    Old-style place, big plates with lots of food on em. It's usually busy on a Friday night, so book early or go for the bar. There are some real characters on the wait staff

    Best Veal Parmigiana ever! Love the newly remodeled place, lighter. Waiters have been there for ages and most have good senses of humor. Be prepared to wait for up to an hour, but the bar in the back has nice seating and sports on.

    Old school Italian it was with California prices to boot. Coming back here is almost a certainly for me, as the pictures and local fanfare are enough to christen the allure of Original Joes. I'll be sure to arrive before midnight this time around.

    have ate here a few times, its good but nothing I crave over and over. Its a San Jose classic though so you have to visit and eat dinner at least once.

    Fantastic in every way. Another patron mentioned you feel like frank sinatra when you're there. They'd be right. Veal picatta is wonderful, enough to make me a fan for life. The atmosphere and service reminds me of being in the movie Goodfellas if anyone recalls that, less murder more friends, family, great food, mangia!
