REVIEWS OF Joe's Pasta House IN New Mexico

Todd Hathorne

Excellent food. Isaiah wad a perfect attendant. The place was pretty sparse for the after church crowd. I think people may be thinking the construction makes it tough to access the place. Not true. I wish Joe would take a look at DH Lacombe to add to the NM wines. Trite phrase but really "Eat at Joe's."

Lisa Martinez

I threw my daughter's baby shower here today! We had just under 30 guests. The service we received was phenomenal! Our waiter had his hands full and never missed a beat! He saw to our every need and was so polite and attentive!! And then there was the food!! Absolutely delicious! Every person told me how great their food was! And so much food you had to take it home. The owner, Joe, made sure we were pleased with everything! I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant! Best Italian food in the state!

Brianna Luna

Love, love, LOVE this place! All the food is great! Its definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in the Rio Rancho and Albuquerque areas.

don sumner

Always a wonderful restaurant to visit and experience! Joe and his staff treat each customer with great service and excellent pasta dishes! Love Joe's!!


Fabulous Italian food. Dinner entrees are superb and do not underestimate the lunch buffet because it is fabulous. Great, warm wait staff.

Tom Klein

Great atmosphere and food. It was exactly what we needed after our mother passed away. Thank you everyone.

brian jacobson

First off I am not a big fan of Italian food but Joe's Pasta House has made me a believer of quality Italian food. This is not some corporate run of the mill place but rather a owner that actually cares to produce quality food. I live on the east side and it is worth the trip to the far west side just to dine here. Staff is friendly, the food is prodigious and this place is the epitome of what every Italian restaurant should strive to be. To Joe and his staff ******KUDOS******

James Weiss

Meh. I was getting the lunch buffet. It's not situated in the best location. Super high foot traffic. I felt as though I was in the way. The real deal breaker came when I was heading towards the Spaghetti and meatball sauce, was cut in front of by a server that dumped meatballs in and then dumped all the meatball water in. Totally watered down the sauce. She was coughing quite hard as well (mentioning it as she was heading over to fill the Spaghetti sauce). When you are handling folks food... stay home if your sick.

Lindsey Williams

Love this place! Staff was incredibly friendly from the time we walked in until we left. For example, our baby dropped a toy on the ground and a passing server stopped and went out of their way to get it for us. The food was absolutely amazing as well. We will definitely be back!

Sarah Gutierrez

This place is amazing! My husband and I have always have great customer service and the food fresh and delicious!

Graham Davis

Very good service and the food on the regular menu is outstanding. I wasn't as impressed with the buffet. If you plan on coming here, I'd recommend ordering off the menu.

Michael Rossi

Always good experience. Joe was one of my competitors in New York. Extremely happy when I found him in New Mexico. I'm sure he doesn't anymore, but boy this guy can cook.

Douglas Carter

Great food and service. Old World style.

Rosie Wainscott

It's a great place for families to enjoy a good meal.

Diego Rodrgiuez

Nice place, great food. Food is better than any Italian chain restaurant could ever attempt to make. Worth the drive and wait!

Lisa Medina

This restaurant is one of my favorite places to eat in the Rio Rancho and Albuquerque area. The food is always tasty and seasoned just right. The staff and owner are always friendly and make you feel welcome. I appreciate that this restaurant is always clean as well as the restrooms and the buffet is always kept supplied with fresh food. I have been eating here for a few years now and I’ve never been disappointed. I was recently present when an inconsiderate lady acted irrational and rude toward the owner. She has posted a negative review for this restaurant, but I was there when she was yelling and cursing at the owner in front of everyone as he was POLITELY explaining why her small children couldn’t stick their hands in the buffet food. The owner, Joe, handled the situation very professionally and I was sad to see how disrespectful some people can be. It’s a shame how some people think this behavior is acceptable. I give this restaurant a big thumbs up and I will always return to enjoy the great food and service that I have enjoyed for the past years.

