All I can say is "Yum"! Food is outstanding! Love it for lunch and dinner - our favorite place to eat out! Homemade pasta, specials every day, and the service is wonderful!

They have a lobster , veal dish that includes ravioli stuffed with crab meat that is so good I make sure somebody in the party orders it.Their bolognese is second to none , in my opinion. Plus there are always daily specials. I could not recommend ANYPLACE over... More

I have tried to eat here several times and had to leave twice before finishing. There is an open drain in the floor in the dining room. I also bought some if their cookies from the bakery. Had to throw them away, tasted like the smell of a dirty mop. I'm sorry, but I've tried to like this place.

Outstanding Italian food. Homemade by chefs right in view of the comfy dining room. Every dish, from appetizer to entree is very well done. I only wished I had leftovers! Instead we 'rolled' out of there, so very happy, and very full!! Loved it, pasta, excellent. Lamb, succulent, veal, perfect. Then there were the desserts. Unbelievable.

I moved back to the area almost a year ago. Josephs is nearby and I was hoping to make it my "go to" restaurant. First time was for lunch and the food and service were excellent. Each time after that was for dinner and the food was good, although a bit salty the last time. The service however was poor... More

We met friends for an early dinner since they don't take reservations for smaller parties. We didn't get a booth and had to wait a bit to get our waitress.The bread served was hot but way too salty. The dinners were very good and portions not too large. Waitress was ok but she brought our tiramisu dessert after the coffees... More

Joseph's is an upscale Italian place in Bradford Massachusetts. The food is very good they have a bakery there too so their bread is delightful. Love their homemade soup.

I visited for lunch on a Sunday for one of my favorite dishes, Bolognese. Over the years, my wife & I have eaten here many times, but had moved away. I always remember their fantastic salad, bread and their dishes—always prepared correctly and always enjoyable, and decided to make the drive for what I knew would be wonderful food. On... More

I had heard that Joseph's had good food, so I went with a friend to try it out. We were not disappointed! I had a Fichi e Prosciutto pizza, a nice change from the usual sauce and cheese. My friend had Mushroom Ravioli , which she loved. I will definitely go back.

We had dinner here the other day. We each had a chicken and pasta dish and the were both excellent (Chicken Limon and Chicken Saltimbocca). The service was also exceptional (wish I remembered her name), she was always on top of anything we needed. The restaurant was very crowded and they don't take reservations for small parties so plan on... More
