Went here for my daughter's birthday on a Monday. Was surprised how empty it was. Food was very good. Service was great until it came to the bill. My husband paid with a credit card. He signed it and had it on the table under his arm. We sat there talking five minutes beyond signing it. The waiter came over... More

The waiter was telling us that they recently completed a menu change. The food was always good but it did seem to go up a notch when we last were there. The service can be spotty and it seems like there are never a lot of people there when we go. Nevertheless, it's worth giving it a shot.

We had made reservations for an anniversary dinner at another local establishment. We arrived to find out we had a nearly two hour wait for a table in spite of the reservation. Needless to say, we did not wait. I am certainly glad we opted to head here instead. We had an outstanding meal that was accompanied by great service... More

I've always enjoyed the food here, but the service is consistently slow. Sometimes it's ridiculously slow for a smaller place, even when it's not busy. Worth it if you have the time for a leisurely meal.

Food is still good; we had create your own pasta. I had the meat sauce; my companion had marina and sausage. Their sauce is one of the best. Minestrone soup was also good. That ends the good stuff. Being a Thursday night, the place was not at all crowded. We waited quite a while to be waited on; the coffee... More

Great little Italian restaurant tucked away almost out of site. Don't let the location fool you though! Great portion sizes and friendly staff have had me coming back for years!

My wife and I went here on Valentine's day and as soon as we began our meal she said she wanted to eat here for our anniversary too, so today that's what we did. Good ingredients, well prepared, and good service.

I hadn't been in this venue for many many years. On a whim (after tedious wedding dress shopping) the now husband & I stopped in for a needed & earned nip & nosh. It was perfect! The bartender was SUPER friendly & helped us with choosing our nosh. We settled on one of their flatbread pizzas. SO delicious! Our drinks... More

We have been to Joe's about a half-dozen times now over the past months and gotten carry-out also. I think I can honestly say that the pasta dishes are some of the best I've had in a long time, fresh and full of delicious flavor. Our friends really enjoyed their lasagna also. The atmosphere is very cozy, warm and comfortable.... More
