHLY recommend Giuseppe & Sons and will definitely be back!

Great experience and excellent food. I was sat 15 min after my reservation, I was having a drink at the bar and honestly didn’t even realize the delay till the GM came to our table and apologized for being sat “late”. The attention to detail to notice something like that as the GM on a Friday evening with a full restaurant was very impressive. The food is on point, service was excellent and we left very happy. I grew up here and visit the city often. I’ll be back.
