We believe that independent restaurants are the lifeblood of any thriving community. And when the original owner of JoJo’s Italian Restaurant & Pizza decided to sell the restaurant, we saw an amazing opportunity to share the food we love with the Olmsted community we love. It was about more than continuing a legacy, it was about contributing to it. Our family believes in using the best locally sourced ingredients and pairing them with scratch techniques that provide a one of a kind flavor. Family members are here working all aspects of the business from the kitchen, to the table and bar. Our team will take you on a hand-guided culinary tour of Italy as we know it and presented with professionalism and the warmth of your grandmother's dining room table.
We couldn't be more proud or grateful to support and be supported by the wonderful community here in Berea, our current location. We'd like to welcome you to the Jo Jo Carloni family. It is our privilege to serve you.

    From apps to desserts- food was only outdone by the service. My wife and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary here. She had the salmon and I had Chicken Parmigiana, both were Cooked excellently. My only regret… not getting Pizza to go.

    My husband's chicken marsala was excellent. My spaghetti and marinara with a meatball was nothing special. The olive oil accompanying the bread was amazing. To characterize the noise level as "energetic" is kind. It was like eating in a cafeteria. Made me feel like I wanted to bolt my food and get out of there. No lingering over a drink and dessert. I do want to try their pizza. Maybe as carry. out. Our server had tables inside and on the patio and did a good job. Would recommend with caveat that it's loud.

    Nice place that was very open and spacious. Great selection and very good options for anyone who has a gluten allergy. The server was SO helpful to ensure no cross contamination. One guest had the pizza and said it was delicious and others had pasta which was also very good.

    It was okay. Not amazing. Not bad. The food was fine and came out fast though they were busy. We had meatballs, stuffed eggplant, calamari, fried artichokes, salads, and drinks. The sauce is too sweet. Everything was fresh. Not soggy, greasy or overcooked. But the waitress. I read reviews on Google and the bad reviews were about the attitude. She treated us like burdens. Didn't smile. Wasn't honestly very nice and even got rude and argumentative. Refused to tell me a price on a drink then told me a range and it was above that range. Didn't ever ask or bring water. Didn't refill. I had to get up and ask at the bar for things. The owner was really nice. Really. It's not the best Italian though the prices outside of happy hour are a bit high. It's not Luca. But it's okay for a neighborhood place.

    We were in town for the Cleveland Boat Show and picked JoJo Carlonis based upon other people's reviews. Alisa was amazing and the food was delicious. My only minor criticism is that the portions could have been bigger based upon the price. We are used to Chicago portions. Outstanding experience otherwise. The Gnocchi Gorgonzola and the Vodka sauce was the best I have had and our daughter, who has Celiac, loved the Gluten Free pasta.

    Alyssa was a great waitress. It all started with us entering the restaurant and the hostess greeting us with a smile and laughter. Food was great, however, the tomatoe sauce tasted more like paste. Other than that we loved our night out for dinner.

    Liked the food, however was upset that you can only get happy hour discounts if you are seated in the lounge. Lounge was full so we had to pay twice the amount for the appetizers we ordered just because we were sitting a few feet away from the lounge. That was hard to take. Service was great.

    I loved everything from the ambiance to the dessert. The food was outstanding, as was the service. Very quick to take care of you. Food came out in a reasonable amount of time. The only thing I would change is the bread. Fresh white Italian instead of the wheat, hard rolls.
