The first thing you notice is the place is clean. I went on a recommendation from a friend. I'm glad I did. The food is delicious. I had the fried raviolis for an appetizer. They were served quickly. The bread that was brought out was hot and very tasty. I had the pasta sampler that consisted of fettuccine alfredo, lasagna, manicotti, and meat raviolis. For dessert I had a cannoli. My meal was delicious and I was full when I finished. My waiter Will was very attentive. He made sure my glass of tea stayed full. He checked on my to make sure I didn't need anything. If your looking for a nice family owned restaurant this is the place to eat.

I had the lasagna and salad. it was awesome. couldn't have been better. the bread they serve could have a little more bite to it, but that's a small complaint. very fresh salad. lots of nice cheese and meat in lasagna. not bad prices.

Review №3

Joe's lived up to or beat most expectations that we had. The location is slightly unassuming, though the signage does catch your attention. We drove over from out motel, hoping it was part of the Joe's Italian in Springdale (which is amazing) be honest, I am not 100% sure if it is.Walking in the place is kind of reminiscent of a Fazzolis, slightly "fast food ordered at the table" vibe, though the facilities did seem clean. We were seated quickly and they were doing social distance seating. The host and our server were pleasant.We started with the mozzarella sticks, rolls and a salad. The mozzarella sticks and rolls make me think they are related to the Springdale Joe's Italian because they were great. Definitely among the best of both that I have ever had, and the marinara is very good. The salad was as expected, though a little wet, like maybe it had just been rinsed. Nothing bad, but a little off.I had the Chicken-parm Cremera which was pretty good. Not the best I have had (that belongs to the Springdale location) but was definitely very good. My wife had tortellini and marinara, which was mainly driven by a desire to have more of their marinara, and was pretty happy with what she got.Overall I give four . Definitely worth the drive across town, and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Our waitress did an amazing job. Our food was delicious and plentiful. And they staff was doing a great job keeping everything clean and sanitized.

Review №5

Im sure the food will be delicious, although most certainly would have been better if the waitress i tipped for putting my order together had thrown in silverware. but instead I'm walking all over this hotel hoping to find a plastic fork for my Alfredo. no napkins either.geez, she was so proud of the pizza box she had put our food in... i would have preferred a bag and some silverware, just FYI.but again. my problem won't be the food.

Review №6

Great food and great service! I had the pasta trio with salad and bread. It was amazing!!!

Review №7

This place is wonderful. Dora provided excellent service. I highly recommend!

Review №8

The food was fresh and very filling .we had a wonderful waiter . Seated and fed quickly but not rushed.

Review №9

Love their pesto and bread! I had the shrimp fettuccini and cheese tortellini with alfredo sauce. It was perfect. I absolutely love their alfredo sauce!

Review №10

Working in the area and stopped for pizza. Amazing very good. Enjoyed my pizza. Thanks for the information and map.

Review №11

We ordered pizza, salad, and chicken parmesan. It was all delicious! The rolls melt in your mouth!

Review №12

My coworker and I eat lunch at Joe's at least once a week. My favorite dish is their Chicken Arabiata. If you like it spicy (and I do)....this is the dish for you. The Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo is also a favorite of mine and the size of the shrimp you get in this dish is impressive. The complimentary bread is always fresh and delish. The wait staff is always friendly and professional. They also have an outisde area that is fantastic. If you haven't tried Joe's Italian then you are missing out.

Review №13

This is by far some of the best pasta i have eaten in a while next time I'll try the pizza

Review №14

Good food I personally don't love there fettuccine Alfredo to much of one flavor. But there pizza is really good, there bread is amazing!! There tortellini Alfredo is great. They Always have friendly, helpful staff. I really enjoy going there

Review №15

My husband and I were not impressed at all. I ordered shrimp scampi for a $15.99 plate I had 5 shrimp on a small plate of linguine. Very over priced for amount served!!Husband ordered a $8 slice of pizza that taste like a frozen pizza was served to him. A $5 take n bake pizza is far superior to what should've been a restaurant quality pizza slice. Absolutely horrible.If you have great taste and want something special for you money you earn please don't waste it here!!Terrible for the price. Owner doesn't care if your not happy with his food

Review №16

The whole family loved Joe's! And for me personally, I had the best lasagna I have ever had! Sorry mom!

Review №17

Best authentic family-owned Italian cuisine in NW Arkansas!! Not sure which delicious dish to order? Try the Italian Sampler, with small portions of several specialties. All orders come with fresh, warm homemade Italian bread. There's also a varied wine, beer and ale list (besides non-alcoholic choices) to complement your meal, and the prices, staff and dining atmosphere are family friendly.

