Always fresh and delicious. Everything from pasta to salads are good. It's always a bit chilly here so don't​ forget a sweater

Joey's is my go to place in Syracuse. Service is excellent. I prefer Joey's upstairs for weekly visits - more casual. My favorite dishes are Boston baked haddock on Fridays, Bolognese Sauce is the best, try it on angel hair pasta or for a healthier option try the chicken cacciatore. The Utica greens are a great appetizer or if you... More

Good service but mediocre, uninspiring food. Calamari salad ordinary, not special; too many veggies. Antipasto appetizer was gigantic, easily enough for an entree for 2 guests. Too bad there was only salami, eggs, tuna & lots of veggies but no interesting Italian sliced meats. Unable to recommend this restaurant.

Probably because it's graduation weekend, but it seemed like the tables were unusually close together leaving no space between tables (the back of my husband's chair was touching the table behind us). Some (but not all) of the meals that we ordered were surprisingly small portions for an italian restaurant, and the marinara sauce was tasteless. We've come here for... More

Very good Italian food. Family restaurant. Chicken Marsala was perfect. Salami and roasted red pepper appetizer was memorable. Warm bread with garlic butter is delicious. Great wait staff. Highly recommend.

Lots of dishes to choose from! Decided on the small (!) pizza, my husband choose the veal. The pizza was large enough to feed two and was very good. My husband's veal was excellent in the center, but burned on the edges. The pasta that accompanied the veal was delicious.

Joeys has become my go-to 'when I am in Syracuse on a Friday night. I can always count on a great fried haddock dinner accompanied by a very good salad and warm bread!!

Four of us dined at Joey's on Saturday, April 22, 2017. From the time we walked in, until the time we left, we were treated like royalty! We arrived late for our reservation, yet were seated very quickly & graciously, (and it was VERY busy). Angela was our server, and she was AWESOME. She couldn't do enough for us, and... More
