Always delicious pasta, salads and sandwiches. Best Cannoli's I've ever had! Service is fast and Joe is always so welcoming. Never had a bad meal.

Friends visiting for a week & spent a night in Biloxi leaving me no time to cook a dinner to celebrate my Mom's 90th Birthday. She loves Italian food. She didn't want to eat out. This was a good choice & not a far drive. Good eggplant Parmesan & lasagna. The spaghetti sauce ok. Big portions of good salad. Our... More

Nice friendly place. Had lunch. Husband had Cuban sandwich and I had Philly steak. The Cuban was not exactly like one in Fl. He thought it was very good. My Philly steak was delicious. We were surprised that we could not order water so we had iced tea. The bakery items and desserts look great. Also Italian items on the... More

We stopped in several months for lunch and thought it was OK. Many people say how great it is, so we decided to give it a 2nd try for dinner. Salad is very good but that is where it ends. Tasteless and heated microwaved pasta makes the texture very sticky..Lousy and overpriced highlighted by a unfriendly owner.

We go to here at least three times a month. Mostly take out unless we are entertaining. Service is friendly. The lasagna is world class, the egg plant parmigiana is one of my favorites, the meatballs and spaghetti is my wife's favorite. All the sandwiches are very good. I think they make everything themselves. Especially their soups. We keep one... More

Gelato Joe's never fails to please. With a friendly and competent staff and inspired menu a lunch is beyond pleasant. I stop in when running errands with the kids to grab cups of gelato .

Just as we sat down to order, we heard one of the owners threatening to fire an employee. He cursed at her, using the "F-bomb" and stormed out. Within minutes, many of the other waitresses started apologizing to all of the customers about the incident. We overheard a couple of the waitresses say that this owner had threatened many of...

Haven't been here is quite awhile, and I have to say, it's not what it used to be! The food was ok, but way overpriced for what we got! The waitress was nice enough expect for when I questioned why they only have bottled water...$2 for a small bottle of water...that's ridiculous! You could at least be generous enough to... More

This place is a local favorite! The strawberry salad, chicken salad, and fettuccine are my favorites. Although you just about can't go wrong with the food here! The atmosphere gets a little hectic sometimes, and it's a little pricey , but the delicious food makes it worth the hassle and the price.
