My local college student heard great things about this restaurant, so we went there on our last visit. As soon as we walked in, the smells were wonderful. Four different entrees and the Bottomless House Salad were ordered. The Italian dressing on the salad had...More

Delicious Italian specialties at reasonable prices served by an efficient, pleasant, attentive staff. Joe's has a full bar, as well, and an extensive wine list. The eggplant parm is out of this world. We visit frequently for their specials.