Frances Talbott

My husband and I went to Joe's Pasta house for a Sunday date night dinner. It had been a while since we had eaten there. The wine and food were absolutely wonderful! The Shimp Scampi appetizer was amazing! We also had the nicest young man serve us, Elijah was his name. Excellent attitude and was really on top of things. When we were asking for a lot in the beginning and I apoligized for being demanding, he grinned and said he was thankful to have a couple of tables to serve (it was the beginning of the dinner crowd). We would highly recommend anyone who wants great Italian food and great service go there!

Michael Venticinque

Joe meet you at the door himself. Friendly great Italian food if I don't make it myself this is where I go. cannolis are the best in town he still uses his grandfather's recipe

Louis Gonzales

Exceptional food and service! Prices are reasonable as well! Italian food at its finest!

Margaret Wallace

Amazing buffet for $10.99! Fresh, delicious variety with great service.

MinHlovey .

Absolutely wonderful! We had a great server who made it pleasant and good food! I got my favorite spaghetti!

Jan B

Service, sauce, sauteed veggies-excellent. We expected freshly made bread, but were disappointed.

Chelsea Oswald

Joe's Pasta House is the best restaurant I've ever been to. The first thing I noticed when entering the building eased the amazing atmosphere, the inside is decorated with beautiful paintings and ivy leaves. Its bright enough to see everything but dark enough to be calming and comfortable. The service was tremendous, even though we were seated in almost a secluded area our waiter was always there when we needed him and had some great suggestions for the menu. Now the best part about this experience by far, was the food. My family loves Italian food so we eat it often but Joe's Pasta House is on another level completely. The flavors melded into each other but were still unique and the meat was so tender. The servings were large but everything tasted so delicious we finished the whole plate. I wish I had saved space for dessert so we could have tried that too. I would definitely suggest this restaurant to anyone considering it.

Joseph Cordova

I am a regular customer at this place. Today I came for their lunch buffet. The food is great quality. They had mussels, and they were very fresh. They were not over cooked. I tried the green chile pork with pasta. It was great, pork was tender and seasoned just right. But by far my favorite is their meatballs. They are not to big. Very tender, and just the right seasoning. For dessert they have freshly baked cookies that are just right. The wait staff is very nice, and attentive. I definitely recommend this restaurant. It is worth a trip to Rio Rancho.

Cruz Ochoa

Nearly 10 years since we've visited Rio Rancho after moving to Texas. Great memories but today we walked in and were offered the buffet before the option stopped in 2 minutes after our arrival for the buffet. After being seated and drink order. I was going to take advantage of the buffet, however our server said it was too late. Later after my family ordered he offered the buffet since two other patrons were still eating from it. I refused to order our eat. Last time I visit. Too bad service was not what it used to be.

Lydia Johnson-Gallegos

My husband and I decided to try Joe's Pasta House. We were pleased with the atmosphere and the food and wine were so good! We will be back. Our server, Tim, was funny and gave great service. We give him a 5 star.

Samantha Giammatteo

Another amazing night at Joe’s. There food never disappoints! One of their specials tonight were sea scallops with risotto and it melted in your mouth. My husband and I love their gnocchi with sausage and meatballs and we always seem to order that as one of our dishes. Desserts also were delicious! Our favorite Italian restaurant!

Igor Louis

Their marinara sauce is unbeatable. Their buffet, as I discovered awhile back, is also pretty damn tasty. The service is always good, they take care of you, and Joe himself is there and stops by to check on you. Also good coffee and a great wine selection.

Christy Ladd

Visiting from Pampa Texas. Was amazing! Fast service and a great atmosphere. Food was great!

Deborah Gebhardt

First time visit, favorite of my brother and his family. Went to celebrate Mother's day. Good time and great food.

rachael landau

Family friendly, attentive servers, satisfying Italian food, a crowded busy popular place. There was a live musician on guitar; his volume was unobtrusive and he enhanced the lively atmosphere. Wine selections were ample; all food portions were ample; the meal was enjoyable across the board; the dessert selections were impressive and satisfied children who begged for the treat after seeing what was offered. Those who are lucky to live nearby have a neighborhood gem.

R E Chasse

Excellent. Great variety, some southwest touches, good wine list and the Caramel Almond Cheesecake was wonderful.

