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

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,
