Decided to give this place a try

I found this place by looking around on google for pizza . I'm 22 wks pregnant and I have been craving a pizza from King Leo's but they closed the place down so I haven't found a place close to that! I came across Joseph's and decided to give it a try after reading the reviews . Well came home... read more

Got a pizza for take away. The first two pieces tasted good. The third had a little bonus in it just for me. A big hair. Nasty I won't be going back to Hairy's.

Joseph's Italian was recommended to us by a co-worker so My wife and I tried it for lunch. When we arrived at around noon, the place was already pretty full of the lunch crowd. The inside looks just as bad as the outside. It looks like it hasn't seen a renovation for decades.The greeter asked if we would mind sitting... More

Joseph's has always been one of my favorites in Bakersfield. Great steaks but the Calzone is my favorite! I'd recommend this place to anyone!

We had to travel to Bakersfield several times to attend to some family affairs. Every time we were there, we at at least one meal at Joseph's. The food was always pleasing and the service was very good. And I will say, one time when my wife's dish was not up to snuff, they made it right without giving us... More

I went to Josephs on the recommendation of a family member. She had been impressed with the service and the food. My impression was slightly different. Great Entrees!! I had the pork chops. My wife had the Manicotti. Both were excellent. The bread was excellent. It was fresh and served warm. One detail is that the butter was soft. I... More

Food not fresh. Everything is canned, and jarred. I had the pasta trio and my wife had the chicken alfredo. You can tell that the sauce is some sort of store bought jar for both the red pasta sauce and alfredo. Also, the chicken used in my wife s plate was canned chicken, with an almost tuna like consistency. The... More
