Guiseppe's Restaurant Review

: Guiseppe's food has roots deep in Italy. The menu at this tiny Italian spot includes minestrone soup, thick with a mix of vegetables; pair it with a couple pieces of the house bread to make a meal. Pasta dishes range from the stuffed cannelloni in a Parmesan cream sauce to the meatballs ricotta, farfalle with the house meatballs in a tomato sauce, topped with a ricotta cheese mixture and baked until its golden brown. We never pass up a chance to enjoy the braciole: tender strips of beef rolled over a “robust” filling and then slowly cooked in a tomato sauce that’s rich with bell peppers and onions, served with fettuccine. For a lighter option, consider the chicken Giovanni with lemon white wine sauce. Seafood soup is also available. Wines are Italian and reasonably priced. Finish the evening with the delicately sweet dolce de Patricia, a tribute to the original owner’s sister.