Review №18

The bread was amazing! The service was good.

Review №19

Really good food! I personally don't like tomatoes and they have a menu that works around that with a variety of different likes/dislikes. The staff the day I went didn't seem particularly happy, but were tentative and nice to an extent, but who wants to work on a Sunday before labor day?

Review №20

Pizza is the best in Fort Smith. Plus all of other dishes are delicious.

Review №21

Good service, decent prices.

Review №22

My sister in law and I decided to try this place since it was new to us..horrible experience! Our server was not very friendly, I had to ask for my salad to be brought to the table bcuz she forgot it. And I got it half way through our meal, we ordered shrimp Napoli as an appetizer and it literally smelled like canned dog food with warm lemon juice..i absolutely love seafood but the food had a not so good fishy taste to it, definitly not worth the money we spent..if service had been better I would probably have left a better review bit our server came off as she had better things to do than do her job. Won't be going back

Review №23

This has become a staple of our visits to Fort Smith. The pizzas are outstanding, 3 of us enjoyed one large, and still brought home leftovers. And the bread....oh it is awesome by itself.

Review №24

My wife and I have eaten here every Valentine's for about 5 years, and several other days. The past 3 years or so we've been getting it to go, just to beat the crowd and get drunk at home.Lovely staff as always. Delicious food. My wife claims Joe's has the best tiramisu. The new location looks awfully swanky.

Review №25

Excellent Food and service. Everyone was so pleased with their orders.

Review №26

Live music tonight and delicious bread and fettuccini alfredo

Review №27

Some of the best Italian food I've ever had! I was worried about trying the place cause there were only a couple cars outside when we went, but I think that's just due to this place not being well known.All of the food was delicious. The pasta was cooked perfectly with a nice sauce and tender chicken, and the bread was to die for. And it is nice to experience that small restaurant feel.Highly recommended.

Review №28

Ordered fried calamari and it was really bland and also chewy. Also had the seafood pasta, the pasta was plain and the calamari was chewy as well. The sauce was very liquidy and didnt have much flavor as well.

Review №29

The service was bad. Waitress took our bread for no reason and didnt bring any back. Didnt hardly get and service at all. Not not go back.

Review №30

The best Italian food in the river valley with one MAJOR caveat: the only time we ordered food for pick-up, it was a disaster. Otherwise, the rolls and delicious dipping vinaigrette are always a fantastic prelude to excellent food.The pick up order: 2 of the 4 entrees were just the complete wrong dish, and the vegetarian in our party had to eat someone else's spinach roll. We requested rolls and the delicious balsamic oil, but we got one roll each and no dipping sauce. Very disappointing.

Review №31

Yummy food! The menu has a large variety! Large portions, definitely will be able to take some home for later. Endless bread. Better than olive garden!

Review №32

Absolutely delicious, and consistently delicious! They offer several good wines, and beer. I have tried just about everything on the menu, and I have never been disappointed. The prices are low to moderate, so it is very affordable for anyone on "date night"!

Review №33

Love Joe's, really amazing authentic Italian food, good service at a good price. New location is nice.

Review №34

The ultimate dining experience where you can feel fancy without looking part. Tried the stromboli this time and it will be my new regular. Fantastic food. Great wait staff.

Review №35

We had the Tortellini Siciliano and Shrimp Amor. Both were excellent. Very friendly people here. Definitely recommend!

Review №36

Excellent bread & homemade pesto. I thought my dish was overpriced, due to of the lack of scallops and shrimp. However, the Alfredo sauce was some of the best I've tasted. They did offer some real reasonable lunch specials that came with the great & a salad. I would go back.

Review №37

The food is delicious!

Review №38

Good food good service

Review №39

Alfredo sauce was Amazing!!

Review №40

New building, new look! Still needs improvements! Food is excellent as always, however avoid the past trio sampler. Its the same pasta, same sauce and comes all together on one plate. Presentationis terrible. It had 1 raviloi, 1 sliver of lasagna & 1 noodle of manicotti. Just pick 1 and go with it the three together isnt good. Service is still terrible & needs a lot of improvement. And the major complaint is you have 1 bathroom for women. Women go to the bathroom more often and we like to wash our hands , etc so 1 stall doesnt work in a restaurant! At least it wasnt a unisex bathroom!!Took a friend for lunch. Hadnt seen her in a while so we got caught up. The server kept rushing us then threw the ticket on the table with an attitude. The place wasnt busy and there was no wait so why she needed this table empty is beyond me. She seemed irritated when we asked for 1 lunch item to split. My friend had a large breakfast so she wasnt very hungry...she ate the salad and a few bites of the entree. She came to see me. The server didnt bring out bread nor did she ask to refill drinks once the meal was dropped off. I had to ask another server for assistance in refilling these items. She was very nice and i wish i could have given her the tip.So if you want good food...they make great food. But service is terrible. Id suggest take out.

