We like to come here for the Rib Eye and Pasta combination dinner. It is delicious.They have an open concept type kitchen so you can see them cooking. The staff is very friendly. It gets busy in there so i wouldn't go in with a time crunch. The owner walks around and talks to the patrons. He wants to make... More

Went here before a play to try somewhere new. And we were pleasantly surprised. Had the lasagne, chicken fettuccine and butter and Parmesan fettuccine. Homemade food all around. Finished it off with celebrity endorsed tiramisu. And the best part.....personal service. Joe came and visited with us. Son Mike was our server. Children and grandchildren all working there. Felt like I... More

Will definitely go back. We were treated like honored guests. Food was good simple Italian dishes. Pasta el dente and rich flavorful sauces.

Was not as great as expected. The waiter was not a bit inspired, must have been a bad day and the meal was not to the level we expected, unfortunate, will not be eager to return.

Married into an Italian family and Joseph's is the real deal. Always good food and plenty left over (just like our Italian family & friends...one never leaves the table hungry!). As authentic as it gets! I especially like the Tortellini Wild Mushroom & Gorgonzola salad dressing. Excellent!

We had a family gathering for people from Everett, Tacoma and Portland. We met at 11:00 am , before they typically open but had arranged to be allowed early entry. The owner greeted us in an extremely friendly manner. We were seated way in a back corner where there was plenty of space for our multi-aged group. The food was... More

Hubby and I stopped in for an early dinner off the happy hour menu. Spaghetti, meatballs and salad for two for under $25. You can't go wrong with that. The boss, Joe Stortini even stopped by to say hello. Always a friendly place with great value. Give it a go!

I treated my friend to her birthday lunch here. Our waitress was friendly and very attentive. Unfortunately, the meat sauce on my pasta was very salty. My friend who liked her lasagna was given a delicious ( free) scoop of spumoni ice cream for her birthday. The atmosphere is pleasant and we were greeted by Joe Sortini, the owner. Overall,... More

Joeseppi's delivers exactly what you would expect, it is a locally owned neighborhood Italian restaurant frequented by many regulars who enjoy pizza, pasta and other traditional Italian dishes. This is Italian comfort food, not fine dining, but it is very good Italian comfort food. Dining at Joeseppi's is more like stopping in for dinner at the neighbors rather than going... More
