For Chinese New Years, my mother wanted to make sure we went out to celebrate, oddly enough she picks an Italian place. She has been to Guiseppe’s before and has enjoyed the food here. Instead of lugging the kids to a busy Chinese restaurant for New Year’s celebration, she decides on a quieter restaurant.
The restaurant is nice, it is upstairs from the market, deli, casual dining area. You are served some nice bread and olives to start. We ordered the kids a four cheese pizza, they didn’t mind it except they didn’t like a certain type of cheese on the pizza.
The service was friendly but the food coming out was dreadfully slow being we were one of the first groups to arrive and order there. We were able to keep the kids entertained down in the market place looking at things. I was able to peek into the kitchen to see what the hold up was, there was only one guy cooking back there.
I apologize in advance because I failed to write down the names of these dishes.
What’s In Front Of Me:
Bread and Olives: 4/5
Four Cheese Pizza: 4/5
Salmon Entree: 4/5
- Nicely cooked salmon which sat on top of asparagus and risotto
Pasta Entree: 3.5/5
- Good taste very peppery
