A friend took me here yesterday for lunch. We both got sandwiches, and they were great. They have many flavors of gelato, and their dessert case, and cookie cases are to drool over. Unfortunately the sandwiches filled us up, but next time I'm starting with dessert first!

We went specifically to try the gelato... It's good, but no better than Talenti that you can buy at Publix. And a pint at Publix cost the same as one smallish scoop at Gelato Joe's... The neat thing is that it is like a throwback Italian 'deli' with the prepared pastas, salads, cakes and cookies all in the front cases!

Stop by for a drink outside patio - very good, but stopped by numerous times later and place was always closed. Wanted to try deli sandwiches but gave up after last try on Saturday, April 4 around 2pm. Ended up going elsewhere. Maybe they were closed for Easter, but no signs indicating that.

The amenities there were like in the 50's. The waitress kept skipping over me. She brought me the wrong sandwich 2 times. The when I asked to speak to a manager she make a snide commit about Yankees, Well I was born in Foley and raised here. I have never been so embarrassed in my life. She said out loud... More

Gelato Joe's is a wonderful place to eat lunch or a light supper. Their specialty is panini but wraps, cold sandwiches, and pasta are also available. Order at the counter and your meal is delivered to your table. Everything is freshly prepared and delicious. Don't forget to save room for some gelato. 24 varieties are available each day. Over 100... More

Have been going to Joe's for a number of years. Have never had a bad meal here. Joe cares. Food is excellent! It is not a showy, fine dining experience but nice and clean. The focus is on the food. The Food Channel is always on the TV. Fantastic Panini sandwiches, great salads, soups, pastas, and of course gelato. Huge... More
