Rita & Joe’s is an upscale Italian restaurant in Jersey City offering delicious, authentic Italian meals in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. When you step through our doors, you will be transported back to a time where quality and attention to detail were key to creating a beautiful meal. Rather than rushing our diners through their meal, we encourage them to relax, take their time and enjoy their meal. This improves the overall experience and allows people to take some time out of their busy day to reconnect with one another and to truly taste and enjoy their food.
We serve lunch and dinner daily, with menu options ranging from seafood, soups and salad to sandwiches, pizza, pasta and entrees. Our full bar includes an extensive wine list, so there is always something perfect to pair with your meal. A trip to Rita & Joe’s isn’t complete without trying our famous Italian Meatballs, but make sure to save some room for one of our decadent desserts. Our large dining area is perfect for everything from a romantic dinner for two to a large party or event. We host private parties, business meetings, corporate functions and more, so consider hosting your next event with us. We also provide off-premise catering for any size events.
