Our daughter and her family recently moved to Lexington, Kentucky and had heard from several people that they must try Giuseppe's Ristorante Italiano. Since we were going to be in town visiting for our 46th anniversary right before Thanksgiving, we made a reservation for the...More

Service was fine, drinks were good. Wife’s Carbonara Italiano was so overly salted that she couldn’t eat it. They were nice enough to “Comp” it. My Eggplant Parm tasted like a TV dinner; but we didn’t complain because it was insignificant compared to wife’s dish....More

My wife and I went to Giuseppe's for an anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. It has a social club feel with easy jazz music most nights. I like the fact that the menu is different from all the other Italian restaurants. I want to...More

Found this on open table, when you first pull into the street it didn't seem so nice and appeared there was no parking, don't let that fool you! There is plenty of parking. Our service was fantastic and perfectly paced. The food was excellent from...More

I am not sure about the question about lunch hours, But attire was not an issue. We wore jeans and were welcomed. I think that attire is not an issue.