Review №41

Food was definitely good and service was decent. Although, the ranch or marinara costs up to $2.50 per side... Isn't ranch and marinara usually free at other restaurants? Unnecessary pricing. Overall pretty good place.

Review №42

Favorite Italian place in the whole area! The pasta is amazing! The Alfredo sauce is the best! Everything I have ever ordered here is delicious and the service is excellent! Love this place.

Review №43

Shockingly good Italian that's one of the Fort's best kept secrets. I always get the stromboli and the bread is great.The last time we came here, my wife and I had an amazing server. I forgot her name (started with an S) but she is hands down one of the best servers we've ever had.

Review №44

It had great food and a great atmosphere. Also had great service. I got the Chicken Parmigiana, and it was tasty.

Review №45

Delicious as usual!

Review №46

Very relaxing atmosphere. The food was great. The staff were polite and attentive.

Review №47

The food here is Amazing! Definitely my favorite restaurant in Fort Smith. I definitely recommend the Alfredo pizza. My husband loves it too but adds chicken. I could eat the whole thing by myself it is so good! The atmosphere is very nice, clean place, and the music just sets the tone for a great time. The staff is always great too!

Review №48

The food is delicious. Staff is always friendly. And the environment is relaxed and comfortable, but has a nice atmosphere for a dinner date.

Review №49

Taste is unmatched for Italian food in Fort Smith and the portion sizes are hearty. The wait staff is generally pleasant and the food orders come come out quickly. The lighting is low enough so as not to blind anyone but bright enough to see all the details of the rustic setting. The music is a mix of contemporary and classic Italian sounds (for example yesterday I heard 'o Sole Mio) and played at an appropriately soft yet audible volume making this an ideal place to take someone for a business lunch, a date, or being with a group of friends. Joe himself makes his way about the restaurant to speak with guests. He is around long enough to say hello and talk about the food, the service, and catch up but is never bothersome and has a keen sense of timing. This is the perfect place for both a quick bite to eat and a longer meal with a big party. The dining area is spacious such that you won't have to worry about disrupting someone else's experience no matter your party size. I cannot say enough great things about Joe's!!

Review №50

Just go. You'll love it. Or not. But I'm going back.

Review №51

Love the new location. Same great food.

Review №52

The food is delicious. Staff is always friendly. And the environment is relaxed and comfortable, but has a nice atmosphere for a dinner date.

Review №53

This place has all around good Italian food. Love love the bread and olive oil!! Haven't tried a thing here I didn't like but definitely recommend the Chef's Special! Only 4 out of 5 because I gain 5 lbs every time I am here.

Review №54

Amazing Food. Actually an Italian restaurant with Great Service and Wonderful People

Review №55

The food is fantastic and the staff is always friendly

Review №56

Better than the other Italian options in town that I have tried

Review №57

Great atmosphere and amazing food.

Review №58

So authentic and delicious. Great service to boot

Review №59

Food was pretty good. Service was ok. I went to pay my bill which was $49.45. I handed her what I thought was $50. She told me I owed her another dollar so I gave it to her. I watched her count $56 and put it in the drawer. Turns out I gave her $55 initially and ended up paying $56. I left a tip at the table prior to paying. I wont be going back.

Review №60

If I could give this zero Stars I would. I orderedchicken parmesan and spaghetti and my daughter ordered chicken alfredo with broccoli. The chicken was obviously frozen and had a spongy texture. The sauce on the spaghetti was canned. The chicken alfredo had 6 tiny pieces of broccoli. When I brought this to the attention of the person who was either the manager or the owner , he did not care about our experience. He said lots of other people like the food. When I tried to explain to him about the food he said "Yeah, I was already told." He further stated there were lots of other customers and we did not matter. He was very belligerent. This was a colossal waste of over $30 when you add in the tip. It is best that anybody looking for Italian food go elsewhere. I wouldn't feed this to my dogs. Olive Garden is better than this place. Even if the food was good ,the management / owners don't care about the customer's experience.

Review №61

Very good pizza & pasta! Great atmosphere. Love taking our son & daughter-in-law there.

