Restaurants, San Luis Obispo

Giuseppe’s Cucina Rustica  

On the recommendation of several people, we decided to try Giuseppe’s Cucina Rustica located steps from the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa in downtown SLO.

The restaurant is located in the historic Sinsheimer Bros. building built in the 1880’s and the establishment oozes with charm and character. As you enter, you are greeted by the host behind a small Italian roadster which has been converted into reception desk, the exposed brick walls give the interior a cool vibe, along with vintage black and white images paying respect to the building’s historic past, and the original preserved vault – now turned into a tiny private seating area – takes the charm to the next level.

We arrived just after 3 pm when they stop seating at the restaurant tables in preparation for the dinner transition but they were serving in the bar area so we sat at a high-top table next to the fireplace and the vault. For warmer days, there is also a quaint bistro-style outside area.

 

They offer a good menu and nice libations and since they weren’t serving their dinner menu while we were there, we ordered several started items and shared them and we found them all delicious and satisfying.

The entire visit was a pleasant experience, the servers were friendly and we would highly recommend a visit here.
