Made a reservation over the phone as recommended by our B&B host and this was no problem in English, plus very glad we did as the place was absolutely packed and the tables were being turned over at an alarming rate!
Had appetisers, mains and desserts and the service was super, super quick. It is certainly not a place where you linger all evening. Seemed to be that everyone was having the steaks which you can see why when you enter the restaurant and the choices of meat are in front of you as well as the chef cooking it.
The service we received was efficient but don't expect banter with the waiting staff as it just isn't their style!
Prices are brilliant and our whole meal with three courses and wine only came to €43 for two which is excellent for Rome.
I only wish we had more time to come back here again, don't hesitate to book.

We ate here twice during our stay in Rome. The service was excellent, although we tried to order in Italian they helped us in English if we were unsure. If they know you are English, they will provide you with a menu in English to complement the Italian menu so that you know what you are ordering. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was lovely, especially the deserts :)

We had 2 of our 3 dinners here. Fabulous restaurant, great friendly staff, quick service but great food, lovely wine, nice ambience. All very professional and efficient. Good quality honest food at good value. We tried risotto, gnocchi, pizza, capresi, mixed salad, all very good.

It is a big restaurant but one area seems to be for large groups, so not noisy. Lots of big family groups eating, but couples too.

Will return for sure.

When you find a restaurant where people queue before opening and book a return visit before leaving you know you are into a special restaurant. This is what happens at the Restaurant Joseph which provides excellent food and service in a friendly atmosphere.

If you are looking for Michelin styled menu forget this restaurant if you want good honest food you are on luck.

The food and service was so good we returned for three nights. I forgot to mention the excellent value for money that the restaurant offers. Whenever in Rome we will eat in Joseph's
