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

I've been eating at Joe's Cafe since 1971! It's Northampton's best neighborhood bar, and the food has always been good and the beer - cold. If you don't get a seat by 5-5:30 PM, there's a waiting line most nights. So it helps to be getting older and eating earlier. But, I got diagnosed with heart disease, and my diet... More

I love Joe's. Their marinara sauce is excellent and provides the base for many of their menu choices. Their thin crust pizza is also excellent. Indeed, combined with the ambiance (70 year old murals line the walls), Joe's reminds me of the many small, family-oriented, Italian restaurants I loved back home in NYC. The food is reasonably priced and the... More
