This is worth a trip to Arlington Heights and dine on one of Pasquale's great dishes. J & G's has been around a long time, having moved from Glenview to Arlington Hts a number of years ago. It is a small restaurant, located in a small strip center just north of Central Road, it is truly one of the great... More

Neighborhood gem in off beat location. The menu is a very reasonable representation of great Italian food. The owner/ chef is always on hand coming out to greet customers before returning to the kitchen to prepare their meal. Prices are more than fair, a great value for your dollar. all veal, fish and chicken dishes are excellent and his pasta... More

The restaurant is like in a small shopping center strip which does not seem like much. Once you go in, it is very homey and friendly. And the food and the service are excellent. The cook and owner greets you at times and it is certainly a place frequented by locals. Portions are hefty and the taste is great. Prices... More

Don't let the location in a strip mall fool you. This place is fantastic. We were there Saturday night and it was packed. I found out it is a family run business. The wife greets you at the door and makes you feel like family, while her husband is doing his magic in the kitchen. I had the lobster ravioli... More

You have to be kidding me. Dinner starts with a basket of ok bread, served with flavorless oil. Then comes a salad--creamy garlic tastes like nothing--on iceberg lettuce with greenish, hard, flavorless tomato chunks. A dish of pasta with plain, no meat sauce (cheapest thing on menu)is $15. I had the eggplant parm. It was like two slabs of grease.... More

An evening with friends brought us to Joe & Guiseppe's where we dined on good homemade Italian fare. This is not a large restaurant, table space is limited so do call to make reservations in advance. The atmosphere has a casual family feel. The linguine with mussels is not to be missed as well as the tilapia. The chicken marsala... More

Such a nice warm homey feel for a restaurant. The chef often comes out and if you go in at lunch time and want something special he'll make it for you. The minestrone soup is awesome. They offer a tremendous pork shank, but call in advance to make sure they have it and have them save one for you. Reservations... More

My neighbor recommended this restaurant to me and I gave it a try. I have now become a regular at this restaurant. The food is excellent, priced right and the service is friendly. Don't let the strip mall appearance scare you away. I would recommend this place for family or couples.

I review this restaurant a few years ago and gave it 5 stars. I ordered lobster ravioli. The ravioli was flat and had no lobster in it and very little cheesy in it. The sauce was tasteless as was the ravioli. My husband ordered fish that to was tasteless and very small portion. The bread and olive oil was good.... More

When the food is good here, it's good. When it's bad, it's bad. The service is consistently unfriendly, and meals are over priced. I've been here several times, and even being just around the corner from home, I just can't see giving this place any more chances.
