Stress and Bland Food in the Citta – Jo-Jo's offers two things not unique in Saint Pete pizza subs and terrible service. I have eaten there three times. The first time the food was mediocre. The pizza bland and they messed up the order they put black olives on the pizza when we asked they didn't. The salad was typical and the garlic rolls were just plain garlic rolls.
We planned on not going back. That is until we saw a Groupon. I figured maybe it was just an off night and for $10 for $20 I figured lets give it a shot. I placed my order for dinner as stated on the Groupon and when I arrived to pick up my food I was told the Groupon was dine in only. I asked where it said that on the fine print. They said it says dinner right there. I said dinner does not mean dine-in it was clear they would not honor the Groupon I left. This is unacceptable if you offer fine print put any restrictions in the fine print. What makes thiseven more disappointing is my wife had used a Groupon for carry-out about 2 months ago so they flat out lied to me when they said they never take them.
I guess it pays to be a pretty lady. It is amazing this place had not a soul eating there on a Friday night and would rather throw away food than honor their agreements. Maybe the waitstaff was hungry
I even asked to speak with an owner or manager and was told I could only talk to a server. I will never go back and recommend you skip this place and go to a busy Italian restaurant that wants your business.
Jo Jo's rocks !!! – Jo Jo's Rocks!!! I love this place, everyone does !!
The food is delicious and the staff is always friendly. I love their zuppa di mare and the veal sorrentino is to die for. Best italian food in town !!!
Very Good – Very good, fresh food and the price is right!
Muscles in spciy sauce were great, as is the pizza and other dishes.
Best Italian food in Florida!! – I went to Jo-Jo's in Citta on St. Petersburg, Fl last night and it was one of the most pleasurable dining experiences of my life. The wait staff was very attentive, the decor is beautiful and the food was to die for. Freshly baked bread alone made the trip worth it. All of the appetizers and entrees were extremely fresh and tasty. The sauces were delicate and full bodied. And the deserts - most made on the premises and you would be hard pressed not to order them all and share with the table. They even had live entertainment at no cost. Tony, the owner was there and checked on my table personally. They are even know for their after dinner coffees!!! Wonderful. If you live within a 2 hour drive of this restaurant, it's well worth the drive for a dining experience that you'll never forget.
Fresh, Delicious, Amazing food and service, reasonable prices – The shrimp scampi appetizer was fresh, perfectly seasoned and delicious. Our waiter Michael brought us hot fresh homemade italian bread to soak up the scampi sauce. It was some of the best bread we've ever had. We ordered a cheese pizza. The sauce was perfect and the cheese was delicious. Salads came with the meals, but we barely touched them. We didn't want to waste any room on lettuce. Our lasagna and penne with vodka sauce entrees were delicious too. The portions were big. The sauces on both were yummy. We were barely able to fit a few bites of our entrees before requesting doggie bags. The food here is incredible. We can't wait to go back.
