Handpicked ingredients spring from treasured family recipes inside Giuseppe’s La Cantina. After settling into homey confines, surrounded by paintings and dark woods, diners tuck into dinner dishes such as chicken vesuvio ($16.25) and linguine di pesce ($22.50), teeming with shrimp, calamari, and mussels. The ground-beef-stuffed lasagna ($16.25), one of Giuseppe’s house specialties, also pairs well with one of the bar’s cocktails, beers, or glasses of wine.
Giuseppe’s La Cantina
Though Giuseppe, the cofounder and namesake of Giuseppe’s La Cantina, passed on in 2005, his children still helm the restaurant in his honor. As a result, it’s no coincidence that the restaurant pulsates with a homey ambiance. The 50-year-old eatery has been in the Brunetti family since 1963, boasting menus and recipes passed down from family members in their native Italy. An appetizer of Italian antipasto leads diners to family specialties, such as eggplant giovanna topped with mozzarella and lasagna layered with ricotta and ground beef. Each day the Brunettis’ offerings continue to tempt locals with the family’s rich sauces, succulent meats, and seafood so proud to be on the menu it enters the oven willingly.
