Default Why No Giuseppe’s?

Went for a motorcycle ride around the lake today. After meeting a friend in Wolfeboro we decided to have lunch at Canoe but they were closed. Next we decided on the Bob house, they too were closed. Finally after thinking a bit I decided to go to Giuseppe’s in Meredith as I had never been there.

What a hidden gem! Great attentive service by ambitious young adults, great food and a real nice outdoor seating area. The place was pretty full and I can certainly see why.

So my question is why has this place never been mentioned here on the forum?? Is it because it’s good and we only discuss bad food and service places??

Two big thumbs up for Giuseppe’s!

Dan

I know this doesn't really answer your question but I can't believe you have never been there. It's great.... I sort of gave up on restaurant threads because they always turn into a debate.

Went there couple of weeks ago. Service left us wanting. After receiving our food we never saw the server again until we paid the bill. Space cramped and people trying to get around each other in the narrow walk ways. Noisy.
Expensive for menu items which were not that great.
Probably will give them another try sometime.

I know I can’t believe I haven’t been there either. We were actually supposed to go a litte while back to see one their guitar players play but my wife got sick and we had to cancel.

Regarding restaurant threads, I don’t review restaurants unless I have something good to say, just my way...

I have a place in Meredith and Giuseppe's is not what I would call quality Italian food. It's a great place to drink and has a great lively atmosphere but the food is just ok, as far as Italian restaurants go. We usually go there for drinks and entertainment after we've had a good meal elsewhere.

We love Giuseppe's, and go multiple times a season. Try the spinach and feta rolls!

Us too. It has been part of our vacation dining for over 20 years. It's not gourmet Italian but it is good, consistent and reasonably priced. The location and atmosphere are part of why we go there. The live entertainment is great (we still miss Giovanni) and we've seen some real surprising talent on open mike night. Some of our group will always go early to hit the shops and walk around Meredith. It's always a nice night out that we all look forward to. To each his own.

Meredith is a Common Man town and Giuseppe’s offers a welcome option especially when going to town by boat. The town is fortunate to be home to several Common Man restaurants but the only one we like is Frankie’s.

Default Giussepe's

Never had a bad experience, food is good, consistent, is it authentic Italian? No, but many are not. I like their pizza, its nice to sit outside also.

Default Giuseppe’s

What a lot of boaters may not know is they have take out as well. Meaning I have called in an order from the boat and given them my hull number . They meet me at the Meredith dock, bow up to the dock hand them our money, receive our food and then go float and have dinner on the water . It works great during the week and on Sunday evenings

You need to tell us about your hidden fishing hole and that quiet cove, then we'll let you know more of our hidden gems.
We like the pizza and the outdoor seating. Dockside delivery is a great thing to know about.
