A Bexley Gem! My wife and I were at Giuseppe's Retrovo last night for happy hour. First of all, every member of the wait staff looked like they'd just stepped out of an Abercrombie & Fitch ad. We hadn't dined in this restaurant since its expansion several years ago, and we were pleasantly surprised by the sophisticated ambience. The crowd encompassed all age groups: young singles, people in their sixties and families with young children. We sat at the bar (which is the only option tif you want the terrific happy hour prices) and ordered excellent glasses of red wines, flatbread proscuitto pizza and caprese salad. The mozzarella in the pizza and caprese salad was exceptional, and the olive oil in the salad was also high quality. The fresh basil added a nice note. This time, we'll be back soon.

They come off as a high-end Italian restaurant, but unfortunately falls way short. We went in this passed Saturday for lunch, were greeted and seate…
When we first walked in everybody stared at us, and I wanted to hightail it out of there....but I'm glad I didn't. I think they just have a huge crowd of regulars, and there was an element of shock and the inevitable sizing us up that occurred when two newcomers waltzed in unannounced. I'm happy to be able to say that, once they got over the initial shock, the staff was exceptionally welcoming and friendly. Food was also pretty awesome and just what the doctor ordered. Also, consider getting a breakfast panini to go if you''re ever in the area and are over the whole fast food breakfast situation. The bacon, egg and cheese panini that my fiancee brought home for me was more than enough reason to crawl out of bed on a cold, winter morning.....confession, I ultimately ate it in bed and loved every minute of it!
Delicious! This traditional Italian restaurant is a gem! Be sure to get their veal parmesan with angel hair pasta. The flavors pop and presentation is excellent. I usually have pretty good self control, but I was full before my lunch plate was empty. I couldn't stop eating! It was that good! Service at this white tablecloth restaurant was excellent, the restaurant is very clean, it's not noisy, and there is an outdoor seating area. Michael Armstrong Bexley, Ohio