Review №62

Joe's was great. It has been a while since we have been there but it was just as good this time as it was before; especially their special/supreme pizza slice. A single slice was the size of the plate it was on.They get a big AttaBoy from me.

Review №63

Quick seating even though they were very busy on a Saturday night. Good food, good drinks and a somewhat great service. I understand that when a restaurant is as busy as they were, service is going to decline and it happened but they did compensate for the inconveniences. Great job!

Review №64

I had chicken masala for a Sat lunch. The mushrooms are not fresh, but canned mushrooms. If I have a $12 lunch, the food should be fresh. Flavor good but if I can make it at home, and it tastes the same here, and I am not a good cook, it gets 3 stars. A nothing special place. Just OK.

Review №65

Great food and attentive staff!

Review №66

Enjoyed the Salmon Piccata, was very fresh and tasted wonderful . The server Dora was an absolute treat, so sweet, kind and caring. The hot bread with vinegar and oil was also wonderful . The shrimp Alfredo was also wonderful . Do miss their lasagna the way it used to be more deep dish- it's not as good as it once was.

Review №67

The food is goodBut very pricey

Review №68

The flavors were alright, but the pasta was drowned in alfredo sauce.

Review №69

The chicken parmesan was great, much like everything else I've ever tried here.

Review №70

To start, you'll get some awesome bread with delicious dip. Keeps on coming, but don't fill up too quick! Save some room for their hot and fresh pizza, calzones, or any of their other choices. You can't go wrong! Ask about specials and recommendations. Might need a to go box, but it makes for great leftovers.

Review №71

First time there. The food and service was excellent. We will return.

Review №72

Great Italian food. Friendly abd prompt service.

Review №77

This place has great food. The service is warm and friendly. The servers seem knowledgeable about the menu and are eager to answer any questions.Their sauces aee all made drom scratch in thw restaurant, rhe few dishes I have has so far greatly exceeded my expectations.The average menu lri e is around 12 smackers.This placehas a great parking, is easy tomdind and get to, and isnt too far away from tje downtown Ft.Smirh area.(If I were a chimp, I'd give this joint 4 thumbs up.)

Review №78

Over priced for what you get in my opinion

Review №79

It was delish. The bread and oil was fabulous . Everyone's dish was served hot fresh and every bit as good as expected. Thank you for the great night.

Review №80

We were on vacation from N.C. and were looking for a place to have dinner. We happened to stumble on Joe's, and we were so glad we did! The building is simple, but very clean. The food was some of the best Italian my husband and I have ever eaten!! The staff were great, and very friendly!! Highly recommended if you're in Fort Smith!!

Review №81

I ALWAYS get the seafood pasta and it is DELICIOUS! They have good service, too.

Review №82

Review №84

Fantastic, food, service and for a swim meet we'll probably eat here every night

Review №85

We really like Joe's. They have all sorts of Italian foods. The service is always good and the place is clean. Try the pizza, you won't be disappointed.

Review №86

The service here was good. Our waitress was friendly after we made an effort to involve her in our selection. The food we would rate just good but the bread was great.

Review №87

I liked the food. Ordered spaghetti meatball and it tasted better and more authentic than the cheesy Olive Garden.

Review №88

I love their pizza! Its the closest thing to New York pizza around here and i really miss NY pizza. Everything is really delicious here and the owner is super friendly. He takes time to come out and talk to his customers. It's a lovey place to dine in Fort Smith!

Review №89

Pretty damn good. Great service

Review №90

Great food great service!

Review №91

The food was good but we were told by the waitress we couldn't have bread until we ordered. Then after we got our food we didn't see her again. The owner Joe had to come get us our refills. Need better service and it would've been a better experience.

Review №92

The bread is amazing! We look forward to it with their dipping sauce every time we go. Homemade pastas, good sauces and attentive staff. Overall a very nice experience

Review №93

The fried mozzarella is really good

Review №94

Omg. Their food, prices, and atmosphere are all amazing. Will definitely be going here again. So glad I found this place!

Review №95

Great food, great service!

Review №96

The spaghetti with marinara was really good. The bread is amazing. Will definitely go back.

Review №97

The bread and lasagna are great!

Review №98

We were in town for our great nieces high school graduation. We tried Joe's on a recommendation from our great nephew. It was awesome. I highly recommend the salmon piccata. And the bread was out of this world.

Review №99

STROMBOLI... YOU'VE GOT TO TRY IT! We have frequently visited Joe's and have never had a bad experience. The staff is pleasent and professional. The food is on par with the price. The atmosphere is borderline romantic!Exit, explore, experience, and enjoy!
