I had veal parmigianna yesterday for lunch at Giuseppe's, one of the few decent restaurants in the east Portland/Gresham area. It was great and it is one of my favorite dishes at Giuseppe's, always fresh, always cheesy, always consistent, great tasting veal. I have been eating at Giuseppe's since it opened (I think back in 86). I am American born and of Italian decent, having the privilege of visiting Italy only once. The reason I mention this is because I get a kick out of reading some of the reviews on this page challenging the Italian authenticity of some of Giuseppe's dishes. I grew up learning that there are at least 13 different dialects spoken throughout Italy’s multitude of provinces/regions from Calabrese to Milanese, each varying in culture and menu. I highly recommend Giuseppe's for good food and a fun time. Along with the veal I especially enjoy the lasagna, spaghetti carbonara and chicken fettuccini Giuseppe's.
Pros: large portions, good selection, GREAT PIZZA
Cons: can get very busy on weekends (call ahead)
