“Great food form a long time owner of family Italian food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

If it was not located in a large strip mall it would be a fine dining establishment

“Lots of Pasta and Meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Went to the Mothers's Day Brunch. They had carving stations for beef and ham, warming trays for meatballs, pork chops, salmon and another kind of white fish. They had pasta with three kinds of sauces. And fried potatoes. But there was very little choice for veggies or fruit. They had one warming tray of mixed veggies, cold cut up raw carrots, broccoli, etc., strawberries and pineapple. Iceberg lettuce (gross!) was offered with several dressings, as was plain romaine lettuce with Caesar dressing. It wasn't horrible, just pretty ordinary and not creative compared to ALL the different meat offerings. They had a good variety of pinafores for dessert and drinks were included, except for the $3 Mimosas. Great, attentive service for my group of eight, too. I just prefer trading off more creative, healthy veggies for less meat.

“Plenty of food; not exactly Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I love going to Joeseppis. Their sandwiches are spectacular, filling, varied, and come with your choice of a side salad, soup, or fries... all for about $10. The pasta dishes are fun because you can mix and match what pasta to go with what sauce. I haven't tried any of the dinner dishes, but they have enough food on the plate to make 2 dinners. Joe sponsors a "restaruant take over" about once a week, and some of the proceeds from that night go towards whatever charity is posted. So if the hostess asks, "are you with____" just say "yes" and know that you are donating to a good cause.

“Italian fare with a smile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

The food is good--not excellent--but there is a lot of it. Everyone is happy you are there, and the owner is very civic minded and donates a lot to community events. Not a bad deal all around.

“Nice community service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

I sure wish Tacoma had an Italian restaurant with really good food. But these guys do a lot for the community, and they are always busy, so I guess that's good enough.
