Satisfaction Guaranteed

Back in the spring of 2010, a seasoned resteraunt professional  Joe Scordato, yes THAT Scordato, and a wide eyed exuherant new comer, Joshua Velderrain decided to open Guiseppes. Joe Scordato was Joshua boxing coach back in the day and Joshua worked at a couple of Joe's resturants. Joe taught Joshua how to cook.  Located on Oracle, Guiseppe's offers Scordato's tasty italian food from old family recipes. My mother and I went there on a Saturday evening. The ambiance was warm and inviting. on the walls were art by local artists, which gave the place some splashes of color. The patio had a great view of the desert. As the small room inside the resteraunt filled up the wait staff added more seating outside. We arrived just before the dinner rush and the place was peppered with only a few customers. The service was fantastic. Our waiter Kevin, was great! All the waitstaff are encouraged to build a relationship with their customers. "Customer service is key, food is priorty", according to Joshua. For our appetizer my mother and I ordered the Stuffed Mushrooms ($5.25). It had a very hearty taste to it. The texture of it wasn't rubbery but just right. My Mother's entree was the Penne Sausage ($9.95). Her entree was composed of penne pasta and Guiseppe's special spicy homemade sausage tossed with tomato sauce and baked with mozzarella cheese. The penne wasn't hard or chewy. The tomato sauce and sausage was a very flavorful combination. My entree, the Pork Carbanara ($16.95) was in a creamy parmesan wine sauce and The Pork was tender with sauteed peas, onion, bacon (the gold of the pig), cherry tomatoes, and garlic served over fettucine pasta. The porked grilled to perfection. The bacon was a nice touch. That parmesan cream sauce really tied the meal together. Both our meals were fairly portioned to match the prices. For dessert we had the Spumoni ($4.50) which was the perfect way to end this wonderful Italian meal. So swing by Guiseppe's and get some Italian cuisine but make reservations first.
