I have been eating here for over 30 years. I have never been disappointed. It is not the cookie-cutter Italian franchise restaurant. Great food. Great service.

Authentic food, friendly servers and owners. My favorite dish is the grilled salmon over a bed of warm farro and vegetables. Also delicious: Penne Amatriciana and Penne Rustiche.

We were passing through Danville, which is a very charming town and Joe and Momma's was a recommendation of our BnB host. We had a truely wonderful meal with service that reflected the same level of warm hospitality and southern charm. If you have a chance do yourself a favor and eat at this delightful establishment.

Whenever in Danville, it is a real treat to enjoy a meal at Joe and Mimma's! Authentic delicious Italian food: a great selection on the menu for meat dishes, pizzas, desserts, etc. A wonderful salad bar which is THE ONLY place I have ever had marinated carrots; and they are absolutely delicious!!! Have never even seen them on any salad... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. They have a great small salad bar with Italian items like olives and marinated mushrooms and pasta salad to add to the typical options. Super good choices. You can't go wrong with this choice!

We went to this local spot tonight with friends from here and had a pretty good meal. Not really Italian but that was by choice as they have many Italian dishes on the menu. The salad bar was average.

Our favorite for more than 30 years! Great pizza & subs. No, wonderful pizza & subs! The pizza's crust is just right, chewy but not too thin or thick. And the subs are toasted so they're just crisp. Yum! But it's their specials we really enjoy for a nice dinner. Eat in or carry out, lunch or dinner, Joe &... More
