Joe and Mimas continues to provide excellent pastas, the breads (..particularly, the Focacia) are great with their dipping sauce and then the salad bar is tops. Cap it all off with an excellent bottle of wine and you have a fantastic meal. There is only one thing that could make it better and that would be improved servers and service.... More

This is a fairly good restaurant. I thought it would be better. It has been around awhile, so I think the regulars love it.

Great food and great service. Only location is a drawback. It's hidden in the back side of a string mall. Don't let that fool you. We had really great Italian food here and lots of it.

This is the first time I have ever walked out of a restaurant without ordering anything. We had to wait to be seated for about 20 minutes. After we were seated two waitresses served and maintains several tables nearby. But neither waitress even glanced in our direction. It was like we were invisible. I waited about ten minutes before I... More

Enough said. As a business traveler I greatly appreciate a local restaurant like this. I actually picked up a to go and went back to the hotel. Great meal within expected price point.

Don't let its location fool you. This is the best Italian in Danville! The special is always amazing, but some other favorites include the Ravioli with Mushrooms and Walnuts, the Carbonara Joe & Mimma, the Margherita pizza, the spinach side and the homemade Tiramasu.

I have been eating here for over 30 years. I have never been disappointed. It is not the cookie-cutter Italian franchise restaurant. Great food. Great service.

We were passing through Danville, which is a very charming town and Joe and Momma's was a recommendation of our BnB host. We had a truely wonderful meal with service that reflected the same level of warm hospitality and southern charm. If you have a chance do yourself a favor and eat at this delightful establishment.
