Pizzeria
Loaded with family traditions, homemade BBQ sauce and a secret family pizza sauce. Owner Joanie Shunia has renovated the space to include a new bar and a bright, welcome interior which house some of the original recipes from the first Village Pizza of Detroit. Flat-screen televisions will fill the dining rooms, four video-gambling machines will occupy one corner, the patio will be open during warm summer months. We offer thin and hand-tossed round pizzas, and the square Sicilian style – similar to the deep-dish Chicago style, but with cheese on top instead of sauce.

We also are famous for our broasted chicken, tasty ribs and fresh and flavorful salads. Come in today and try for yourself!

Joanie's has the best broasted chicken. We love it and the only chicken that tastes just as good reheated.

I met a girlfriend for lunch and we both have dietary restrictions. Our server went out of her way to find out exactly what was in certain items and accommodate us. The food was really good and Joanie the owner even came out to ask how our meal was.
Great gluten free choices and good salads too!! Will definitely go back !!!

This was the first time we visited this restaurant. We had reservations and we seated without a wait. The server was excellent. He went the extra mile to provide information and determine whether the kitchen could accommodate special requests (it did.) The food was typical "pizza restaurant" food. It was good, but not special.

We were there on Saturday evening with a party of 6. The restaurant was packed but the service and food were out of this world good. The owners found time to come by our table and spent some time just talking. We live in Schaumburg but as good as it is, it will become our go to pizza place!

Joanie’s Pizza is a comfortable place and the owner and staff always make us feel welcome. When the weather is good we sit on the deck next to the pond and watch ducks. In the winter we enjoy the warmth of the fireplace and good food and drinks anytime of the year.

Joanie's is simply delicious! Their broasted chicken is incredible, reasonably priced and comes with the best broasted potatoes, breadsticks and coleslaw.
My family also loves their think crust pizzas! We are walking distance from Joanie's and frequent there often and have never been disappointed!

Great food, great waitress, my only issue was that we were placed in a corner table next to a large party with small kids and we would have liked a different placement , which I know will not always be available.

We always have a great meal at Joanie's. The food is consistently great and Joanie is a wonderful host. She cares about what comes out of her kitchen and the result shows up with every visit. She has the best broasted chicken in the area and her pizzas are excellent.

Love the pizza but it is in dire need of remodeling. Bathroom entrance is confusing and needs redesigning. Needs updating throughout. It’s also extremely loud. Could barely hear my date across the table. Not romantic or cozy in any way.
