Came here due to the rating on TripAdvisor. Everything was delicious. They start you off with warm delicious bread and a zucchini bruschetta I couldn't stop eating. We ordered the fried calamari which was one of the best I've had. By the time the main meal came I was full. But i managed to eat a piece of my fried... More

This restaurant was about a mile from our hotel. It's very nicely appointed and the menu offers a very varied selection of fine Italian food. On the night we were there the service was extremely slow. We were seated immediately as only 80% of the tables were occupied. It was 20 minutes before we were offered beverages and another 20...

Old school service (I.E. GOOD) and a full bar. Chicken parm was on point. Bread basket overflowing. Husband liked the lasagna and the pasta fagioli soup, BFF liked the panzarotti and the ricotta cheesecake. Also ordered the PB pie, which I did not taste but it got great reviews. My side of meatballs was very good. I'd definitely go back.... More

Been all over this area, and I've had mussels everywhere, but none compare to JoJo's. Appetizer in red sauce with some heat. Outstanding

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.
