Average service and average food. Table was dirty when we sat down. They had just opened for dinner. Place should have been customer ready. Server non engaging.

Stopped in with several work colleagues for dinner. Service was friendly, Susan did a terrific job suggesting dinner choices and was obviously very conversant with the menu. An indication of the high level of customer service was when someone asked about pasta with pesto sauce. While it's not on the current menu, she assured us the kitchen could put together... More

A friend recommended this restaurant to me; I've been coming to Williamsburg from Richmond for more than 20 years and had never seen it or heard of it. Yet here is this amazing family owned and operated gem with the best food, best service, best attitudes, best atmosphere ever. We knew before our appetizer arrived that it was all going... More

I met a friend at Giuseppe's today for lunch. Lobster bisque was the special soup and it was excellent. I chose the meatball sandwiches​ with the cup of soup and pasta salad added on for $2. An excellent deal! The soup tasted great and the meatball sandwich was great yet different. It is made on toasted sourdough bread. I wasn't... More

My mom, sister and I enjoyed a wonderful meal from start to finish there last night to celebrate my birthday! The owner and his son are incredibly hospitable and obviously care very much about customer satisfaction! The wine was amazing, the fried artichoke appetizer was delicious and we all had amazing entrees! (I would highly recommend the butternut squash risotto!)... More

In Williamsburg for a week. Recommended to try Giuseppe's by hotel. So impressed we went twice ! Really nice atmosphere with friendly staff and owner in attendance. Food really good - my wife loved the eggplant parmigiana and had it both nights. My spaghetti and meatballs was also very good and meatballs obviously homemade. Second night I had lobster risotto...

We came in at just before 7 on a Saturday night, with no reservation. We were sat immediately at the bar and received EXCELLENT service! The food was amazingly good! The wine is also amazingly good! If I was a regular to Williamsburg, I would make it a point to eat here at least once a week. The owner checked... More

Over a road trip to see the sights of historic Virginia (3-6 to 3-10) my group ate at Giuseppe's twice. The first time I had a Caesar salad while sharing dishes of Chicken Parmesan, bruschetta, and cheese pizza. The second time I had a red snapper dinner special. Both times I drank a house Moscato wine. Both nights we had... More
