Nice restaurant with great food and staff. I had a small pizza that would have been enough to feed two. It was excellent.

This place looks like a normal pizza place from the outside. Was not sure we wanted to go in but were did and very glad we did. The food was very good, the wait staff was very friendly. The inside was more of a dine in restaurant than a pizza parlor. We would differently go back.

We were greeted with a friendly smile and seated right away. Once seated one of the owners greeted us with bread and bruschetta and a smile welcoming us. The other older owner was an unfriendly guy, he argued with the Hostess that seated us to move us to the other section but she said that she was told to seat... More

I found this gem on the site. Do not be swayed by the outside. Inside is an inviting restaurant, not a diner or a pizza joint. The service was excellent, as were the prices. I had read about the shrimp parmesan and it was amazing!! We had a nice wine and salad along with good bread. If I am back... More

Enjoyed a nice lunch with good service. We were waited on quickly and the food was very good. There was never a wait for drinks or having someone check on us to see if we were happy. I wish all restaurants could be this "hands on" to make your meal a pleasant experience. Will definitely go back.

Word of mouth brought us to this Italian restaurant, like going back in time to Waterbury,Ct. Old Italian décor, big booths but the food was so good. We arrived at 5;45 in time for the early bird special by accident but glad we did, plated of pickled squash on the table, fresh rolls, appetizer for 2 of steamed mussels in... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the cozy atmosphere when we walked in. The dark wood and murals on the walls made this a warm place. I ordered the small Pietro pizza and had to take half of it home. It was delicious with big hunks of lump crab meat and shrimp in a vodka sauce. Yum! My husband had the... More

Unfortunately, there didn't seem to be many good restaurants to eat at in West Atlantic City, so when I visited Jo Jo's with a few colleagues for dinner, we were very impressed. The chicken parmigiana was delicious and the service was very good as well. I look forward to returning to Jo Jo's next time I'm in ACY.

Its a little far from the main strip of A.C. but if you are out that way stop... Food was fantastic and very authentic! Its a little pricey for being so far out but not outrageous
