Good food. Can be a little expensive. For a grill chicken salad for two is over 21.00. Atmosphere is very pleasant and relaxing.

After a week of vacation in Florida and spending the day traveling back to 20 degree weather, I wanted something and someplace that was delicious and comforting. I had the craving for a wonderful salad and it being St Patty's day I wanted a place that was not overrun with St Patty day revelers. Jo Jo's to the rescue. Jo... More

Overall the food was good. The soup lacked seasoning and was a bit too watery for my taste. The kids meal was very short on Fries. The seafood pizza was a hit. Eggplant Parm was good but needed to be hotter. Chicken Parm looked good. The deserts looked better in the display case than tasted. 7 bucks for a slice... More

I like everything there ,but especially the Lasagna! It's enough for 2 people. There is bar service and a nice wine selection by the glass or bottle. Well priced good food and generous portions make this established place , a go to location .

Jo Jo's never disappoints, the food is excellent, known as peasant Italian fare. Just fabulous. Fantastic flavors with the full range and use of spices; always tasty and multileveled never bland or boring. We take out as well as eat in. The wait staff is superb. The walls are adorned with Italian country side scenes that help transport the diner... More

I went for my birthday with a group of 10 friends and we had a blast!!!! Great food and service. I had the Chicken Marsala and it was delicious - they give you so much you have to take some back with you.

Jo Jo's is your average local, family owned restaurant with authentic Italian dishes. The mozzarella sticks has great batter coating but are rather salty. The pizza is also good but tends to be salty with meat toppings. The service is inconsistent. I've gone in and had wonderful servers and also terrible ones. The level of attentiveness when approaching to identified... More

Good food. Service was good. Seemed confused when we asked them to separate the bill into individual checks. Still an excellent time!
