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 I think the earlier the better if you don't want to wait. The servers were... 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 100 proof Allen's ginger flavored brandy makes for a great desert. There is ample free... 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. The place is largely unchanged in the 30+ years I've been visiting and that is... More

Decided to give joes a try and we were not disappointed. This is a no frills kind of place and if you are in the mood for old school Italian food this is the place. Everything we had was great

Everybody in Northampton knows Joe's, probably the only Italian restaurant in the world with a sombrero on its neon sign and "Mexican" murals that date from the 1950's or before. Happy atmosphere, good pizza, great draft beer (Berkshire Brewing Company - BBC Steel Rail Ale my favorite.) Service very pleasant, natural, efficient. Truly excellent veggie pizza, but the others are... More

I'd actually give Joe's Cafe a 4.5. My husband and I shared a large Joe's specialty pizza. I picked off the green peppers and my husband picked off the onions and we both enjoyed our meals. He also had a salad that looked great--fresh and large--and I had a cannoli for dessert which was delicious. The place was crowded when... More
