We've been there 3 times and haven't been disappointed

The pizza is always top-notch and the gelato is really good. - Not as good as it was in Italy, but pretty good nonetheless. The only complaint? No Canadian bacon/ham available as a pizza topping.

Our card was charged for someone else's bill. This was taken care of -but the pizza was really bad. It was $20.00 for one 14 inch pizza with pepperoni. It was like a bad frozen pizza from a grocery store.

My husband and I ate here. It's a basic pizza place. We shared a 12" and split the toppings we both agreed both halves were bland and not very good.

We brought our kids there and had a great time. The pizza was great, the gelato was great, the server was awesome. He took care of us the whole time.

We eat here every year when arriving in Door County for the Fall Festival. I absolutely love their pizza! The gelato is very good as well, but pretty spendy. It's a great place to stop and get some pizza and the owners are always very helpful and friendly. Place is always clean as well. Will continue to go back every... More

The place came highly recommended. It was walking distancefrom our hotel so we tried it. The recommendations were "right on". It was a popular place that night, and we suspect, most nights.

My wife and I decided to make a mid-afternoon stop for some gelato. It was not rich and creamy as I had expected and had a few ice crystals in it. I think I later heard that they use low-fat milk which may account for it not being creamy. The serving size was extremely small for its price. It certainly... More

I'm from the Chicago area and maybe I'm spoiled from the great pizza we have but the pizza at Jo Jo's is terrible. And how many pizzerias charge extra for carry out? Also if you want GREAT gelato in Door County, go to Double Delites in Egg Harbor.

It' simple, but simply yummy! We always stop in here for a pizza when in Door County. Even tho restaurants abound ( and none of them chain restaurants!) this is a relaxing spot with gelato! Nice place to relax after a day of exploring and shopping.

We decided to stop in when our first choice for pizza had a line out the door. We were seated immediately and served by the owners. Pizza wasn't great and it wasn't terrible; it was just...nice. The owners were friendly and attentive, and if we ever can't get seated somewhere else, it's nice to have a solid Plan B.
