I have been a loyal fan of Joe's for more than 15 years. Fresh ingredients and friendly staff = Joe's Pizza & Pasta Palace. Sure there are other places to get pizza, but not a GREAT Pizza!!

We go there quite often. Pretty good, pizza. They own Al Fornos in Suffolk also. We call for take out at least once a month. Always nice servers. One of the owners is always there to say thank you.

Whenever I left Joe's I leave happy. Food is good, beer is good, portions are good, service is good. The place is clean. It's a little out of my way but always happy I made the trip.

I have been going to Joe's since I was at PDCCC. Delicious pizza, subs, and appetizers for casual dining. Lemon chicken and eggplant parmesan for an outstanding dinner. Several desserts to choose from such as cannoli, tiramisu, classic cheesecake, and lemon cello cake.

Joe's fast and friendly service is only surpassed by their delicious food! Joe's food is served quickly and always by good a pleasant server who keeps your tea glass filled! Why not visit Joe's today and discover why it is a favorite among locals.
