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.

Food superb! Although no steak or stroganoff on a Saturday night! Asked for frites instead of the standard potatoes they offer! Very busy and service was truly terrible! The food was good!

Truely unique restaurant bursting with charisma. Excellent quality food, the staff like to get to know their customers and the live music can’t fail to put a smile on your face. Try the sea food spaghetti, lobster ravioli or the chicken crème funghi. That’s amore...and I want more…More

I have been here before and throughly enjoyed my experience however last nights experience was the total opposite. Booked for a group of 8 at 630 , had the confirmation email with me only to be told by the most dismissive man that he didn’t...have it in his book regardless of the confirmation they had sent me ! There was no apology just disdain and no attempt to try to salvage the situation. I get that there might have been a mix up but to embarrass us as a group of 8 in a tiny restaurant was utterly disappointing and no attempt to acknowledge that we had a booking was met by us as well as lots of hand waving . By the time he actually admitted someone could have taken the booking ( er yes I had it in my email!) it didn’t matter as it wasn’t in his book! Therefore if you are reading this Giuseppes , your man requires a big lesson in customer etiquette. In a time where we want to support local resteraunts , you may not have needed a large groups booking but the way you dealt with us was not expected and throughly rude and embarrassing. We won’t be returning and as a reader if you do book here from what I recall the food was nice but do check ahead to make sure that they have your reservation!More

This is my second visit to Giuseppe's and I would highly recommend it as an excellent & authentic Italian restaurant, very close to London Bridge and Borough Market. The entrance is via a small passage way, through a side door and down some stairs -...don't be put off by the entrance as inside you will find a warm, welcoming, albeit it no-frills restaurant, serving wonderful Italian food. I was there with my sisters and we all had bruschetta to start, followed by pasta dishes, all delicious and generous portions. There were 3 of us, we had starters, mains, coffee and 2 bottles of red wine and it was £180. Special mention must go to the wonderful waiters who were polite, helpful and attentive. I will most definitely return, thank you.More

Found this place on Google maps whilst in the area visiting London…at first when we arrived we were disappointed as it just looked like a takeaway but found the main door hidden down the side alley. When we arrived we hadn’t booked but the waiter...found us a table but explained that we only had an hour as the table was booked. When we looked around we saw that every single table was booked all night long…just shows what a great place it must be. Service was great and food delicious. I had the chicken Milanese and my husband had the bolognese and both were lovely Very intrigued to find they have a disco from midnight til 4am 😂 defo go back for thatMore

We had never been to this restaurant before and wanted somewhere close to London Bridge Station. As it transpires the choice was inspired. We loved the ambiance and the slightly dated appearance of the restaurant, but the clincher was the food, which was delicious, real...Italian cooking. We would recommend Guiseppe's to anyone and we fully intend to return.More

you won't believe what happened! So, my brother decided to go out for dinner, pre a concert, and service, and let me tell you, the food was absolutely amazing. But you know what made the whole experience even better? Giuseppe, this awesome guy who came...over and talked to us, shook our hands, and acted like the total boss on stage. He made us feel so special, like we were the most important customers in the whole place.More

From the moment my daughter and I walked in the door (without reservations) we were treated like family. The small quaint atmosphere and attentive staff of ZAZZA, MASSIMO, LUIGI, AURONIO and of course GIUSEPPE the owner were impeccable. We ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese made fresh...that morning. Every bite was a delight, I cannot wait to return to Giuseppe's. Highly recommended!!!! We will be back!More

Family trip to London, fancied a top quality authentic Italian. After much searching, decided on Giuseppe’s, near Borough market. Made a reservation - no problemo ! Lovely authentic italian restaurant tucked away off the main road, typical old school Italian decor. Service was good, food...was amazing, bruschetta, pasta, pizza - delicious! washed down with a smooth house red. The main man was in the house, Giuseppe (owner) himself, enjoying food and wine with friends. He took the time to greet and speak with diners, and we had a selfie with him. lovely touch ! Gratis round of limoncello shots and the Italian job was done and dusted. La ringrazio molto Giuseppe’s ! - Highly recommended.More

Love this place. Visited on a Saturday evening with friends and family. The place was rocking Live singer doing the classic swing songs, the atmosphere was fantastic Food wise, the bruschetta was amazing, and the calamari got an ‘amazing and beautiful’ rating from my son....The pizzas are freshly made and good size, and I was reliable informed that the pasta dishes are also amazing To top the night off, Giuseppe himself did the rounds and spoke to everyone and made the evening even better It’s classic rustic Italian and worth a visitMore

Very low-end product, the price is way too expensive. The ham is an industrial quality ham while the pizza costs £18 The waitress is not friendly, to be avoided.
