I was living in Lexington, going to UK, when this restaurant opened in the early 70s. It was a huge hit when it opened - we waited in lines around the block to get in. Fast forward 40 years and I am visiting friends in Lexington. The food was just as I remembered it (although the location is different). The pizza and pasta are great - but the bread sticks are like no other! Worth the trip just for them. Service was good - very friendly young man. Thoroughly enjoyed the place for eating and visiting with friends.

Nice atmosphere, good food, and reasonable prices. Our waitress was very attentive, she kept refilling our glasses we almost floated away. We were there on UK's move-in day so things were a little hectic, but it was a great experience. We will definitely have it on our list of places for future trips.

When visiting Lexington, we love to hit Joe Bologna's. We really enjoy the breadsticks, pizza, and even the antipasto salad. Service is attentive and food served pretty promptly. If you go during dinner, you should expect a wait.

I love the location and the atmosphere. I am big on Italian, and the bread sticks are to die for. I usually have to take most of the pizza home fro breakfast the next day. Breakfast of champions...or coach potatoes.

The food was fantastic- although the breadsticks are HUGE (one is plenty for two people). The atmosphere- inside an old church- is very interesting. Good value.