Mathew Esquibel

Great food service and atmosphere.

Tom Albano

Joe's Pasta House catered my brother's funeral reception and did an outstanding job! Great food, plenty of it. Pasta, meats,salad, dressings, bread with butter. Good value, on time delivery... Joe promised great service and that's what we got.... Thank you Joe!

Susan Martinez

Tips for the owner/management: if a customer/someone is looking for a job on the phone you don’t have a rude tone with them and straight up hang up the phone on them. Really liked this place but I will not be coming here and I will be telling my friends/family not to eat here.

Carlos Sanchez

Great food great people Nice Place!

Kevin Klein

Great place for Italian food. We don't live in Rio Rancho but we make the drive out to Joe's because the food is good. They have a wide variety of Italian classics and appetizers. We always leave here full. Joe's also does catering and their pricing is very reasonable. If you like Italian food, defiantly go and give Joe's a try.

michael grande

Always love the service and food. Never have been disappointed

David Sparks

wow what can I say I don't even like Italian food but the food was incredible would definitely go back again and take somebody with me.

Victor Martinez

Amazing pesto. Excellent service.

Rick Morrow

Great green chile chicken alfredo!

Leigh Fifield

Joe's Pasta House is amazing from the wonderful food to the exceptional service. I always feel like family here. For special occasions or the great buffet at lunch, take out meals or delivery, I recommend Joe's Pasta House to all my friends, family, and neighbors. It is truely a Rio Rancho treasure.

Karen Schultz

Joe's Pasta House never disappoints. The food and service is always great! I ordered my favorite lasagna. It is always delicious.

Shannon Corder

Great service, nice environment. Classy but not awkward. They have a couple of green Chile dishes that are very tasty. Was it just the day I was there or has anyone else noticed that all of the waiters were early 20 something year old cute guys? Lol, I think that’s a plus. If I’m ever in Rio Rancho again I’ll definitely come back.

Diana Harris

I always have great food and great service here. Love the eggplant parmigiana.

Steven Knox

Phenomenal food and service!! By far the best Italian restaurant in the state. Joe is a great person and an asset to the community!!

Ben Castillo

Great service and amazing food. Best in NM

Laurie Dean

Love this place. Best Italian in town.

Dan McGoldrick

You want great food? You want great service? This is your place. The seafood dishes are out of this world and I lived in Fort Lauderdale for 11 years. Do yourself a favor and spend an evening here. Don't forget to get yourself some homemade tiramisu for dessert. You won't be disappointed.

Shawn Sever

Excellent service and great food!

Courtney Escalera

We have been going to Joe's Pasta House for several years now. When I explain going, I mean we're going at least 2 times per month. The food is usually always delicious and the only reason I deduct 1 star is due to the excessive wait times sometimes. I see Joe's growing so rapidly that you would think they would have found a way to expand by now to accommodate wait times and minimal wait seating. Other than that, I will keep returning to Joe's for delicious pasta and tasty bread. I've noticed several comments on price but I certainly think the price is worth the service.

Ashley Propps

The service was great and food was amazing

Eric McClintic

Wicked Good! Pesto spaghetti was best I have had.

Michael Garcia

Excellent food, atmosphere, service and entertainment! Our favorite place for a great dinner!

Topaz Pestalozzi-Conley

Local institution in Rio Rancho. Great food, good service, family atmosphere. Love the new sauce.

Stephen Baker

My family and I visited Joe's today. They ordered from the menu and I tried the buffet. Absolutely delicious! Crispy salad, Eggplant Parmesan, Baked Herbed Chicken, Noodles with Marinara Sauce, Vegetable Medley, Bread topped with Pesto and Cheese (exceptional) and Soup were my choices. They had desserts but we ordered a Cheesecake Cone drizzled with Caramel and Chocolate with Berries on the side. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Impeccable service. Has the charm of an Old World Italian Restaurant. Moderately priced. Friendly staff. The best Italian restaurant in Rio Rancho.

damien valdespino

Great service, just ok food .

Daniel T.

Wonderful atmosphere and great food. Will be going again.

