Have enjoyed Joseph's for about 8 years. It has been so popular with the local and finicky foodies from afar.excellent choices from Robert, Head Chef. Regardless of the entries, you will be Delighted. I enjoy the Veal Piccata, Osco Bucco and the Trio Pasta Appetizer to name a few. The homemade pasta is also for sale along with sauces, soups...

Had dinner here with a family member and was so pleased by the quality of the food, it was absolutely delicious. We had fresh pasta with stuffed chicken breast and a calamari dish. Everything was perfectly seasoned, hot, and we cleaned the plates! The tiramisu was also very good. Have eaten here many times over the years and have experienced... More

Joseph's is a fine, Italian restaurant among a region with many good ones. They always have a few out of the ordinary specials, last night scallops and chicken for example. They make all their pasta and they have mastered the sauces as well. Their standard menu has both pastas, many with 1/2 portions, as well as many standard ones.they always... More

Had lunch today at Joseph's - while the prices may scare some away, you get what you pay for! Lobster, asparagus risotto for an app, delicious and enough for 3 but the two of us ate it all. Pan fried sole on a spinach bed, with gnocci and lemon reduction for lunch, delicious. Brought some home. Striped bass special, delicious.... More

New Year's Eve did not detract from the warm, friendly atmosphere and very good food. Main dishes were excellent; key lime pie for dessert was a bit too tart and sweet. Service was a bit slow.

The food at Josephs's is excellent. However, the restaurant is noisy and the wait staff is just OK. They don't accept reservations but they do take call ahead which sometimes doesn't always work. If they could get their front-of-house operations as good as their kitchen, this restaurant would be outstanding. The bakery is very good.

While it is a bit pricey, I forgive them. We have nice service here, good food and we enjoy the atmosphere very much. Hint to owners, how about take out of those antipastos we buy for the table in a size for one or two all prepared in the case? Yum. I especially would love to be able to take... More

It is the north end close to home. The food is fresh, delicious, and always consistent. Great customer service! Delicious desserts. You just can't go wrong with any menu items. Truly always look forward to dining here, and we have tried many Italian restaurants in the north end.

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...
