MMMMMMMMMMMM for the pizza – I never had anything else except the pizza. I don't go to a pizza place and expect 5-star service and high-end decor especially in Latrobe. I absolutely love their pizza. I consider myself very picky about pizza and I've tasted pizzas all around the world. In this area (Greensburg, Latrobe) this is one of the better pizzas I have had. I don't expect to get a good pizza in this area but this place I do. Here is my pick for the areas best pizza. They know how a good pizza should be cooked. The cheese should be a little charred from the high heat that a pizza is supposed to be cooked at. The pizza should be seasoned and it is. I will keep getting their pizza unless somebody else buys the place.
WORST FOOD?SERVICE I'VE HAD IN A WHILE!! – Based on the decor and overall ambiance of the business, I should have turned and run upon entering.
The waitress was inpatient and short. The two managers (what seemed to be managers or possibly owners) were sitting directly behind me. After receiving an overpriced (iceberg pile of lettuce) for a "House Salad", the waitress delivered my unique choice of Meatball hoagie. Being that this place is an Italian Restaurant, I assumed that such an entree would be delectable. After noticing that I hadn’t taken more than 2 bites from my hoagie (almost ten minutes later) the "manager" approached with a Styrofoam container and said "here"..... I explained to her that the hoagie had no taste and that the bread was soggy. She replied, mind you she was the manager on duty, "FINE!", then preceded to turn to the waitress with a short demeanor and say “Just take it off the check!". Within a few moments the waitress dropped off my check without saying a word to me. I never saw or heard from them again.
So, in closing I was appallingly offended by:
1.) The ambiance (paunchy and out of date)
2.) The food (at least the meatball hoagie) was terrible.
3.) Service was abrasive and rude.
I will not be returning.
Not recommended – I've only gone to Latrobe Jioios one time and was disappointed. It might just be that I am from Greesburg and I'am so used to the Greesburg Jioios food that I am naturally turned off by Latrobes. When I went their I tried a peice of plane pizza and it just wasnt the same, the crust and sauce they have in my opinion is not a good combination. The rest of their food and service is OK but not great. I WOULDNT recommend eating at Latrobe Jioios.
Out of towner - – I am from Michigan and visit my family back in Greensburg. They know I LOVE the pizza from Jioio's and usually have it each weekend I come back. I love it and I love them!
