Our Meal at Jo Jo's: Best Italian on Ventnor Ave

This restaurant has undergone extensive physical renovations, and the atmosphere and food have also been upgraded significantly. Great service, no wait on a summer weekend, and the food and portions were very satisfying. We will return frequently. And...there's a produce garden next door that is... read more

This restaurant has undergone extensive physical renovations, and the atmosphere and food have also been upgraded significantly. Great service, no wait on a summer weekend, and the food and portions were very satisfying. We will return frequently. And...there's a produce garden next door that is being cultivated to provide fresh produce directly to the restaurant. Very nice!

We ate here last night, outdoors, a party of 7 and we were not disappointed, This use to be a family restaurant serving Italian, Pizza, hoagies etc. But now it is an upscale Italian restaurant with homemade pasta from south philly and fresh seafood. We started off with the house salad for 7 which was delicious especially since I love... More

I went to jojo's as i always do the good was really great even the portion was a tiny smaller but the quality was really good i believe that all this bad reviews about the restaurant are from people who don't understand the different between regular pasta and fresh home made pasta. And about the service the stuff are very... More

We just purchased a home in ventnor and we're looking for a nice local restaurant hoping to go frequently due to its proximity. What we experienced I would wish on my worst enemy. First there was a huge delay for my dinner. I was finally given an explantion that they messed up the order. After another 15 minutes and it's... More

We live nearby and always bring our guests here to eat, I love the menu and the upscale dishes. I know some have written about the new management, but we have had very good meals here and I wonder why they don't change the name, as it is much more than a Pizzeria. You can byob too, which makes for... More

Other than Anthony's Coal fired pizza in Palm Beach Gardens, FL JoJo's has the best pizza margherita I have had outside of Italy. Thin crust, great mozzarella but not too much. Octopus salad was excellent. The ricotta pie was as good as my mother-in-law used to make and that is saying something. Not expensive. The place is great. Only drawback... More

We visited Jo Jo's last week because in the past we have had enjoyable food at a good value. This time, unfortunately, we had neither. It is obvious that new management is trying to turn an excellent family restaurant into a fine dining establishment, and they are failing that endeavor.They shold have changed the name of the restaurant to let...

We have gone to JoJos many times and enjoyed the ample portions and friendly service. However, when we went this past Labor Day weekend, we were surprised to find that the ownership had changed along with the quality of the restaurant. By 7:30, the restaurant was still half empty- on a Saturday night of a holiday weekend. The main problem... More
