The place itself is not the most attractive, but the food is all homemade! The pasta is incredible as are the sauces. I had the Canolie and it was just perfect...not too sweet or filling after a full plate of food!

Although the cooks are apparently changing, finally the quality of the pasta was 99.9% back to Jim's original. We all had different entrees--delicious. And they were understanding when we accidentally spilled some wine ... that's right. If you call in advance you can bring your...More

Not going to sugar coat. It was ok. Was hoping for a little better. Sauce is very watery. Server seemed to careless if we were here or not. Certainly edible but not great

We decided to try Spaghetti Jim's as we were driving by. So happy we did. The food was delicious, fresh and spiced just right. We had spaghetti and meatballs, chicken Thai noodles and garlic bread. All of the food excellent. Cannoli made fresh daily.
