My spinach Stromboli was to die for! Seriously, the best one I have ever had..the dough is perfection. The lasagna was tasty as well. They make their Italian sausage in house and though I'm not a fan of Italian sausage I actually like theirs. However, don't waste your time on the side salad--not much to them. The restaurant is oddly... More

It was price that was a bummer, but I liked the place. My husband and daughter did also. Large portions, family feel. I expected uncle Mario to walk in any minute. No sweet tea? What's a girl to do? Get a canned drink. Meh.

Very casual dining experience for the whole family with friendly staff in a comfortable atmosphere. The food, starting with appetizers, was delicious and fresh. The homemade tomato sauce was outstanding and enjoyed by everyone in our party. Great place for all!

While visiting friends in the area, they got takeout from Joe's for dinner one night -- a baked ziti. It was delicious. They said it is their "go-to" place for Italian food.

We were just in Boone for the Grandfather MTN Highland Games and in four days went to Joe's twice. My teen girls and I loved the atmosphere with Frank Sinatra and friends playing through the speakers and pictures of family and NYC on the walls. The first visit we had the stromboli and fried zucchini appetizer. The zucchini was apparently... More

The fancy side wasn't open when we arrived. We ordered pasta, delicious sauce! Spaghetti was kind of thin and premade (saw the chef take premade pasta out of drawer and drop into hot water to reheat) - still delicious though! Took leftovers home and had them for lunch the next day. Ordered the cannoli (excited about that) but ended up... More

I craved Italian on our family Boone trip, and I got it at Joe's! We read reviews on TripAdvisor to make selection, and reviews did not lead me astray (thank you)! My husband, 2 yr-old and I enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs along with the lasagna. Everything tasted absolutely delicious with beautiful presentation. I would enjoy the restaurant at any stage...

I am very picky about Italian food and this is the real thing! This is real Italian gravy not something premade from a jar. Homemade sausage, too which are on several entrees as well as for sale by the pound. Cannoli are also fresh and filled as you order them. They have family size pasta bowls available for feeding a...
