Located in Ithaca, New York, Joe's Restaurant has been a local favorite since 1932.

Founded by the Polio family in the 1930s, managed by the Yengo family for over three decades, later purchased by Mark Campagnolo in the 1980s, and now owned by Jamie Ciaschi since 2005, Joe's has thrived in the community since inception.  Joe's was the very first restaurant in Ithaca to have a commercial pizza oven. 

Rooted in classic Italian style, Joe's was transformed in the 1980s to reflect the then-popular Miami Vice theme.  Joe's was revitalized in 2005 when the current owner, Jamie Ciaschi, purchased and renovated the dilapidated property, providing a more modern and upscale atmosphere.  Additional renovations took place in 2015, giving customers a new and inviting look and feel to their dining experience.  Whether you're coming in for a casual dinner or happy hour, or a more formal occasion, Joe's is the place to be.

Joe's currently offers a wide variety of delicious appetizers, traditional Italian dinners, pizza and desserts, all with a Tuscan flare.  We offer a full bar with a large selection of wine, beer and spirits.  All appetizers are always half price in the bar area! We guarantee to have something for everyone, and vegetarian dishes are available!

There's plenty of free parking too!

Hosting a get together or type of special occasion?  Let Joe's bring the party to you!  We offer a variety of catering services to meet any need.  Call us at 607-256-3463 for more information.

Just a few of the recent comments we've received from our customers...

From TripAdvisor, February 2016 - ...it was a really nice, laid back atmosphere and a delicious lunch- I had the bomber pizza and it was divine.

From Yelp, October 2015 - ...Service was friendly and food was good.

From Facebook, October 2015 - Good food, good service!

From TripAdvisor, September 2015 - My wife and I were in town for our 30th wedding anniversary and wanted Italian. This was the only restaurant that had an menu that we felt offered that. I had the Seafood Diavlo and she had the Chicken Marsala, pasta il dente, both fantastic. The prices were more than reasonable and the service was friendly, prompt and attentive. How this place rates 100+ out of 200+ I have no clue. Puts the Ithaca Commons over priced restaurants to shame, they should take notes.

From Yelp, September 2015 - ...pizza is super!

From TripAdvisor, August 2015 - Delicious Italian food. Very good service. Good price. Home-made meals...Probably the best pizza in town

From Yelp, August 2015 - Great French fries and the meatballs for my sandwich were fresh and tasty.

From TripAdvisor, July 2015 - ...All of the food was quite delicious, and the staff was very courteous.
