This was my very first visit to this establishment. My coworker and I was in the area working and decided to visit on a week night based on the Yelp reviews. This restaurant is very cozy and welcoming. Chelsea was our waitress and she was very nice and attentive. I ordered the calamari and my coworker ordered wings as appetizers. For our main meals, I ordered the special - tetrazzini with shrimp instead of chicken. My coworker had the lasagna. Everything was excellent. Chelsea brought out some garlic rolls that were oh so delicious! Both of our meals came with salad. I wasn't able to eat my entire entree. My food was excellent!! I would definitely visit this restaurant if I am ever in the area again.

Fantastic little place! Food was delicious and the staff was great. They squeezed us in without a reservation and it was worth it!!! Can't wait to come back and try something else.

It's nice to find a nice hard working family owned business! Great job

Amazing food! Loved it! My husband and I came here on a whim and boy, am I glad we did. Jo Jo Carloni's is currently located in a small strip mall and you can easily pass it by without knowing that it's there. They will be moving to a much larger place in Berea this winter and I'm glad to hear that. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Even the staff on the younger side were very professional. I really didn't know what I wanted to eat and quite honestly, we weren't expecting much when we walked in so the amazing menu caught me off guard. There were several appetizers I wanted to try (calamari, mozzarella balls, and stuffed banana peppers were the three I will be back for) as well as several main dishes that looked amazing so it was hard to decide. I finally went with the Veal Marsala and it was to die for! Probably the best I've ever had. Dinners come with either soup or salad but do yourself a favor and get the Italian wedding soup. It was delicious! I loved it! Dinners aren't cheap ($20 for my Veal Marsala) but the portions are large and I felt you got your moneys worth. I didn't feel like having a drink that night but they had a wine list consisting of Italian wines that was hard to pass up. I will save room for those next time. I also saw that they take $10 off bottles of wine for take out or delivery. That's a bargain! My husband had pizza. I took a bite and really liked it as well. As far as dessert goes, we took cannoli's to go and they were excellent. The other desserts, all home made, looked fabulous too. I will be back and when they are closer to me in Berea, I'm sure I'll be a regular!

The food here is absolutely amazing. We even got to meet the chef after ordering the food. Everyone here is really friendly and homemade. Even the dessert is homemade. I will come back here again.
