This restaurant just happened to be across the street from where we were staying in Syracuse. There is such a thing as serendipity. What a fantastic place. My wife is still raving about her meal: shrimp scampi and I had the lasagna with a big meatball on the side. In-house homemade pasta and sauces. And something called brosha for dessert:... More

We walked in without reservations and were seated in 3 minutes. The server was friendly and fast. Our drinks came quickly and she took our orders. The food was delicious. I'd go back again and would definitely recommend it.

We love Joeys but we hadn't been here in about 2 years. That will never happen again. Dinner was better than ever when we recently dined here. We started with the clams casino and fried mozzarella. We received 3 large delicious clams. The fried mozz is homemade and is outstanding. For our dinners, my husband always loves the haddock francaise... More

We usually travel with our dog and frequently rely on carry-out meals. While passing through Syracuse last year, we found Joey's via TripAdvisor. We returned again this year. The food is fantastic and the people are great. I usually get eggplant parmigiana. It is exquisite. My Plus 1 gets the veal marsala. Delicious! Their bread is also wonderful - it... More

We stopped for a long overdue fix of Joeys -it was ver busy but yet we greeted warmly by the hostess and staff ! The chefs creation of gin riggies was off the charts - our server Gina described it and she wasn't wrong - It's ALWAYS a great stop

The food is very good for lunch and reasonable. The steak salad has mixed greens and flank steak really good. The pasta selections also looked very hearty and authentic and were tasty according to my coworkers. The quality of food excellent Would recommend for lunch, never patronized for dinner. It is my understanding that the extra food expense is warranted.

I am staying at the Red Roof and within a EASY walking distance. Food was outstanding. Had the Beans & Greens soup and a Caesar salad for 1. Super friendly and nice service. If I didn't have my dog, I would eat there. I will be trying something different every night. They packaged up my food nicely for pickup including... More

Downtown Syracuse has many great restaurants but if you want exceptional food and service without battling parking issues, this is the place to go. Great menu and great homemade pastas, deserts and much more

We were in Syracuse for a weekend. We did a quick search for something near our hotel and found Joey's. We walked out after our meal thinking it was the best Italian we have had and the best waitress we have encountered in a looooong time. Outstanding meal. You will not be disappointed

We were in town for just a night on our way to Wells for my sons soccer game. My husband had been to Joey's twice before, this was my first. And was it ever worth the visit. Everything was awesome...from the bread dipped in red roasted pepper oil to the very end~a cannoli. I started with Pasta Fagioli and it... More
