“Best in town”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Joe's is a very good, original Italian style restaurant. Their bread is made fresh and is a good start to a wide variety of Italian dishes.

“Great Italian, friendly staff”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Consistently good food at reasonable prices. Staff, often one of the owners, provide good service. I have had most of their entrees and have not been disappointed. The bread and dipping sauce is the best I have eaten. Portions are large enough to share or bring home for a second meal.

“First-Rate Food, Underdeveloped Service, Dull Decor”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Joe's Pizza and Pasta offers the best pizza in southwestern Louisiana. Rendered in the New York style, the pizza features a tasty but thin and exquisitely baked crust as well as a tomato sauce that is spot-on with regard to acidity level (it is wonderfully free of the sweetness that characterizes the sauces in too many pizzerias in this region). The combination of topping-cheeses produces a genuinely savory taste that hovers between provolone, Parmesan, and cheddar. From pepperoni and sausage through mushroom, olives, and bell peppers, the topping are not only fresh but evidence laudable depth of flavor. That having been said, Joe's Pizza suffers from certain deficits. The service is unpredictable. Some servers are friendly and polite; others are hasty and offhand. During a recent Sunday-night visit, we were met at the door with a rebuffing announcement that business was slow and that the restaurant would be closing ninety minutes ahead of schedule. After complaining that we drove from another city to dine there on the basis of advertised schedules, we were admitted, but we were later presented with to-go boxes and a bill well before one diner had finished. Throughout the meal, we could observe the chef standing and sometimes pacing, arms folded, in front of a TV. Decor at Joe's could also use some work,. A thudding beige paint job, black plastic tablecloths, and paintings of Italian scenes that look as if they were done during the youth of Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra make for a sobering dining experience. Joe's is well worth a visit. It produces an excellent meal. But more follow-through is needed with regard to the overall dining experience.
