Excellent!

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.

This was an awesome experience from beginning to end. I just got back from a week in San Francisco CA a day before eating at Caldone's. In San Francisco, I experienced many fine dining experiences, but not one of them compared to the level of Caldone's. Let me see if I can paint a picture: 1. The beautiful and unique... More

My wife and I heard about Caldone's via a web search, and stopped by for dinner and drinks when traveling between Dallas and St. Louis. Had a BLAST. First, the dinner was top notch (I had swordfish, she had a tenderloin pasta), but the real fun was up in the speakeasy bar. A delightful place, it is set up like... More

My co-workers and I ordered take out from Caldones and my (very busy) employer went to pick it up. She arrived when the order was supposed to be ready only to have to wait another 30-45 minutes before the food was finally ready. I thought that had to have been a just a bad day in the kitchen and the... More

All things considered, this was probably the worst dining experience of anywhere I've had the displeasure of reviewing in TripAdvisor. Joplin was a half-way point on our road trip and somehow we thought this would be a good alternative to the plethora of chains along our route. We arrived about 4:45pm so we were the only ones there. None of... More
