Food is excellent - wait staff and atmosphere is good.

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... read more

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...

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.
