“We love it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

"Busy, noisy, bursting at the seams", may not sound like a positive dining review, but it is. This place has fabulous food and great service. The servings are incredibly HUGE, great for a couple of left over meals. I think the "to go" packages are standard fare for every diner!! If you are looking for ambiance and quiet romance, this is not the place. But if you are looking for a good time and great food, go to Joe's! My favorite - chicken marsala. mmmmmm!

“Authentic Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Reasonable prices and excellent "Italian" food. Great ambiance. Waitress was very personable and attentive. Best Cannoli I have ever had. Calimari wasn't as good as expected so I wouldn't order it again. I'll stick to their excellent Italian dishes.

“Very good Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Joes has been around in this location for probably 40 years or so. It has changed owners and styles many times. Currently we are enjoying your standard Italian fare there. They have many other items. My husband has had the steak and it was fine. One caution if you like chicken marsala don't order it here. It almost tastes like a Chinese dish..or at least it used to so we don't chance it.

“Don't leave town! Joe's is the best Italian restaurant in Moreno Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

If you want Italian with a Sicilian bite, you don't need to leave Moreno Valley. This restaurant is probably the best in town and has a huge menu and is reasonably priced. Operating since 1979, Joe's is kind of challenging to access off Alessandro and the parking lot is essentially one-way, so you must turn around at the rear. The immediate lobby area was inviting and the waitresses seated us as soon as possible. The rest rooms were clean and adequate. A few large screen TVs showing sports decorate the walls.

We had lasagna and meat dishes. The minestrone soup was surprisingly good. I recommend the fairly mild meatballs that go well with anything. There was plenty of leftover spaghetti to take home for tomorrow's lunch. All was tasty and satisfying. Joe's was well patronized by the March ARB military base crowd sprinkled with a healthy mix of construction workers, families with kids and couples seeking a little romance. Bottom line: Its the best in town and unless you are a gourmet (No "Tuscan cuisine" here!) or very picky; you should be happy to Eat at Joe's.
