We always get the Joe's house salad and Joe's special pizza. It never fails. It's reasonably priced and unpretentious. If you are going, be prepared for a long wait because it's a popular local spot. The wait is worth it!

Here's what I like about Joes... It's fairly inexpensive. It has some character. The food is good. They give you solid portions. Here's the bad... It gets crowded and at times literally a person is up against your table watching you eat because they're waiting...More

Not a location I would've found on my own, but was taken there by family. Small, but does a booming business. Menu is good, portions are generous and prices are very reasonable. Relaxed atmosphere.

Family dinner for four with clams, mussels, pizza, antipasto and chicken parm. All the dishes were very good and the service was friendly and fast, although the table was crowded with all the food. A fun experience for all.

Walkable from the center of Northampton shops, this is a small and super cute Italian spot. We went at 5:30 on a Monday and it was about a 15 min wait. People coming on later definitely had to wait longer. They open at 4 so...More

I recommend Joe's special pizza; peppers, pepperoni, tomato and cheese pie. The house salad with the creamy house dressing is great. The service is tops. The kitchen was very fast even with a heavy crowd. The Berkshire draft steel rail ale is great and the...More

Joe's has some of the best eats in the area, particularly the pizza. Their pizza is thinner crust but loaded with toppings and the perfect amount of sauce. The interior is cozy with a maze of little rooms here and there and old school ambience....More

Yes and on Monday nights it either $7.99 or $8.99 with bread, a very nice salad and a nice portion of pasta. It's very good.
