Try the chicken dishes or something outside the run-of-the-mill. You can still get pasta on the side, and I think they do a great job on their other plates.

While so many of our guests love our housemade red sauce & alfredo dishes; it is really refreshing to read that you enjoy our chicken dishes & perhaps our pan sauce entrees. Did you know we also offer hand-cut, natural steaks & chops? Thank you for sharing we are consistent & do a great job on other entrees in addition... More

I have lived in Rio Rancho for many years and Joe's Pasta house has always been a favorite. Not only is the food delicious but the service is great. I especially love the salmon, but my family loves the pasta dishes.

Went to a early dinner, basically the only ones there, food was good, service good.Yet the feeling from staff was that we were intruding. As this the only Italian restaurant in town food was good.

Went for a business lunch. The rest of the party chose the lunch buffet, so, I went over and inspected the fare and it didn't look all that good. The pasta looked runny, the sauce, not so hot and the selections weren't that great. I ordered chicken off the menu and it was ok, but, nothing to write home about.

I go here often and enjoy the food. I usually order the South West Chicken Alfredo to give me that New Mexican twist. The service is good and even ordering out is done accurately and always ready in time.

My wife and I go there for dinner about once a month. It's a little pricey but the food is excellent and the service is top notch. The owner is usually around and he keeps things humming like a well-oiled machine.

Always good food and service here. Ambiance 50-60's retro with red leather booths and chairs. Cheerful, clean, and dishes are well done.

The food is always good at this restaurant. It is small. They do not take reservations unless there are 8 or more people. There is a person that plays music while you eat. The owner is very nice. The waiters and waitresses are friendly an efficient.

Have eaten there many times. A large menu with many traditional favorites. Love the bruschetta with bread before ordering. Excellent tomato sauce for any dish. Good wine selection, friendly attentive service, comfortable dining room. Not really anything to complain about. Will definitely return.

Thank pp b
