Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited this restaurant while staying locally for work. The food portions were huge and tasty and the staff very friendly. It was nice to see an Italian gentleman serving us in a traditional Italian restaurant. We will be going back and would definitely recommend it.

A little gem of a restaurant. Amazing food, but bring your best appetite as the portions are generous. The owner and staff are wonderful. I had the calamari, very fresh and best I've had in a long time, followed by the rigatoni campagna which had...fantastic flavour.More

Dinner in an authentic Italian restaurant. The host/owner was very friendly and charming. The portions were humongous and delicious. Next time we will try the pizzas as they look good too. We also got some free lemoncino!! Very nice

What a lovely place. Very friendly and welcoming, we ate there last night. They were really busy with Xmas parties but we timed it just right and popped in just beforehand. The staff were really lovely and the food was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed and would...definitely recommend.More

After booking on line and confirming by phone due to no confirmation email there was confusion on arrival as to whether I had booked. I chose the pate which came with warm bread, BUY A DECENT TOASTER. I chose a pizza, certainly not cooked in...a pizza oven as its base was soggy and the cheese barely melted. Having been to their establishment in Hilsea many years ago and being unimpressed then, it would appear nothing has changed. Italian isn't difficult to cook, quite an achievement to get it so bad, The wine was nice, but then that wasn't produced by them.More

The ambience is great. A very family feel and buzzing. Customer service was really great and made my aunt feel very special on her birthday. Portions are huge but still retain quality. We had the sea bass and the pork. Loved the decor too -...opulent but with an authentic Italian vibe. The only improvement I could suggest is perhaps more veg with the mains and maybe a complimentary limoncello at the end 😊 Would definitely return.More

This restaurant is a bit different; we need more of these, not just those that are 'standard' and have nothing unusual to offer. Excellent food and friendly staff. Other diners obviously enjoyed the experience as well. Large portions so don't go if you're not hungry!

Be prepared for a quirky evening accompanied by amazing meal. Giuseppe’s is a truly authentic Italian restaurant in Southsea. We opted to eat outside as we had the dog with us. Giuseppe and his staff couldn’t have been more attentive and helpful. My wife had...a pizza which was delicious and easily big enough for two so we were given a box to take the leftovers away in. My daughter & I had pasta- I personally was in seafood pasta heaven!!! Again very generous portions and superbly cooked. We will be back .More

Took my daughter out for dinner. The staff were fantastic and the food out of this world. The atmosphere, decor, just everything about it was lovely. Will defiantly back, but next time will bring more of the family. Price wasn’t bad either.
