This place seems to be where the locals eat when they are going for an Italian meal. We enjoyed our dinner.

This is definitely great Italian food. I especially loved the salad bar, very retro. I will be back! The staff was very friendly and welcoming which means a lot to me.

Our family has eaten at Joe & Mima for years. Virtually all dishes are home made. The marinara is world class. Wonderful classic Italian family owned restaurant. For lunch subs are excellent

This is a locally owned Italian restaurant with one of the owner "Mimma" a real Italian chef. Quality of food is always high. We eat here at least once per week always bring out of town friends. Just wish they had tablecloths! Great selection and she will prepare to order.

Loved the cozy feel. Huge menu.! My dinner companion had the Walnut and pecan cr usted chicken. I had the salmon. Salmon was amazing. A small but tasty salad bar.

It has become a tradition go to Joe & Mimma's on Friday nights when we are able. It is a family run restaurant, with good food and excellent service. We have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years.
