Great food at a reasonable price. Not much ambiance. Outdoor patio is very small and over looks a parking lot. Service is friendly, but very slow.

Great food and service, totally enjoyed our dining experience. We have recommended this place to several people since we dined there. We are here on vacation for two weekends, but certainly will consider going again before we return home.

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.

It’s been awhile seen we had been here. We had friends in from out of town and we all want Italian and causal. We had always had great fun and great meals here and our meal here was everything we have in past. The owner was most engaging. We had a ball

This is a great place. The food is fantastic and the service is really good. It's a small restaurant hurting a bit from covid. It was featured by Guy Fieri with good reason. Please go visit this restaurant and eat indoors. Cindy is fantastic!

Food was great but several tables came in after us and we're served well before us. Our server, Cindy was wonderful but had to keep answering the phone for takeout orders and had to leave the dine in guests waiting. When we commented on the long wait for our food, owner gave all kinds of excuses and was rude. He should have helped Cindy because she was the only server, but he was too important. We won't be returning- there are just too many other good restaurants competing with this one.

Love this place! Go a few times a month if possible. Great food, wine and service and Chef Bock is so nice to greet everyone. Sit outside if you can but the inside is so quaint and fun. Please go here!!

Weird experience. Went here on a date because I watched them featured on Diners,Drive ins, and Dives. Must have been old episode because the food and service were nothing to write home about.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. It's true what they say about simple, privately-owned restaurants - the appetizers and food were excellent. Not commercially perfect, but definitely "Nona's Kitchen" delicious.

Cute little place that you can tell many regulars frequent. But it isn’t a romantic atmosphere for date night, if that is what you are going for.
Being from Chicago, I guess my standards were too high? I’m assuming people from Arizona don’t do the same Italian traditions as people from Chicago? Like olive oil and Parmesan cheese for bread before dinner, candles on the tables, etc....
We were also seated at the two person table in the hallway, so we caught all the traffic walking past, including regulars who wanted to look at celebrity’s pictures hanging over our table, without a mask.
The food was average. Nothing I haven’t had before at a lower price point, chain restaurant. Maybe there was something I was missing. Or again, maybe my standards were too high.
It’s not a waste of money, the food was good, but I’m not sure it would be my first choice for my next Italian meal.

If you want to support a small business, and you love Italian food, this is the place to go. The owner was helpful with our wine selection and so much fun. Garlic bread is delicious! Must have the avocado salad!
