Outstanding Italian food. Homemade by chefs right in view of the comfy dining room. Every dish, from appetizer to entree is very well done. I only wished I had leftovers! Instead we 'rolled' out of there, so very happy, and very full!! Loved it, pasta, excellent. Lamb, succulent, veal, perfect. Then there were the desserts. Unbelievable.

I moved back to the area almost a year ago. Josephs is nearby and I was hoping to make it my "go to" restaurant. First time was for lunch and the food and service were excellent. Each time after that was for dinner and the food was good, although a bit salty the last time. The service however was poor... More

We met friends for an early dinner since they don't take reservations for smaller parties. We didn't get a booth and had to wait a bit to get our waitress.The bread served was hot but way too salty. The dinners were very good and portions not too large. Waitress was ok but she brought our tiramisu dessert after the coffees... More

Joseph's is an upscale Italian place in Bradford Massachusetts. The food is very good they have a bakery there too so their bread is delightful. Love their homemade soup.

I visited for lunch on a Sunday for one of my favorite dishes, Bolognese. Over the years, my wife & I have eaten here many times, but had moved away. I always remember their fantastic salad, bread and their dishes—always prepared correctly and always enjoyable, and decided to make the drive for what I knew would be wonderful food. On... More

I had heard that Joseph's had good food, so I went with a friend to try it out. We were not disappointed! I had a Fichi e Prosciutto pizza, a nice change from the usual sauce and cheese. My friend had Mushroom Ravioli , which she loved. I will definitely go back.

We had dinner here the other day. We each had a chicken and pasta dish and the were both excellent (Chicken Limon and Chicken Saltimbocca). The service was also exceptional (wish I remembered her name), she was always on top of anything we needed. The restaurant was very crowded and they don't take reservations for small parties so plan on... More

Joseph's was highly recommended by good friends. This past Sunday both my wife and I had the urge for Italian food, particularly chicken or egg plant parmesan. These were not on their menu. I settled for a breaded chicken breast stuffed with fresh mozzarella. One of the reasons we wanted to try this restaurant is that they make their own... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for years -- and after I moved from the area, I make sure we work it in to our itinerary when we are anywhere near the area! This is the real deal -- from bread and pastries to meats and seafood to pasta -- inventive but true Italian fare. Service is excellent. Get a... More

I have been here a few times to pick up Italian cookies for my place of work. The staff helping me at the Bakery were very pleasant. There was a small issue with an order that I was getting one of the times, and the manager was extremely nice in fixing the issue. The cookies were excellent every time we... More