M Cooper

Instead of driving all the way to the other side of the city we drove around the corner and enjoyed excellent service, very nice ambiance and most importantly, some of the finest pasta I have had in some time! It was excellent! You really should not miss it!

Garth Chavez

Thank you to Joe and his staff. Very busy night but food came out great and was awesome as always. Will always recommend Joe's ....

Randal W

Very good food. We arrived near closing time with 11 people and they made a table for us. Very accommodating!

Kara Tirone

The staff is always friendly and welcoming.

Rachel Davis

Ziti Florentine with shrimp. Came out with a watery soup in the bottom and mushrooms that were still crunchy, almost raw. I had to go to the bathroom and vomit. Not sure if I had the wrong idea, but isn’t Florentine usually a creamy sauce? Lost my appetite - guy who really nicely chased us out into the parking lot with the food I didn’t take, I would have loved to have it remade however I just wanted to go home and try to salvage the rest of our date night. Hopefully you have a better dining experience than I did.

Lezlee Oxton

Intimate dining, awesome food and fantastic service. This was a bit out of our way but since worth it!! Thanks to Larry's list we took a chance and went for an early Sunday dinner. So happy we did. Try the Southwest chicken Alfredo, so yummy. Staff is friendly and accommodating.


Amazing food and service. Best crab cakes. Relaxed and played back, total dining experience. Wait staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about all of the dishes and what wines pair well with each. Atmosphere is very comfortable and you never feel rushed.

Ruth Flowers

Food was excellent! Our server Josh was the best! Definitely coming back

Mary Lowe

Joe's bruschetta is flat out heavenly! I'm never dissapointed when we visit here. One of the best places to eat. I love this place!

Len Rivera

Excellent lunch buffet! Joe's is a local Rio Rancho favorite. The lunch buffet is always a good bet. The eggplant parmigiana and homemade meatballs are my personal favorites. The wait staff is friendly and always on point!

James Long

Great food and service. Whether it's eating in or take out.

Teresita Maldonado


Brad Blackford

"Delicious food! Terrific service. Our waiter made us feel like we were the only ones in a packed restaurant on a Saturday night". This is my previous review. You had responded back asking for our waiters name, but I don't know how to reply to your comment, so I'll just write another review. I cant remember his name but it was Saturday night August 11th around 6:30pm. He was a tall, thin build man with a bubbly and accommodating personality, I'm guessing he was in his early 40's. He was the best waiter I've ever had. He was very sweet to our 1 1/2 year old son. We just wanted to say thank you and we will definitely be returning.

Dorothy Custer

Food and staff are always great. Service is excellent

MJ Bischel

Love this place. Food and service are always fantastic.

Randall Minghelli

Seemed like everything was premade. We have eaten there a number of times previously. The food quality seems to have dipped

Adam White

We are from out of town visiting family and they told us to go here. Definitely do not regret it. Service was fantastic and the food was terrific! Wish we had this place was back in Ohio!

Yvonne Varela

It was my family first time coming to Joe's Pasta House. From the time Joe greeted us until the end of our meal everything was wonderful. The food is amazing. Truly the best Italian Restaurant that I have been to in a long time. We had the fried zucchini to start which was perfectly prepared. And I had the Romano Crusted Salmon it was amazing! And the dessert was magnificent. Thank You so much for a wonderful meal. My family will definitely be returning to your restaurant.

Sharon McKim Walker

As a family, we don’t eat out in restaurants much any more - my five year old grandson is autistic. It was his mom’s birthday. And thanks to your compassionate and professional staff, we were able to get him settled and give her a nice evening with her boys. Andrea, our waitress, was over the top ahead of his needs and made our dinner delightful, adding a little candle to Mom’s birthday dessert so the boys could sing to her. Thank you all for making our evening special.

Margaret Henderson

Great food, great service, very friendly staff. Can't wait to go back and try other items!

Francisco Cordova

This place was delicous new family spot. The bread and salad was delicous my meal was the best.

