Top Review: “I’ve been trying to get here for a while because I heard it was the best pizza in Richmond. I’d say it was really good, probably not the best but definitely will recommend this brick oven pizza. Came in on a Saturday afternoon. There were a few people but not busy. The pizza oven looks so cool. I wonder if it takes long to get pizzas if they are busy because it’s just the one oven. Maybe not because the pizzas we got came out real chick. We came in and placed our order at the counter. We sat ourselves and the staff brought the food and drinks to us at our table. We only got one drink but if we wanted another I guess we would have had to go back to the counter to place a separate order. Not really sure though. The staff was very friendly, the food came out quick and hot, and would return if in the area.”William V.

Jo-Jo’s does not disappoint. Tried cheese and pepperoni along with some amazing garlic knots. Their sauce really stands out. No surprise that the owner is a great hardworking guy from Brooklyn. Don’t miss out on hitting this place up for some excellent pizza.”Richard V.

Top Review: “Mary Angela’s has some of the very best pizza in town. The ingredients are always fresh. My favorites are the Mary Angela’s Special with a variety of ingredients and the Eggplant Parmesan pizza, with fresh basil, which really adds to the flavor. The calamari appetizer is large and is cooked just right. The lasagna is delicious. The salads are generous. When I order the salad with chicken strips, it is enough for two good meals. When I order for delivery, they are pretty quick, which is great considering they are freshly made.”Rosemary W.

Top Review: “Loved the fun flavors and toppings of this pizza. The crust was fluffy and crispy all at the same time. We came in with 6 people and were seated right away for lunch on a weekday. The decor was cute all decked out for the holidays. We got a large crab pizza, large goat cheese and large custom with white sauce, chicken and Roma tomatoes. We had soooo many leftovers. Everything was delicious. The crab was a pleasant surprise as it wasn’t fishy. loved the white sauce on it. Would definitely return if I’m back in the area!”Justine D.
