Although the menu is limited, the dishes are satisfying. We had the quiche, and two different eggs benedict dishes (one with filet medallions, the other with bacon). The poached eggs were a little overdone for my taste (I like the yolks to be runny). The hollandaise was not overwhelming and instead enhanced the dish. Each dish came with fresh fruit.... More

The food is great. The drinks are strong. The staff is friendly and helpful. However it is noisy, not vibrant, Italian restaurant noisy, but geriatrics complaining about their health and politics fears noisy.

A causal atmosphere with upscale dining. Bar tender is the best in Lexington. A great place to be with friends and drink a bottle of wine.

Some family and I met in Lexington for shopping and dinner. We were in the mood for Italian so I asked a Lexington resident where was best. Their favorite was Giuseppe's. We made an early reservation and arrived around 5:30. We were seated immediately and greeted my our server Devan. He took excellent care of us, gave excellent recommendations, and... More

Giuseppe's has a real italian fine dining experience. The food is excellent and atmosphere is wonderful. It is not a very bright (lit) restaurant, giving it a personal feel to each table. There is a wide selection of wonderful food. I suggest the Sea Bass. I have had it many times and it is wonderful. Great place for a date... More

A go to Italian eatery that offers fantastic food in a great setting. Kind of a hidden gem. We had wine, appetizers, and great conversation before the exquisite meal and finished with great cocktails. We stayed for three hours socializing and I never felt pressured to hurry and leave. Thanks to the staff and managementfor creating that environment.

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
