My husband and I live nearby and usually pick up a pizza from Joe's to take home. We decided to eat in because of the spaghetti special the other night. We enjoyed our meal and had a great server, Lauren. She was attentive and provided quick service.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful but the food was rather bland and didn't live up to all of the glowing reports I had heard. In all fairness I had just one of many entrees offered. However I'm not in a great hurry to return. I think that says a lot.

Out first visit, and boy will we be coming back for more! We had the lasagna, salad and tomato basil soup. Everything was so fresh and so delicious. Our waiter Greg was amazing. He made us feel special and went above and beyond. This place is a must to visit. So much better than Olive Garden.

You can't find Italian like this outside of New York and Philly. Everything is exceptional right to the amazing massive cake at the end. Go on a Friday or Saturday night and they have an accordion player. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it truly is amazing!

A friend and I enjoyed a late lunch on Friday afternoon. Even though the restaurant was busy, service by Greg was attentive and professional. As it was our first visit here, we were very happy with Greg's informative manner. We decided to share the Lasagna Bianca and the Manicotti special. We both chose the tomato basil soup instead of salad.... More

My husband and I celebrated my birthday at Joe's Italian tonight. As always, dinner was excellent, and the service provided by Chase was great.

Every time we visit this place we have a good experience. The food is outstanding and the serving staff are super friendly. It's a great place for both a business dinner or just a family meal. They are known by everyone locally for their enormous slices of cake for dessert. Bring your eat'in pants!

Pleasant atmosphere. Extremely family friendly. There was an accordion player performing during our visit. Several large groups were in at the same time. Never felt too packed or too noisy. The staff was friendly as well. The kids ravioli looked good and the little one confirmed it was tasty too! The rest of us shared a large Pizza. Crust was... More

We have eaten there several times - we use to love it. We drive 50 miles to Joe's. However, last 3 or 4 visits, we have not been satisfied with our meals. Meals not as flavorful - once shrimp was not fully cooked. Last night my Chicken Marsala was more like a Chicken Alfredo. We enjoy Cannoli's. From the first... More

I loved it. I am new to Birmingham and have been Constantly disappointed in almost every restaurant I have been to, but not Joes. There were too many kids for my liking, making it far too noisy, but what can you do. The food was good, the music was as well. I have already been back 2 times since my... More
