Heard this was rated the #1 Italian restaurant in town so wanted to try it out. Service was good. We were with friends. I ordered fettaccini alfredo with shrimp. Way too much sauce for my taste and didn't have much taste. I expected it to...More

We were very surprised at how good the Italian food here was - I've had food nowhere near this good in NYC! The carbonara was creamy and sinfully rich, perfectly seasoned with perfectly al dente pasta. We ordered off the menu to enjoy the bolognese...More

Stayed at the Hampton Inn. Restaurant is in shopping center adjacent to the hotel. Wife had eggplant and I had carbonara. Both were excellent. Lounge with music. Will go back on the next trip.

Located just off the main shopping area, the restaurant's exterior does little to attract attention. Ditto, the interior is plain, but cozy. What makes this restaurant a "5-star" is what's important: food, presentation, and service. All spot on!

Great little find. I was there on a Tuesday and it was very slow. Service was perfect. Tortellini was amazing. Highly recommend.

We go here every time we visit Hot Springs. If you like a genuine local Italian restaurant, you will like J $ S Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is welcoming and romantic. The food is prepared from family recipes and reasonably priced. The service is good.
