Downstairs, celebrate everything in our ristorante from a special occasion to dinner with famiglia, and linger over a little food, a little wine, and a lot of laughter

The food was outstanding and all of our servers were not only nice, but very helpful and actually seemed happy to be working there. The only thing that was a small minus was the lighting. It was slightly too dark, which made it hard to comfortably read the menu.

The food was good, however the pasta dishes were disappointingly on the small side and needed SALT! The service was really slow, not sure if they were understaffed but we were waiting about 20 minutes for drinks and sat most of our meal with empty glasses and had to repeadely ask for new place settings after they were cleared between courses. We also were served our side dish with our appetizers so our main course was served alone. I'd go again because the food was solid but they need some work in the service department.

We went during restaurant week and we were late to our reservation and the staff was still so accommodating and helpful. The food was AMAZING and our server could not have been more pleasant and attentive. Not to mention we had several servers and staff management come by to ask us if we needed anything. I can not wait to go back and was incredibly pleased with our entire dining experience.

Everything was great! Our server Erik was very personable and attentive.
The only thing I would change is pink sofas for seating. The height of the sofa is too low and does not match the height of the chair opposite the table. It’s an awkward height to eat. The table is higher than my arms and hands.

This was my first visit (for restaurant week) and was blown away! I appreciate that everyday items were included on the menu and I was able to experience all Giuseppe & Sons has to offer. I will definitely be back again ... and again ... and again.

Food was excellent but a bit pricey for the amount received. Waitress forgot 1/2 of our salad - it was on two plates for our table of 5. Great wine and ambiance but a bit noisy as the place was completely full. Biggest disappointment was only tiramisu for dessert on Restaurant week. I would go again!

I went to Giuseppe & Sons for Restaurant Week with two friends. It was a delightful time, with delicious food. The tasting menu was perfect for the three of us, but any more and it would likely have been too little. The ambiance of the restaurant is also outstanding, and the house red is highly recommended!

Heard it was good for restaurant week. Should know better... evening started with inattentive bar staff. Four bar tenders at downstairs bar. One immediately gave us bar menus and water, and the spent ten minutes talking to the couple beside us. Finally we had to hail another tender who made our drinks while making drinks for servers tables. Took 15 minutes to get two Negronis.

Dinner: since it was my birthday I decided to splurge on a nice bottle of wine. I asked to talk with the sommelier. I was told he/she was off tonight and so the assistant manager would help...nice guy but knew next to nothing about wine.

Food and Ambiance: I gotta say, the portions were huge, but I felt I was in Maggianos! While friendly the waitstaff was just average. Food was just ok. So many places in Philly to eat, just average at this place. Probably should have stayed away on restaurant week!

Decor was beautiful. I went for restaurant week, I don’t like how they only do “family style” for the menu and you can’t individually choose your meal, the table has to agree on the food. The family style quantity definitely isn’t family style, is enough for 1 person. I didn’t enjoy the flavor of the food. The service was mediocre. I wouldn’t recommend to return, just my preference.

Restaurant week was a great deal, left very full with some leftovers. Everything was delicious. Only thing I did not enjoy was the clams pasta dish. Will definitely return and just avoid the one dish.

Never in my life had such poorly made Italian food. The two pasta dishes we ordered had SO MUCH lime juice and seasoning that the little I ate caused a blister in my mouth. The server was rushing us even though it was 5 PM and the restaurant was 1/3 full. We had a terrible experience overall. Won’t come back.

Love Schulson establishments usually. Not impressed with service and food quality. Waitress constantly tried to up sell us/not super attentive and food was just decent. At this price point I’d like to be able to say the food was great.
