Great little Italian restaurant

Meals taste great, portions are generous and happy hour deals make for a fun dining experience. We find the staff very attentive.

We have gone to Little Joey's a fair amount of times over the years and ALWAYS come away with a very PLEASING experience. They have a fair amount of regular customers and the service staff call them by name, which makes it feel friendly and welcoming. The food is very good and the staff is exceptional! An excellent menu selection.... More

Tried Joey's and were not impressed. Slow service, so-so atmosphere and average Italian food, nothing to brag about. Haven't been back since. If you cannot get into Francesco's this is ok at best.

Homestyle atmosphere and excellent service. We enjoyed our dinner and will be back sometime. Just a little claustrophobic for me.

The food overall is mediocre. Not bad and not great. Prices are reasonable and service is a little slow. Tables are packed very close together. Would I recommend it - maybe - you try it. It's worth a visit.

We enjoyed dinner with friends at this restaurant again. The food, while not fancy, is always good. I had veal piccata with angel hair pasta. We shared the tiramisu for desert and it was one of the best.

We visited friends in FL and ate at Little Joey's in January. My friend said there were many items on the menu and thought that I could find a few gluten free items. When we got there, every menu item had gluten in it. I asked the waiter if I could substitute fries for pasta, and was told that wasn't... More

Menu reasonably priced but red sauce needs to be fresher.. Service not great - it always seems as if there are not enough attentive servers during busy times.. During the afternoon lunch, the server we had seemed "patronizing" to us -- & we could hear them loudly discussing their personal lives with each other..

We (mate & I) finally visited Little Joey's almost a couple months ago - I resisted writing a review immediately after...well, because we were more than a "Little" disappointed with a few things and didn't want to overreact in my review. We had been considering this restaurant for a good long time and knew the opportunity would eventually come because... More
