“rehearsal dinner”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

We recently enjoyed our daughter's wedding rehearsal dinner at Giuseppe's in Bellingham, Washington. Our group of 35-40 were able to visit in the private room provided for such events. The room was very attractive and the tables were beautifully set in a seating arrangement conducive to conversation. We were well tended to by the wait staff. Our dinners were delicious and I appreciated the efforts by the establishment to accommodate special dietary requirements. This was a lovely setting for a very special occasion!

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

Took my wife for her birthday and had a great dinner. The wait staff was fast, attentive and courteous. Ordered to calamari to start with, not breaded but sautéed - tender and tasty. Had the steak special that was cooked to perfection. Would definitely return to try more items. Could become my favorite Italian eatery!

“Little Italy”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Bustling little taste of Italy on the waterfront. Local ingredients integrated into a classic Italian bistro.

“Passable, but overpriced”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

Preparation and flavors generally okay but the high prices are out of line for the quality of the food which is only slightly above average. That is, the ingredients aren't as good as they could be. For instance, the menu promised a caprese salad made with "seasonal tomatoes". In late August, that should be something other than flavorless supermarket Roma's probably from Mexico, but it wasn't. Wine prices are also high--the Italian whites were all about 3x retail. But it's there--loud and fun and noisy, with a great view of the harbor, and that's a good thing.

“Fine Italian dining”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

My wife and I were in Bellingham for a few days just to get away and relax from everything. Giuseppe's was recommended to us by Betty Cribbs(Viewmont Manor B and B). It was chilly the night we were there so we choose to eat inside. Our waiter was very good. My wife who has a wheat allergy ordered a gluten free pasta dish while I ordered the Lasagna. My wife's dish was excellent but mine on the other hand was only OK. For me it was too dry and not enough sauce. I've had this same dish at other Italian restaurants and they all for the most part end up being too dry. In the end I should have stuck with what I normally get when we go to a upscale Italian restaurant and that is Lamb Rack. The flourless chocolate cake we had for dessert was very good. Overall, we still would highly recommend Giuseppe's.
