We were in town for a baseball tournament and although we don't normally get Italian food out of town, there were so many in the top spots of Trip Adviser, we thought we'd give one a try. We were quite disappointed. The restaurant is not in a great neighborhood. We were seated quickly and food brought quickly but our server... More

I ordered a take out sandwich and said ready in 15 minutes and was. Wrap with care to go. Waitress very friendly and offer me a menu to take home as I often order take out.

Used to go here often but had not been back for years, what a mistake! Their food has only gotten better. The waitress was just great and fun to be with, the food just the best. The long hots were really hot and spicy. The ravioli made my wife's meal great but also the next day's lunch. Even the bread... More

The white pasta fagioli was outstanding. There was enough for a second meal. The order of chicken parm was large and delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive.

This is an old neighborhood Italian restaurant. The decor has probably been the same since the 60's. It almost has an old world charm. The food was ok but well priced. Cool thing was they had Utica Club on tap!

Welcome back to decades gone by. In this case it works. The decor probably has not changed since the Sixties and that makes it feel kinda fun. The food took a while to get to our party of 12 but was well worth the wait. Most of us could not finish our meals. We will definitely return next time we're... More

My go to place. Every time someone asks where to eat in Utica this is it. Never been dissappointed. Best meatballs in Utica, stuffed long hots, fried calarmari, layered eggplant, lasagna. Full glass of wine. Try it!

Joey's is a little off the beaten path in Utica in a bit of a rundown mixed use neighborhood. Inside the decor is a step back in time. Vinyl green checked table cloths and dark wood abound. But the food is good and this is old school Italian nothing trendy just good solid basics. The homemade fusilli was cooked perfectly... More
