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

Okay, all of you food snobs who won't go anywhere but Uricchio's or Mama Tosca's can stop reading right here. This is the best traditional mom and pop Italian eatery in Bakersfield. Located as usual in an unfashionable part of town, one will be hard pressed to find better Italian food. The marinara sauce is very fresh, garlicky and piquant.... More

Calzone will not disappoint ... fresh ingredients and greats sauce make this a hearty meal. Get fresh mushrooms instead of canned.

It's a neat local place and the service was very good. I had spaghetti and meatballs with bolognese sauce (special request - normally served with plain marinara). There was nothing to rave about the food - it was okay. My favorite spaghetti and meatballs is at Macaroni Grill.
