Giuseppe Mauro was born in a small town at the foot of Mt. Etna on the island of Sicily. He specialized in the hospitality industry at a young age and developed a love of food, wine, and language. Working in the lavish dining rooms of the Intercontinental Hotels, Giuseppe spent time in Germany, France, England, and the Caribbean. It was always his dream to own and operate his own restaurant, and in 1995, he and his family opened Trattoria Giuseppe on Whidbey Island, WA. After many years of success, Giuseppe decided to relocate to Bellingham, and Giuseppe’s opened its doors on Commercial Avenue in 2002.


Unfortunately, the space at Commercial closed before Christmas in 2004 due to a tragic fire. Despite this misfortune, Giuseppe set his sights on the former Elks Club Historic Building on Cornwall Avenue. Built in 1912, he renovated for many months and reopened the restaurant in 2005. He enjoyed five happy years there with the support of his dedicated staff, loyal customers, and the local community.


Although he enjoyed being in the heart of downtown Bellingham, Giuseppe had always dreamed of owning a waterfront restaurant. During the summer of 2009, Giuseppe was presented with the opportunity to open a brand new space at 21 Bellwether Way on scenic Squalicum Harbor.


Giuseppe thanks all of you for your continued support of his restaurants.