The Orange

Pretty place - Variety buffet, but it ends early at 2 - Food is almost as good as Luigi’s on 4th

Aquamdax Daes

Great tastes, exquisite atmosphere, Joe is so personable

Jazmeen Montoya

Best food I’ve had in a very long time!! Definitely hands down good food. We went last night, we walked in and joe was the one who greeted us. Our waiter was so good, he was very fast and never left our drinks empty. I loved that the bathroom had a changing table in it and the restaurant was very nice. We got the spaghetti with meatballs and sausage as well as shrimp fettuccine Alfredo. Wish I could have got dessert but we got stuffed pretty fast. I would definitely recommend this place and we will be coming back.

Manuel Holstrom

Went for a birthday dinner. The food was so good! We had the best service. The fried meatball appitzer was amazing!!! Will definitely go back. Highly recommend.

John K

All service staff were wonderful. The food is exceptional, the house dressing on the salad is a joy to the taste buds. Pasta was of excellent quality.

Jayce U

Got the green chili chicken Alfredo. Amazing. Cesar salad was good too. Gf got the linguine with clams. Loved it. Server was good. Had live music. Classic style or something guitar player. Very nice. Would reccomend for a family evening. Or a lovely date. Thanks Joe's!

Isaiah Brown

After 10 years the place looked and felt wonderful. Our server Tony was not so great. Check with management before denying a customer something that was offered at the door.

Norma Hawkins

We just moved to Rio Rancho from New Jersey where there are many Italian restaurants owned and run by first or second generation Italian Americans. We love Mexican food but once in a while crave Italian. Two people recommended Joe’s Pasta House so we tried it. We were pleased! There is an extensive menu with just about every dish offered with s choice of protein and a choice of sauce, it may take you a while to decide. Meanwhile, munch on the good bread with excellent bruschetta salsa that will appear on your table. The service could not possibly have been more efficient or courteous, The portion size is very generous. I got two meals out of my leftovers.

Valerie McCoy

This place is the bomb. Had the greatest service and yummiest pasta in town. Leagues ahead of any other pasta places. Had the pasta primavera with shrimp and added green Chile.

wayne reese

This place always brings a good feeling to me before I even get in the door. Great host and service. The Italian food has always been very satisfying, and worth taking home. Joe's has done a great job, it's worth the trip you will be back.

Don Garcia

It is the best place for Italian food. The service was beyond great. I Will definitely return soon!!

Bre Lum

Oh my goodness! If you have not eaten here yet, then it is time to stop whatever else you are planning and go now. We picked it on a whim and pretty much fell in love. My husband and I ordered the strumbocci or whatever it was called. It was amazing. I will add a photo, but it was so good, I ate half of it before getting a photo. I might have even asked the waitress to box up my extra sauce to go home and put on other noodles. The desserts where fantastic. Beautifully presented and delicious tasting. The bread at the beginning was homemade and came with a tomato bruschetta mixture to put on it, so yummy! Lastly, I really appreciated that everyone we interacted with seemed really happy to be working here. It was great customer service.

Dwain Kindelberger

Always excellent... The Finest Italian Restaurant for food and atmosphere in Rio Rancho and on the Albuquerque Westside!

Alexandria R

The service is really kind and the wine is good.

Patricia Anglada

Had a wonderful time enjoying dinner with family. The food was excellent. Bruschetta was yummy and the service was exceptional. Faith, our waitress was outstanding and very attentive. All the staff made us feel welcome. If you ate looking for tasty Italian food, this is the place to go.

J Martinez

Joe's is the best Italian food around. We refuse to go to Olive garden because of bad food and bad service. The service at Joe's is usually pretty good especially if Joe is there keeping an eye on things.

Brian C

You can eat as much as you want of some good Italian cooking

Jillian Dose

I went here with my husband and 6 children after a trip to elevate. They were not willing to accommodate space for our stroller and we felt more like they didn’t want us and our young kids in their establishment. Needless to say we left.

Mars Hall

Literally one of the best Italian restaurants in the Albuquerque metro area. Certainly the best in the Rio Rancho. Lovely, warm atmosphere and great service every time. Great for a casual meal for the family or dressed up to impress a date.

Patrick Schierstein

I love their green chile chicken ravioli

Nadine Maes

Love Joe's Pasta House! Joe catered our son's graduation party and everyone loved it! The best eggplant Parmesan around.

mark sanders

Great place/food and people.

