“Great Family Restaurant”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

This restaurant is the life blood of the family that owns it. Funky Italian interior that fun to look at. Food is great. Not much of a wine list but just order a carafe of house red. I usually order the raviolis but there are many good choices on the menu.

“Italian Restaurant in Escondido, CA”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

Great small Italian restaurant in Escondido. Had good choice of dishes, wine, and other drinks. There were two adults and one child in our party and we found dishes that each of us liked. The service was good and friendly. The restaurant is small but interestingly decorated. The location is near downtown Escondido and there was plenty of parking behind the place. The prices were reasonable although slightly on the higher side for this location.

“Great Homey Feeling and Delicious Italian Food”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

It's been a while since I've visited Joe's Italian Dinners, but I've been several times and love it. It's small and kitschy and feels like you're visiting family. The food is always delicious and prices are good. Even better, you can find coupons for free entrees in local magazines!

Because it's small, sometimes there is a wait for a table and it can get a little boisterous. But, the service is good and the food authentic.

If you're looking for tasty Italian in Escondido, I highly recommend a visit to Joe's.

“Best Italian Food In Escondido”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

Simply the best Italian food in all of North County. We have been going to Joes for about 15 years and never ever have we been dissappointed in the service, or quality of the food!
