My wife and I went here on Valentine's day and as soon as we began our meal she said she wanted to eat here for our anniversary too, so today that's what we did. Good ingredients, well prepared, and good service.

I hadn't been in this venue for many many years. On a whim (after tedious wedding dress shopping) the now husband & I stopped in for a needed & earned nip & nosh. It was perfect! The bartender was SUPER friendly & helped us with choosing our nosh. We settled on one of their flatbread pizzas. SO delicious! Our drinks... More

We have been to Joe's about a half-dozen times now over the past months and gotten carry-out also. I think I can honestly say that the pasta dishes are some of the best I've had in a long time, fresh and full of delicious flavor. Our friends really enjoyed their lasagna also. The atmosphere is very cozy, warm and comfortable.... More

We have been going there for years and they have hosted our Christmas party over the years. Their food is mostly Italian and their soup is great.

Menu somewhat limited, but every item we've eaten is delicious. Tried various entrees and will continue to sample others. We usually have to pack leftovers, as consume excess bread w/ soup or salad. Loaf of bread is fresh, great w/ oil & pepper. Staff is helpful if unsure about entree, also friendly.

A group birthday party that was so enchanced by the food. Each in our party of 10 enjoyed our exquisite and freshly made meals which ranged from pizza to salmon to eggplant. Our waitstaff was professional, friendly and attentive without hovering. A new place on our top 10 to be assured of a lovely repast.

I used to live going to Joe Bologna's for their amazing buffet. Unfortunately, they saw fit to remove it from the lunch menu. Meaning that now, lunch is not only less interesting, but also much more expensive. Sorry, but you've lost my business.

We haven't been here for a few years, so the décor change was nice to see. My companion ordered spaghetti and sausage while I had the chicken parmesan. The salads and bread were delicious, and my companion liked his dinner. My chicken parmesan was tasty but the chicken was rather rubbery and tough to cut.
