“WAIT STAFF IN A FOG”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

First and last time visiting Little Joseph's.....the food was passable but the service was the worst. We asked for a refill on our drinks and they never came...when the waitress realized she forgot to refill our beverages she asked if we would like to take them to go...she then just brought the check..never asked if we wanted desert and coffee ...just handed us the check and the dirty dishes were still on the table....while we were waiting for our drink refills two members of the wait staff collided with each other spilling a whole tray of drinks all over....the floor....when we asked where we pay the bill a nice young man said he could process it for us...?he then proceeded to ask for all kinds of ID when my husband gave him a credit card. He stated he just wanted to make sure there was no identity theft......I wish the waitress had been that through with paying attention to our table...perhaps I could of had my drink with my meal not TO GO......FINAL WORDS - if you have No where to go, do not mind not having a beverage with your meal, like to sit at a table that never gets bussed then this is the place for you....

“Great hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We both had the meatball hoagie and a single slice of pizza. This was our first visit and we wanted to try more than one item. The bread is homemade on the hoagie. Very good texture and baked to perfection. The meatballs were like Noni made...

Our hoagies were served with potato salad and pickle. Very good potato salad.

Our slices of pizza were fresh and very tasty. I am a crust snob and really like it when you fold it in half and the juice (grease) runs down your hand, my personal description is drip pizza. It was outstanding... Cannot wait to come back.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a small place but so good! The only thing I don't care for is the 3 bean salad that is an optional add on to your dinner. Otherwise, I have never tried a dish I did not like. The service is pretty good most of the time. This is one place that we look forward to going back to.

“Just a little polish needed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

It smelled great upon entering the first time we went, but we ended up leaving because they didn't seem to know what they were doing. They were really confused on who was getting what table and who should be sitting where and when ... we waited a bit and left. Came back a couple days later because as I said it smelled like it would be worth it :) We were seated more quickly the second time we visited but it still seemed like they didn't really have a good handle on what server was handling what table(s). The food was tasty and the cost was reasonable. Our waiter was nice when we had the opportunity to talk to him. They seem to just need a little help at the front with coordinating who's sitting where and who gets what waiter / waitress. Also a bit of a delay upon leaving and paying the bill. But they do seems to know how to cook tasty food !!

“A Real Keeper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

If you are looking for a family feel and good Italian food, this is a good place to go.

Good food, good wine selection, and very friendly service make you feel like you are in someone's home.