Jessica Sandoval

Excellent food! We were throwing our twin boys a graduation party and they requested Italian food. We decided to order Joe’s Pasta House and it was the best decision we made! My husband and I went and had lunch one day to get a better idea of what to order. That was a pleasant experience. We told our waitress what we were doing and she went above and beyond to make sure all of our questions were answered. We were able to place an order with confidence that we were getting everything we needed to host a great party. All of our guests were very impressed with the food. They had seconds and some had thirds. We received several texts asking us again where we got the food from and feedback from our guest that it was amazing! Joe’s Pasta house is always good. Everything is fresh, and tastes wonderful. Thank you Joe’s Pasta House for everything!

David Kane

Great place. Service.

Cap'n Ridiculous Witts

Been coming to Joe's for 4 years now, they even catered our wedding. The staff including joe himself, are all amazing and the food is always amazing.

Noe Duarte

The green Chile Fettuccine is the best, especially with shrimp! Also the linguine with clams in white sauce is great, just ask for no onions if you prefer. Otherwise it comes with lots.

Celine Reyes

A little taste of heaven! Staff was amazing and attention to detail was our favorite!

Lewis Bejcek

Went on Father's Day for lunch. The only place we went to where everyone wished me a Happy Fathers Day. The oven fresh bread with oil to snack on is the best! We must have eaten 5 slices per person! It was so good! The food was delicious and the atmosphere was delightful. Our waiter was the best. On top of refills and clearing plates and just all around pleasant to talk with. Hope to be back again soon!

Jose Sainz

Very delicious! Outstanding services! I will return again and again and again for more.

Vanessa Coriz

Fantastic food! Great staff and so very family friendly which is major for this family of 7! Always reccomend to everyone I know.

Ellen Santistevan

The food is very delicious, well prepared, and fresh. The wait staff is friendly and very attentive. I love that the restaurant is fairly quiet even when it's full so that you can have a conversation with your dining companion and not struggle to hear. It's a little bit expensive (for me) but a lovely treat.

Angie Gomez

The server was ok.... He was new!!! 1st time here!!! We were here with a group of 14!!!! The food was good but the price NOT!!! EXPENSIVE for what we got!! I don't think we will be back...

Jovani Leon

Only me second time there. Great food and great service. Food was amazing and fresh. I had the Ziti Florentina with Chicken. Very juicy chicken, the vegetables were fresh. Will definitely be going back

Stephen Fehnel

Food was awesome, staff was great. I highly recommend the Green Chili Chicken Ravioli.

CJ Sweet

Ordered the Greek salad....8$ for a bad salad. Couldn't remember why I stopped coming I remembered

Violet Miera

Great food excellent service.

Christine Rivera

Love their family style To-go options. Always a loyal customer.

Andy Garcia

best place to have a nice anniversary dinner

M Foster

Some of the best Italian food in Albuquerque! Absolutely the best in Rio Rancho. Fantastic service, cozy atmosphere, and a great place to bring a romantic date or a have a casual family meal.

matthew lewis

Totally unassuming place. Excellent Italian food! Great tasting food! Can't say it enough. If you are in the mood for some spaghetti or something Italian, come here!

Vito Monteleon

A fine, old-school, neighborhood Italian restaurant, and more than that description suggests. The atmosphere, menu, service, and food quality are all excellent. The wine list is good and the desserts are authentic. Clearly, this is a well-managed restaurant and a fine addition to the extensive choices in the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho region. Give Joe's a visit; you won't be disappointed.

Jonathan Miller

Excellent dinner. Creative interpretations of Italian classics. Relaxed atmosphere.

Innovation Tree Specialist

The food was hot, and came out quickly. We passed on the lunch buffet because it looked uninviting. We ordered lasagna and fettuccini alfredo. The lasagna was hot and brought out quickly which tells me it isn't made on order. More like warmed up to order. The alfredo pasta was a little undercooked and the sauce was bland. Prego has a better flavor. It was really dark inside and when we opened the blind behind our booth they told us to close it. The staff was not very friendly or welcoming. But maybe the dinner time is better. Between Joe's and olive gardens pre packaged. I say go for olive garden. And we are normally big supporters of local.

