Close the doors." There was no notice that could be seen anywhere until you go up to the door :( Needed to update so people like myself not from the area know and don't get their hopes up for Italian.

It was price that was a bummer, but I liked the place. My husband and daughter did also. Large portions, family feel. I expected uncle Mario to walk in any minute. No sweet tea? What's a girl to do? Get a canned drink. Meh.

Very casual dining experience for the whole family with friendly staff in a comfortable atmosphere. The food, starting with appetizers, was delicious and fresh. The homemade tomato sauce was outstanding and enjoyed by everyone in our party. Great place for all!

While visiting friends in the area, they got takeout from Joe's for dinner one night -- a baked ziti. It was delicious. They said it is their "go-to" place for Italian food.
