Last evening, we visited Joseph;s Italian for dinner. I had received a gift certificate, and I wanted to use it. The decision was a very, very good one. I had not been to Joseph's for some time, and now I wish I had not waited. The veal I had was terrific. My bride enjoyed the lasagna with Italian sausage, and... More

The best traditional pizza in Bakersfield. All the entrees are good, especially the pesto sauce on cheese tortellini's. Family owned and operated, with three generations still working the place almost every day. Friendly staff and great service. We eat here at least twice a month!

I'm really reluctant to write this review but I owe it to Joseph's. This hole-in-the-wall is some of the best Italian in Bakersfield. Nothing fancy, no frilly presentation, just damn good food. The lasagna is the standard to which I measure all others. Ever had lasagna that has very little meat or cheese? or it falls apart when you try... More

I found this place by looking around on google for pizza . I'm 22 wks pregnant and I have been craving a pizza from King Leo's but they closed the place down so I haven't found a place close to that! I came across Joseph's and decided to give it a try after reading the reviews . Well came home... More

Got a pizza for take away. The first two pieces tasted good. The third had a little bonus in it just for me. A big hair. Nasty I won't be going back to Hairy's.

Joseph's Italian was recommended to us by a co-worker so My wife and I tried it for lunch. When we arrived at around noon, the place was already pretty full of the lunch crowd. The inside looks just as bad as the outside. It looks like it hasn't seen a renovation for decades.The greeter asked if we would mind sitting... More

Joseph's has always been one of my favorites in Bakersfield. Great steaks but the Calzone is my favorite! I'd recommend this place to anyone!

We had to travel to Bakersfield several times to attend to some family affairs. Every time we were there, we at at least one meal at Joseph's. The food was always pleasing and the service was very good. And I will say, one time when my wife's dish was not up to snuff, they made it right without giving us... More
