Pronto Joey's recent review in the Post-Standard

 Joey's Classic    Pronto Joey's




What people are saying about Joey's:

I used to complain about having to go to Syracuse. Now I can't wait to go because of this restaurant. From beginning to end the meal and service was outstanding. I tell EVERYONE about Joey's and once you have eaten there you will too! Not to mention we normally get there after 9:00pm and it is still great!
Pros: reasonable, right off NYS thruway, everything is great
Cons: none


This is the finest "unknown" or unrated restaurant in the Northeast. Everything served is done to perfection and I've often traveled quite some distance out of my way to dine at Joey's. You will not find a finer filet mignon anywhere, even at the best steak houses. Sauces are to die for and the service is outstanding. I always eat downstairs because I love the bar and atmosphere.Pros: Filet mignon, perfect, Everything
Cons: There are none


Every so often I have a meeting near this restaurant with some local colleagues. The first time they arranged dinner here I was more than pleasantly surprised. Excellent and authentic Italian cuisine. Near Carrier Circle and exit 35 on I 95. Don't miss this.


I can't believe I'm the first to give this place a review. Joey's is a "don't miss"! Classic Italian cuisine in a formal atmosphere. This is a place where you can get dressed up and not stick out like a sore thumb.The service is attentive without being overbearing.The food is great. If you're staying in one of the Carrier Circle hotels this is the place to eat. If you're not, it's still worth the drive. Even if you're not in the mood for Italian, the Filet Mignon is the best around!


Great Place!: Great food always. Probably the best place to go if you want an excellent meal with great quick service. I recommend the Filet Mignon, absolutely superb! Great place for a date, and you don't have to worry about he/she not liking it.


The best.............: Everytime I travel to Syracuse, I stay at Carrier Circle just so I can eat at Joey's. The best veal francaise I have ever had....and I've had a lot of veal francaise.The atmosphere is wonderful and the service has always been terrific.I just wish it was closer to New Jersey.


Food that you dream about: If you love Italian food this is the place to go. I have eaten lunch and dinner here and the food is always superb. The service is quick and friendly.
