Stopped in for lunch a week ago and tried the buffet. Best eggplant I've ever had. Really tasty, and spiced just right. There was also salad, pasta, chicken, meatballs, soups and desert. The service was great and the atmosphere can't be beat. Sorry that I have lived here for years and never tried this place. I'll be back at Joe's soon.

I will review this place anytime I can.
Joe's Pasta House is absolutely the best Italian food anywhere. I believe I have tried every item on the menu and not one time have I been disappointed.
Joe runs a great restaurant and his staff are some of the best I have ever seen. Then know the menu and they know their customers.
And when Joe has his Prime Rib special Wednesdays....don't miss out.
Make the trip over to Joe's Pasta House for a fantastic event of dining or order for take out.
And if you happen to go when Joe has crab bisque...or a gallon....

After relocating to Albuquerque, NM May 21st, I went looking for an Italian food fix. Olive Garden was close so I made a phone order and went to pick up. I wish I hadn't (all of that will be the subject of a future review). A hotel employee recommended Joe's. We were very happy with all there especially the homemade Bread. It was delicious and came in a big loaf. Strongly recommend this restaurant.
