great Italian food

I have eaten here several times, alone and with friends. Their food is delicious and atmosphere is wonderful. It's a rather small but cozy environment, but food is out of this world.

The best steak in Joplin! But the thing that stood out the most was the incredible service! Our waitress was the best that we have had in some time. She made us feel like family. With the quality of food and the outstanding service, Caldones is our new favorite restaurant in Joplin.

A group of colleagues went here for lunch. There was no one at Caldone's. We could not figure out why. The location has great ambience, the service was quick and courteous and the food fabulous. We kicked things off with a very delicious artichoke dip, followed by pasta and warm sandwiches. Zero complaints from this group! We will be going... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on Valentine's Day. I'm glad we came for lunch, as they were already totally booked for dinner! This was our first visit here & it won't be our last. We both enjoyed the décor of an old, downtown brick turned into a wonderful Italian restaurant. Our server was truly great. She was... More

For atmosphere and excellent food you cannot beat Caldones. Chicken Marsala, veal parmigiana and chicken parmigiana are all amazing!!! Large portions, superior wait staff and management. Nice, quaint atmosphere. Love everything about Caldones.

Just stopped in for lunch today, and all I can say is, "Wow!" The staff is very friendly and welcoming, but the food is good enough I would still return if they weren't!! We started off with the best spinach artichoke dip I've ever had! Even the house salad dressing was delicious. The tortellini portabella was beyond amazing. My husband... More

The food was ok, and friendly staff, owner visited several tables for chit chat, but I don't think anyone there has read their own menu. At the top of each page, it lists all the stuff you're supposed to get with each entrée, but they don't bring those items- you have to specifically request them. Turns out there's no extra... More

This is a nice Italian place that looks small but is much larger inside. They have great food. Try it and you'll agree!

My wife and I drove to Joplin from Kansas City to meet family from Oklahoma for an evening of food and fellowship. I so thankful for my cousin in choosing Caldone's for our gathering. All seven who gathered for dinner were very pleased. One of the seven dishes stood out. That was the Chef Dwight's Tower. It's composed of a... More

We live near Joplin -- Caldone's is one of our favorites. The atmosphere is intimate and interesting. The food is excellent. I'd highly recommend for a romantic meal, but we also enjoy going with our children.
