Jupiter, we hope you’re hungry for Italian, because Giuseppe’s Ristorante is back in business.
The popular Italian restaurant at Chasewood Plaza reopened Tuesday after closing this summer for a $200,000 renovation. More seating, an expanded bar area and upgraded kitchen are just a few of the new perks.
Things have been “busy, busy, busy” at Giuseppe’s this week, owner Constantine DeRosa told Jupiter Magazine, after pausing to pick up a phone call from another customer asking if the restaurant had reopened.
“They love it. Everybody loves the new look. It’s more open,” he said.
Now able to hold 165 guests as opposed to 88, the restaurant is certainly more spacious, but it’s still “accessible and laid-back,” DeRosa said.
“It’s just a much more comfortable, relaxed atmosphere,” he said.
As it heads into its 30th season of service, Giuseppe’s will soon be operating under a full liquor license so that it can serve more than beer and wine at its bar—a bar that has doubled its seating to accommodate about a dozen customers.
The restaurant now serves a new bar menu featuring about a dozen items—including black angus sliders, fried green beans, antipasto platters and Italian-style rice balls—that will be available all day, even after the kitchen closes.
DeRosa said Giuseppe’s has also expanded its lunch menu with a bit more variety, including panini offerings and different specials. On the other hand, the dinner menu has stayed the same, and no price changes were made.
The renovation also added new hardwood flooring, bathrooms, stainless steel kitchen appliances and even air conditioning upgrades.
