Friendly, engaging, and informed staff. Options for Happy Hour, Early Dinner or Dinner with expanding menu and cost but with excellent value in the upgrades. Owner oversight is evident but not intrusive and rather a matter of quality control. Very tasty menus and extensive wine list.

The ambience is nice. A great date night restaurant. Their lunch menu was vast and intriguing. The fact that Giuseppe's is right on the bay makes it a comfortable and relaxing dining spot. They also have a nostalgic banquet room. I highly recommend Giuseppe's Italian Restaurant.

Spaghetti Bolognese is absolutely delicious as is the dinner salad and great appetizers. Love the location--right on the water at the harbor. Happy Hour is fabulous--the menu is very economical. Giuseppe enjoys greeting his guests at their table which makes for a full dining experience.

Visited on a Saturday with 7pm reservations. Restaurant was packed, but we were comfortably seated and able to enjoy conversation without competing with neighboring tables. Our waiter was Josh and he took incredible care of us. We had the house wine, which went well with the daily specials; a Dungeness crab-stuffed mahi mahi with broccolini on a risotto cake and...

Went out for a nice dinner and ordered the lobster ravioli... They used that lump shrimp meat in the dish, wtf. You know those tiny, nasty, little shrimp that are raised in filipino sewer ditches... There is an air of superiority that some customers enjoy but it just doesn't seem justified when they throw a plate of previously frozen Costco... More

I had Vitello Alla Marsalla (veal Chop) and my wife had Lobster Ravioli and a nice bottle of wine. The meal was outstanding,... More

The owner is highly active in his establishment. We normally go in around 5 PM and eat in the bar off of the bar menu. Their ribs are outstanding and I buy them nearly every time. It is a side dish but with a Caesar sale, it fills me up. The bar side has a $24 menu that has your... More

Location is so wonderful down by the water front. The food is amazing. Feels just like Grandma's in the kitchen cooking. Lots of choices & plenty of seating.

Truly a great Italian restaurant. The owner Giuseppe is often there greeting guests and assuring everything is just so. I love the seafood Zuppe Di Pesco (seafood chowder), wonderful starter or delicious lunch! The Spaghetti ala Bologanese is superb and enough for an encore the next day. Located on Bellingham's waterfront, if you eat a little too much it's a... More
