This small family-run restaurant is a jewel in Bexley, OH. The food and service are superb and the ambiance is similar to what you'd find in a NYC or Chicago neighborhood. It's pricey so we go for special occasions but we've never been disappointed.

This restaurant has much going for it from the cosmopolitan ambiance to an efficient staff. I had the cheese ravioli which was well prepared. My partner ordered the veal Marsala -- A generous and tender cutlet but was overloaded with sauce. A word to the waiter when you order might be wise. We ordered a salad to split and they obliged with separate plates for each.
Our waiter was very attentive and the dishes were served quickly and at good temperature.
I would suggest a reservation as the restaurant was quite busy even on a Tuesday evening. The happy hour bar prices are a great deal if you can land a stool.
Fare is typical Italian with an upscale twist.

Some restaurants are loud and noisy, and the annoyance spoils the meal. Giuseppe's can get loud because the crowd is having a good time, but it never takes away from the delicious dining experience. The new adjoining dining room improves the seating.

Our favorite Italian restaurant. All dishes are hand-made and the portions are just right. Good choice of wines and a cozy bar for before or after dinner drinks. You cannot go wrong!!

We were back in Columbus and made sure we ate here during our visit. Since we haven't lived in Columbus for 9 years I wondered if the food would be as good as it used to be. It certainly was! Austin Tx, where we are now sure has some great restaurants, but I'd love to be able to eat at Giuseppe's regularly. It's easy to see why they have such a loyal following in Bexley and surrounding areas! Pasta cooked to order and sauces the owner grew making in Italy are excellent. We had several chicken dishes, veal and halibut and all were first rate. After a huge antipasto and entrees we weren't sure we could handle dessert, but all disappeared quickly and we were glad we tried them.
