While flying to Connecticut, I met a guy that highly recommend Joey Garlics. About a week passed and few friends and myself were trying to decide where to have lunch when I remembered "Joey Garlics". Upon arrival, I was impressed with the service and cleanliness of this establishment. Our waitress was cheerful and very knowledgable about the large menu. Our... More

I usually get take out here. Orders are made ontime as promised. Sometimes the special changes requested are overlooked but quickly rectified. Food portions are quite big. Great value. Eggplant fries are very tasty.

Stopped in today for lunch with teenagers and was pleasantly surprised by this little gem. First be prepared when you enter the restaurant to be overwhelmed by the smell of the Italian dishes. Hopefully you won't have a wait because it will be agonizing! We ordered 2 large pizzas and a salad for 4 people and ended up leaving with... More

Really fun place for good Italian food and large portions good for sharing. The red sauce on the pasta dishes has great flavor, they should sell it as it tastes better than Rao's sauce which is from another good restaurant. The only downside is that it's simply not big enough, always crowded with a wait. The waitresses are a little... More

One the best Italian restaurants in the Hartford area. The food is prepared consistently to your liking. The service is very good. Get there early on the weekend as you may have a "wait". If your not inclined to eat-in they have a terrific take out area. Enjoy!

I am sad to write this review because the food at Joey Garlic's really is very good. On the day after Thanksgiving in the 4 o'clock hour, our group of 7 people stopped in to the bar area for some pizza and a beer. An annual festive get-together of friends. First the staff were unable to move 2 small bar... More

If you are hungry, Joey Garlic's is the place to go. Their large portions are beyond oversized! The food is great. It's always hot (if that's what you ordered) and the service is quick and friendly. The only drawback is the wait to get in. But the food is worth the wait. I have never been disappointed. Be sure to... More
