First off the bakery is great. As far as the restaurant is concerned you need to remember you are in Haverhill and adjust your sights. They got started downtown as a bakery and did fine it seems then moved outside of town, almost in North Andover and started the restaurant. At first we used to stop in mornings from Cedardale...

I hadn't been for quite a while and recently enjoyed lunch with several family members. Most of us had something different and all enjoyed the meal and 3 of us came home with a doggy bag. I would visit again and next time leave room for some dessert.

Quality is the operative here. Excellent selection of dishes well prepared and serviced with care. Bread could stand for the meal itself (well, they originated as a bakery) served with olive oil, a side of the best white bean paste and selection of olives. Never had anything not to my liking. When friends visit from out of town they always... More

Joe's Trattoria offers a consistently outstanding dinner any time my husband and I have a chance to have a dinner out. The food is Italian, but there is so much more than pasta: beef, chicken, seafood, pizza. When we get to go, I always try the special. My husband loves the pasta Bolognese. The atmosphere is warm and classy, and... More

I love the butternut squash ravioli here and the cannolis that are made fresh. The exterior seems pretty bleak, but inside it is nice and homey. It can get loud sometimes.

Joseph's is our "go to" spot in Haverhill. Homemade pasta makes all the difference in many dishes. The Pasta De Mare is a daily special, usually with scallops, mussels, salmon, and another fish. If you have another sauce you prefer, they are always happy to oblige. Excellent wine selection, and an unbeatable staff behind the bar, which is where we... More

I love to stop by for their paninis and desserts. The food here is authentic and delicious! The desserts are to die for! I have ordered many cakes from here for special occasions and everyone always gives me compliments. This is a nice place tucked away in Bradford. Great for dates, and family dining.

We have eaten dinner here many times over the past 10 years or so. In all that time I never considered the place a bakery until now. With dinners in the past we were always given a treat, a macaroon cookie, with the check. The cookie was always delicious but we never went further and ordered a desert. We held... More

This was selected for a business dinner, but the place is perfect for couples. Quaint, out of the way, and inviting. The selection was appropriate, not like some restaurants that try to do too much and only do them average. This restaurant did well from beginning to end. Most of my party went with the seafood dishes and we weren't... More

This is the first 5 stars I have rated any restaurant! Robert, the Head Chef, has a Passion for Italian fare. His devotion has a ripple effect influencing the Cooks, Waiters, Bartenders and Staff. My Wife and I attended a cooking class years ago and it was wonderful. He matched your cooking skills to adapt in the kitchen. Novice to... More
