My wife and I make it here just once a year. We found Josephine's the first time we came here and have been coming back every year. This time I had the meatballs, sausage and pasta. As expected the meatballs we're the size of a...More

My husband and I took my parents there to celebrate my mother's birthday. They had been wanting to try Josephine's but every time they stopped by, the wait was too long. We ended up having to wait about 45 minutes, but it was definitely worth...More

Leave the kids with grandma and head there. Omg, the food is fabulous, and the atmosphere is romantic. I can't describe how great the food is. It is just flat out the best Italian I have ever had in a restaurant. I could even go...More

Always drive by and say I'll stop. Been missing a real good place. Very quaint and awesome food. Pasta and meat balls with sausage are good for dinner then lunch following day. A real traditional Italian restaurant

Just like Mom made! Very small place with a limited menu. But it was delicious!!! Menu changes weekly. Everything we had was so good and what we saw go by but didn't have looked so good. Great service and very friendly staff!

Had a great dinner at this restaurant. Everything from the salads to the entrees were done perfect. I would recommend the homemade meatballs, they were fantastic!

We found this place last year, it sits at the end of a strip mall and doesn't present itself as a place you would go while at the beach, but is some of the BEST Italian food I have had outside of Italy! The food...More

We had Josephine Combo (2 HUGE meatballs, sausage, meat sauce and pasta), which was so delicious and a large portion. Also, had veal marsala, which was also very good and large portion. Took dessert to go. $4.95 for a glass a wine...can't beat it. We...More

Moderate. Definitely not inexpensive but not over priced. With large portions we had a 2nd meal at home which made it economical for us.

This is a very small restaurant, so make sure to make reservations well in advance for a party of that size. The small menu changes weekly, but given advance notice, I'm sure they would accommodate your needs. The food is... More
