I visit Birmingham often for business and was looking for a nice Italian restaurant. Giuseppe's was a great choice. I live in Atlanta, but am from NY and really know authentic Italian food. This was a wonderful experience regarding food quality/taste, price, atmosphere and service. Definitely will be back!!!🍝🍝🍝

Traditional Italian dining tucked between a working automotive garage on one end & "conviently" a Tavern on the other. If you crave pasta favorites such as spaghetti with meatballs, marinara or homemade Italian sausage you'll have to return several times to also try the manicotti, ziti & lasagna. But that's not all, they make specialty pizzas and calzones that when... More

My husband said best calzone he has ever had. Friend got cheese bread as appetizer and devoured it. Two of us had spaghetti with meat sauce which was... More

A great casual restaurant in Birmingham. Service is always good and food is consistently good and fresh. Have tried most everything on the menu. Can not go wrong with any of their dishes.

This may be the best calzone in town. The meat calzone is excellent and it is huge! If you haven't tried it, you need to.

My first visit to this hidden gem was 3 years ago for a birthday celebration. All in our party ordered different items so we could share and compare. Next to the shrimp Alfredo (perfect al dente noodles, succulent shrimp, lovely complementary spicing), my favorite was- and continues to be- the pizza. Wait! There's a reason Giuseppe's has become my go-to... More

Giuseppe's is a favorite restaurant for friends who asked us to join them for dinner on a Friday night. This is a small place and they take reservations; filled up quickly. I enjoyed the Manicotti - pasta stuffed with ricotta cheese and herbs, baked and topped with marinara sauce and parmesan cheese. My husband ordered the Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo -... More

I have not been a Birmingham resident in over 40 years. I am enjoying finding new(for me) restaurants in Birmingham. This is an intimate setting , with the opportunity to eat outside on a pleasant evening. This was a group of new friends that have visited Giuseppe's before this past evening. Several different items were ordered, and all were wonderful.... More

Family of four for dinner. Fairly small dining area, pleasant and family friendly. Service was very good. We all got different pasta dishes with salads. Salads were fresh and crisp with good dressings- the waitress said all house made. Everyone reported their pasta dishes were excellent. They all looked it. I had shrimp with pesto over linguine. It was delicious.... More
