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

My husband and I went to dinner hoping to have a relaxing date night and Joeseppi's hit the mark perfectly. We loved our food, especially the sausage soup, which comes with your entrée (in lieu of a green salad). The atmosphere is friendly and the wait staff were very attentive without being pests. Joe Satorini, the owner and baseball/player coach... More

I was with a group for dinner here. Have been here before and enjoyed a good meal, but this time the service was slow and the food disappointing. My friend ordered a gluten free pizza that was inedible, my small individual pizza was small and disappointing.

Had a mini date night with the hubby. The staff were very welcoming, felt like we were with family. Sat at the first table in the dinning room, this is my favorite because it is fun to watch the action of the kitchen. The menu has a nice selection and they offer most dishes with a gluten free option also.

We visited Joeseppi's as part of a promotional dinner where a local energy solutions company gave their pitch for services and products. My wife and I both had the salmon fillet. It was a bit dry, although the rest of the meal was pretty good. I'm not sure if that is because it was a large group (about 40) or... More

Loved the place. Great setting. Excellent food. We ordered pasta dishes and all three of our meals were fabulous. I loved the Sicilian soup. I recommend it. The other two family members has a salad with homemade Gorganzola dressing. oh, and best part is that you get enough food for dinner and lunch the next day. ..generous portions.

You just gotta come to this eatery. They have the best chicken Marsala ever. I'm never disappointed with perfect al dente penne, juicy chicken and sauce that is just the right mix of sweet and savory. Too full to eat dessert so we just order tiramisu to go. I see great happy hour deals for all day Sunday too. I'm... More

Service was excellent. Meal was good. Our two teenage boys thought their meals were just okay. For the price the side salads were pretty simple.
