Wonderful lunch. Service for a table of 14 was accurate, and timely. All the plates presented nicely and everyone enjoyed what they ordered.

I got this as a recommendation for an anniversary dinner with my wife. Make sure you are paying attention if you are driving from Lexington because it comes up quickly. The food and environment were both good. We had the gnocchi as an appetizer which was delicious. I had the beef tenderloin which was good. I had the Gorgonzola salad... More

A fabulous meal with wine and friends. Have been before and will definitely return. Best bar for the money. A diamond in the rough.

Giuseppe's was suggested to us by some "locals" as a good after Keeneland spot so we tried it. All tables were spoken for until 9:30 so we sat at the bar and had a wonderful time! Started with the Prosciutto & Provolone wrapped Asparagus, very good. Split a Saltinbocca entree and salad that was fabulous and had food to spare.... More

I visited Family and Lexington, KY. and we made reservations at Giuseppe's for four. I was the only one who had never been there of the four of us and they each raved about this restaurant. I am now raving about it as well. Though not large it is well laid out and provided pleasant and relatively private seating in... More

We found this place via a billboard on the highway. It was a very quiet upscale place with jazz music. The good was good but not over the top. We split a pasta dish. I enjoyed a glass of wine here as well. It's defiantly worth checking out,

Once we found Giuseppe's, it was worth the journey. Everyone was delighted with their selections except for me. I had the linguine with clam sauce and it was too salty. Service was ok. Our waitress had too many tables, so it wasn't her fault. I must go to when you visit Lexington.

We went here for our wedding anniversary, the people could not have been more helpful to us they also gave us desert for our special occasion. The food was excellent, it was some of the best Italian food that we had eaten and I don't say that lightly since I'm from New Orleans which is hard to beat good food.... More

A friend and I each ordered an entrée; shared the filet medium rare and the fish special which was the Halibut. We also had the stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. The steak was very tender and flavorful... I found the Halibut bland but must confess I didn't have the sauce so that may have been my mistake. I would have... More
