They have a Mediterranean pasta that is so delicious, it has become my favorite. The artichokes and olives are so flavorful and light on this pasta. Service is great! Joe's Pasta House is the best restaurant in Rio Rancho.

We live in Rio Rancho and go here several times a year. Good, fresh, homemade pastas and bread. Always busy. Great service. My favorite is the Southwestern Chicken Fettuccine (Alfredo sauce with green chile)! Portions are large and I frequently take some home for the next day. Never a bad experience here. Will continue to support this great, local business.

We celebrated my husband's birthday with some friends at Joe's a couple of weeks ago. The food and service never disappoints. Joe came over to our table and chatted with us for a few minutes. It is always a special meal when we eat at Joe's.
