My wife and I had a very nice dinner at Giuseppe's Ritrovo on Valentine's Day. Although I called for a reservation 10 days in advance, we ended up with a 6:00 PM reservation, an indication of their popularity. I had the veal piccata and my wife ordered the eggplant parmesan, both traditional dishes and exceedingly well done. My wife was... More

We have visited GR a couple of times now. Great location and very good atmosphere. Very impressed by the skills of their professional bartender and there cocktails are top notch. The pastas are delicious and reasonably priced. They have one of the best happy hours in town. Will be back!

Never, ever disappointed. Have tried many pasta dishes and they are always tops. The Clam Linguini has so many clams, it is to die for. Pizza is outstanding.

Went on a weeknight and fortunately had reservations. It appeared that it was a full house. Had a lightly breaded chicken dish with a light salad. Found it quite good and the portion was more than sufficient. Another in my party had the soup which was outstanding. Service was good and attentive. Cons: Was a bit on the pricey side,... More

I think they changed the bread since I ate there last. My daughter's pizza was outstanding. It had shrimp and mushrooms...so good! I ordered penne with chicken and spinach. The chicken was just ok. I looked at it closely, because it tasted like the chicken was bought already cooked and sliced. I will order something else next time. Love the... More

Stopped in for lunch after a visit to Franklin Park Conservatory. Very laid back, casual, no one (including staff) was in much of a hurry, I get the sense it is as much a hangout as a place to dine. Soups were good, salads also (beet salad in particular).

I ordered the veal piccata very small piece of meat small portion of pasta for over 20. Partner ordered spaghetti and meat balls way to salty. We will not... More

Go Bexley for sharing an authentic Italian cuisine in this small city -- I love eating at this restaurant as the food reminds me of the best food that I ate during my two years of living in Italy!

I've been here several times ... and have enjoyed top service and food every time. (There's a reason the Rolling Stones were sent here when they were in town last year!) One heads up: it's always busy!

Visiting Capital University across the street. A resident of Bexley highly recommended Giuseppe's and we're glad she did. All four of our entrees were excellently prepared. The quality of their veal was very good and the pasta was a nice aldente. The service was also excellent. The restaurant was full (on a Monday night!) and our server still did an... More
