I had a cup of their gelato and it was delicious. The new restaurant is beautiful and tastefully decorated. The staff was also very friendly.

This was my favorite place to eat, but after tonight, I may never go there again. They stuck the two of us in the back room; The back room is the "forgotten" area. The service was SUPER slow and we were surrounded by "kids and groups" also unhappy by the slow service. There is NO atmosphere in the back, just... More

The new location for Giuseppe’s in San Luis Obispo is 849 Monterey St., in the Sinsheimer Bros. building. This is a good move for fans of this well know restaurant. Let's face it the old location on Court was getting a little old. You'll feel the new vibe right when you walk in. Fresh and clean retro/mod look. A smaller... More

Celebrating our anniversary we wanted to somewhere nice. We walked in and it was such a great atmosphere and welcoming staff. We ordered the meatball sandwich and pepperoni pizza. Food came out in about 10 minutes, quick. Both plates were sooooo good. Server was on it most of the time(disappeared for about 10min when trying to get the check) but... More

Have visited several times over the years and have always enjoyed the place. Food is still wonderful but we were a bit disappointed by the new resultant. They didn't move far but new site just didn't have the same romantic quality to it. A bit louder and cramped in for what we were looking for. Missing a quality time for... More

A group of us went to Giuseppe's for lunch in a quiet, private room. Service was excellent and constant. Drinks, bread, respectable wait for food. I had a very good chicken salad. Others had pasta, calamari or chicken - everyone was pleased. Would highly recommend.

The food, the bread and the wine were all really great; particularly the ravioli. Recommend reservations, it can be crowded. It would get a 5, but the acoustics are awful. 1 loud table will echo everywhere; you can't get away from them to have your own conversation.

Came back for more after having a most delicious lunch. The menu had something for the most demanding gourmet to the regular hamburger person. We had lunch in beautiful weather sitting outside with white table linen. The restaurant is located on a street with walking only. Fun to watch locals, students and visiting parents, and some tourists. Food was delicious... More

I don't like to review restaurants until I have eaten at them at least three times, and I have been to Palazzo Giuseppe at least five times o re several years. The bar is always a cheerful, vibrant, cozy place and the martinis are killer. So are the potato chips that accompany the drinks. So comfy, in fact, that you... More

Welcome to Palazzo Giuseppe’s, downtown San Luis Obispo!

Our Italian regional specialties are indicative to the Pugliese region in Italy, particularly Bari, a seaport on the Adriatic Sea from which most of our recipes originate. We hope you will enjoy and appreciate our great loyalty to the distinctive dishes, all of which we prepare with genuine and natural ingredients and methods. Our bread is baked from scratch every day in a wood-burning oven imported from Italy. Each loaf is made by hand, allowed to rise four times and slow-cooked to achieve the truly rustic appearance and taste you would find in a Baresi seaside village.
DiFronzo is dedicated to producing & growing as many heirloom, organic vegetables, & fruits from his family farm as possible. Gelato, pizzas, & specialties including his estate grown Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir, & Syrah. All of this takes time but to us it is an art and a labor of love. We are truly committed to bringing you "cucina genuina."
