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.

It's a great place to come with the whole family. Pasta, Pizza, Entrees are all excellent, as are the soups and salads. The Sicilian Sausage Soup... More

We went there for one of my friends birthdays. It took our waitress about 1/2 hour to come back & take our order after we got there. We noticed that she was talking to the cooks, instead of taking care of her customers. All of us were looking over at her, to get her attention, but she just kept on... More

Joeseppi's is a family tradition for my parents and I. It is also amazing that the restaurant business is also a family tradition for the Stortini family. It's always a delight and pleasure to be personally greeted by Joe, himself. Every time my parents and I come to eat here, he always takes time to say hi. The food here... More

The food here is really very good, and so is the service. Mr. Joeseppi himself will come to your table to thank you for dining at his establishment. It is a very warm, family oriented experience. I like to bring friends there when they visit. As a bonus, the leftovers are always great for lunch on the next day
