Both were to die for. Had told them it was her birthday and they provided a really great desert cannoli. Will definitely return on our next... More

So I have been to Joe's often. Not as much any more as the trip to eat at Joe's is too far. My advice...go and go often! Eat at Joe's! The food and service is great. Just like home for me. Joe grew up in my neighborhood and he has created a little slice o Queens in Rio Rancho!

Being Italian I expect a lot when I go into an Italian restaurant and this one stood the test. The wait staff, Victoria, was very attentive and friendly. MY husband had the chicken parmigiana and I had the lasagna and we did not leave one morsel on our plates. It was served piping hot and was done to perfection. Although... More

We thought we had been teleported to New Jersey, because everyone looked like they were Italian! We knew it had to be a good Italian restaurant and it was. The salads were fresh, and the pasta wonderful. We wish we lived closer so we could go back more often. You won't be disappointed.

While I normally go out to dinner with my sister-in-law or other family members, tonight I decided to dine alone. Sometimes, during past solo dining experiences, I have not had the best service - tonight was not one of them. My service was wonderful, down to the backup staff keeping water glass filled, table cleared. The food - I had... More

One of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. Amazing ambiance, amazing food, and great wait staff for pretty reasonable prices. You will not leave here disappointed. Would recommend it to anyone looking for that high star restaurant feeling for very reasonable costs.

Thank Jon C
