Reviews of Joe's Pizza & Pasta

This place has great Italian food with rich sauces. Prices are reasonless for the kind of food quality. I've eaten there a few times and have never been disappointed. Wait staff is excellent too. Would like to see other options for folks who have gluten allergies and for those who prefer vegan dishes. Shouldn't be hard to do that. When you do please advertise.

I brought my mother for dinner. Upon arrival, the restaurant was clean and newly remodeled. The server was polite and courteous. My mother ordered the lasagna combo and I ordered the Ceasar salad. Bread was brought to the table and 15-20 minutes later the lasagna combo and salad arrived. My mother was pleasantly pleased with her meal. I, however, had a horrible salad. There was so much dressing that the romain lettuce was soggy and the dressing wasn't a true Ceasar dressing. There was no hint of anchovie, caper or red/white wine vinegar that you need to balance the sweetness of the other ingredients. I will never be back. Either learn to make the dressing correctly or don't serve it. That simple.

Their cannelloni is wonderful. My husband loves the Stromboli. This is truly authentic food.

My wife and I have eaten pizzas all over the world, including Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and Joe's is the real thing! We have gotten to know the chef, his name is Rocky, and we can say it is the best pizza we have had in the States. You have got to try his Sicilian special pizza - just ask him for it. The food tastes just like it did in Italy! We try to go there every week, at least several times a month.

I have tried pizza from all over the world, including Chicago, New York, Italy, etc. and I can honestly say Joe's has the best fold-over, freshest, most delicious pizza I have ever had. I am a sucker for veggies on my pizza, but you could just get cheese and still be blown away. If you aren't a pizza eater( how that's possible I'll never know) they have great entrees (try the Seafood Combo plate) and subs (Philly Cheese). And the prices are very reasonable. If any restaurant needs to be supported in SWLA this is it!
This is some of the BEST Italian found to be found in the area! The portions are large, and the food is always fresh.
This is the best NY style in the area. Try it, the LC people actually cross DA BRIDGE to eat it! (Really, I've seen them there!)

The pasta dishes are great and the cooks will usually do anything you request. The food is always fresh and almost always done correctly. The sauces could be thicker, but the tastes and texture more than make up for that.
The pizzas and calzones are also great. They serve more of a New York style pizza than a Chicago deep-dish, which is regrettable. But still, it is some great pizza. The toppings, cheese and sauce are fresh and the crust is a great combination of chewy and crunchy. Their calzones again can be filled with whatever you want and the never skimp on the stuffing. You never have to worry about the corners being dry and empty.
The appetizers are good to great. Some of the items can be hit-and-miss, but the stuffed mushrooms in a basil cream sauce are the best I have ever had. And I really don't like fresh mushrooms. Also, my son loves the cheese sticks and the
My favorite thing there is the sandwiches. I have never been to Philly to get a real cheese steak, but the Joe's Cheesesteak is amazing. The onions and bell peppers are cooked down well, the cheese is a good-quality provolone, they have really good banana peppers and the meat is thin, tender and juicy.
II have never been to the Northeast to try to Italian food at its best (outside of Italy anyway) but I can say that Joe's is the best reasonably-priced Italian restaurant I have ever been too.
I mean I have eaten better dishes at a $40-per plate type place, but I have never found a better value for my money than Joe's. My family of six can usually eat a full dinner, with deserts and appetizers, for around $60.
The restaurant is in an old building in the middle of town. The owners have done a good job remodeling it, but it is still lacking a little on the atmosphere. But being a father of three, that's not a really big deal right now. It is just easier to call in and pick up the food than go and try to eat at a sit-down place. The food is better when you can eat it right after it is made, but it still holds up well when you take it out.
I would recommend this place to everyone and I usually do. I am still shocked that a town of this size (less than 50,000 people) and in a part of the country that it is in (the deep south) can get -- and keep a real Italian restaurant.

We were a little nervous going in because there were no people of color in the restaurant and we were getting a lot of stares. Our waitress wasn't too...
