A fine Italian dining experience. Not many restaurants can do lamb justice: cook it to perfect tenderness without charring. Giuseppes did it justice and its presentation was equally impressive. Most nights it is standing room only because the food is that good. For that special occassion, make sure you have a reservation. The wine list appeals to all budgets and you will leave satisfied with a high quality dining experience. Great service, great food, great wine, intimate setting. A place one can easily take out of town friends to show that we are not so isolated and localized. Go ahead, brag about it, yes, Giuseppes gives you the right to brag that fine dining -can- be found in SLO county.

I love the food here! It is by far the best Italian in slo. It is right off the freeway, which is convenient and close to the pier for a stroll after dinner. Romantic sunsets are great! The prices are expensive, but worth it! I spent Valentines day here and it was romantic and nice.

This is, in my opinion, the best Italian restaurant in SLO County. The food is excellent. It's so good, my husband took me there on Valentine's Day to propose. Even after a 2 hour wait because it was Valentine's Day, it was worth it. We go back every year for our anniversary. Beware, they don't take reservations!

This place is great, great location, great service, great ambiance, great food!! The staff is super proffessional and very prompt. The food is always good, i eat there quite often and have yet to find something that i dislike. The only downfall is that they can get super busy, and they do not take reservations, so go early to avoid crowds.

Pros: Deliscious Italian Cuisine

Cons: They do not take reservations, and they get very busy. Waits can be up to an hour.

For such a small town, one wouldn't necessarily expect such big city quality in a restaurant. But Giuseppes is exactly that. High quality. The food is excellent, with a wide array of choices and wonderful wines. You won't be dissappointed. The service is also excellent.

The prices might be a bit high for the area, but coming from the Pasadena area, I thought everything was reasonable. My friend and I split the anitpasto platter which was good but nothing extraordinary. However, both of our pasta dishes were fantastic. I had one of the specials-- freshly made pasta with lamb in a red wine tomato sauce-- and my friend had shrimp scampi with rigatoni in an amazing sauce (I forget the name). Service was friendly and attentive.

This is the place to go for fine dining Italian style in the Five Cities area. Guiseppe's has a varied menu of great Italian cuisine. The atmosphere is warm and relaxing. This is a nice restaurant, so the prices are a bit higher, but still very reasonable for the quality. Service is excellent. Guiseppe's has perhaps the most extensive wine list in the area as well, featuring local and international favorites.

PROS: Fine dining at its best, great gourmet Italian, excellent service
CONS: None

Everytime we drive through or stay in Pismo this is a must eat place for us. A local review doesn't get it. But we do. Call it what you will, the food to us reminds us of being back in Italy. And we spent 3 weeks there. Wine list is high, we bring our own, but the food. great. Hot tip is to go when they first open 4 or 5.

Well worth the wait when there is one! I think the service is very good. The waiters are very knowledgeable in the food and wines they serve and they are always very pleasant! The wine Manager does an excellent job. Try one of their wine maker dinners some time, a very enjoyable event! Haven't had a bad meal yet, it's a great place to share with friends!

Ok, I'm a local so I don't understand the big hype over this place. It's more like nouvo Italian, so if you are looking for traditional Italian food you won't find it here. Prices are high and service is very slow. Everyone seems to rave about this place but I don't get it.
