Really good regional Italian food

This is terrific Italian food ... Would be popular on Mulberry St in Manhattan's Little Italy, much less Joplin. Innovative menu w/kitchen-staff to pull it off. Nice place too. Good ambiance. Good for special occasions as well as daily dining. Ask if they have Oso Buco (sp???) - veal shank. If so... read more

Under the new ownership and management, this restaurant is becoming a great option for downtown lovers and passersby alike. It sits in between 3rd and 2nd Street on Main and has the ambiance of a great Italian restaurant. Since changing ownership, the new servers and managers are doing an excellent job establishing a new name and a new vibe. The... More

Caldones is either really good or it's really bad. No way to tell when you should be there. You'll definitely be seated closest to the kitchen as possible and hear the server complain about your table no matter how busy or not it is. The food will either be really really good or left over from lunch. You'll really try... More

Food is excellent here. Lots of options on the menu. Service is good but it's a nice restaurant so don't expect to be rushed. I've eaten here two years in a row when I come to town for the Joplin Memorial Half Marathon. A great, local restaurant.

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
