“Avoid this Italian grill”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

My husband and I visited treasure island and decided to give this a go because of the reviews, but were bitterly disappointed to say the least, they had a large party in which made the place very noisy and the service really slow, we did not get our starter for ages and it was awful Italian sausage in tomato sauce which was so salty I could not eat any at all. The main was chicken bolognese and that consisted of spaghetti which tasted terrible ans smothered in meat sauce but the absolute worst was that there was about 4 pieces of sliced chicken on top and that was. Covered in melted cheese ( no mention of this in description on menu and also mushrooms which I dislike in food ) therefore was unable to eat any of my meal and when the waitress came over to ask me if I was done I just said yes even though it would have been quite apparent that I had hardly touched it and she just removed the offending meal one place I will not be returning to and not recommending in a hurry

“#1 on the island for me!”
Reviewed September 10, 2011

Love tis place. We used to live in Tierra Verde and now have to travel 5 hours to visit. Whenever we are up here this place is a must do. I have introduced many friends to Jojo's (Tony and Nellos) and now they have become regulars on their visits here. Their eggplant is wonderful as is all their pasta and seafood dishes. I am shocked it's not rated #1 on the island as it is #1 in my book.

“OUTSTANDING PIZZA”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

The new name is Tony & Nello's. We have ordered pizza here several times over the past few months. The best I've ever had. Excellent crust. Cooked in a wood burning oven (you can't miss the smell of the wood walking by). Wide variety. Outstanding flavor.

“Number One Italian Restaurant in Florida”
Reviewed December 31, 2009

I love this place, the pizza is out of this world and all the Italian dishes are hugh portions, you will not leave hungry at this restaurant.
You know it's the real deal when you walk in and hear the cooks talking in Italian. I never miss stopping here for lunch/dinner whenever I go to Ft. DeSota. I spend the afternoon kayaking and then to Jo Jo's it's my special treat.
I've taking family here from up North and they love it, absolutely love it.
Go ahead and treat yourself and once you try it it will surely be on your return list for the best Italian food in Florida.
