What a wonderful experience! From the moment we walked in, greeted by the owner and chef, Richard Bock, to the attentive service and exceptional food, we had a great dining experience. We have been looking for Italian food that matched the food from the Northeast that we grew up with, and tried multiple Italian restaurants in AZ, and we finally hit the mark at Giuseppe’s. Delicious! Tender homemade pasta, flavorful dishes, and fun conversations with Chef Bock. The ambiance is quaint and casual and the food is outstanding. We had pasta carbonara, osso buco, black ink pasta with clams, and ravioli stuffed with lobster. All incredibly tender and delicious. We will be back!

Out of a few things - portions smaller than they used to be which is understandable I guess but the food is still great

They were very accommodating since there were 11 of us and quite a few kids. The waitstaff was amazing. The food though, was so so good. I will for sure be back (but with less kids next time).

The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. I had the Bolognese Ragu which was excellent. The others in my party all enjoyed their selections very much as well. Rich, the owner, stopped by multiple times and talked with us. Overall we had a nice dinner and enjoyable evening. We sat outside so I don't know what the atmosphere inside might be like.

The food was good but not as great as expected. Our waitress was outstanding but I thought it was a little expensive compared to the serving size. The Air Conditioning did not work well and the ambience is only okay.

Went to dinner for a birthday celebration. The other couple had never been before. They loved the food and the place. The owner is very friendly. The Pasta was very good the rice balls were good, and the salad was very fresh. The service could use a little work. They were not busy and it seemed like forever to get drinks and the server could have used a bit more training on speedier service. She was kind just seemed a bit shy and unsure of herself. When it became a bit busier, the owner should fill waters or bring bread to tables to help her out. Again he is very personable, however, help your staff by giving them the training they need to succeed. Loved it will go back again. If you don't like tight places, try the patio for dining.

Service was poor--the server abruptly plopped a pitcher of water down (with no glasses) and asked us "what we decided," without introducing herself, asking for our drink order, or asking if we had questions about the menu. She never followed up after our entrees were delivered to ask how we liked them. We were sat down behind a huge party and my husband had to constantly move his chair to accommodate the other server to move amongst that other table. She never approached our table again after delivering the entrees; we had to flag her down and ask for the check. The food was ok. Never going back again.

The owner Giuseppe greeted us at the door and treated us like family. We saw him go table to table and interact with the diners without being intrusive. The food was outstanding. I had the chicken Parmesan which was flavorful and my wife had the lasagna which I was envious of. Will go again whenever we are back in the Phoenix area.

As an Italian, I rarely go out for Italian food. This place was amazing. The chef/owner was hospitable and checked on us often. The food was some of the best. You feel like you are in Italy after one bite. Highly recommend. We will be back

The baked ziti was the best I've ever had and I'm very picky. In most of the Italian restaurants I've been to, the tomato sauce tastes like they opened a can of sauce and heated it up but not here ... the sauce was perfect at Giuseppe's. Their hot flourless chocolate cake topped with a scoop of spumoni ice cream was like a lava cake except that the lava part seemed to run through the entire cake and I couldn't stop eating it. I will definitely be back again and again. I wish they were open for lunch.
