My husband and I went for our 1st Valentine's dinner as husband and wife. Our rehearsal dinner was at Papa Joe's last October, so it's a sentimental place for us. We don't go out to "nicer" places like this often, so it's a special treat. The salad was fresh and crisp, the bread warm and tasty. The dinner (filet mignon) was cooked to perfection. This place has the right ambiance, our server was knowledgeable and the service was great. We will be back again!

Went here for my birthday. Dinner was good. Server was very new. Had to ask for more wine — twice. Was overcharged. Salads were supposed to come with the meal but we were charged extra for them

Always yummy! Service was lacking last night. Jackie was non-attentive and slow. It took saying something to get water refills and additional drinks. We weren’t in a hurry and it was a very yummy dinner, just feel the service should of been more attentive.

Enjoyed our evening out at Papa Joe's. Food was delicious, wine was scrumptious and thank goodness it was quiet and you could talk without shouting over noise. We enjoyed ourselves.

We went to try their meatloaf Monday’s and I must say it was the best meatloaf I have ever had. Came with mashed potatoes and a salad. Very good value and our waiter Anthony was fantastic! Good drinks too!

Very crowded, server was very polite but stretched between large tables. Food was very good and authentic, portions were adequate

Used a gift card we received. Food is traditional Italian and was very good. Iacomini’s is a local institution in Akron and has a very classic, traditional feel. Service is efficient and friendly, and one certainly gets the sense that most people who work there have been at it a long time. You know what you’re going to get here.

Food was excellent but service was slow. Busy Friday night and apparently waitress had too many tables.
