“Consistently delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

I am a Giuseppe convert. From the four cheese pizza to the truffle pasta and broccoli and shrimp, everything is fresh and tasty. Granted, the prices are higher than other Italian restaurants, but it's well worth the quality. Bravo!

“two thumbs up”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

I had a little trouble finding it on the map but the taxi driver who took me there right after a subpar experience at another italian restaurant had no problem. This was much more to my liking and I liked the beef carpaccio, the pizza with arugula, which turned out to be lunch the next day. The service was good as well and knew when to assist and when not to. I only had an issue with the lighting which i found too bright as I 'd prefer something softer to make the meal and the experience more relaxing.

“Excellent and nice Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Very clean restaurant, excellent food, not cheap in comparison with other restaurants in Cebu (count +/- 500 PHP/person) but worth the price. Kind, professional and not "pushy" service. We'll certainly go back.

“Stay away from the spaghetti vongole”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

I would have given this place two circles but decided on three because the pizza was really good. It was difficult to choose from the many choices of restaurants in the Banilad area of Cebu. We decided on Giuseppe as that was the recommendation of the hotel front desk. Well, we were a little full from a late lunch and decided to have a pizza and a pasta dish. The pizza was great!!! The pasta which was a spaghetti vongole was a different story. We could not take the clams. Not that there were no clams because there lots of it!!! But when placed in the mouth, it just did not have the clam taste. One wonders if they were canned clams. The pasta was also weird. It was fat spaghetti if there is such a description. And the pasta was bland and did not have the taste of clam juice. It was one of the most disappointing pasta con vongole dish I have had and what made that worse was is that I was having it at a supposedly authentic Italian restaurant. Anyway, since I usually express my disappointment which I did to one of the servers. He just looked at me sheepishly and left our table. Maybe I needed to speak to him in Cebuano? When you are in Cebu and are craving for pizza, go to Giuseppe. Stay away from the spaghetti console though by all means!

“Still the best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013 via mobile

The original and still the best in Cebu for Italian. Refreshingly understated. Very reasonably priced wine list and stellar pizza.
By far the most polished service of all Banilad restos.
