Sounds crazy:….but also good on a diet

This place’s reputation is “big portions of good Italian for not a lot of money”. I hear the pork cutlet could choke a gorilla. I was leery about having a business lunch here because I have to lose weight for a wedding. The salad choices would be key. I ordered a chicken Caesar. My colleagues... read more

The restaurant is always very crowded and the wait is long. the food is your typical fast food chain. Good pizza, very large portions, good pasta. I gave it an overall 3 rating because it's not my type of food. I prefer smaller portions, cleaner food.

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
