Located in Tonawanda, New York, Joey's Place is a beloved neighborhood restaurant known for its inviting atmosphere and delicious Italian-American cuisine. Me, Damian, and Cecilia had a fabulous time reviewing some highlights from their takes on Italian classics. If you are looking for a warm meal made with love, Joey's has some great dishes to offer you.
We started our feast off with some fresh Italian wedding soup and some fried eggplant with marinara dipping sauce. These appetizers together were the best combination of comfort and deliciousness.
"I absolutely LOVED the soup. The meatballs were really tender and all the veggies made it super flavorful - I will definitely be getting this again!"
For our main courses, we got to try three of their most ordered meals: Stuffed Shells, Chicken Parmesan, and their classic meat Lasagna. The meatballs across all of the dishes were a tasty highlight, and the pasta was cooked to perfection. My personal favorite out of everything we tried was the stuffed shells-so cheesy and so delicious!
What is a great meal without dessert? We finished off our feast with some cannolis, a slice of tiramisu, and an indulgent Tiramisu Martini. The cannolis were the perfect amount of sweetness, and the tiramisu was rich with coffee and chocolate flavors. Not to mention the martini perfectly captured the essence of the dessert!
Before we left, we also got to sit down with one of the chefs that helped prepare all of our amazing dishes. Alexia has been at Joey's for over a year and has already made such an impact in the kitchen. It was amazing hearing about her experience in the industry and what her favorite dishes to prepare are. While her favorite thing of Joey's menu to eat is the burgers, she loves preparing the Italian wedding soup! Alexis definitely deserves
a special shoutout, she made the experience!
If Italian food is not up your alley, Joey's has a great variety of other dishes to choose from. From burgers to sandwiches to seafood (plus a great drink menu), there is something for everyone!