Carlisle Office Suites

Most Authentic Food.Kind Servers.Joe is A True Host.

Christine Resendez

It was our first time there and it was delicious! Our waitress server #2 was awesome and very helpful with the menu

Ramon Briceño

Nice place. Big plates, good food

I love this place. Staff is so friendly.

This is the best Italian resturant we have found in Alburquerque.

Mario Galego

The food is outstanding. The service is prompt and friendly. The atmosphere is warm, relaxing, and romantic. I will be a regular customer from now on.

Alexis Burton

The utmost best service and Italian in New Mexico!!!! A new regular restaurant for my boyfriend and I. Thank you guys! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Matt Barnes

This is the best, most authentic Italian food in the area. I prefer ordering from the menu for dinner but the lunch buffet offers incredible value and variety as well. The take out buckets are fantastic for quick meals and feed many in the event you have unexpected company to your home. I really enjoy the southwestern fettuccine Alfredo for a local spin. Definitely consider this place for a great dining experience.

Stephanie Jose

So delicious! I will definitely be back. The eggplant and fettuccini were amazing

Dominick Fanelli

It's truly the only decent NY style place within 500 miles! Great service, and wonderful food!


The cater out was very good. Our guests were very impressed. Thank you!

Edward Steinmetz

They do it Best Love the food & Everybody's really nice

Doby Pilgrim

The food was overall exceptionally good. The service was absolutely spectacular. This is a really good restaurant, folks. Our waiter Elijah was one of the best I have ever had - and I have eaten at some really famous places. I HIGHLY recommend their mussels by the way. Some of the best I have ever eaten. Thanks for a very nice meal and an extremely pleasant dining experience!

Jon Steen

What a wonderful place to eat! Service was spectacular, food was incredible, and ambience was excellent! Highly recommend!


Best italian in the area. Havent even considered olive garden since the first time i came here

Tom Scott

The food here is absolutely incredible. Some of the best Italian food I've had, probably the best in Albuquerque. The portions are huge, so you'll most likely end up taking home leftovers.

Xiaohan Wang

Fresh seafood and the pasta is delicious. I will recommend the meatball sausage pasta here.

Stacey Williams

Everything I've ever had at Joe's has been delicious! Today we picked up their take-out "Big Bucket" family size meal, which is *always* a winner - we usually get the spaghetti and meatballs option but there's a few other choices like an Alfredo, etc. It's literally a bucket (same size as a bucket of fried chicken - huge!) full of delicious, fresh, spaghetti and meatballs - I *mean* delicious - then a second bucket (same size) of salad that's always super fresh (romaine, I think, with sliced cucumber and cherry tomatoes), and a full loaf of French bread. Comes with plenty of parm, Italian dressing, and homemade Ranch (mmm, the *good* Ranch). I know I've totally overused the word "delicious", but it's just the best word for all of it! Also, this is my go-to whenever I want to bring a meal to someone, like a family with a new baby, that kind of thing. It is always a hit! {Once I brought it to a family of 7 with a new baby, alllll boys except mama, and it fed their entire family TWICE! I told ya it was huge...and did I mention delicious?}

Victoria Duque

Today I visited this place for the first time. It’s a nice group of people, food is very homey, atmosphere is great, everybody is kind and Joe was really nice and welcoming, he treats his restaurant as his own house (I can tell!) I wanted to share that I experienced twice in my short 2 hour visit how kind the staff is with seniors!!! They go above and beyond, I saw a waiter taking a senior customer to her car by offering her his arm and walking slowly with her to the car. They call the customers by their names with a humongous smile (like they are family) and what can I say!?!? I’m coming back!!!! Nice nice nice!!!!

It is the best Italian food in Albuquerque. And even the non Italian food they offer is awesome.

Excellent food and service. I had the chicken parmesan with spaghetti. The chicken was moist and delicious, good portions too. The server was excellent. It was a comfortable quiet atmosphere. I was able to talk to and hear the people sitting at my table, I like that.
