The pizza is great, the problem is, the place can become too hot, so you will not be able to enjoy the good food they serve. We just took out the pizza the following day.

This is definitely authentic Italian food. My wife and I have been to Italy several times and our dinner at Giuseppe's was almost as good as any we have had in Italy. The focaccia bread was outstanding. It was a flatbread pizza cooked in their charcoal oven with garlic and other spices. My wife likes to always have eggplant parmesan at good Italian restaurants and she thought this was one of the best she has ever had. I had the special homemade marucci pasta in a marinara meat sauce. Again outstanding. We would highly recommend this restaurant and hope to go again before we leave.

We are a group of 10 people stuck in Cebu in the middle of a tropical storm and after a bad experience at the Movenpick where we were staying we decided we needed to eat good food. Following a suggestion by a concierge, we walked across the road to this little homely Italian restaurant. Skeptical at first on what Italian in Cebu would taste like, but man were we blown away!

First ambience - seats about 20 people so quite cute and small, with the kitchen counter in view and a brick wall stocked with wine. Could be very romantic but equally homely for large groups who just want to enjoy a good meal with good company.

Next the food. Amazing! Wine suggestions were spot on. Specials board was very inviting. Starters - baked eggplant, smoked buffalo cheese, focaccia bread, and tomato soup were all stellar! Diablo pizza came with an extremely spicy dip which was a show stealer - wow! But the hands down crowd favourite was the tagliatelle pasta with truffle cream. Hint: ask for some garlic added to it, it really brings out the truffle taste ! We licked that plate clean! Parrot fish main course was also very unique. Finally, tiramisu is the benchmark of any Italian restaurant, and this did not disappoint! Overall first dinner on Cebu was simply as good as it could get! Would definitely come back again before we leave Cebu in 4 days.

Comes highly recommended as a restaurant with great great food, cozy ambience, very attentive service and as good as Italian ought to be!

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!
