Bessie & Giuseppe is a casual little pizza and burger joint that utilizes freshly made pizza dough, homemade sauce, and cheese that’s been grated in house. Combined with fresh burger and pizza toppings, and a fun atmosphere that’s conducive to Happy Hour or football Sunday snacking, this eatery is becoming a popular destination for folks who need an easy place to eat and drink along Eastwood Road.

The menu is divvied up into appetizers, gourmet salads, Bessie Burgers, pizza and calzones, and an entirely separate page that’s dedicated to cold beers and drinks. Pizza fans will want to peruse the long list of specialty pizzas, like the Pesto Chicken, the Buffalo or BBQ chicken, or the PPG which is topped with pears, prosciutto & gorgonzola cheese. The burgers are just as varied and tempting, with “Build Your Own” options, and in-house specialties like the Cowboy Burger with BBQ sauce and onion rings, or the “Big Bessie” which boasts three patties – or more than a pound of hamburger – with American cheese. With an array of fun appetizers like cheese bread and chicken wings, and a bar that’s perfect for sports fans, Bessie & Giuseppe is a fun spot to dive into burgers and pizzas in a lively and almost pub-style atmosphere.
