This is a neighborhood place in a strip mall, and serves a good variety of excellent Italian food. The calamari appetizer was a stand-out -- neither breaded nor fried, but served in a delicious tomato-based broth. Wine was inexpensive, very good quality, and generous pours. We went early (5:30) to beat the rush that we were told to expect and,... More

Came with two girlfriends at 5:30 on a Monday and it was filled inside ( it's a small space) so we sat outside. The menu reminded me of times in Italy. Started with some Pinot Grigio which was easy drinking. Shared the Giuseppe Salad...its huge and definitely sharable. The calamari in tomato sauce is delectable, so much, that I ordered... More

Don't confuse this place with the Giuseppe's in Scottsdale! Giuseppe's on Indian School Rd. in Phoneix is where you want to go! Richard, the owner, is a gem and really cares about his customers. Plus, he is an interesting guy! Our server was awesome! The food was the best meal I've had out to eat in years, I'm not kidding.... More

We thought if Guy Ferrelli and Triple D would cover this restaurant, it must be good, and it was! We love little out of the way places that are gems and Giuseppe's was no exception...it was great! I had the Veal Osso Buco and my wife had Signature Bolognese Ragu. Huge portions that were delicious. Topped it off with a... More

Made reservations for a Valentine's night out and was not disappointed a bit. I've known not only this restaurant for a long while now but I've known the owner, Richard, who greets everyone with a smile and a hug. Tonight's special was Risotto with Gorgonzola and pear sauce, paired masterfully with a Napa Valley Pinot Grigio. Did I say "Homerun"... More

If you want great Italian Food, you have to try this hidden gem in Phoenix! They were on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives a few years back. All the food is high quality and delicious! You have to try the Bolognese...TO DIE FOR!!!

Giuseppe's on 28th is a real treasure. The owner is also the maitre'd and creative force in the restaurant. This is old-world Italian at its finest. Custom dishes with those special extra touches. And the warmth of a host who is there to insure your enjoyment. The pasta dishes are a big hit and the wines are great values.

Small Italian restaurant that I come to every time I'm in Phoenix. I repeat every time. Only 7 inside tables but the service and food is excellent. Found this off of food network's diners and dives. Not impressive from the outside(inside a strip mall) but you will love it!!!!

As long-time Phoenicians, we hear the buzz about new restaurants, but overlook neighborhood spots (outside our own patch) that open with less fanfare. It so we came to Giuseppe's on 28th. A dozen tables and a few outside in front. A chalkboard with daily specials. A homey vibe. And excellent food. The owner talked us into an excellent bottle of... More

We found Giuseppe's after it was reviewed on Check Please Arizona! Two kids were allowed to split an entree without being charged. The pasta tasted amazing and if you love seafood gave their special ink squid pasta. Amazing. We shared three desserts and an appetizer. The check was completely resonable. Please do not allow the lack of formality Or location... More
