“Your typical NY Style pizza..”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

As with most southerners..They think a place like Joey's is "real" Italian or Pizza.. it is just NY style street pizza and americanized dishes.. The pizza is ok..(To oily, cheese is nothing special and the pasta is mushy). I am a Italian citizen who lives here and in Italy.. I lived in the Northeast for 45 years.. The pizza is average at best anywhere else but for locals who don't know, they think its excellent... What you don't know can't hurt you:).. Enjoy because there is not much to choose from anyway around these parts.. I would just like to see higher grade and better food.

Thank You for your review, as well as the opportunity to express our response.
We are an Italian-American Family Owned & Operated N.Y. pizzeria.
We appreciate your description of Joey's to be labeled as "New York Street Food".. That's what we are: simple, authentic and affordable.
We do not bake our pies in wood burning ovens.. We use traditional N.Y. Pizza stone ovens. However, we are happy to let you know we do offer Our version of the Italian Style Margherita.. Fresh Mozzerella, Fresh Basil and EVOO cooked our style.
As well as our delicious Sicilian pies, we make a wonderful white pie also.
Italian and N.Y pizza are two different worlds of pizza, however we would love to make your experience with Joey's an excellent one.
Also as for the pasta .. Ask for it "al dente" and we would be pleased to make it happen.
Joey & Family

“You will want one of everything!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

The food was fantastic. We went there for lunch and I had the Pepperoni Sausage Roll...which was delicious. These folks do not scrimp on the anything. Their pizza slices were huge and dripping with cheese. Other members of our party had their spaghetti, chicken parmesan, and a eggplant sub. Everyone reported their meal was the best and wanted to come back for dinner so they could try something else. They even have fresh cannolis. I recommend this place and as a previous reviewer mentioned...get there early because this place gets crowded.

“The Best!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

You'll not find better Italian food in Middle Tennessee. The pizza rivals the best anywhere. The full menu of items is just delicious, but be certain to try the Eggplant Parmesan. It will change your life!

Joey and his family, along with the family recipes they invite you to enjoy, are an experience you will not forget.

“Best Pizza in Nashville”
Reviewed April 3, 2012 via mobile

Joey's House of Pizza is the best pizza in Nashville. In addition to pizza, Joey's has pastas, pizza rolls, breaded chicken, etc. All the food is great. If visiting Nashville, this is a must local eat. Located at the corner of Fessler's Lane & Elm Hill Pike. Good to get there early as the place will get packed during lunch.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

I was just driving down Elm Hill Pike looking for a place to have lunch while on business travel, saw this place and decided to give it a try. The place is very nice inside. There was a very long line, but the staff is very fast. I ordered a slice of the batiatus (stuffed meat lovers) which was huge! But tasted great. I will be returning for sure before my trip is over, next time I'm going for the lasagna, it looked delicious.
