Penne Vodka was a little to spicy but had been told that ahead of time. I feel the spiciness took away from other flavors. Waitress and staff were attentive to our table.

I absolutely love this place. The food is always delicious and the staff is amazing. They are practicing good social distancing and I felt very safe the way they had the tables as well as how they were practicing and maintaining sanitizing procedures.

Good food, only suggestions are the

sausage and peppers are HOT if you have a sensitive tongue do not order this .

The gnocchi were over done and like eating raw dough.

I was there a year ago and food was better.

SERVICE, was AWESOME, our server (I wish I could remember her name) was fantastic. Super sweet, attentive and easy on the eyes.

Noticing a change in food portions and quality.. even the ranch dressing has a new taste which should be told to customer upon ordering. The ranch had a strong rosemary flavor, even though the server said it was dill (which not many people enjoy). I took one bite and left it. Server never offered a new salad or soup instead. Dinner was ravioli ... I asked for Alfredo sauce and boy did I get it! My 4 raviolis were floating in a sea of white sauce, which had a slight warm temperature. I also noted on Open Table that it was for a birthday.... no small dessert was offered (would have paid for it even).

Jo Jo Carloni's is our go-to restaurant for lunch, dinner, or drinks at the bar. It is owner-operated, which I always think makes a HUGE difference in the dining experience. The owners, John and Jennifer are almost always there, and you can almost always count on John stopping at the table to sincerely ask how everything is, and talk with the guests. Some of my favorite items are their meatballs, pizza, the artichoke appetizer, and the lemon mascarpone cake. They have a great wine list and for a cocktail, their berry mojito is outstanding.

The restautant was nice and clean. Our server was superb. However, the menu didnt have any of the items we tried ordering. What we did order had zero flavor. The pork chops were bland. The mashed potatoes were thick as clay. Nothing we had was seasoned at all. Theres not even a salt n pepper shaker in site.

This was our first time at this restaurant and even with a reservation we were initially seated at a very awkward 4 top pushed against a wall. We had to go back to the host station to ask to be moved to an open booth that was far better set up for a part of 4. The service was friendly and efficient but service staff wore their face masks just covering their mouths and not their noses. While the Caesar salad was tasty it did not seem worth the extra $3 charge from the house salad. I had the chicken a la JoJo’s and was disappointed. I had hoped for more tomatoes and mushrooms and the chicken was tender but bland. That being said my husband enjoyed his penne and the couple we were with enjoyed their dinners. The meal was well priced and I would consider eating there again but would definitely order something else.

We were certainly concerned that none of the staff was wearing mask, although they had social distancing. But none of the staff were wearing mask and neither were the barteneders. Although I understand that they weren’t concern. But there is still no cure, you can shake it off and act like it doesn’t exist but truly the numbers don’t stop. Be concerned for others not yourself own thoughts NO CUrE YET People. Don’t ignore react please.

I went to the website and really was hoping to try the pasta with bolognese sauce but was informed by our server they didn't have so I tried the meatlover dish. Perhaps my expectations were too high with the yearning for the sauce and the chef was super busy but the price charged was too much for what I got. We'll go back again and see if it's better next time.
