Uncle Joe’s has become an absolutely “must go to” place for us when we need some super-good Italian food. Don't let the name make you think it's only about pizza! The atmosphere and all of the people who work there are friendly and welcoming and it’s truly a pleasant place with cheerful checkered tablecloths, all sorts of photos and memorabilia... More

You MUST eat here while visiting Geneva, NY! Here's exactly what to order... Beans & Greens or Susie's Hot Greens and 1/2 loaf garlic bread to start. The famous tossed house salad with house dressing and crumbly blue. Try a cup of the chicken noodle (better than your mother's). The Big Al - Genoa salami, ham, provolone cheese, mayo, onion,tomato,... More

We were in town again for wine tasting and had to make a return visit. Again my husband got the spaghetti and meatballs and was very happy. I got the broiled fish with fries and a side of beans and greens. The beans and greens were just as good as I remembered. The fish was ample and almost too much... More

We bought the steak and cheese sandwich, onion rings, and ceaser salad with chicken. All was very good. I'm looking forward to having dinner in the restaurant. It reminds me of a typical neighborhood Italian restaurant.

The spicy greens were very good as was the Small Al that we got. The service was not very quick but overall it was a good dinner.

Ordered the ziti, was pretty good but the portion seems a little small for what I paid. Atmosphere was very nice. Next time I'll try the pizza.

Good sauce, homemade soups, pizza, subs and specialties. Meals are consistent and services is good. Delicious fresh bread. A hometown favorite run like a well oiled machine. Save room for homemade desserts.
