This place got a good recommendation by local business owners. I really wanted to like this place, but its one of the more disappointing places i have ate. When my wife and I entered we were told to sit anywhere by an older woman. So we sat in a booth. My wife wasnt even seated before she asked us what... More

I eat here about one a week. Very authentic Italian food which is always consistent in quality. I have never had anything I didn't like. Staff is warm and friendly. This is a family run restaurant with several locations. Ray is the family member responsible for this location and pays attention to detail. Their lunch specials are a tremendous value.... More

Awesome thin crust pizza and salad! It is very crisp and tasty. The service was also good. I would recommend a visit for anyone.

Good as always and this time we discovered the good lunch specials which are good any day. Highly recommend the pizza or chicken florentine. This location has never been too crowded the couple times I've been so easy to get in and out. Probably some of the best pizza around.

Very good dinner salads. We ordered a variety of dishes within our party. They even have fried chicken dinners if you are tired of pasta. The french fries were a big hit with my husband's family - very similar to Steak N Shake. The only thing is the restaurant is looking a little tired and probably needs an upgrade -... More

I've been working at Joe's for about a year now. And they are not bad. You might get a waitress that is in a bad mood but we all have those days. The staff here tries as hard as they can to please you. But you could be a little nicer too. The dishes I would recommend are the pizza... More

I tried the toasted ravioli and the spinach/artichoke canneloni.....both were excellent. The location was great (next to the wine tasting bar) and was a perfect choice for a great evening.
